    Whoa Ben's on the forums now!

    Good to see we're still noticed by the animation community. Anyway It looks pretty awesome so far dude, like what Huntsman said most the buzz about the recent clips have been mostly positive. We're counting down the days until the premiere in May.

    Wow, this is awesome. Glad to have you here, Ben!

    I've always been interested in this show, but I have even more faith knowing that the show creators are paying attention to our feedback. CN must have a lot of faith too for them to greenlit a second season.

    HOLY KANKRELATS.* A show creator is on the board?
    Pleased to meet you. I thought of The Amazing World of Gumball positively before when I saw the clip, but to see a show creator talking to the fans....I am even more inclined to tune in on its premiere.

    Anyway, to be more specific and analytical, I find it interesting how the mother works and the father stays at home. There's nothing wrong with being a stay-at-home-dad. I am also glad there is a fish character. Shows with animal characters typically (SpongeBob SquarePants and Fish Hooks are the exceptions) do not have fish characters. Good thing there is some variety here. I wonder where Darwin acquired shoes fit for fish fins...or, silly me, cartoon physics do not equal reality physics, maybe they simply appeared spontaneously. I wonder why Gumball has fangs when his mother does (or seems to) not...maybe he partly inherited his father's teeth. The mixed media is appealing too. Television series utilizing live action (backgrounds) have never looked so good. Strange learning the studio you (Mr. Bocquelet) is half of my name. (Dandelion Studios)

    If bananas (and many other things) can be sentient....then I have no idea how the characters can feel guiltless when eating fruit.

    Sorry I am incoherent and irrelevant. (I think I am...) I am simply so excited to speak with someone that makes the stuff I see on television. It is like talking to a divinity among us mortals.

    Cartoon Network has uploaded two more clips, one of which being the full version of the Hall of Game preview. I have high hopes for this series, but after watching these, my hopes have skyrocketed even further. It looks great. It’s one of the most adorable things that I have ever seen and it seems like it will be very funny. I particularly enjoyed the karate clip and I hope they upload more, but either way, I can’t wait for the premiere.

    Just got CNUK's May schedule. It's premiering over here on May 2nd at 10am, 2pm, 4.30pm and 8pm.

    Not sure if it's the same episode, or different ones.

    Ok, so I have a question, will this show be 11 minutes, or will the Monday line-up delete a show for this half-hour beauty?

    I have been told that the intent is to air it in half-hour batches, so Cartoon Network shouldn't split them up. I prefer it that way. Of course, it only gives us twenty weeks worth of new episodes instead of forty, but I never liked how Cartoon Network divided up premieres for Chowder and Flapjack. I just wish more people would actually participate in this thread. I really enjoyed the two new clips today. I thought more people would have had things to say about them.

    Oh, sorry, sorry. I just viewed them myself and have a couple questions from the little tidbit. Is Tina actually part of the school? Is that girl with the coconut head Gumball's love interest? I know most of these questions will be answered when the show premiers, but I just wanted to know.

    But, I did enjoy the humor of the show, especially when the dinosaur woke up, I was all like "OMFG, IT'S OVER NOW!!" Then the clip just ended, which made me sad, but excited for the show. And when Gumball kicked the wall and the picture fell on him, also, when he did a moonsault-into-faceplant. Lol

    I try to comment on things when I can, but really, there's not a lot say. OK, maybe a few things:

    I saw the new clips this afternoon, and found them cute. It's clear that Gumball is skewing toward a younger demographic than say, Regular Show or The Problem Solverz, and that's a good thing, since every animated comedy on CN can't or shouldn't skew towards the "dude-bro" crowd.

    Based on what seen and heard, it appears that all of the kid characters are going to be voiced by actual kids. I'm not against this particular practice, but it can be a double-edged sword: while getting actual children to voice child characters does add an air of authenticity, there are only so many Shirley Temples out there, plus hiring real kids comes back to bite shows should they go on for years, for the simple fact that children grow up. On the up side, however, the kids chosen here sound talented enough, so that shouldn't be a problem for now. It just seems weird hearing actual kid voices coming out of the mouths of thingies like bananas, peanuts and paper cutouts.

    The clips have also left me with a seemingly more positive opinion of the show's title character. At first I was worried that Gumball was going to be a blandly vanilla "everykid", or worse yet, Johnny Test obnoxious, but so far I'm actually finding him to be somewhat engaging. Another good thing; it's hard for me to get into a show when its' main character rubs me the wrong way.

    Finally, I really think that Cartoon Network should be doing more to promote this show. They've only started airing promos for it and it's usually the exact same spot over and over again, a far cry from the PR blitzkrieg that CN unleashed when it was promoting Adventure Time. I enjoyed the spot they made for Gumball himself; it would be nice if the other Watersons got spotlight promos as well, but given that the show focuses mainly on the kids, Gumball and Darwin in particular, I guess that's not going to be the case.

    Yes. She's the school bully. I will say, while I generally disdain bully characters on kids' shows, it is a unique take on the trope: rather than going with the standard "Gimme your lunch money!" archetype, this bully is a giant, non-anthropomorphic predatory monster. And, it's a female on top of that. As long as that idea isn't overdone, it should provide some laughs.

    Is that girl with the coconut head Gumball's love interest?
    She's a peanut, and again, yes. Her name's Penny. Admittedly, I wasn't too thrilled to learn that Gumball has a crush; I'd rather not have to endure a bunch of 'shipper' posts in the talkbacks, but hopefully, that aspect of the show won't be overdone. As with Tina, I hope this shtick is done in moderation.

    For those wanting to be in the know, there's a whole page of character descriptions on the web page for the show; Huntsman also posted them here a few pages back.
