    Sorry Flapjack fans, but to me, the show is a complete waste of time. I can only look at it for 30 seconds at a time, and sure, there's slight humor, but emphasis on "slight". It's about a young boy who wants to become an adventurer someday and is best friends with a former one. First of all, Flapjack and K'nuckles rarely go on real adventures, and secondly, Flapjack makes the weirdest facial expressions and K'nuckles is such a jerk; he would trade Flapjack for 100 pieces of candy if he had to. Not to mention they guzzle maple syrup (maple syrup isn't meant to be drunk!) and are candy addicts (don't they know too much candy is bad for your health?). Plus, a lot of the female characters are totally ugly. It's a bit strange that Peppermint Larry has rosy cheeks (like that insane exercise guy with the afro from the Billy and Mandy episode "Waking Nightmare" lol), but what can I say, he owns a candy shop. As far as I'm concerned, the only character I like is Bubbie. She's intelligent, caring, and actually has some common sense.
  • In a world of adventurers and sailors, Flapjack is the nuttiest! :lol:

    This cartoon makes a good point of not sticking to a single concrete story line. All that's really important to know is that Flapjack is Bubbie's adopted child, K'nuckles is Flapjack's father figure, they're on a search for Candied Island, and that's all that really matters! Everything else, is just purely for laughs! The situations Flapjack gets into are totally crazy, and that's the way that Flapjack likes it! Whether it's helping Bubbie race against a mechanical whale, getting his hair cut for the first time, making friends with a giant female monster, curing a bad case of foot-burn, attempting to sail to the dangerous west, finding out why Captain K'nuckles has wooden hands, trying to beat Punsy McHale in a Pun-off, or just trying to get syrup on a pile of flapjacks, there's nothing to crazy or too insane that Flapjack wouldn't try, because Flapjack is interested in fun adventures, and hanging around Captain K'nuckles, ensures Flapjack there will be plenty of adventures to go around! This show harkens back to the era of comedy nonsense made popular by Tex Avery and Chuck Jones, and I think that's a major reason of why this show works. I highly recommend it as a good way to experience many good laughs as this show is a good form of humor and provides laughter, which truly is the best medicine to cheer one's self up during times of sadness and loneliness. That's why I enjoy it so much! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)
  • Not a good show. Horrible to be exact.

    1.0
    Look, this show is just another show that makes CN not bring back Code Lyoko. I think that this show should end. It's stupid. Fine for a kid's show, but not for certain people. I know some people might like this show, and I would prefer you not bash me in any way. I am only trying to show people that this is stupid. Last time I watched that show, I think I lost 5 I.Q. points. Yes, I recovered, with a 128 I.Q., but I suggest not bashing me. This show has bad artwork. Learn something for once, CN!
  • Another show that prevents CN from making a recovery...........

    Flapjack is a show about a boy who seeks adventure. The plot is completely unoriginal Chowder wants to be a chef he wants to have adventure. And both him and Capitan Knuckles are obsessed about candy (reminds me of Ed,Edd,n Eddy). And Flapjack thinks a whale is his mom. Also the episode plots are always the same it starts out with him waking up inside a whale then he and Knuckles look for both candy and adventure then something happens (like the map is stolen to what they think is a map to candy island) then they have to go on this "adventure" then all is well.

    Animation- Fair but it could be much better.

    Characters- Not very likable.

    Humor- Not very good

    Overall, Flapjack is definitely not worth a view.
  • shows good.

    9.5
    the show is good on cartoon network from getting a bunch of viewers.including bubbie and the others.footburn and that's a wrap were good episodes.chowder and total drama island is next to flapjack.this show is better than johnny test.but the mute mike story is disgusting and kid nickels is the episode that i think that is not a good episode.the show is good at doing funny stuff including the voices repeating stuff and singing them.its good how they singed in footburn and that's a wrap.cartoon network did a good job at doing the funnies on this show on channel cartoon network
  • I love this show. It is incredibly clever, creative and funny.

    10
    I love this show. Reading other reviews, many find that it has crude humor, indecent art and uninteresting story lines. However, some must be reminded: This is a children's cartoon. Kids find farts, boogers and candy fascinatingly funny. There is no need for a complicated plot - the episodes are only 10 minutes long. As a young adult, I look past the farts, boogers and candy and find a lot of terribly clever humor and silly plot lines that are simply (and wonderfully) amusing... especially facial expressions. The characters are fabulous, the stories have morals, and I'm still giggling. A+!
  • Something really special.

