Why Cartoon Network? Why?
8 June 2013 | by BobbeColeSee all my reviews

Just as bad as Re-Animated. Changing Craig and Robin's actors was probably the only good thing (because they were a TAD better than the ones in reanimated). Let's think of ways it rips off of other shows. So the show focuses on a kid who was hit by a train (sort of a rip off of My Name is Earl (way funnier than this sh*t)). He gets a new brain, which is the brain of Milt Appleday (basically the whole idea is Walt Disney). Now I'm honestly not a Disney fan, but I'd take those over this. Anyway, a guy named Sonny who turns out to be Milt's son is trying to steal the brain with lame ideas that blow up in his face (Rip off of Looney Tunes?). The sister is an alien, adopted by an astronaut who is Jimmy's mother, and his father is the principal of his school. All of these feel like a ripoff of Family Guy (wacky dysfunctional family) and American Dad (alien relative). And last, and maybe least you have Jimmy, who's the kid that got a new brain after being hit by a train. He sees random cartoon characters who do nothing, but bounce around in his head and contribute nothing to him, but annoyance and bad advice. But, that's not the worst part. The fact that it aired on Cartoon Network AT ALL is bad. It's called Cartoon Network for a reason. It's not supposed to air live- action crap like Nickelodeon does. The laugh track wasn't a good thing it just made the show worse than it already was. So you'd think Cartoon Network would've learned after this, but they didn't. Now we've got the Annoying Orange to go with it. Man, I miss good old Cartoon Network that only aired cartoons and not live-action programming with acting that makes any TV made Syfy Channel or Steven Seagal movie look like gold. If I could vote this 0 I would, but it's not happening. Seriously, Jimmy's actor was better off on ER. I'm sure everyone's happy this was cancelled.
