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!
I love this show,its one of my favorites,its funny,and just makes you want to watch.I love the simple animation,it is what gives it a distained look.The characters are funny and give the show a not wide but diverse group of characters,captain k'nuckels is funny,flapjack is childish and full of energy,and its funny how bubby blames captain k'nuckels for everything and makes him sleep in the barrel.I like the idea of stormalong,a bunch of logs put togather to form a town.Its a great show to watch,its funny and entertainig,and it has a charm to it,with great characters and colorfull settings and backround.
Though it may come off a little strange, and even cat and dog, Flapjack surprisingly shines with its simplicity and shows how an eccentric crew of strange characters encompassed within an even stranger writing style can prove refreshing.
I will be not the first nor the last to admit it but I've grown very cynical of animation given the past few years. The best that Cartoon Network has thrown at us are mediocre shadows of animation; Chop Socky Chooks, Johnny Test, and Squirrel Boy to name a few. Truth be known, when it comes to animated creativity since giving their classic and more popular shows the boot it seems that Cartoon Network is going into a spiraling drought. But there do remain a few slivers of hope for the network, and after giving it a few more watches, I really feel Flapjack is one of them if even a small light of hope. The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack is simple in concept and animation. An adventurous pirate who seeks a fortune in candy on the legendary Candied Island is rescued by a small, amusingly naive boy named Flapjack and his unusually maternal whale Bubbie. They run into a wide assortment of strange misadventures in their harbor home of Stormalong, which also plays home to a number of very strange characters, friend and foe to our trio alike. And as simple as that concept is, thankfully it's not written so simply. The style in which the characters are drawn makes use of all different shapes, colors and an odd yet amusing variety of facial expressions. The animation seems simple, but it definitely packs a toony punch that has long since been missed since just about every "good" cartoon has made the Godawful transition into 3D. Just the strange designs are enough to catch the eye (K'nuckles, Peppermint Larry, Punzy to name a few.). Seriously, thank God that there are some 2D toons left since the computer animation age has begun, just thought I'd make my relief for that clear before moving on.
The execution of gags, by means of strange substitutions of logic and typical cartoon antics make for a good watch as well. The strange acceptance of sending plague victims to an island and just forgetting them, random singing in odd places of the episodes, and making a complete hassle of something simple as hitting a brake on a trolley to name a few examples. The cartoony antics are another; characters are burnt literally to a crisp when out in cthe sun for too long, limbs stretch, faces contort, again this is the sort of thing I've missed since Saturday mornings spent watching Looney Tunes. (Seriously, why does a cartoon have to be "realistic" to be good these days? Even supposedly more realistic mediums of animation such as anime have their cartoony moments such as "sweatdropping", being hit by large fans, etc.) Just how the strange animation catches the eye is enough to at least give this show a chance.
The way the episodes are written prove to be just as odd as the animation serving vehicle to the ideas. The plots are simple in concept and can come off as unoriginal, but given the antics and the humor mentioned above at least they're done in a funny and original way that makes it worth watching. Sometimes it seems like the episodes fly by just too fast, and you wonder how it happened! And some bits and pieces that just seem random or off-key with the rest of the episode leave you kind of wondering "...What?", but usually it lingers in a good way, like understanding an odd joke. Overall, I think this show is just strangely written enough with an even better blend of characters to definitely give Flapjack a watch. It IS a weird show, but I think that's the idea, and given that it's caught my attention with its at times a tad morbid or just absurd humor, I can safely say that it's definitely one of the better choices Cartoon Network is offering nowadays among the rest of the junk it seems determined to serve up. Go on, and give Flapjack a try at least!!
Ok. So The Marvelous Misadventures Of Flapjack Is going to have to be one of my favorite shows!
A show based on a small community that lives in Stormalong Harbor. The main Group consists of Captin K'nuckles,Bubby,and flapjack.
K'nuckles And flapjck live inside bubby. Who is a whale. Just off the dock of stormalong harbor.
The idea of the show is that Flapjack want to be a brave adventurer And the whole gang wants to travel out to candy island! And island with candly galore! If you dont understand why candy is important I will tell you. Candy is A MAJOR part of this show. It's the point of peppermint larry..*another character* Who owns a candy bar in stormalong.
All together This is one show Im seriously hooked on.
The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack is a must-see. Though the animation seems squalid, and the plot is sometimes completely disorganized, this show continues to shine with decent, semi-interesting characters.
