Storyline

The King of the Jungle is back and he's swinging in a whole new direction! This is the George you always wanted but were afraid to bring up at the dinner table for fear that Grandpa would write you out of his will and Mother would call in an exorcist to expel the demon comedy seed deep within your twisted soul. George is still a big-hearted, Jungle King who throws himself into his job like any teenage boy would - with boundless enthusiasm and reckless abandon. One minute he's defending the jungle from an air assault by a patrol of WWII flying squirrels, the next, he's moving all the animals into mole tunnels during the yearly jungle fumigation. George may not understand civilization but no one understands his jungle the way he does. Like, who knew that shaving stripes off zebras turns them invisible? George! And who knew that pink flamingos are the toughest mobsters and the best ballroom dancers in the jungle? George! Oh sure, crazy plans lead George and his pals into ridiculous ...

Worse than I expected
14 July 2019 | by ultra-amySee all my reviews

I don't like this so-called "season 2" of George of the Jungle. This can barely be considered a new season, and feels more like a cartoon reboot gone horribly wrong using existing character/prop models from the 2007 cartoon (except for George's body). From what I've seen, the crew tried to make the story and such accurate to the original 60s cartoon, and I applaud them for that. However, there are a lot of problems that I want to address in this show. I watched all episodes, and it was nothing but a boring train ride. Here's why:

Switching Magnolia and Ursula's names is one thing, but shouldn't now-Magnolia be left out from this "season" so it could be more accurate to the 60s cartoon? Nope, they decided to keep her. In the 2007 version, the redhead was a fashion-loving, scatterbrained jungle girl who spoke with a Southern accent and was pretty calm to be honest, but here she is a ferocious feral beast who tries to kill and anyone on her place. Her mouth is also disgustingly-drawn and barely even pretty. The city girl also was turned into a science-obssessed freak whose only thing she craves is science. Dr. Scott's name is now Dr. Chicago and isn't the city girl's father here, the Witch Doctor also got his role as the father of the redhead scraped off.

The animation is an improvement from the previous cartoon, but there are a lot of errors. I don't like the idea from the crew that they had to hire new voice actors and people that didn't have any involvement with the 2007 cartoon either, and they seem to like to insert a lot of questionable and bizarre scenes that someone would easily take out of context. Cuspid, Dr. Chicago's henchman, was only put in the show for filler purposes, and it's quite baffling how George of the Jungle "season 2" doesn't explain why he turned from a dentist to an evil dentist determined to destroy the jungle. Many of the episode plots are also very weird and have a lot of over-the-top crudeness or just plain surreal moments, even for a kids' show.

Tl;dr George of the Jungle "season 2" is terrible, and once you've watched all of it then you would regret ever doing that.
