Really poor animation – nothing for kids or adults.
31 May 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews



David and his family move to live on a beach beside a jungle. In the jungle two groups are hunting. One group are tiny aliens, on earth to hunt for their magic pearls. The second group is a women hunter and her monkey sidekick, they are hunting and trapping animals in the jungle and also seeking to catch the aliens. Behind the scenes an evil property developer Mr Stealmore (wow - how subtle) has plans to strip the jungle of it's hidden treasure and to bulldoze it to build a city. Can David help to save the jungle?

Some animation is witty and clever with plenty for kids and adults. Some is terrible - cheap, nasty and poorly produced. Guess which type this is! The story here is quite basic - David the child saves all the animals and aliens in the jungle, confounding the criminals. The way it is told makes it even worse. The main narrative device is a very lazy - David does a voice over which goes a top speed and makes glib statements to keep the story moving. His voice is really annoying and will probably irritate children and adults.

The animation is big and colourful - mostly animals and adults with big eyes and heads. It is really lazy and is a million years away from Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes animation of the 50's! It's really hard to watch because it is so lazy and childish. The voices are poor - David is particularly annoying and his parents are just jokes. The rest of the characters are cute animals but, because they are poorly drawn, they have no personalities and could really be anything.

This plays like a lazy Saturday morning cartoon. It makes no effort in any area - story, characters, animation, anything! Avoid this and watch any other cartoon - even things like Rugrats and other kids things are better realised than this rubbish.
