"Super Hero Squad" Vol 4: This DVD, This Season Finale!

by Ed Liuon May 12, 2011
With volume 4, Shout! Factory wraps up season 1 of The Super Hero Squad Show, and if the results don’t quite hit the loopy heights of the previous volume, it’s only because the show has found a comfortable, high-quality groove that mixes up standard super heroics with madcap slapstick. This also means that when surprises […]

"Dora the Explorer: It's Haircut Day!": Needs Trimming

by Maxie Zeuson May 11, 2011
Every time Nickelodeon sends us a copy of its latest Dora the Explorer DVD, we here at toonzone play a little game of “Hot Potato” to see who can go without getting stuck with the job of reviewing it. I thought I’d recently pulled off a nifty escape plan—I moved to the other side of […]

"The Amazing World of Gumball": Not as Amazing as Advertised

by Maxie Zeuson May 6, 2011
The Amazing World of Gumball, the latest series from Cartoon Network, at least has an interesting background: it employs and repurposes characters that were originally created for commercial work before being ultimately sidelined. Sadly, the series would make a better first impression if it didn’t feel like it was employing recycled gags, characterizations, and sitcom […]

Future Spotlight: Kung Fu Panda: Legends Of Awesomeness

by The Huntsmanon May 5, 2011
People tend to have mixed feelings when it comes to making an animated series based on a movie.  I can’t say that I blame them, as so much effort is put into the creation of a movie, in establishing its characters and the world in which they inhabit, that it almost feels sacrilegious to then […]

"Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" Vol. 2: A-Team Brings Their A-Game

by Ed Liuon May 5, 2011
I was greatly impressed at the scale and the skill of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes after watching the first episode at New York Comic Con last year and catching all the “micro-episode” lead-ins online. It was a show that I felt was worthy of Marvel’s flagship superhero team, creating accessible versions of some of the […]
