Sunny Bridges (or just Sunny) is among the biggest music stars of his time. However, he grew sick of the commercialism and fame that came with his craft, and longed to "follow the music" again. To find it, he traveled to his childhood neighborhood, "A-Town", and stumbled upon the First-Year Music Class of the Westley Performing Arts Academy. The class consists of the overconfident drummer Li'l D who longs to be like Sunny, the sassy, brash and violent harpist Tamika, the geeky and "out-there" bass player Philly Phil, the ultra-rich and somewhat spoiled horn playing Eddie, the Asian twin percussionists Kim and Kam who are polar opposites of each other, and the vacantly happy violinist Madison. Sunny is impressed with their musical talents and decides to become their music teacher when the old one is sent away...to jail. Now, Sunny's musical tutelage mixes with this "Class of 3000"'s own unique artistic spirit to create some very weird situations! Written by
I, my wife and my children LOVE this series! It's a throwback to the Jackson 5ive series of old...corny jokes and visual puns great music, and a lot of fun. The series has a particular look--abstract, vibrant, very jazzy--it may not be for your average cartoon fan. It's got an arsty feel.
I love the musicality of the tracks--definitely more than cheesy kids songs but not ridiculous pop drivel. We've bought the soundtrack and the kids will go bananas when they hear it--lots of energy!
I'd say the older kids may not dig it as much, but for my younger kids ( 2 5 and 8) and grown ups who are familiar with Andre's music...it's good stuff.
