Storyline

There are four childhood friends that, while they might be seperated by different colleges, have a strong friendship they vow to maintain. However, Nitz, the most regular of the guys, learns that there are new experiences and friends to have and meet that will profoundly refashion his friendship with Gimpy, the reclusive computer geek, Rocko the dumb jock and Cal the effeminate ladies man. All the while though, their relationship will remain even as they go through the college years and all the changes that era in their lives entails. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

A masterpiece of writing and animation
7 December 2005 | by (Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

There is nothing quite like "Undergrads". Although tragically cut off after its first season, it was and continues to be (in my opinion) one of the best cartoons ever made.

With only 13 episodes, it develops its characters better than most shows that have run for years -- and surprisingly enough, for a "teen" animated series about college, really makes you care about them.

Truth be told, it actually blends its outrageous (and often what would be considered in "polite" circles as vulgar) teen humour nearly seamlessly with ample wit, homages, drama, heart, and a true-to-life unpretentiousness (is that a word?) -- and does it without coming off as being at all kitschy.

It paints a picture of teenage life, but paints it so vividly that it's hard to take your eyes off it. And all with the accessibility and quotability of Family Guy.

Granted, it has its share of absurd situations and hyperbole, but it is a cartoon after all... And either way, it more than makes of for it with its writing and a solid soundtrack.

A must-see particularly for fans of Clone High, Mission Hill, Family Guy or Drawn Together (and from what I hear, Daria as well).
