The movie is good, the series is better! My favorite episode is "Jet Fusion"--EXCELLENT episode with a great cast. This is undoubtedly the best animated program that Nick has ever produced.
I just had to write a decent comment to replace the last one that I read. A previous commenter did not like the show very much, saying that it was aimed at 3 to 6 year olds--must have been over his head (as is evidenced by his expanded vocabulary). Not to mention, it IS a cartoon and cartoons typically DO target children.
However, this show actually targets a much older age group, with references to episodes of the old Twilight Zone (such as the Burgess Meredith episode where he was the last man on earth) and other old television shows. It also frequently employs "gags" that my children don't get because they are just too young. However, there is plenty of up-to-date fun for the kids to enjoy the show.
While thoroughly entertaining, the show manages to teach some great values as well. After all, the star is super smart and still has friends, showing that you can be intelligent and still have social skills. It also teaches children to think their way out of problems, without pushing it so hard that it detracts from the story.
Anyone that doesn't find this show fun is either too young to get the jokes, or just way too old to remember what fun is!
