Set as a prequel to the two Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movies, the series focuses on the adventures of Flint Lockwood and Sam Sparks as best friends in high school. While Flint wants to be a successful inventor, Sam longs for fame as a reporter.
In the show, Earl Devereaux is voiced by Clé Bennet, who is the third different actor to take on the role. In the first Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs movie, Earl is voiced by Mr. T, while in the second movie Terry Crews brings the character to life. See more »
It's common today to see Hollywood remake movies and TV shows be remade as well. One of those remade shows was Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs, a show based on the 2009 film, which I praised in the past. The show has all the familiar characters from the films, Flint, Sam, Steve, and so on. Where the show starts to fall apart though is that the humor in this show barely has any humor in it and most of the jokes in this show are poorly done or are bad puns. The artwork and animation while not terrible, could have been done so much better, it can get choppy from time to time, and the main color this show has is grey, I know this is a ghost town, but why is 90% of the show in grey? It makes it look dead. The characters are barely funny and the humor they actually provide that is funny is very rare and its so boring. The only characters who stayed the same were Steve and Tim. There was plenty of potential for this show, but C.W.AC.O.M. proves that like most spin-offs, the original is way better. Go watch the original films, It's WAY better than this junk. If you do see this show on TV, make like Flint's food raining invention and fly away from this terrible remake of a classic.
