A young Xiaolin monk named Omi with a giant yellow head leads a trio of other students to collect powerful items known as Shen Gong Wu while battling the evil Jack Spicer who is also after the artifacts
An episode was planned where Mung Daal (Dwight Schultz) would be framed for a crime, and would enlist some old friends to go on a mission to clear his name. The episode was meant to be a homage to Schultz's classic series The A-Team (1983), and would have brought in fellow cast members Dirk Benedict and Mr. T (the latter having established a career in voice acting). Unfortunately it had to be shelved. See more »
This show is definitely something different. It's like this; either you love it or you hate it. I haven't spoken to many people who just like it or think it's okay.
As for my friends and I, we think it's hilarious and unique. The animation style is like is nothing short of Seuss-esquire. If you watch a few episodes of the show, you'll see that there are no boundaries when it comes to character design. Chowder himself is some sort of little cat, Truffles is a little old lady, and I just can't tell what the heck Schnitzel is. Some characters are humanoid, some are animals, and sometimes even the food speaks! As for the voice acting, the kids are the highlight of the show. Nicky Jones (Chowder) is unbelievably talented for his age. I've never heard a child actor with as much individuality before! Sure, the gags can be a little crass, but it's a kid's show, a cartoon. Where else can you fit in a decent fart joke (or a pet fart) and get away with it? While some parts of the storyline seems a bit rushed at times, the overall outcome is absolutely worth watching.
