For years, I hated The Amazing World of Gumball because I thought it was ugly and weird like hell. But then, I realized, that it is indeed, an amazing show! I love it! Awesome show! No wonder why it is the 4th most popular show on CN. It is a great show!
A friendly but narcissistic cat, his snarky best fishy bud and a psychopathic bunny wreak havoc upon the fair city of Elmore trying to fix Gumball's many day to day problems. If you watched Gumball in Season 1 it is no longer that kind of innocent kids show nor is it kiddy or stupid like the other reviews have said. Hell I question why is this even a kids show? Because it's cute? Maybe. As of late Season 2 to Season 4 Gumball is now a cynical and questionably dark satirical sitcom with some of the most bitter/affectionate writing I've seen in a kids comedy since Animaniacs but isn't afraid to have fun. It's the kinda show that can outright reference The Last of Us using animation avoiding the dreaded name drop reference while pointing a middle finger towards societies flaws. If you like your humor pitch black this is the show for you. (Morbid death and immoral illegal selfish actions ahoy!) If you want a show with likable assholes this is the show for you. Want animation nirvana? This is the show for people who think animation died after the CGI Boom. So far the people who gave it bad or mediocre score have never seen It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia which is still the best comedy on television. That's a high prestige for any kids cartoon let alone kids comedy cartoons which tend to not work. The fact I can use it for this show is an accomplishment alone. Don't let the cute look of Gumball fool you. The cat may look like an adorable kitten but he bites hard. You might bleed a little but I guarantee you'll keep coming back for more daily insanity.
I don't love this show, nor do I think it's crap. But, and this is a big BUT... this show clearly is a mixed bag.
Sometimes I've seen episodes that have made me pound the floor laughing or at the very least a slight chuckle. Other ones however, they're either completely stupid, boring or just flat out awful. It's really sad because the show does have promise to it, but it just can't keep that consistency up.
Yes, I know not all episodes to any series are good, but the ratio to good to bad for Gumball is really about 50/50 or 60/40 at best. Not exactly something to brag about.
Its a funny show however dont like that sometimes they take it too far for kids. Another thing is the characters are a little too random and bad looking. The main family is good though. After Clarence fell off its the only good show on Cartoon Network.
Found out The reason its so random is cause the creator put all of the characters together from different ideas he had for commercials he made. Wish they would of drawn the side characters a little less creepy and weird.
I love it! It's smart and interesting and talks about everyday issues, except exaggerated like crazy. Even some grown ups like it. It is quite possibly the best cartoon network show I've ever seen. I cannot count the amount of times that I've laughed out loud watching Gumball, and I can't imagine how anyone would NOT like it. As someone far down on the page said, just watch it. Believe me, you'll love it.
The observations of an everyday family in an ordinary world, mostly seen through the eyes of the Watterson kids; Gumball (a blue cat), Anais (a pink rabbit), and Darwin (a goldfish). There is plenty of action and buckets full of humour. Visually its stunning with a mix of animation and live-action backgrounds. This show is genius!
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.
I remember seeing the commercials for this and thought it was gonna suck. Even the first couple episodes had prove that theory. Overtime however, it has grown on me. Yeah, I'm surprised myself. This show actually gotten some laughs out of me and still has some very good episodes. One of my favorites for example is "The Remote". Not wanting to spoil it, I'll just say this. TAKE NOTES M NIGHT SHYAMALAN! That is how you make a good plot twist. So yeah, this show is pretty good. Better than I thought it would be at least.
I like this show. In my opinion, it's the best show airing on CN right now (It's way better than that Teen Titans Go! and Uncle Grandpa crap). The number one reason I love it is because of it's unique art and storyline, it keeps you interested in the show. My favorite character is Anais because I can compare her to me, I'm really smart too! Anyway, for those who think this show isn't that good, your free to your opinion, but I at least think it is very interesting and fun to watch.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?).
Season 1: The stories were hilarious and clever, though the animation was kind of lame and the personalities were too goofy and happy all the time
Season 2:The animation improved and so did the personalities, they were a bit more serious and less goofy and stupid. But a few stories got a bit dull and boring but it was still an improvement. Oh yeah, and Hugo Harrison's voice casting was better than Rupert Degas
Season 3: Nothing changed except the voice casting for Gumball and Darwin
I love the show, but it could be better, maybe if Season 2/3's animation and personalities combined with Season 1's stories, this show would be awesome
This was actually the first show on CN that I watched,so I'm a pretty late fan. The episodes features countless types of animation,with simple 2D designs for gumball and Darwin, more 3d style designs for Tina Rex and some background characters. Really good animation,and a decent story.
Good god, this show is awesome. It constantly keeps me laughing, with the hilarious character interactions and setups to the witty dialogue and awesome slapstick done very well. I've seen plenty of old episode from the current season, and they ALL make me laugh so much. My one other HUGE point is that it ACTUALLY has a good idiotic father figure. Richard is a dumb, fat bunny dad who can't do much right, but it's made INCREDIBLY clear he only wants the best for his kids, and he even got an entire episode dedicated to showing that. This show is a bunch of fun, wit, hilariousness, and awesomeness for anyone to watch.
I have never watched a more funnier cartoon than Gumball, this is one of the greats in television animation. I have three words: JUST WATCH IT. That is all you need to do, words can't sum up how awesome this show is.
The first time I watched an episode of this show, I was like, "the fuck did I just watch?" Its a stupid show and has the most random character you could think of. This show is crappy and unfunny. The only people who watch it are young kids and fat smelly old people. Seriously people. Get a life instead of watching a bunny and fish do dumb shit
