This show is kinda underrated if you ask me. Honestly,I've seen far worse shows on CN.
But the premise is unoriginal and stupid. I mean,a kid is transferred to a animal school where he meets a monkey who's a complete JACKASS and he has to go there eveyday. It's like foster's home for imaginary friends meets camp lazlo! And the show also has a lot of plotholes,like shouldn't adam be eaten by now?
The animation,though,I like. It's definitely not the best,but at least there's some effort put into it.
The characters are the main thing I hate about this show. Adam is a whiny kid who's a complete and total geek. It's like he's mac from foster's,except that he has down syndrome. Jake is no better either,he's kinda like bloo - a COMPLETE AND TOTAL ASSHOLE!!! But at least bloo is funny as hell,but jake is just disgusting,annoying and unfunny. In fact,in one episode I think I saw him licking his butt or something. The other characters are average though they can also be complete jackasses at times!
The humour is hit and miss. When the show relies on butt jokes,it fails MISERABLY!!! But when it's not it can actually be a little funny. The humour reminds of spongebob,but at least it doesn't reuse the same jokes.
Overall, an okay show. It's not exactly my cup of tea, but at least it's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than secret mountain fort awesome,problem solverz and out of jimmy's head!
My Gym Partner's a Monkey is a very underrated cartoon that I don't get why everyone hates, but yeah it is very underrated considering how it only lasted 4 and a half seasons running from 2005-2008. But yeah I actually like this show. Despite it's negative reception, it actually was a huge success because it received academy awards, about 2.5 million views from kids ages 2-11, also ran on Kids WB, and had about 5 TV movies. I'm just going to go over what I think of this show.
Decent character designs.
Pretty good storylines.
Great and fitting background music.
Good show that saved cartoon network from going downhill.
The humor was quite good, the only thing I didn't like about it was the butt jokes.
Always the same setting.
Ended too early. I honestly didn't think Thanksgiving Carol was a nice way to end the series. The episode wasn't bad though.
I just don't get how CN could take away Gym Partner, Foster's, Billy and Mandy, Ed Edd n Eddy just to fit room for that CN Real crap. Oh well, Cartoon Network is pretty much dead now the only saviours are: Regular Show, [adult swim], Cartoon Planet, Dreamworld Dragons and Tenkai Knights.
When I first hear of this show, I thought it would be great like Ed, Edd n Eddy but I almost got the opposite result. First off, why are the animals last names similar to thier species? It fails to sound convincing. The plot lines also vary. Some souned great like the one where Adam and Jake be one player to play football, the one where the duo try to get thier coaches job back from a cheetah and the one where Jake and two of his friends steakout on Adam. Others however are pathetic and made me gag, not with laughter, but by how annoying they were, not to mention stupid. For example, in one episode, Jake gets sent to a school for plants. Plants? Then the episode Sidekicked was stupid as it made no sence. Oh, and who could forget Making the grade and its dumb plot line?
Now for the characters: I liked some of them. Adam Lyon was also liked Slips, Lupe, the assistant ferret, the frog principal and some minor background characters. Windsor and Ingrid are sort of likable but the others like that shark bully and the rhino teacher, I cant stand. I really cant stand Jake most of all. He`s Fanboy & ChumChum annoying. Plus, he`s like baboon from weasle: He goes overboard with his butt to the point where I`m desperate to change the channel. Some of the jokes were funny but the gross ones almost took the thrill out of the good ones are some episodes I can stand but a little more than half of them I`d rather watch something else. All I can say is, Cartoon Network could have done better with this show.
This show is just garbage, the voice acting is bad, the jokes are terrible and they are poorly written and very poorly executed. As for the idea of the show it is just really really stupid! I mean a kid going to0 school, is that the best these people could come up with! Also, probably the most annoying part of this show is that the pacing is just really bad since it is the same thing over and over again. Really, not joking it really is the same over and over again. But, to say the very least do not watch this show seriously, it is that bad now there are worst shows out there but this comes very close to the really bad ones!(like Sidekick, Pearlie, and Tak and The Power of So, with all of this said please do not watch this show!
Of all the offensive kids ever depicted in an animated series (Ian Kelley, Bessie Higgenbottom), Adam Lyon makes even Ruthie from One Big Happy look like angels in comparison.
