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)
Words cannot describe how much I hate this fucking show. They obviously made this show without reason because the creators are highly bored or are high. Truly disappointing and cliche. There's this movie that has animation in real world, yeah ROGER RABBIT. Watch that, not this piece of unfunny Britain garbage. Every episode will have the most childish humor you will see in any bad CN show, and a BUNCH OF SCREAMING!!!!!!!! and lack of logic. I mean, look at this. Darwin is a fish but he hates water. Don't put yourself through this. I used to like this show, but now I've finally got a higher IQ and funnier sense of humor, I hate this show.
I like the art style but the show in general isn't that entertaining. I like how the characters all have different styles and looks very unique but they managed to mess it up by slapping all these shitty gags and jokes all over the god damn place. It just annoys me really bad knowing this could have been a really good cartoon >.
It's okay but nothing makes any sense! I know it is a cartoon but they're relying too much on weirdness. Most characters are just odd and not needed for the plot. Almost everything in this show is a character, It doesn't make any sense. It is a enjoyable cartoon, but just a liiiiiiiiitle bit rettarded. The animation is really good and colorful, trust me. I just don't like the weirdness and childish-ness of the show. Especially when Gumball and Darwin whine and cry like babies and scream for no apparent reason. And why is every episode title begin with "The", I just don't get it. It is just one if the mediocore shows on Cartoon Network now, I reccomend something like Regular Show because it's way better than this.
It's a seemingly enticing blend of immature/mature comedic writing with morals not in the least bit subtle, yet set up surprisingly well. If you have never stepped foot in middle school as a preteen/teen, it might be hard to relate to this, considering the typical focus of this show's SATIRE occasionally coinciding with the quintessential family sitcom.
Target audience? ~ Middle schoolers and above
+It's unapologetically over the top and seriously pushes the boundary on creativity, especially with its humor and character designs/portrayals. It's also remarkable to see a cartoon whose characters acknowledge its obviously wacky reality without resorting to 4th wall gags.
+Even if you can't come to laugh at a single joke, the show's writing is its strongest asset.
(that sharp wit, that unique/fleshed out spin on inherent stereotypes)
being one of the better character-driven series on Cartoon Network.
It's one of those shows that DOES NOT HAVE TO BE NOR MEANT FOR EVERYONE.
Those who do enjoy The Amazing World of Gumball, know that there's an astonishing amount to appreciate.
This show is decent but...... IT'S MAKES NO FRICKIN SENSE! WHY IS EVERYTHING ALIVE? WAS THERE A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION IN ELMORE? WHY IS THERE A DINOSAUR IN THE SCHOOL ? THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE EXTINCT! HOW COULD DARWIN GROW LEGS ? DID GUMBALL FEED HIM RADIOACTIVE WASTE OR SOMETHING? WHY HASN'T GUMBALL EATEN DARWIN YET? HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE A CAT AND CATS EAT FISH! WHY IS GUMBALL'S SISTER AND DAD RABBITS? AND SHOULDN'T GUMBALL AND HIS MOM EATEN THEM BY NOW? CATS EAT RABBITS! WHY DOES SOME OF THE BACKGROUNDS LOOK LIKE THEY WERE PHOTOGRAPHED? WERE THE ANIMATORS TOO LAZY TO ANIMATE THE BACKGROUNDS? AND WHY HASN'T THE DINOSAUR EATEN EVERYONE IN SCHOOL YET? IT'S A T REX AND IT'S SUPPOSED TO EAT OTHER LIVING THINGS! WHY DOES GUMBALL AND HIS FAMILY LOOK LIKE ANIME CHARACTERS? AND FINALLY, WHY IS THAT LIP, GIRL THING SO DAMN CREEPY? WHY, WHY, WHYYYYYYYYY? Also the show is not that original. It's kind of like a rip off of chowder, spongebob, roger rabbit and adventure time. And gumball's dad looks really similar to peter griffin. Also, I hate it when gumball and darwin both scream like idiots for no reason. And the show can get kinda childish at times. And some of the supporting characters can get really annoying, especially that stripping banana thing. But despite what I said, this show is actually good. The jokes are funny most of the time, the animation is really good and gumball and darwin are very likeable characters (except when they are screaming like falcons for no reason) . The sad thing is, if this show was more original, actually made more sense and was not childish at times, it would've been one of my favorites. If you want to watch a better surreal CN show, watch adventure time, regular show or foster's home for imaginary friends.