This show surprised me, I was expecting a mediocre show about pirates, but instead I got a decent show with good plot(most of the time) and fun characters. However, it can get monotonous and even to the extent of becoming a nuisance, these aspects, such as the frequent singing while presenting objects, titles, etc., are what lowers my rating for this show. However, the show can be a bit funny and cruel at times.(A boy beating up a fly, he has no mercy, he continually kicks and pounds the fly, miraculously, the fly survives)The show is usually very fun to watch and keeps you entertained, which is the of course the purpose of the show.(The show does its job) Suspenseful sea battles, juvenile delinquents flying and acting as heat seeking missiles, nets, and eye pokers, is what makes this show great in my opinion.
i love this show its about a kid named flapjack with a freind named captain k,nuckles and flapjack was raised by a whale named bubby this is my 2nd cn show with the first being chowder and 2nd being ed edd n eddy well its all about an orphan named flapjack he got raised by a whale named bubby who acts like a mother to flapjack she is very very nice to him and then awile he meets a washed up sea pirate named.........captain k,nuckles he teaches him how 2 be an adventurer and i just love this show it deserves a 10.0 and that wraps it up bye.
Oh, now this show is a show that I like to feature in connections and other stuff. However, this show keeps making too many excuses because there are too many episodes that are boring. I can get easily bored of watching this show, or the episodes aren't boring. Maybe they aren't fun in story or plot. They couldn't be good enough to write a plot or something, but I thought that this show will do good before it premired. After watching six episodes, one-thirds of it was fun. I sometimes like this show, but now I don't watch it that often. So, it's an 8 out of 10.
There is a boy named Flapjack born and raised in Stormalong and his mom is a whale named Bubbie. All Bubbie ever does all day is spy on people having no real life of her own while Flapjack has adventures with his role model a pirate named Captain K'nuckles. Captain K'nuckles wants to go to a place called candied island as stated in the theme song. the theme song goes like this Captain K'nuckles: Flapjack! Hey, Flapjack! Come with me, we'll go and see a place called Candied Island!
Bubbie: Who needs Candied Island? It's safer at the docks.
Captain K'nuckles: But there ain't no streams of sodie pop to go drippin' down the rocks.
Bubbie: It's dangerous and risky!
Captain K'nuckles: But adventurous and free!
Flapjack: Adventure - that's the life for me!
Captain K'nuckles: There's lollipop trees and a lemonade sea!
Bubbie: Doesn't sound very good to me.
Others: The Misadventures of...
Flapjack: ...Flapjack! The other characters on this show are Dr. Barber who is a doctor and a barber, A man who sells candy named Peppermint Larry, his wife candy wife who is made entirely out of candy. Lastly Flapjack, K'nuckles, and Bubbie
I don't like this show. This show is a rip off version of Chowder. This show is all talk and sometimes doesn't make sense. The good shows are those shows that you can watch and understand/laugh at without really paying attention. In this show, you NEED to pay attention. When I watch a show, I expect them to make there comedy out of funny movements and faces. Not by what they say. Especially if they can't make a good joke out of it. This show shouldn't go any further. Let Chowder get the fame CN, not this show. Geez CN!
The Marvelous misadventures of Flapjack is so Marvelous indeed. It's a very funny show with some lessons of life. though the only thing that bugs me(You're gonna think it's weird) Is the color it make me throw - up. But that's just the way they make it look piratey i guess. Just why does everyone hate it. Maybe it's because your a bit older than me. who knows? I will admit i am a little immature for 13, A LITTLE! but Flap jack rules. This has been a great cartoon that I've seen in a while. I don't know why but i think this show is similar to Chowder. I have no idea Y. I have one more thing to say... Adventure!!!!!
One thing about this show is that it is one of the most immature shows ever. Why Cartoonnetwork why. Why do you keep making stupid cartoonnetwork shows why. This show has stuff about pirates which I don't like. And the violence is not good at all. I just need to trow-up right now. Because does that captain guy has no skin on his hands because that's just nasty. The main character... Flapjack he looks *** look at his pants the way he talks the way he looks he look like a girl god dammit. To end the reveiw I'd like to say to Cartoonnetwork if you're going to make shows, don't make them immature please!
1.Plot-Boring and terrible.Pirate is getting candy.How lame is that.Pirates want the treasure full of gold and jewerly.
2.Jokes-the jokes don't make sense at all.
I gave it a few chances.What Cartoon Network are you thinking.You finally hit the right direction with Chowder.Flapjack do not deserved to be compared to Chowder.I mean Chowder have more originality than Flapjack.This is another hit or miss type tv show,more miss than hits.This show was a total letdown.Overall in my personal opinion it's just another overrated show in Cartoon Network along with Ben 10,Foster's,and TDI.This is LSUstinks11 tellling you a good night.
