Being the son of the world famous rock star, Rock Zilla, may sound wonderful for most people, but Willy has a different opinion. All he wants is a normal life and friends who accept him for himself and not because of his parents. When the Zilla family moves to Silent Springs in semi-retirement, Willy sees his chance. However, that normal life will not be easy to find with his wealthy family stirring things up in their own eccentric ways. Regardless, with the help of two newfound true friends, Willy is ready to deal with his unique challenges in a world that is remarkably new to him. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (

i don't no what the heck your talking bout summary not on the film??
11 August 2004 | by (Regina Saskatchewan) – See all my reviews

I love this show i just finished watching it and it is unreal. I agree i am a huge kiss fan and you can see the resemblance of Gene Simmons in Rock Zilla. MY favorite character is Rock Zilla. I totally think this is one of the best cartoons besides the simpsons and family guy. This show totally relates to kids now a days how they think there parents arn't cool and are dorky and everything so i think it is kind of funny to watch. I also think there loser neighbor Mr.kant or something like that is a total whack job. But his voice is kind of funny he sounds like my 90 year old grandpa. HE IS SUPER DUPPER EXTREMELY WEIRD AND UP TIGHT SO STAND BACK!!
