    Gumball almost sound like someone that people can relate to, I like that in a character. His sister sound hilarious, along with his best friend.

    Definitely looks...interesting.

    I'm still a little weary after Foster's, Chowder and Flapjack. All good cartoons, mind you, but I'm a little bit worried the formula of "imaginative premise wasted on a cast of jerks" will end up leaking into both this and Adventure Time.

    Kwesi Boakye will be providing Darwin's voice. I’ve never heard of the kid, but it does prove what one of the writers told me: the series is going to use U.S. talent for the voice work despite being developed in Europe.

    According to one of the main writers for the series, all twenty episodes (forty segments) have been written and the series should premiere early next year. I have higher hopes for this series than I ever had for Hero: 108, but the network's poor treatment of that series does have me somewhat concerned.

    One thing Gumball has over Hero: 108 is that it's being produced by Cartoon Network themselves and not a third party. I just hope it actually comes here at all, though. As I recall, Robotboy and Cramp Twins were the only CN Europe originals to come over stateside.

    I was told by one of the main writers, back when I first learned about the series, that it was being developed with the states in mind and that they planned on it airing over here. That’s why it’s using U.S. voice talent. I guess one executive or another figured kids wouldn’t like hearing European accents.

    ^ If that's the case, I definitely think that CN will give it a chance. They wouldn't put so much behind making this show if they were going to shaft it right away. They would at least give it some sort of chance before doing so.

    Looks okay so far, the surrealism is deffenitly there. Now that I think about it most if not all of CN's projects have been surreal.... not that I'm complaining!:anime:

    I can appreciate surrealism when it's executed well, and this series would be a nice change of pace form the aeon flux of action shows that Cartoon Network has been getting. If The Amazing World of Gumball comes to the U.S., I'll check it out.
