Why was this jewel ever cancelled, why oh why oh why?
28 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw all 6 episodes on YouTube today, and I am wondering why this show was cancelled. The obvious answer is that it fell victim to network ratings. To me it is a highly underrated show, while not the best show on earth, I would definitely see the episodes again. The ideas for the show were imaginative, and the stories were simple but well-told. The dialogue is witty and inventive , and is the main reason why the show was as good as it was. The animation was excellent, with lovely colours and imaginative backgrounds. Though it may be dated by today's standards. The characters, while not as memorable as other animation characters are appealing, and are nimbly voiced by the likes of Megan Mullally, Hector Elizando, Tim Curry and the late John Ritter. Another honourable mention should go to Phil Hartman as Inspector CBass in the episode "Fish out of water". The music by James Horner is wonderful and dynamic. If you come across this show, watch it if you like shows that are really good but were unfairly cancelled, like Darkwing Duck, Talespin and Peter Pan and the Pirates. 10/10 Bethany Cox.