    Flapjack is seriously good. Not annoying at all. Way too good for kids. Way too good for adults, actually. Most of the stuff they make for adults isn't this good. Demented, Ren and Stimpy style humor. Some of the sounds that come out of Flapjack are disturbing. (Flapjack was almost voiced by Paul Reubens aka Pee Wee Herman, which does give you a good idea of what Flapjack is like.)

    Brian Doyle Murray, the voice of Captain K'nuckles, Flapjack's ne'er-do-well best friend, is awesome like always. I love that Flapjack's mother figure is a whale with the voice of a sassy black woman.

    This show is beautiful. They're loose with how the characters look in a funky-yet-pleasant way. The lines are thick and the colors are creamy. The backgrounds are wonderfully textured with brushstrokes and whatnot. I love looking at it.
  • i liked the second episode but it could have ended on better terms

    10
    i hope sally syrup will return she would make the episodes much more interesting if flapjack had a crush or something that could blossom into a crush. i had thought of the flapjack love interest thing a few months ago and it takes about a few months to make an episode of a show i wouldn't be suprised if thurop saw the messege boards and took the idea for himself and made some modifications like for example she plays a conch at the end of the episode to lure the blood gnats away i thought of my character playing a candy cane flute to lure in flapjack.sorry but it was my idea or it's a coinidence i get those alot. oh well what's done is done but it was done too soon and the other episode was good too. edfan out!!!

  • Mavelous? I think not.

    4.0
    Marvelous? I think not. There's nothing exciting about this show to me.
    The plots are very, very simple. It's usually focus ed around one simple point, which doesn't make for a very exciting show. Nothing really stands out.
    The artwork is gross when it's detailed. To me, art is a VERY important part of a cartoon, and this show's art is usually extremely simple or dull, or detailed and gross. And the gross parts come often. That drives me away from this show. I think I would rather watch stick figures. At least those will keep my meals down.
    The characters aren't that great. Captain K'nuckles is a total jerk, and Flapjack is annoying. Bubby seems to be the only character with any sense, and she's a whale!
    I think this is suppose to be a comedy, but I don't see the humor. The jokes are really ones that young children would like.
    The pirate thing is okay, but it's been done before. Plus, I've seen better pirate stories.

    Overall, this show isn't anything really anything. It's best for people easily entertained, very young, or lovers of gross things.
  • great show!..

    "Advvveennture!" lol flapjack is so funny! i watch this show every time it comes on. at first when i heard about this show, i thought "OMG! another retarded show?!?!" but then i happened to watch a couple of eps & thought it was hilarious! i love the theme song. it's really cool=] i thank CN for makin this terrific show! i hope there's a season 2. every ep makes me laugh! Flapjack is awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome asome awsome awsome awsome awsome awsome!!!!!!
  • This is a pretty good show in my opinion.

    10
    I personally like this show,and of all the new shows currently airing and in production on Cartoon Network,this one is the only one that really makes me laugh. I think Flapjack's laugh is cute and Captain Knuckles is funny. Sometimes it's a little weird,but I like it no matter what. I think this is a lot better than TDI or George of the Jungle. The artwork is beautiful,and the animation is good. I don't have much more to say about this show other than I like it and that the jokes are good. The lines and voice acting are pretty good,and they don't use the same joke over and over like Johnny Test does. But that's just my opinion.

    Pirate cartoon show? Not really working for me. This show can really get on my nerves. Flapjack can get so annoying! And captain Knukles? Well... he's a jerk.

  • A whale, a boy wanting to become an adventurer, and a pirate made mostly of wood who drinks lots of Maple Syrup try to find Candy Island! That sounds crazy to me.

    10
    This is a show that you can let your kids watch on their own and know that they are not going to leave the room with a fowl mouth! That is a big winner in my eyes. There is a lot of adult humor hinted throughout the show as is with most kids shows, but this is done in a very tasteful way. Kind of like SpongeBob! The animation is different from any other cartoon show out there right now which is refreshing to see. This has become a new household favorite. I hope you enjoy this show as much as our family.
  • Flapjack, his adopted mother and whale Bubbie and his alcoholic, pirate friend Captain K'Nuckles go on misadventures that could be classified as marvelous.

    9.0
    Cartoon Network is continuing its legacy (preceded by the late "Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy") of children's cartoons with adult-oriented humor. It's a good thing, too, because I'd hate to think kids were getting complacent with subpar writing.

    It's just really gorgeous, too. I'm shocked that anyone would say this was ugly. The show has a very specific style of both textured backgrounds and the more cartoony characters and sometimes even working in claymation (Candy Wife, who is a personal favorite of mine). The characters are often animated with gross over-detail, reminiscent of "Ren and Stimpy."