My Gym Partner's a Monkey is the absolute WORST animated show ever allowed on the Cartoon Planet. A show about some milk and water little creep of a boy who goes to a wrong school (yes, the principal is evil) & the various stupid situations that not even the creators of Skunk Fu would touch with rubber gloves on. And to top if off, the little troglodyte is being bullied by a jerk who happens to be his school's principal.
The best thing for CN to do with this turgescent abomination of a cartoon, is to have it buried at sea, but then again, the ocean's is already polluted as is
Well, honestly, I was a teenager when this show came on for its run. I praise for Adam Lyon's misadventures in an all-animal school. The wacky antics of the storyline and writing are amazing! I like how the show combines middle school life with anthropomorphic animals! It's like a mix between Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide & George of the Jungle to create a fantastic masterpiece! The characters are well written, and my favorite would be Ingrid Giraffe because she's lovestruck for Adam, and my favorite episodes centering her are "Save the Drama for Your Llama" & "Ingrid Through the Out Door". Overall I give this show a 10/10.
This is not a very good show. It's also the worst show on Cartoon Network! I also believe this show is stealing ideas from other shows. I hate it because of the humor sometimes mostly. The humor gets more worse than you expect. Lastly I want to explain the characters:
Adam Lyon: An annoying kid who goes to an animal school
Jake Spidermonkey: An idiotic chimp that always gets into trouble
Other animal students: Idiots! Because they never listen to Adam.
This show is too stupid and less entertaining, I especially hate Jake than the others. This show should never deserve a good rating! Anyone agree with me?
This didn't make my Top 10 Of My Cartoonetwork Best shows Because it just wasnt good enough I think it needed some better drawing but I loved the plot it's just one those thing you've wished you came up with but here's the thing about this show if Cartoonetwork shows Reruns I bet you wouldn't like because they would show the beginning of the series episode the show are always better later in the series cause there newer ideas and plan Over all This show likable Thank You Julie McNally-Cahill & Timothy Cahill
One of the most annoying cartoon, My Gym Partner's a monkey.
Let's get this summed up.
Plot: Adam Lyon, a 10 year old boy, has transferred to an animal school because of a typo on his identity submission, instead of Adam Lyon, they typed "Lion" mistakenly. A little good for humor though, it's bad luck. But I have a cooler idea than this one.
Characters: Each has their own levels of annoyance, for me Slips the snake is the least annoying. They are always seen screaming, fit for an animal, but not on this show. They also have insecurities and ADD.
Humor: Fart, barf, butt, disgusting jokes. Some are good, but 90% of them are horrible at it's finest.
Art: Some of them don't even got the same looks of an animal, Windsor is more of a bear, and Jake looks like a pig instead. They are simplistic but poor.
Overall: 2. It had some good points around, but still poor.
No really what the crap wer ethey smoking when they thought this up.CN must think that cancelling all the good shows and exiling them to Boomerang will get them good ratings and let crap take over the network,but it doesn't.It's a bad influence on kids.Adam I feel may be an autistic kid and that the creators hate kids who are like that.Guess what I'm one of those kids.And moving on,it's too FICIONAL.When was the last time you saw hair on a (insert animal here),second why are you even having them go to school when you they'll just grow up to be zoo animals?Another thing why must we have butt humour in every episode?It's not funny all the time!I feel that it's telling kids that adults can't help them,then we hear Pixiefrog find out he's a human,why doesn;'t he send hi back to his old school?He's not an animal!Second why did the people even send him to the animal school?Because his last name is Lyon?Wow,that's a real good reason.Did they ever bother to look at him? Does he have a mane?Claws? Big teeth? No,I don; think so.The animation is terrible,I used to think this show rocked when I was 11,I only watch i when I'm really bored.At those times I'd be giving it a 7.Any other condition,no siree Bob!
My 2nd review after Donkey Kong Country.
Oh my god. This has got to be one of the WORST shows ever be created on Cartoon network. What the Heck is the Point of this Garbage?!?! I'm gonna tell what's so Terrbile about it. First off, This show makes people think that Austisic Kids (I'm Autsitic.) and Monkeys, are Stupid Freaks! Second, They gonna replace great shows like Camp Lazlo, Foster's home for Imagnairy Friends, Dexter's Lab, and Powerpuff girls, off the air for this stupid monkey garbage. Third, What kind of Stupid Idiot would wanana watch a Trashy, Cheap farting joke-telling, Butt-Drumming, Garbage-eating, Brainless Show like this?