I don't know why I had even watched this, it sucks so bad. It may be related to Chowder, in terms of animation but when it comes to funny, this show is horrible. And then there's Flapjack, his voice is so annoying and he's so stupid that when you watch it you get dumber for even having watched it. Seriously, my IQ dropped a point when I watched this crap. The storyline is just retarded. Who ever wrote this should be sent to jail, for ten years and have their animation education revoked. I feel sorry for the show that got replaced by this crap.
All in all a 3. Only because it's related to Chowder in some way, it's more of a ripoff then anything.
This show started as a humble short cartoon, or "Wedgie", on Cartoon Network, but with its many bizarre aspects, it managed to score a place on the full-time circuit.
At first, i myself thought it was terrible, but my little brother started watching, and it became painfully addictive!
its many characters pull you in with their antics, from the insane Dr.Barber and his quartet of sweepers to the main cast, including the wide-eyed and eager Flapjack, Captain K'nuckles, the *ahem* struggling father figure with a very judgement-impairing sweet tooth (i know your pain, friend), and Bubbie, the wise and motherly...whale. so for all of its oddities *coughCAMMIEcough*, this show has really made smething out of itself.
I hate this show so much. It's not even rometly funny. It's just a bunch of BS. They have dull chracters, dull animation,dull humor, it's just an all around dull show. I wonder who even thought of this show. It's so dumb, You gain nothing for it. It's pointless. It's not entertaining it's not fun to watch it's not mind enriching it's just a really bad show.It's like someone just got a pen and a peice of paper and started doddleing something because they were bored. It's so bad thiers not even a word for it. It's just a load of crap.
You have to watch this show!!This show is hilarious!!! I love its originality and would even like to meet the crew behind the idea.I guess its all in each persons sense of humor.I happen to have a friend who looks just like "Peppermint Larry" with the big gums and small teeth.its just a riot!!I have been drawing for many years and have always come up with the strangest characters that you could ever think of.that also why i identify my imagination so much with this show.I could just imagine how much fun these guys have coming up with the storyboards.Keep up the good work!!!!
What defines a cartoon for you? Is it the plot? The animation, the atmosphere, or the appeal? Does it need to be entertaining, educational, or both? Why am I asking you these questions? Shouldn't I be getting on with the review?
The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack is a recent cartoon and a quite engaging one at that. Now, flipping through the reviews on this site, I can see some positive but a few negative ones with the score at the least, "1". Why "1"? Is the show that bad? Does it really need a "1"?
The show isn't bad. In fact, I think it gets good with each episode. I mean, I had high expectations for it when I first heard about it and saw previews for it. Even when I saw the first few episodes... They weren't bad, not what I was quite expecting but not bad. It was okay. Though, when I saw the next few episodes, I came to the conclusion that this show could actually be one of CN's best shows. It's certainly starting to seem like that as I watch more of it.
The quality of the show is pretty attractive. The main setting, Stormalong Harbor, is portrayed as a dark and bleak place. The art styles are varied, too, and take influences from several different eras in time. But, never modern times. You really can't get any 'o' that dark feel from Modern Day stuff. In a way, the whole theme of the show is basically a tribute to sailor folklore and old legends. It's great because you don't normally get those kind of shows.
The backgrounds aren't the only interesting sights. The character designs are pretty neat, too, and are sometimes simple enough to improvise on. One example is in one episode when a certain disease-carrying rodent transforms the Stormalong residents into horrific messes, making them more ugly than they already are. The main characters, Flapjack, K'nuckles, and Bubbie, also seem to have simple yet fun designs.
I love the writing for this series. I won't bother typing up the main plot since you probably already know it from either watching the series or reading the TV.com summary. I will tell you that although the plot sounds overused, the plots in the episodes certainly aren't... Or maybe are, but in a really hidden, subtle way. Y'know, in a way where you probably wouldn't notice right off the bat or at all, really. ;) Like, for example, one episode involves the Flapjack and K'nuckles sneaking on a ship only to arrive at the wrong island. Another one, which is much more lighter, involves Flapjack and K'nuckles hitching a trolley ride in hopes of getting to a cure for their footburns.
Anyways, for those who dismiss the show right off the bat, don't. The show is getting on its feet and to me, is one of the more enjoyable shows on Cartoon Network at the moment.
