Really weird, kind of a throwback
10 June 2008 | by (Brooklyn) – See all my reviews

I caught this one afternoon when I was bored. I've never seen the movie and I don't watch a lot of Cartoon Network outside of Futurama, The Venture Brothers, and a few other lessor shows on Adult Swim.

I actually just had the show on in the background in another room, but the sounds and lines were so strange and the laugh-track so loud and annoying, it caught my attention.

At first it seemed to make no sense and be scattered until I started recognizing its influences. The Absurdity of the plot, character types, and character interactions remind me The Adventures of Pete and Pete. The animated bits rely heavily on the visual gags of classic cartoons with an emphasis on Loony Tunes. Some of the pacing of the jokes and timing reminds me of Arrested Development, particularly the similarities of the main character to Michael Cera's brilliant character in that show.

There's a lot of Zucker/Abrams/Zucker (the guys who did Airplane! and The Naked Gun) background gags and archaic clichéd gags scattered throughout. Also like Arrested Development, there's never a "message" in any of the episodes, and characters never seem to learn any kind of lesson, instead maintaining their established character traits. All of this comes off surprisingly well. There should be more kids shows with this level of daredevil comedy.

It's not noticeably sophisticated, but some of the comedy is very dry and referential so it may go over the heads of some viewers, both kids and adults.

I think comedy nerds will like it and anyone who liked Pete and Pete should give it a chance. This show needs to ditch the turned-up-to-11 laugh track (My guess is that someone high-up at the network insisted on the laugh track because they were sweating the dry humor.)