    The fact that people are even getting worked up over the allusions to K'Nuckles alcoholism is ridiculous. In fact, I'm surprised they even caught it, as they obviously have some sort of mental deficiency and are all out of chill pills. While a lot of the humor is quite silly, the more more subversive jokes will easily go over any young kid's head. And if they still get it, you should probably be praising them for not being as slack-jawed as their peers.
  • People actually watch this... NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS INTENDED FOR VIEWERS OVER THE AGE OF 10

    1.0
    I could rant On and On and On about how much I hate it, but I want to talk more about WHY I hate it. Some people like this show, good for them, they just don't know WHAT it is. Sure, its "appropriate" for kids from 3 to 6, but Having CHILDREN hug older men, who are alcoholics is a pretty bad image to start our kids off on. Sure its Maple Syrup that "Knuckles" drinks, but he drinks some, then acts like a typical drunk. If parents intend to teach their kids to become vulnerable, alcholics then be my guest, let your kids watch this "childrens show" and see what they turn into. If they were to change it to where Knuckles is told not to drink in the show and "Bubby" to tell flapjack not to hug every old man he sees, then we should go ahead and use shows like Total Drama Island, South Park and Family guy tech our kids values... But what do I know, im just 14 and watched the first episode of southpark in 1997 when it came out. Atleast they teach whats right from wrong, jeeze, our kids will learn to cuss in school anyways, so I don't see the big deal in TV MA and PG or PG-13 shows. They're all the same to me.
  • Captain K'nuckles, that is why I watch this show.

    8.5
    I thought this show was pretty good. My brother says it kind of sucks. It's about Flapjack, a positive kid who likes adventures. He is gullible and hangs around this guy name Captain K'nuckles, who assigns many physical jobs to Flapjack. Sometimes Flapjack is a bit annoying. Captain K'nuckles could be mean to Flapjack but he's very cool (in my opinion). I love the art on this show, especially the one on the black plague with the rat. So, they go on these adventures (or some other thing), usually in hope to go to Candied Island. Some episodes were pretty good I suppose. I just watch this when I'm not doing anything.

  • At First,I thought it was terrible,But It's Actually a REALLY good Show!

    10
    This Show is good and Kinda reminds me chowder

    The Show is about a young adventurer named Flapjack and his friends Capt.K'nuckles and whale friend Bubbie.This Show is Humorus and I would recommend it to some people who would like it.

    At First I thought it would be an Epic FAIL,But It is Really a Funny show that has 2 pirates and a whale having adventures at a place called Stormalong Harbor.

    I think it is the only other good show on CN Right now (Besides E,E n E and Chowder) This Show Rocks and I Hope It Does good on Cartoon Network.
  • Would give this show a zero if the rating system would let me, and btw, there's only one word to describe this show: TRASH.

    1.0
    This show is STUPID. It has no point to it whatsoever, I didn't even have to watch 5 minutes of this mess to know that it was a waste of time. All its about is a little boy called Flapjack who's a wannabe pirate and hangs out with this UGLY captain he calls a friend, and all they do is sit back and eat every possible form of sweets and then call it an adventure-garbage! Also, just not to be left out, the animation is disgusting, my dog can draw better than the animators of this show, the plots of the episode are meaningless and the jokes don't make NO sense and are an extremely pathetic attempt to be funny. I don't even know why I bother watching CN anymore, the only real shows that I find interesting are TDI and Chowder (which has its moments as well). What happened to the good old shows like Dexter's Lab, Ed, Edd n' Eddy, Johnny Bravo, etc.? Well its a real pity that the great classics had to be cancelled and be replaced by this bull like this that the company claims to be a cartoon, BAH! My final words are to Cartoon Network, and I'll keep em short and sweet................. WAKE UP!!!!!!
  • This show is mediocre, but still gets a few laughs.

    7.0
    I watch this show from time to time, but it's not one of my favorites. However, I don't despise it either. Cartoons rarely make me laugh, and Flapjack is included in this list. The plots are usually clever and origional, and this is what keeps me watching. One of my pet peeves with many modern-day cartoons is animation, and Flapjack is no exception. However, I rarely pay attention to this.

    I now need several more words, but have nothing else to say about the show. Oh dear, that's problematic.

  • Have you ever experienced a show like this? Nope. ADVENTURE!!

    10
    I'll try to keep this short, but along with Chowder, Flapjack is one of the few new CN shows that's pulling the network back uphill! The show tells of an adventurous young boy named Flapjack who takes the advice of a washed up old pirate named Captain K'Nuckles. They live inside a whale named Bubbie in Stormalong Harbor and are always trying to reach the legendary Candied Island.

