The kids might like it...the adults might just pray for death!, 15 November 2010
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

To me, the best kids shows are the ones that both kids and parents can enjoy together. Well, "Lancelot Link" is definitely NOT a program that the parents can after about five minutes the novelty will wear off and the parents will be praying for their own death! It simply is a chore to watch this show unless you are a child. Think about it....the show is nothing but chimps dressed up in human guise and acting out (very crudely) a James Bond-style show. As a 6 year-old, I was even bored by it--though I had friends who watched it regularly. Heck, when I was a senior in high school, I even knew a guy who skipped school just to watch it!! So, obviously someone liked it. But then and now, I simply don't get it and it's a one-joke show that you'll either tolerate or it will annoy you to no end...especially if you are older than 5.