It's about a dumb 12-year old boy named Adam, who got transfered to a Animal school because: "Lyon" Was his last name. He goes on pointless Misadventures with a Horrbile Monkey, Jake. He's an Idiot! I rather get tied up by a back of a bus and get Droven away!
I'm sorry but this show desverses an F. Here's the Dang results!!!:
Voice Acting: D 4.0/10.0 Poor voice-acting, The people who voiced the chracthers, should get fired for replacing our good shows. Animation: F- 2.5/10.0 The Chracthers look stupid, Goofy and Pukish. I just want to thorw up all over the chracthers.
Dialouge F-- 1.5/10.0 Who the heck came up with these corny scripts?!?! When I see jake talking about dumb garbage, I just want to Stab his chest with a Sword!
Grapihcs: F 2.0/10.0 What the heck is this? It looks like a Lame 1980's cartoon from the Hanana Barbera company Title.
Sound: E 3.0/10.0 One of the worst soundtracks ever made in a cartoon like this. Put the show on mute. It would be perfect if Robot Chicken made a spoof of this crummy garbage. Then we will be laughing and happy when we see that My gym partner's a monkey litterlay sucks Ugly Monkey butt.
Lasting Appeal: F 2.8/10.0 This show is so Unoriginal and Not worth your time. This show should die in Heck.
Overall: F 2.3/10.0 This is a real stupid show on Cartoon network. This series should end very shortly cause it sucks Ugly monkey butt Litteraly. I don't know why I'm giving this a 2.3 out of 10. I wish I can give this lower. But this is all I'm gonna say about this Terrbile show. Good day to you!!!
I hate the animals in the show. They always accuse poor Adam of being a jerk when they're the real jerks. They wouldn't let Adam have any food and just hogged it all for themselves. All of the animals (except Windsor) were stupid enough to believe Teddy and Stupid Hand were real people. They were all stupid enough to believe that a human ate Windsor when it was so obviously Windsor in a human costume. They have no respect for art, paint is for creating, not eating. They mess up Adam's stuff and blame Adam for it. They make Adam eat the gross things they like. This would have been a better show if it had intelligent animals like Garfield. This show is also really ugly. The drawings are really ugly. There are too many grossly exaggerated expressions. It's really gory. Characters' arms get severed off. Characters get bitten in half. Characters get their skin torn off. It's so disturbing, it's not funny. I recommend that you stay away from this show and watch a healthier cartoon like Looney Tunes.
At first I didnt think much of this show because of its name and the few episodes I watched. After a while the show became somewhat interesting. Its not the best show out there but its not the worse either. Its the kinda show that you watch on a rainy day and enjoy it a little bit more each time you watch it the kinda show that you suddenly miss once its canceled and stops reruning.
This show isnt the kind show you can enjoy right away though. Its one of those shows that you have to watch a while for it to become reasonably interesting or enjoyable/funny. It has its momnets of funny and its moments of just plain "what the heck?". It seems like it gets better every new episode I watch and ill be watching it from time to time to see where they go with it.
i only like other characters like Spongebob and the simpsons tv show. but the simpsons was only for adults. i got very aggressive to Ingrid Giraffe. i really seen aliens being dead for threatening the earth. i do like Nina the giraffe in Camp Lazlo my friend told me i like her. i know that not everyone likes Nina because thats there opinion. well, i going to kill Ingrid from My Gym Partner's a Monkey cause i'm mean like Chucky from Child's Play to her.
Ugh i thought this show would be great but no it is'nt it sucks out loud i'm gonna take this show out of my favourites no wonder everybody hates it It's about some kid named Adam Lyon who even though has'nt got the same voice actor has the same annoying voice as Chris in Sonic X(does'nt mean i hate both of them just resent their voices) and his pal Jake who has the voice of Heffer Wolfe and the new SpongeBob SquarePants OK and the butt jokes suck bring back the good old cartoons like Dexter's Lab or Johnny Bravo(ahhh,those were the days) it also has the same music as SpongeBob as well.
