Adolescent emperor/designator Kuzco isn't allowed to rule or live in the palace until he graduates from Kuzco Academy. Being a naughty, lazy pupil, he's in danger of remaining an uneasy guest in lama-herdsman Pacha's humble family for long. He may even be deposed altogether, if evil pretender Yzma gets her way in endless schemes involving gentle giant Kronk and magical potions. Yet flippant Kuzco pursues puerile pleasures and fellow pupil Malina, his opposite as commoner model pupil, uninterested yet often his salvation, as is Kronk. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


J.P. Manoux stood in for David Spade as the voice of Kuzco for the TV Spin Off (as had previously been the case with Many Video Games and for Kuzco's cameo previously in House of Mouse (2001)). Most of the Other VAs from The Emperor's New Groove (2000) (only other exception being John Goodman as Pacha during season 1) reprised their roles of their Respsective Characters) See more »

The people who don't like it just don't get it.
27 June 2008 | by yamipegasusSee all my reviews

In some ways, The Emperor's New School is nothing like the movie it was based on. In other ways, it's almost identical. This seems to irritate some of the people who reviewed it. The thing is, this show isn't supposed to be as serious as the movie. In creating it, it's apparent that Disney's goal was nothing more than a bit of zany fun. To that extent, it succeeds.

The cast is excellent. JP Manoux may not sound a whole lot like David Spade, but he perfectly captures what they've done to the character. The rest of the cast is all either original characters, from the movie, or fairly good impersonations, so no problem there.

I'll be the first to admit that this show isn't for everybody. It's for people who can tell the difference between a running gag and simple repetition, and really appreciate that difference. It's for people who don't mind that it really doesn't take itself seriously, because at least it's INTENTIONALLY silly, as opposed to other things which try to be serious and come across as campy due to incompetent writing or acting. It's for people who like a break from the traditional protagonist: a character who isn't the smartest, the most likable, the best looking, or even really sympathetic, but you like him anyway.

All in all, this is a great show. If you don't like it, you simply don't understand it.