My sister likes this show. Here is what I have to say. IT"S GAY. BAD ANIMATION. HORRIBLE STUPID WEAK PLOTS. TERRIBLE JOKES. I don't know how you all like this shit, sure disagree, with me if you dare. But this is MY opinion. I just think you all need to watch REAL shows. Not this terrible peace of shit. If you do not understand what I mean, I hate to say, but clearly you don't have any sense in real TV. Shit past 2007 has been BAAAAD.
I don't care what you think, you know it sucks. Animated characters in a real world? A fish, cat, banana, and a ton of other idiotic characters. I've watched it before to prove I know it sucks. Seriously. Everyone with a positive comment, get your head on straight. This is the WORST. I'd rather get a concussion than watch one episode of this crap. I'm literally not kidding. Oh, and the episode where they see a paper bear about some sort of stupid germ issue, she diagnoses something, and they give her "A treatment of After that joke, I literally knew this is 20x worse than the Incredible Crew, Level Up, and every bad fart joke I've heard combined. And for the record, I've been forced to watch a lot of episodes by "friends" so if you think they have good jokes, I can counter each and every one. Also, for the record, I want to smash Gumball and Darwin with a sledgehammer. Their stupidity that ends up in luck just makes them all the more annoying. Cartoon Network should just made an episode where they just die from their own stupidity and arrogance. For the record, all the positive commenters on this show need to understand that is not a child's channel. At least if this show continues, move it to Nickolodeon. This show is the pinnacle of stupidity. It's impossible to get any worse, unless it gets worse the Gumball way, which it has. Each episode, the have worse ideas. One by one, it gets worse. This show practically makes me want to stop watching cartoon network. They pretty much destroyed Cartoon Network with idiotic shows, and this one makes all of them looks like perfect comedies. Everyone with a positive comment, seriously, like I said, this a channel for kids that are 11-15, not kindergarteners and first graders. I mean, seriously, they already share time with Adult Swim. I hate this damned show so much I want to yell at the producers of this wreck they call a cartoon.
Also, Mostafizurrah, the show made my best friends act like morons. That's one reason this show is crap. The main character is just a replica of Spongebob on the WRONG channel.
AWG is another in a long line of cartoons that have a bunch of crazy non-sensical characters. Such as: the complete trash "annoying orange", the unbeatable "Adventure Time"; to name a couple in production. AWG never fails to get me to chuckle and sometimes belly laugh. Its mature enough to pick out some cheap laughs (in episode "The Castle" Gumball is on Anais' shoulders under a trench coat delivering pizzas. When change is due an oddly placed arm extends from the trench coat offering the change. The guy hesitates, staring at the appendage and obviously disturbed, confused and amazed; says something like, "ughhh, NO thanks". Anyhow the cartoon is great and i hope the kids voices dont change and ruin the show. This sucker wont be cancelled for several years.
I finally admit, I kind of like this show. Sure I still think there are some bad episodes in it, but most of them are okay. so that is why it gets a good 7. Let's run down the seasons, and then the years, and finally, the overall review.
Season 1: Alright, but did have a few pretty horrible episodes like The Debt and The Ghost, but still, it was pretty good. The episodes (besides the bad ones) range from good to decent.
Season 2: Also good. A little unoriginal, but still good. It's also a bit better than Season 1, but the animation is not. It isn't that bad, it actually kind of improved on mid-2013, but Season 2 did also have a few bad episodes, like The Knights, The Job, Halloween, Christmas, The Bumpkin, The Authority, and The Storm, but it is mostly good. Keep it up, Gumball! Episodes (besides the bad ones) range from great to decent.