I Have to Agree this Show did have some original Characters and Plots and had Some Funny Stuff... Though It's very Childish kind of Humor. I Have to admit it's not the Best Cartoon that Cartoon Network has had to Offer... It doesn't Compete with Ed, Edd, N Eddy, KND, Billy and Mandy and Camp Lazlo; And I Personally say that this show is Not Great or Bad, but just a Decent Show. Now for the Ratings:
Character Development: 3/10
I Say watch this Show and give it a try and if you don't like Childish Humor then this is not really for you!!
MGPAM is just one of those shows that looked stupid and is stupid to say the least. The show is about a kid named Adam Lyon who is transferred to an animal school because his last name is Lyon and the last name sounds like an animal name Lion. He goes to an animal school and befriends a monkey named Jake and other animal friends. Adam is constantly trying to survive the school and avoid being the prey for many animals. While the premise sounds stupid, most shows with dumb premises make them entertaining, but not this show. All the animals in this show are some of the dumbest I have ever seen. Nobody has common sense or thinks in that matter, and while Adam is the only voice of reason in this show he was annoying to say the least and whiny. Jake was the worst though, always making butt jokes and slapping it. I don't mind crude humor, but Jake goes overboard with it. As for the rest of the humor, it was OK, but it was mostly bad jokes or puns that didn't work. The artwork is actually another highlight. The sets designs are rather creative as well as how the animals look and capture the personality of everyday school people like the shark being a bully, so points to the show for that. The animation though is choppy and stiff a lot of the time. The stories are OK, but nothing new is added to them and are rehashes of stories done before. Also, why did Adam get sent to a animal school all because his last name is Lyon? Did no one realize that he was human at all? Apparently the humans are just as stupid as the animals to. I did actually find Winston the gorilla to be the only real good character in this show since he was laid back and mellow a lot of the time. Overall, this show is bad, but it's not the worse show ever made and it does have some entertaining value to it, but MGPAM offers nothing new and is a show that should be passed up should you see it on TV.
The voice acting is extremely annoying, the animation is ugly, and the jokes and plot are beyond terrible. I do not know who the target audience of this show would have been, besides those kids who think butts are the most hilarious things in the whole world for some stupid reason. Every time this show comes on, I HAVE to change the channel. The fact this show ever got on television in the first place is completely shocking. I'm more surprised it lasted as long as it did. This was one of the worst, if not THE, worst show that has ever been on Cartoon Network.
this show my gym partners of monkey is about a boy named adem lion who is sent to an all animal school cuz his last name is lion. so now hes the only human in his school. okay the show itself is kinda entertaning but extremly boring. the premise isnt bad but the show itself stupid. the animals in the show are so annoying and are completly brain dead. the show does nothing more than rely on complete stupidity the animation itself kinda strickes me as a little cheesy. the humor is stale chessy stupid and way random so random its just random to the point were its stupid. and i find it so dumb this kid has to go to an animal school cuz his last name is lion. this is trippy 2x4 sighning off!!!!!!!
I never got any appeal out of this show, nor do I know why it was made. When shows are on the air, they remain on because they are trying to be entertaining, and most of the time, they are. But this was not. I am not sure how many episodes I saw, but i do know most of them were pointless, and they all seemed the same, no variety. This is one of the most pointless shows I have ever seen, no offense to anyone who likes it, i just really do not. My overall grade is an F
At 1st glance, the show is stupid and pointless, but after seeing a bit of it it could grow on you. When you think about it, ALL cartoons can be stupid and pointless! It's their JOB to be stupid and pointless! It's what makes them cartoons! For example, Spongebob Squarepants is about a yellow talking sponge and his life underwater in a town called Bikini Bottom. Sounds pretty stupid too, but it became a huge hit and is now a well-known nickelodeon icon. I'll admit it, when I first saw this show, I didn't like it and didn't think it'll last very long; but like all other shows, I gave it a chance and watched an episode. Turns out, by the end of the episode it had impressed me enough to watch another episode, then another. Long story short, I liked it. Granted, sometimes the humor can be a little dry and the drawing style can be less than savory, but overall it's decent and watchable. The humanization of different animals and the things they do is creative and pretty funny. There are some flaws, but they are exceeded by the positives [not significantly of course, but still by decent amount]. The show is way better than any of the other awful shows they give on cartoonetwork now. I give "My Gym Partner's a Monkey" a decent score of 7.5/10.
