A Great Show, Dumb Reviewers...
5 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My Gym Partner's a Monkey, compared to many (hell, not many, all of' em!) of the newer shows on Cartoon Network, is a classic - yes, a classic. It's a about a boy named Adam Lion who is transfered to an all animal school (cause' Lion's his last name). There, he meets his best friend, Jake Spidermonkey, and a number of other lovable characters. Original, clever, well-written, nice story with great characters, funny (I mean FUNNY), etc., etc... Believe me, this show definitely deserves a higher user score than 5.6/10! In-fact, I see that most Cartoon Network classics how not-so high scores! Pff... What a shame, such a great show!
