The Amazing World of Gumball

Show Summary

Welcome to Elmore! This quaint little suburb isn't quite what it seems, as in Elmore, just about everything has the ability to come to life! The Amazing World Of Gumball follows the misadventures of Gumball, a twelve year old cat. With the help of his best friend Darwin, his former pet goldfish that grew legs and joined the family, he gets into all sorts of antics. He is joined by his sister, Anais, a four year old bunny with heightened intelligence. His father, Richard, and his mother, Nicole, are there to provide him support as well.

  • A poor excuse for a show

    1.5
    Cartoon network has really gone downhill since 2004,but I never thought they would reach such a level of stupidity. Shows like Adventure time,Clarence,Eliot Kit,Uncle Grandpa and many other really drop the quality of this station.



    Now about Gumball : there's not much to say about it. It's a child show done in a very bad matter. Animation sucks : they made the characters look like candy,some of them are flying objects,and they've mixed animation with real background pictures that are cheap. How on earth can this be enjoyable?. Realistic background can be good if it's done right (one example you have is in "Courage the cowardly dog" where the images are a work of art and they are displayed intelligently) but here it's anything but good.



    Characters are annoying and just plain stupid. All they do is argue about silly things and make ridiculous decisions. Plots are boring : it's a simple idea repeated many times in a shitty matter. Sometimes it gets so awful my brain cells start to melt and I feel like screaming (no joke).



    The only good thing I see from this pile of garbage is the character Anais. She is pretty smart,makes clever decisions and when she interacts with her brothers she makes them look like idiots.



    In conclusion : if you are over 6 years old and value your mind,stay away from this shit.

  • Funny!

    10
    Okay so last year my rating for this show as a 3.5, but as I keep watching the episodes I decided to give it a 10
  • Very Creative

    8.0
    First off, lemme just say the character designs of this show really is "amazing". There's 2D characters mixed with 3D characters and it looks very nice. The characters are interesting looking. Heck, one of the characters is a banana. The characters' personalities are also good

    For example the mom in the show is sorta bipolar and goes crazy sometime. Even though the characters are creative, the setting isn't. It's your typical family-school show and the humor is mainly "lol he got hurt" and mean-spirited humor for the first season. However, the second and third season feature more dualogue based humor, adult inuendos, and 4th wall breaking, which I enjoyed. Even though the humor is mean-spirited sometimes the characters usualyy resolve the problem at the end and have heart-warming endings and relatable lessons. The show has improved a lot since the first sesson and in the third sesason there is some actual story going on. 8/10.moreless
  • It's original

    9.0
    The series features the most types of animation I've never seen. It's originality is overwhelming. It should get an Oscar for originality only. It needs a little more teneur, but overall the series is OK. Not 10/10 OK. But acceptable. The new episodes just get into your skin. Currently, top 5 CN series (not that that is a great accomplishment nowadays)

    2014 update: This series has become the funniest animated series in TV right now. Competes with Adventure Time as the best Cartoon Network series right now.moreless
  • Isn't it fortunate that the word "amazing" is in the title?

    9.5
    This show is very funny, has some likeable characters and well written plots. It also has this clever gag to make fun of common cliches. The true highlight of the show is it's animation: 2D, 3D, and stop motion all in one setting ( why can't animated films be more like that?).
