  • i like wayne .

    it's not that bad a show, it just needs more character development . i ship Wendy and Wayne . I try to imagine them as teenagers .

    it's pretty entertaining though , i hate how Lucien always gets blamed for everything but Wayne is amazing !

    "Moon babies live in moon trees , and eat sky cheese for breakfast . And i was a moon baby once , because i like sky cheese ."

    -Wayne Cramp

    The animation was weird but i remember loving it as a kid and i love it now , the plots are kind of weird and random and i guess i like this show cause it's just different and that's what makes it cool :)moreless
  • Decent show, but killed Sunbow Productions.

    to begin with, Sunbow was a company who produced hasbro TV series with Toei Animation. They started making more shows and then it all ended with The Cramp Twins.

    The series is about Wayne and Lucien Cramp, who are twins the same gender who have nothing in common except they were born from the same mom.

    Lucien is a nice and calm boy who respects the world around him and loves nature, he has a friend called Tony, who is like a dwarf and also likes nature. He tells Lucien about the animals and his area and home which is a swamp near the boy's home.

    Wayne however is always causing trouble and messes everything up, he spends time mostly at a Junkyard with Joe, the owner. He always calls Lucien Girl pants.

    Mrs. Cramp is a mom who wants to keep everything clean and tidy and Mr. Cramp is nothing but a coward.

    The characters bring up some laughs.

    The animation is decent enough, but not like other Sunbow animations.

    Each episode has it's own plot.

    Overall, this show gets an 7. it was successful, but somehow caused TV-Loonland to fold Sunbow Entertainment into its own company. TV-Loonland is gone now.moreless
  • The Oposites Attract Each Other

    Now, this series is not one of those series which you would think it's great at first sight, mostly because of its animation and premise. Still, the Cramp Twins is a series which itself is quite good. The series tells us the adventures and misadventures of two twins, Wayne and Lucien Cramp, who have nothing in common, not even their appearence.

    While Lucien is a kind-hearted spirit who loves peace and respects nature, along with his good friend Tony, who tells him all sorts of things regarding nature and the animals who live in the swamp behind the twins' house, Wayne is a bully who loves to destroy and smash things and is always looking for an excuse to prank people up (he spends most of his time in the junkyard, talking to the owner, Joe, as he tries to find parts for his crazy mechanical contraptions), not to mention doing his favourite, which is to call Lucien "Girl-Pants".

    Then, we have the boys' mother, who is a clean freak and their dad, who is always nervous about something. Really cool characters, who bring up so many funny situations. Overall the series deserves an 8.moreless
  • A tolerable show

    This show is not my favorite but it's still tolerable. At least it's not Fanboy and Chum Chum.
  • The Cramp Twins has no value or redeeming qualities at all.

    I really don't know what the creators of this show had in mind for this show, but if this is what they wanted then I hope they aren't working on anymore shows. The Cramp Twins is about Wayne and Lucien Cramp two boys who are twins, and yet have nothing in common not even the same skin color. Wayne is a bully and loves gross stuff, but Lucien loves nature and peace. Together they have to put up with each other, and come to terms with their different lives. Now the premise sounds really boring, but it could have worked sadly it didn't. The characters on this show are all dreadful, and uninteresting. Pretty much every character is flat and one dimensional with no distinct personalities to them. The only one who didn't drive me cray was Lucien's friend, Tony. If most of the show had focused on him then this show would be a lot better. The plots are very stupid, and are absurd. One was about Wayne being obsessed with a food, and has to overcome it boring. The artwork has got to be some of the worst I have ever seen on a cartoon, and that's saying a lot. Everyone's skin is a different color for some reason. The dad's is green, the mom's is yellow, Wayne's is purple, but for some reason Lucien's is the only one with normal skin color. What happened? Does everyone live near a nuclear plant and some sort of meltdown mutated everyone's skin or something? Also the tins have no noses, but a pair of holes instead. Did the artists have trouble with noses? The animation is very stiff, and choppy. There's also these wobbly lines around the characters, why? The humor is nothing but potty humor. Is that the best they could come up with. Potty humor can only work for a limited time before it gets really bad. There is nothing redeeming about this show at all. The jokes are terrible, the characters are awful, the artwork is bad, the animation is even worst, and the stories are not interesting at all. I am glad this show is gone for good, and will never come back. Unless you want to lose some brain cells or go insane don't watch this at all, but if you do don't say I warned you.moreless
