Being the son of the world famous rock star, Rock Zilla, may sound wonderful for most people, but Willy has a different opinion. All he wants is a normal life and friends who accept him for himself and not because of his parents. When the Zilla family moves to Silent Springs in semi-retirement, Willy sees his chance. However, that normal life will not be easy to find with his wealthy family stirring things up in their own eccentric ways. Regardless, with the help of two newfound true friends, Willy is ready to deal with his unique challenges in a world that is remarkably new to him. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Love it!
5 May 2005 | by Korn_Tigress386See all my reviews

The first time I saw a preview of the cartoon, I was skeptical of it and thought it wouldn't be so interesting. But once I saw the first couple of episodes, I absolutely loved it and now I watch it every chance I get. It's just so funny and entertaining and you really can't miss that Rock Zilla takes after Gene Simmons. My favorite of the human characters is Rock Zilla, and of the animals, Mosh the pet lizard (or is he a giant iguana?). Well, I enjoy the cartoon and really look forward to future episodes as well as what wacky messes Rock Zilla will get into. I admire all the characters really, but Rock and Mosh are the best. I have to say that Rock's mother is also great. She's a sweet grandma on the outside, but a rocker woman on the inside!
