Storyline

Welcome to Elmore. This quaint little suburb isn't quite what it seems, as in Elmore, just about everything has the ability to come to life. The Amazing World of Gumball follows the misadventures of Gumball, a twelve-year-old cat. With the help of his best friend Darwin, his former pet goldfish that grew legs and joined the family, he gets into all sorts of antics. He is joined by his sister, Anais, a four-year-old bunny with heightened intelligence. His father, Richard, and his mother, Nicole, are there to provide him support as well. Written by Juan Carlos Morales

Alternate Versions

The show has been edited 5 times in the U.S., principally for avoid a TV-PG re-rating:
  • In the first airing of "The Remote", the part where Nicole (the mom) drinks coffee fast and rushing to the TV from the dining room is cut. This part was later put back in reruns.
  • In "The Skull", there's a scene that was cut where Gumball, Darwin, and Clayton use shock collar therapy to stop them lying. However, most, but not all of the scene was included in a clip on Cartoon Network's website.
  • In "The Storm", the word "bimbo" mentioned by Gumball around the middle of the episode, is replaced with "coward". However, the word "bimbo" is seen in the closed captions if they're on.
  • In "The Crew", the final scene where the Doughnut Sheriff tasers Marvin was cut in the TV broadcast.
  • In "The Nuisance", the mentioning of "bath salts" was replaced with "soap suds" in reruns.
  • Also, in some episodes like "The Goons" the title card was removed, and in reruns of some episodes the full opening can be seen.

So Far It's Pretty Good
5 February 2012 | by FilmFreak94See all my reviews

The Amazing World of Gumball is one of those shows I looked at and said, "How can anyone like that?" But like other shows on Cartoon Network it surprised me to see it was actually a well written show.

The show takes place in the fictional city of Elmore inhabited by talking animals, animate objects, tyrannosaur, talking peanuts, and other weird things you wouldn't even expect to live together. The show follows the Watterson family, mainly Gumball and his adopted brother Darwin, and their misadventures.

You got Richard, a lazy stay at home dad with good intentions but small intellect. Nicole who is a typical workaholic mom with a short fuse but deeply loves her family. Gumball and Darwin are your average pre-teen boys who have all sorts of weird interests and misconceptions on girls, adults and life in general. And their sister Anais who is a child prodigy at four years old. Together they get into all sorts of unbelievable situations around their house, school, or city in general.

What I find really appealing about this show are the characters. Each character has a different animation style. One character can be traditionally animated but another can be done in CGI. And another could be a puppet. And another could be an 8-bit video game character. They all have individual character traits and it's really interesting to see all these animation styles really blend together.

The family is pretty close to real life too. I can remember as a kid actually getting into some of the fads Gumball and Darwin do.

This show is still pretty new and obviously has a lot more to offer, but from what I've seen it's worth watching a few episodes. I don't really see anything that bad for younger kids like I do in shows like Regular Show and the adult humor is subtle enough for kids to not know what they're missing. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this unique style in the future.

So far I give The Amazing World of Gumball an 8.5
