I am an admitted Cartoon addict, I watch pretty much everything that airs at least once. But this cartoon, THIS CARTOON has me excited!
I haven't seen a cartoon like this since Ed, Edd and Eddy. It is hilariously written with terrific content for little kids as well as adults. Tracy Tubera the creator has really mastered the art of keeping the parents laughing for things the kids don't get while the kids are laughing at things the parents don't get!
It's hip, funny, clever, sweet, strong loving messages, a great mix of cartoony wacky voices mixed with the shows stars from Rob Dyrdek's other TV shows so it actually balances out nicely.
While other shows have either too many wacky characters that i feel i need to be on crystal meth to follow OR too many live TV stars that there is no energy in the show, Wild Grinders is a wonderful balance and a fun ride.
It has a character for everyone to love or love to hate!
I just wish there was a better publicity machine behind it. Being hidden on Nicktoons, Nickelodeons digital network (a channel few get let alone watch) it may get lost in the shuffle. Another tough hurdle is Rob Dyrdek's own audience. They may not resonate with such a kid cartoon, since they are all the kind of kids trying to pretend they are older and cooler than they are.
While still others, not familiar with the amazing person Rob is, lump him into the 'reality star' category when he is so much more than that.
This might be his best endeavor yet, in entertainment that is! He already created a professional skateboarding league and builds skate parks for kids all around the nation.
But as far as TV goes. There isn't one cartoon on the air right now that satisfies the 11 minute comedy genre as well as Wild Grinders. This Cartoon is for the kids of the cul de sac, the ones looking for an adventure.
Take the time and check it out. You won't be sorry.
