Storyline

Adolescent emperor/designator Kuzco isn't allowed to rule or live in the palace until he graduates from Kuzco Academy. Being a naughty, lazy pupil, he's in danger of remaining an uneasy guest in lama-herdsman Pacha's humble family for long. He may even be deposed altogether, if evil pretender Yzma gets her way in endless schemes involving gentle giant Kronk and magical potions. Yet flippant Kuzco pursues puerile pleasures and fellow pupil Malina, his opposite as commoner model pupil, uninterested yet often his salvation, as is Kronk. Written by KGF Vissers

Not as good as the film, but a worthy series still
5 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Right, first things first, The Emperor's New School is not the best show on Disney, neither is it the worst. And is it as good as the film The Emperor's New Groove? No it isn't. But to be fair I wasn't expecting it to be, as the film was one of Disney's funniest, original and heartfelt films and by far and away one of the better post-Renaissance Disney movies. That said, this is a worthy and somewhat interesting series.

True, some of the story lines are on the repetitive and shallow side, and Kuzco can be a while to get used to at first as he is much more arrogant and self-centred(he can be rather dumb on occasions too) than he is in the movie to the point he is irritating, plus some of the episodes are a tad rushed. However, I loved the concept, it wasn't COMPLETELY original but it was an interesting concept at that.

The animation is beautiful, smooth, colourful and crisp as I like it, especially in the backgrounds. The characters can occasionally I agree be sugarcoated, but they are mostly sharp. The music is funky and memorable, while the writing is funny. Yes some of the jokes are taken from the original movie, but the delivery is fresh making it funny. And the voice acting is great. Patrick Warburton does a great job reprising his role as the clumsy but very likable Kronk, but the real kudos goes to Eartha Kitt who plays the villainess Yzma to hilarious perfection.

In conclusion, not brilliant but I like it- it is fun and interesting. Conversely if you want something more original and, dare I say it, funnier see the movie. 7/10 Bethany Cox
