Trivia

The show lasted only 1 Season due to the network's willing to get back the more "Nickish Shows", which also resulted in putting The Penguins of Madagascar (2008) and Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness (2011) on hiatus as they were both in their 3rd and Final Seasons, which wrapped up in Late 2015 and Mid 2016 respectively. Future shows based on Dreamworks Animation films would later go on to show on other channels instead. See more »

It's Not THAT Bad
15 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

...though it took a friend who knew I'd enjoyed the source film to point this series out to me.

Agreed, the inner Susan could be FAR better explored though the pilot episode does kinda-sorta explain her now-willfully variable ginormity.

But that's the price one pays for "media compression," especially when hyperkinetic slapstick is emphasized within mere minutes if not seconds per episode. It's supposed to be fun, and the slapstick is at times inspired, while every so often genuine wit still manages to surface (for example, an interesting take on educational television).

The creative team also likely felt it had to compensate for characterization by simply adding more aliens and giving the management and staff of Area Fifty-something more of a role. Fair enough, for we get more episodes for the effort.

The animation is good and the voice acting across the board is very good. But I need single out the actor who voices the alien Sta'abi and manages to turn the character's name into a singsong battle-cry with a Slavic dialect that just cracks me up each and every time.
