While I'm eagerly anticipating Gumball's arrival, I admit that I have some...concerns regarding the show's style and elements. For one thing, I hope the collage of different art and animation styles actually flows together and doesn't come as a random patchwork mish-mashing (mind you, the stop-motion and puppetry kind of worked on Chowder, so maybe I should just give the artists the benefit of the doubt). Second, I really hope that Gumball doesn't fall into the assembly line pigeon hole of being just another "trip-tacular adventures of another pair of dude-pals" show. I have nothing against "bros" or shows about dude-duos, but it would be nice to get a touch of variety once in a while. But again, the press releases have described the show as a sort-of surreal domestic comedy, so hopefully characters like Annais and Gumball's mum will get some some interesting things to do more than once in a blue moon.
I don't know if Gumball will be a revolution of content, but from the looks of it, it definitely will be a revolution of form.