Well this show is okay. CN must of thought of something good. The show can be sometimes funny but I would prefer this show to a younger audience lets say the ages 5 to 12 but when you are a little older you don't find it that interesting no more but it is pretty cool to watch it when you are those ages. Flap jack does act funny sometimes and can make me laugh but it is not a show I would like to watch and for it to be in my favorites and I know that is because I have seen the commercials. CN should keep this show for a little longer for a younger audience infact they should keep it. The show gets a 7.5 out of 10. Not a bad show actually CN might get back to it's getting back to it's old self slowly.
Here's the basic line of the show. A mentally challenged wannabe pirate named Flapjack teams up with a self-centered jerk named K'nuckles to find "candy island" On the way the adventures are impaired by K'nuckles' poor sense of direction (really pirate like eh?) and Flapjack's incredibly low intelligence, seriously who the heck came up with that. And K'nuckles seems to use Flapjack for personal gain and Bubby the whale seems to take care of Flapjack for some reason I don't want to know. Is there a message children should see? Glorifying mental retardation is okay? Intelligence is not allowed? Dancing like a fool in public is a local pastime for youth? There are no positive moral messages in this show. If idiot conservatives say video games cause violent habits in youth, well I say shows like these are part of the reason why American youth are incredibly stupid and sociopathic.
People seriously enjoy this show?? Give me a break. Cartoonnetwork is seriously lowering it's standards. I'll begin with the art. It's terrible, sloppy, and it gives me the impression that the artists don't at all care about their work, and have no pride. I am aware animation is hard, but if you're gonna broadcast it, work hard!
The actual show is way way way worse. Flapjack is an idiot pirate, and the jokes are not funny in the least bit. It's one of those shows where you can feel your I.Q. dropping. This is a terrible show-I'd rather watch grass die! It's terrible shows like this that cancel good shows like Code Lyoko, and so many others that suffered the same fate.
I've seen a few episodes of this show, and after those episodes this is now my favorite show. The intro is amazing. The time and effort that was put into the intro is astounding,it's just so unique and funny. I haven't seen an episode of the show yet that didn't make me laugh, it's just such an original and funny show. There is a part in one of the episodes where Kid Nickels beats a fly up with his toes, which is hilarious. Basically the show is near perfect from what I've seen, and I can't wait to see if it gets another season. I will be heartbroken if the show ends after the first season so I'll have to tune in as much as I can, and contribute to the ratings, and anyone who agrees with this review should do the same and watch the show as much as possible.
Flapjack is sort of a pirate cartoon. It is one of cartoon network's worst original shows ever. The worst part of the series is the main character: Flapjack. He wants to be some kind of adventurer, but he acts stupid. It gets so annoying having to hear him laugh or even see him smile. And he talks like he's 4 years old or something. This sho is just as bad , or even worse than Zixx (I thought is was impossibleto be as bad as Zixx is, but congratulations). I think Cartoon Network is just starting to get desperate since they ended some of their best shows, such as Samurai Jack, Billy and Mandy, Ed Edd and Eddy, Bo Bo Bo, and Code Lyoko.
The first thing one will feel when they see this show, is that the animation was done poorly. The illustrations just make the show seem unappealing, and turn viewers away. The character designs don't add much to it, either. They are very sloppy, and the puppet images are pretty dull and bland. However, though an ugly show, it's OKAY at times. It does seem a bit dumb, though, especially since pirates never really cared about candy, and what could have been a good concept was ruined by a mediocre "pirating" image, though they seem nothing like pirates, just goofballs. The jokes aren't very funny, but they serve a few laughs every one in awhile. But not a whole lot seems to happen in each episode, so the show becomes quickly bland and boring, and some characters such as Flapjack can get rather annoying. So, it's an okay show, but it's not really one to care for much unless you're into the material the show focuses on. On the biggest areas, I'd say:
Probably below par, as it's an acceptable concept, but the story seems to go bland, and have little significance. Plots are also either dumb or uninteresting.
This is probably what the show does worst. It's just unappealing to look at and atrocious character designs just ruin it even more. Puppet images look horrifyingly inconsistent. In short, hardly any effort was spent into the designs of this show.
Voice Talent: 6
What can I say? Flapjack's can be so irritating, and some voice talents are just annoying. Captain K'nuckles, however, has a nice voice for his character.
The pirates theme this show expresses seems interesting, but its mix with silly, "kiddy" stuff just kinda slops it up, and Flapjack's guardian is a terrible example.
Granted, it's not a very appealing show to most eyes, but it can be decent at times, and it's not all that bad compared to other crap out there.
Great, it is something that is easy to understand and just comical enough for little children. It has no "words" that parents don't like their kids using (idiot, stupid). Viewers actually understand the story.
