THIS is Plastic Man? Not by a longshot!
16 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Anybody fooled into thinking that this show is the adventures of Plastic Man-think again!!!

First, some vital info:

Plastic Man was created in 1941 by Jack Cole and first appeared in Police Comics #1 (August 1941), published by Quality Comics (itself later purchased by DC Comics). He was a crook named Eel O'Brien, who while trying to rob a chemical company, fell into a vat of experimental acid after being shot. Running away from the building, he fell unconscious, and was found and revived by a group of monks; while recuperating, he found out that he had these amazing stretchy powers, and decided to do good instead of doing bad. After getting Woozy Winks as a sidekick, he fights crime in a series of quirky, offbeat and surreal slapstick adventures-NOT the idiotic and dumb ones as seen in this TV show. He also did not ever meet or have adventures with Penny (although I must admit, now that I know that the current Plastic Man is the son of the original character seen in this show, having Penny as a girlfriend/wife doesn't seem like a bad idea!) or Hula-Hula (an insulting slur on Polynesian people), nor did he have a Plasticmobile or a Plastiplane. It would have been better if the writers had actually tried to read the original stories-they were reprinted up the yingyang since 1965, for frack's sakes-but they didn't, and we have this silly show that's not as funny as the original comic books, complete with a sidekick that makes Woozy Winks look like Dr. Watson.

Let's hope that Warner Bros. Animation can create a new show based on the original characters, situations, AND quirky, offbeat and surreal slapstick the character is known for, and not the nonsense seen in this show.