Here are the year grades:
And now for the overall review.
I do consider Gumball, even though it does have a few pretty awful episodes, it's still pretty good for the most part. Gumball has become slightly meaner, and Darwin became a bit, well, stupider, but Gumball is still great. Hooray for Gumball! So far this gets a 7/10 for me. Keep up the good work, Gumball!
Basically a third wheel to Adventure Time, and Regular Show, two other shows which I deem "okay". Not really a fan of the main character's squeaky voices, and over-reactions to everything. Gumball's other friends at school are usually just there and most of the time don't have anything truly important to contribute to the story. Also, when this show initially came out, I thought that Darwin was female. Maybe it was the eyelashes or something... Anyway, the promos (especially the ones they often show on Boomerang) are strange and sometimes make me want to avoid the show altogether. I think the dad is pretty incompetent as well, but thats really all i can say about it. The plots are pretty good and original, and I've actually laughed on a few occasions. For all I know, most of the episodes I haven't seen might be pure genius, but I won't waste any time on finding out. Good show, but lets let the kids keep this one for once.
The characters are good, things were drawn pretty well, and the episodes are impressively enjoyable. At first I thought that it wasn't going to work but when I got to know more about the show and what it can deliver it actually has the capacity to satisfy me.
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
At first glance, Gumball looks like a boring show. But think again, because this is one of the funniest cartoons of all time. What really makes it stand out is the animation style. Sure, the show uses live action backgrounds taken from shots of California(despite the fact that the show is from England), but it uses different animation styles, like 2-D and CGI animation. The show has everything a cartoon lover could want:Lovable characters(Carrie is a huge fan favorite among Gumball fans), good stories, funny moments, and unique personalities for the characters, not bland stereotypes. I urge everyone to watch this show, it saves Cartoon Network from the god-awful Johnny Test. :)
Season 1 is not so great. It's overly stupid characters getting into painful and embarrassing situations. Honestly I couldn't stand it, especially with how little it took advantage of it's best aspect, that crazy mesh of art styles.
Season 2 however, I've never seen a show take such a 180 before. It's fantastic! I mean still flawed in that there's more bad episodes than there should be, but when season 2 gets an episode right, it's pretty dang fantastic and has me laughing the whole way through. All the characters were given the gift of common sense making them less painful to watch, the plots and characters often now use the crazy art style rather than just passively having it, and I don't know what they did to the writing staff, but they are making a lot better jokes now.
If you disliked season 1 like I did, a friend gave me the advice to give it a second chance with the new season and I don't regret it.
This is a great cartoon. I love how creative it is and how they blend different objects together. Although some episodes could be better. For example, some episodes are just random and completely out of place. Still, it is an enjoyable show to watch.
This is good for a European cartoon and to the person who said Atomic Betty and Robotboy were not that great of cartoons; two things; First Atomic Betty isn't European it's Canadian and it's not a bad cartoon as those morons giving the show a 1.0/1.5 reviews are saying. Second Robotboy isn't that bad either aside from some unfunny humor and mean spirited characters but I will say it is better than Atomic Betty in many ways. Anyways not a bad cartoon but Adventure Time and Regular Show are better.
I stumble onto this show one day and haven't been able to stop watching since. I love the graphics and how they mix cartoon with live action backgrounds and all the different types of characters . dinosaur, a banana, a cloud, toast). My favorite episode was when Richard Watterson (Gumball's dad) got a job at the pizza place and Nicole Watterson (Gumball's mom) has to get him fired or the universe would be destroyed! Just craziness but I love it.
I find this show very amusing, and it is very funny. I was excited to watch this show for the first time and even the first episode is good. The funniest thing that i ever saw on this show was the music video clip which is again very funny. My favorite characters are Gumball and Darwin because they are the dumb ones which make them very funny. Another thing i like about this show is how they mix all the different graphics together, this is a something that makes the show very cool.
