Last Great Cartoon Show
25 January 2009 | by (Naperville, Illinois) – See all my reviews

"The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack" are just that. Marvelous.

This is probably the last great cartoon show on Cartoon Network outside of Chowder. For a man that has grown up watching cartoons, I have to say that the shows on Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon for that matter, have been falling off in quality lately. Flapjack excluded.

With the mixed media, the use of watercolor, the writing, the quirky stories, all of it is spectacular.

It's like we say in improvisation, you have to find the love. This show really does a good job at showing the love between mother and baby, mentor and protégé, and between friends.

Sure, Captain K'nuckles is a crass bad influence, he lies, he cheats, he steals, he's greedy, gluttonous, and whiney, but the lessons taught and learned are great.

Flapjack is such a sweet, kind, energetic kid, it's hard not to fall in love with this nautical-nonsense cartoon.
