Alright. But certainly not as good as previous Cosgrove Hall Features!, 19 December 2006
Author: ian-1211 from West Hove, England

Surely after the success of "Count Duckula" Cosgrove Hall should of had more imagination than this! This so-so new cartoon series from 1993 was not terrible but certainly was not great! They might of been in the 1990's but they could of keep the original 1980's Cosgrove Hall animation style other than modernising it to keep up with the tastes of that period. Getting to the point, the shows is about three bike-mad penguins trying to foiling of a mad scientist. Right? Right! The stories are good but the humour and the animation drags it downs. You shouldn't make a cartoon in the style of the period you're living in, you should do animation how you like and how it fits your image. I also thought the characters were cheesy and the message was overdone. If you are looking for a cartoon to revive your nostalgia of the mid 90's, than this is the thing you're looking for. I just didn't think it was that great! But I'm going to be generous and give it 5/10. I feel for Cosgrove Hall Productions, after the likes of "Danger Mouse" and "Alias the Jester" this is a step down! Fair? 5/10
