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.

    Thanks to this I started making fanfictions.

    Though this show could be improoved, it's really doing a great job.
  • Creative, Fun. A new interesting approach. Definitely worth watching!

    This show deserves the attention of every single one of you! The presentation may draw you away from it at first as it is quite unusual, with mixed media such as traditional animation combined with 3D animation, in all sorts of styles. But don't let the appereances fool you!

    It's one of the best shows I have ever watched and let me tell you why I think so:



    It portrays very accurately not only our current society, but also human personalities we meet every single day. And all of these in a very creative and fun way. For example, there's Gumball-the "hero" kid, Darwin-the sweet innocent sidekick, Anaise-the prodigy, Richard-the dum dad, Nicole-the mom with anger management problems, Ms Simian-the evil teacher etc. Everyone can relate to the show because it's characters are so well portrayed that it's impossible not to say "HAha, I do that too!".



    Second of all, the show deals with problems that we, as a generation, encounter: internet, school struggles, parents, bullying etc. And does that in a very creative and fun-to-watch way. As foolish as it may seem, remember it's a kids show. It's as deep or as foolish as the level of understanding you have. And it's funny because they attack all these problems everyone seems to ignore with a very subtle sarcasm, which opens your eyes, really.



    So give it a go, and you'll find yourself laughing with tears! It's a great show for kids as it prepares them for the real world, but it's also good for older people because it raises some questions yet unanswered, sometimes even leaving you to wonder and think about what the episode really meant to say.moreless
  • Creative, New, and if you have not seen more than 5 eps you cannot judge it

    7.5
    I get we can be quick, real quick to judge today's shows, what with many of us being from the 90s part of cartoons, but things change, they have to. Sometimes for the better or worse. And The amazing world of Gumball is one of those things I consider it to be for the better.



    Now LISSSSTEEN

    You can't start judging this show until you have seen at least 5 eps. I personally thought it was going to be bad at first. The first and second ep did not blow my mind, and I didn't get it. but around the 4th and 5th ep, it all starts making sense. This show is an acquired taste. That is why you have to be patient when entering this show. I have now watched all the eps and I will say there are good episodes, bad episodes, and great episodes. In the end I see that it was very worth it.moreless
  • Creative

    8.0
    it's creative,funny,wierd,and one of the best shows on cartoon network currently

    it kinda juvenile at times but it's still great
  • 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.
