When it comes to Cartoon Network, the world starts and stops for Adventure Time and Regular Show. These are just the facts. Those two shows are full of brilliant writing, hilarious dialogue and often, badass action. Both are shows created for the hipster crowd by the hipster crowd. Both are equal parts Where The Wild Things Are and Clerks. Both are brilliant in every sense of the word. Then, there’s The Amazing World of Gumball.

That might sound like a slight, but truly, it isn’t. When Gumball started, I was excited. It looked fun, incredibly charming and incredibly imaginative. The two lead characters, Gumball, a blue cat and his adopted brother Darwin (a goldfish) live in a world populated by absurd creatures and characters, including a Tyrannosaurus Rex who lives at the junkyard, a anthropomorphic bunny rabbits, hag-like monkey teachers and balloon children who can’t do much due to lack of hands. »