Har, Har, Thursday is here and I've got my series recording set on one show: The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. Although it has a musical, whimsy themesong, and the longest cartoon name, it isn't half bad. It isn't all about its jokes so the watcher can actually get the plot and not focus on how funny the show actually is. It is unrealistic, which is a good attribute, because, come on, who needs another super popular high school drama again? (pokes at hannah montana show ;D) I would say that it is one step ahead of the pirate, sea type story because I think a kid can watch it without having to see a ship looted for gold; instead candy, which is not gruesome nor violent. Seriously, this is what a pirate-y type kid could watch, instead of seeing or reading a bloody Treasure Island (although it is a good book), and think that this is ADVENTURE! To me it is better than Chowder too, because sometimes Chowder has some themes (like Mung Dal being a woman's man while already having a WIFE) and stupid jokes (Rada can bring us to insanity, ya know...!). It is a good show, and I will look forward to watching more of it.
Flapjack's a show about a boy that wants to find candy island. Because him and his friend, Captian Knuckles looove candy. I love candy too. But, I mostly eat donuts. And, Flapjack lives in a whale named, Bubby. I think Captian Knuckles does too. And, first. I thoght this show would be bad to other people. But, I learned that everybody loves this show now. Well, not everybody. I guess. Score:
Animation: 6; Kinda bad, childish.
Humor: 8; Very funny.
Plot 7; Okay
Theme song: 6; Not much of a theme song but, okay.
Voices: 9; They got Brian Doyle Murray. He's really good! :D
I honestly don't understand why Cartoon Network would make a cartoon that encourages children to act like goofballs and eat lots of sweets that causes diabetes. It is also historically inaccurate because last time I checked, pirates didn't care about candy, they cared about attacking citizens, other ships, and treasure hunting. And candy didn't exsist back then. Flapjack's friend K'nuckles is not an excellent role model; all he does is eat candy and he always puts Flapjack in dangerous situations, that is a bad example of being a guardian. The only decent role model in this show is Bubby, and she's a talking whale. Oh and let's not forget Chowder, whose valgur eating habits can influence children to eat more and excerise less, which is not good for their health. Remember children are very impressionable. Not to mention he lacks social skills, that's why he doesn't have any friends around his age. I'm sorry but I don't think there is room in Cartoon Network for two waste-of-everyone's time, idiotic cartoon shows.
Unlike most shows Flapjack does not use Cel-Shading which is perfect. Like Chowder, it contains stopmotion animation and claymation. It contains the voice actor of The Flying Dutchman from Spongebob which is another great twist. Also Bubbie is very interesting and maternal as she takes care of Flapjack. The series also is very Kid-Friendly and does'nt refer to any form of Beer thus making great for your child. Instead of Beer we get Candy which is very popular among children. The only flaws is that it looks very dull and not usually positive and very innaccurate as I barely know of any town that exists in the middle of the sea. Watch the series if you want to but don't if you dislike Sea-faring.
You have GOT too be kidding me. Now im hearing good reviews about this show? and now this show has a bannner? WTF. This show is crap. The drawings are VERY poor, the jokes sucks, and the story line is stupid. I rather watch the show "Three delivery" then this show! Every channel has its horrible shows
Nicktoons Network: Edgar and ellen
The N: Degrassi
now in Cartoonetwork: This show
This has too be one of the worst shows ive seen in a long time. I cant belive people actually like this show. I wish the old cartoon network was back. i want the old shows back
I enjoyed this show as much as Chowder, like I said The Buzz on Maggie fails to be as good as both shows now a days with this Chowder, Home Movies, & George of The Jungle Cartoon Network will have to take of Squrriel Boy & others of there Bad shows
The one episode about Snarks was great, even when Flapjack & K,Nuckles where traped in there ship & I will say it better than seeing Kyle Finsker bulling Rodney & blacknail him for Lying & after the the first 4 episode Flapjack might have a bright future after all in CN.
The past year's been pretty good for Cartoon Network. First we get Chowder, which restored a lot of my faith in the channel, and now we have Flapjack. At first, people will jump to conclusions and call it a ripoff of Chowder or even SpongeBob, but I feel it's going in a different direction. But it's not a bad thing at all.
Flapjack is a little boy who lives in a harbor with Captain K'nuckles, a weird blue pirate. They both live inside Bubbie the Whale, seek out adventure, and eat lots of candy.
The animation can be extremely detailed at times. Many minor characters appear to come off more detailed than the main characters. And like Chowder, it makes use of stop-motion for some scenes.
I personally prefer Chowder, but Flapjack's pretty cool too.