This show is just horrible! I do not know why Cartoon Network made this show in the first place, if only they knew what is happening to their network right now. What I hate about this show is the dialog, humor, and characters. The dialog in this show is just awful. Most of the lines the characters say are really stupid. The characters just blab too much about themselves, and their natural superiority in their territory. Of course this is an act of nature. The humor in this show is EXTREMELY annoying. All of the jokes are not funny, and make you want to grab them, and rip out their larynx. I hated it when Jake was doing this joke when he talks with his tail. It made me want to grab my sword, and slice off his rear end, so I never have to look at his back again. I just do not like it when they had to add butt cheeks to Jake. Personally, I think they should have not done that, because this may make kids want to impersonate Jake by not wearing any underwear, and pants. That is just sick!!! The characters are horrible. It is just wrong to have a human go to a school that is all animals. If I was president of Cartoon Network, I would burn this show, along with Squirrel Boy, Chop Socky Chooks, George of the Jungle, and Out of Jimmy's Head. I would bring back classics like Time Squad, Sailor Moon, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Ruruoni Kenshin. Instead of swinging on a vine to a room, This show should swing into a shreader. Be gone with this show, and never ever come back!
My 3rd reveiw after kappa mikey. When I saw comercials about this show I thought it would be about a boy whos gym partners a monkey. Instead its about a kid who got sent to a animal school because his last name is lion! The name doesnt fit. Jake the monkey is so anoying and loves his butt which is gross. The show is just gross for many reasons. The jokes are lame and way overused. Not much else to say exept that you shouldnt waste your time on this show. watch something better like kappa mikey or spongebob squarepants.
This show is a complete waste of time. I can't believe it got so many episodes, all of them are unorigional. I usually enjoy shows where nearly all of the characters are animals, but I was appauled by this one.
Animation: The producers got lazy and spent about 30 seconds drawing each clip. This equals poor animation.
Plot: I have never seen a creative plot in this. ONCE!!!
Voice Acting: Average.
Humor: The jokes in this wouldn't even make a two-year-old laugh, and they lack any origionality. How many times do we have to see Jake's butt?
Characters: They lack character development and everything else a character needs.
Okay my last review for this show got moderated for trolling for some reason, so I'll be good in this review. My Gym Partner's a Monkey stars a kid named Adam Lyon, a kid who ends up in a school for animals because of his last name. I feel bad for the main character, I mean, its just that it looks as if he should be able to go to a human school at certain times in this show. This show could've been a whole lot better without the stale potty humor you find in a lot of tv shows these days, bad plots and structure, and most of all, the overuse of Jake and his butt. I definitely would not ever want to see some monkey play with his butt all day, no thanks, I would rather watch paint dry. Not saying the characters are bad but there could have been a lot of ways to how the roles and other storylines to this show could have been better. In total, this show just fails at the rate it was going, the addition of ignorance and little smartness just made the show even worse too. I recommend not watching this show because its bad, I say only watch it if you want to see what it is like if you haven't seen it before really badly, if you do watch it just hang on to your IQ points tightly, that's all I got left to say, so thanks bye.
This show is actually kinda good. I mean sometimes this show is quite funny, and other times the show just falls flat on its face. This show is about a 12 year old boy named, Adam Lyon who gets transferred to a school for animals because of his last name. Yeah I know what you're thinking, it's a pretty ridicolous plot. The monkey of this show pretty much steals the entire episode. To be honest, there really isn't much to say about this show. I find rather bland most of the time. The character's dialogue throughout the show is rather decent most of the time. The animation of the show is nothing to write home about, but does the task fairly well. The plots of the episodes are your generic "Your not my friend anymore!", run of the mill. I have to say this though, the creators did a phenomenal job on the different personalities of all the animals. For example, you have the extremely intelligent gorilla with the most witty comments, the zany monkey with an ecstatic personality, the fashionable(ghetto?) tucan who always has something to say, and many more. Of course this show will never measure up to say something like Spongebob(which isn't that great anymore but still enjoybale). I mean it's still something to consider watching when nothing else is on. In my opinion, I wouldn't mind if they actually brought this show back on air. Sometimes it's the funnier than Carrot Top, other times it's similar to watching grass grow on the lawn. Until then, I'll watch the re-runs.
