Trivia

Back when the series was in development in 2004, the planned series was somewhat different. Background designer Brad Graham was originally slated to do the character designs and backgrounds, and even story elements. The character designs looked completely different (except for Lab Rat's pet rat Hermes), and had more of a conventional "abstract" look like most modern kids' cartoons of the time, but many of Graham's elements, including story, remained in the final version. The more diverse Grossology team lineup consisted of Abby and Ty (who were still the main characters, only Abby had pigtails rather than the long trademark ponytail), Nigel Stodding (a British kid fashioned like 1960s secret agent Harry Palmer), Lab Rat (who was a fat white kid, but still had Hermes), and a weirder assortment of kids including Pink Eye (a beatnik boy), Creepy Crawly (a goth girl with spiders), Sloppy Joe (a dirty spud-shaped kid, who ultimately became an adult villain for the series) and Colin Polyp (a bulb-headed kid who may have evolved into the adult villain Dr. Cornelius Colon in the final series). Abby and Ty still went to Ringworm Junior High School (which looked like a more classic-style high school than the more modern one-level one in the series), and the Gag Lab was originally a more complex underground secret base called the Grossotorium (much like in Dexter's Laboratory (1996)). Abby and Ty did not wear Slime Suits at this point; that was devised upon the success of Pixar's The Incredibles (2004). See more »

One of my favorite cartoons on TV!
18 August 2007 | by (Richmond, VA) – See all my reviews

I've already been aware of the bestselling GROSSOLOGY kids' fun-fact books by Sylvia Branzei (which became a CD-ROM game and children's' museum exhibit), and my first experience with it was back in 1997 or 1998, when Mom left a fake plastic vomit on my computer desk one morning (the GROSSOLOGY CD-ROM came with this, since she worked at Computer City at the time), and my grandma thought it was funny! But I never imagined that a decade later, this simple little book would later become Canada's answer to THE INCREDIBLES and KIM POSSIBLE!

In early June of this year, I was having a conversation on the phone with my older brother in Pennsylvania, who informed me of this series. I thought he was talking about the books or game, but he told me it was a Canadian cartoon series similar to THE INCREDIBLES (which I'm a big fan of), and was animated in Flash (it was actually done with Toon Boom Digital Pro, as I soon found out, and was done by the same team as another cool Canadian cartoon show, 6TEEN). He saw it on Discovery Kids (where it's airing here in the US; It airs on YTV in Canada) and he thought I would love it! I just had to check this out, so I sampled the episode "Fartzilla" (about a fart epidemic and a fart-powered robot dinosaur), and I was hooked! Not just by the wild action and the sick & twisted content, but the visual style and animation! I already love the colorful retro-style, and Faruk Cemalovic's character designs are excellent, on par with Stephen Silver's work. Abby Archer, the show's heroine, is my favorite character! (And one of my favorite cartoon girls!) Just plain pretty, and full of charm and appeal. Plus, Abby has flaws, unlike the politically correct cartoon heroines these days. The other characters, including Ty (Abby's brother), Lab Rat and the Director are superb, as are the villains (Lance Boil, the "Mojo Jojo" of this series, is my favorite)!

If you can get past the "gross" theme aimed at kids, adults, even cartoon buffs, will love the dynamic visual style. But for me, GROSSOLOGY is my favorite new cartoon series, right up there with THE POWERPUFF GIRLS and THE VENTURE BROS.! I highly recommend it!
