Jim was just your average Earthworm until he stumbled upon a supersuit that evolved him. It also gave him super-strength, and various gadgets. But the forces of evil (Psycrow, Professor Monkey-for-a-head, Queen Slug-for-a-butt) looms to in to take his super-suit. He now fights evil with his sidekick Peter Puppy (who has an Incredible Hulk complex) and his girl friend Princess What's-Her-Name. But does Jim have what it takes to save the world? And where does that cow keep coming from? Written by
Put simply, "Earthworm Jim" was one of the funniest and most entertaining television programs on the air during the time of its run, and remains one of the most creatively humorous cartoons of all time.
The series takes several of the characters and scenarios from the video game it's based on and brings them to stunning life, including Princess What's-Her-Name, Peter Puppy (who'd always honor anything at all that impressed him with the "Better than..." comment), and a motley cast of rogues who helped keep things funny.
It's truly one of the most notable animated shows in history (and had a great theme song too), so here's hoping it's preserved on DVD.
