Storyline

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 (kchishol@rogers.com)

Two thumbs up!
26 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I must admit, I didn't like it too much when I saw the first episode, but since then it grew on me. Another reason I wanted to watch it is because it is created by Gene Simmons and I am a big KISS fan. This cartoon shows the generation difference, how young kids think their parents are not cool. I love this show and my favourite character is Rock Zilla. It doesn't take Einstein to see the the similarity between Rock Zilla and Gene Simmons. I mean the hair, the tongue and the make up!
