My review of the show, which was made in October, was taken down from the site for some reason. Well, I will not be silenced any longer. It's my opinion and I'm entitled to have it. Anyways, on with the review:
As the year is coming to a close, and I have watched almost all of the cartoons that came out this year, I have finally found what I consider to be the worst kids cartoon of 2020: Mighty Express.
This show, made by the people behind Paw Patrol, is a shoddy attempt to compete with the popularity of Thomas the Tank Engine. As bad as the modern seasons of Thomas are, they at least have more nuance and depth than whatever the heck Mighty Express is. Heck, even Chuggington was better than this piece of excrement.
The show is very loud and frenetic with a lot of action, bright colors, and sound effects. The show is also very unrealistic. The thing that I love about classic Thomas is that it adhered to railway realism, seeing as the Reverend W. Awdry was a huge rail buff himself. But on this show, the characters have overly fancy tools and regularly jump off the rails. The characters are all bland and forgettable as well. I can't name a single trait about any of the characters other than they're cheerful and kind.
This show is so toyetic it hurts. Then again, it was made by a toy company. Please avoid this show, it's really bad. It openly talks down to children and has no educational value whatsoever. If you want a good train show, I recommend seasons 1-7 and seasons 17-21 of Thomas the Tank Engine. It's one of my favorite shows, but I can't say the same for the trainwreck (badumtsh) that is Mighty Express.