    I've seen every episode so far! The animation is very unique and the plots are cleverly written. I find each episode to teach a moral, one of the few shows left to really make that clear. My favorite characters are Flapjack, Peppermint Larry, and Dr. Barber (though he looks kind of creepy). Overall, Flapjack is just the way to go. Like Chowder? Well, go for another Adventure. Adventure!
  • The best cartoon network show.

    9.6
    This show is so cool. Its about Flapjack, a young boy who wants to be an adventureer, his best friend, K,nuckles whos a pirate with metal claws, and Bubbie the caring whale mother of flapjack who is the fastest whale in stormalong. We follow them on their many crazy adventurs to try and find candy island. The person who thougt of this is a genius. And the background voices are a crackup (for example when they were getting two peices of candy). This is the best show on cartoon network and one of my favorites. A must watch show and an instant classic
  • OMG

    10
    I love this show. When I first saw promos for it I thought " I'm not even wasting my time on it." But I watched the first episode to give it a chance and now I love it. Bubbie is so funny. K'Nuckles is so mean it's funny. I love every charactor for a different reason. I have seen every episode every to air. I dont want to see this show get cancelled. I need this show or I will die. I always thought pirates were stupid but now there funny. Comedy helps me comprihend anything. I dont even know what I can say about this. All I can say is it is sooo Funny and I love it.
  • There's finally another cartoon worth watching!

    9.4
    First of all, don't be put off by a bad first impression of "The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack", because you're not going to get the full effect of this show, until you actually sit down and pay attention to it a couple of times. Sure, it hones a certain brand of humor that not everybody likes, but I think a lot of us who appreciate said humor still avoid the show, because it does sort of remind you of a blatant Spongebob rip-off, doesn't it? Well, you'd be surprised, because "Flapjack" is in a league of its own...

    I do catch myself wishing the episodes had a little more depth to them, sometimes, but where the storyline lacks, the characters make up for it. I've watched plenty of cartoon shows, over the years, and so many involve characters that aren't really anymore than... well, cartoons! And so I hardly ever find myself genuinely intrigued by cartoon characters. But "Flapjack's" ensemble of characters play a predominant role in why I watch this show whenever I can. They're funny and realistic (to the best extent they can be) and I found myself automatically attached to each of them. This is a feat, I say, a feat! Bottom line: Flapjack, K'nuckles, Bubbie, and all the rest completely make this show.

    And if you're a fan of shows like Invader ZIM, Ren & Stimpy, the Angry Beavers, Courage the Cowardly Dog, or any such cartoons that are bizarre, amusing, and pretty much all-around insane, then I beg you to give "Flapjack" a try. Everything about this show is out-there and like a breath of fresh air.

    Long live "Flapjack"! =D
  • Can pirates ever be cool again?!

    1.0
    I never thought pirates could be so lame since 4kids' One Piece dub. I mean, These characters that claim to be pirates only eat candy and talk about friendship. Do they do anything that pirates acually do? Like collecting treasure and pillaging and stealing treasure from other ships? Even if the show creators wanted to keep it kiddy and have the "pirates" only like candy, couldn't they pillage candy from other ships? Or do something to act more like pirates?

    Another problem I have with this show: Flapjack's design. It dosen't look like any special effort went into it. I mean, Flapjack is only a stick figure. Anyone with a little talent could draw him. Same thing for the captain and the whale.

    P.S. Its not funny!
  • Wow CN has made a decent show for once.

    6.5
    The show starts off with a young boy Flapjack, and a blue adult(if he's even a human) Captain K'nuckles going on random adventures. It sounds like another spin-off, but it isn't its all original. What l like about this show is the following, one how they get away with so much stuff, like one episode where a guy has children doing hard manual labor by powering his mechanical whale. It also has some of the most hideous and repulsive people you could ever imagine, but in a short summary this is a show that is original and funny. Overall:8.6
  • Love IT!!!!!!!!

    9.8
    This and Chowder are my favorite new shows yet! Its funny, its cute, It adventures! The Worst part about this show is it can be destribing. My favorite episode is Looking for Love (IN all the wrong Barrles. mY least favorite is the Sweet Life. This really shows a goood family in my opion. I loe how Bubbie is Like Flapjacks mom well Actual That Justs CREEPY. THis is my Second favorite new show on CN! I hope this show gets 7 or 8 season like I am hoping for Chowder cause they desevre it. Give this show a chance everybody!
