As of this reading there are two posted reviews for this new show. One of them was glowing and given 9 stars. The other person gave it 1 star and said it was the "worst show ever made" and compared it to cancer. It's impossible to respond to such hyperbole but I will just leave it at "this show might not be for everyone".
Fans of physical comedy will see a timeless style of comedy merged with modern settings and contemporary video game characters and graphics. I think of the Rabbids as a larger group of Three Stooges. They can be somewhat mean spirited towards each other but there is a child like playful quality to them that makes them endearing. Their silly antics also wouldn't work if they were speaking a legible language but we see them instead communicating with exaggerated and hilarious, yet understandable body language.
Fans of the video game Rayman may know more about the origins of the Rabbids but there is no back story given here. I am interested to know more about where they came from but honestly, it doesn't really matter. This is a hilarious show and each episode has had me laughing out loud. The only downside I might add would be that this may be geared more towards adults than the children who are the presumed target audience. I hope Nickelodeon doesn't try to alter and ruin the show the way they did Ren and Stimpy or push it out of the way despite a good following the way they did Invader Zim simply because the humor may be above that of their intended viewers. But the quality of humor is one that can be enjoyed on many levels and by numerous ages.
