I liked the holiday special. Decent animation and art style. Penn wasn't as quite annoying as I thought he'll be, though we're only in one episode so far, so that could change. I'll probably need to catch more episodes of Penn Zero: Part Time Hero before I made my judgment.
Goodbye The Hub, Hello Boomerang!
I think I saw a cartoon with this concept. It was about a guy who substitutes for heros when they get sick or hurt.
This reminds me of this show from the short lived Fox Family, I think it was called Walter Mellon(?). Except with less full on movie parodies and a smedge of Quantum Leap and Exiles for flavor.
Enjoyed the episode and liked how it poked fun at all things Xmas even using the typical songs found in said specials to help with their escape.
The art style is certainly creative and the only problem I could find with the show was the kids uncle(seriously that just looks creepy). Certainly will give the show a proper go once it fully airs, plus I want to find out what exactly separates a Part-time Villian from a standard one(the main Villian seems evil enough).
Also probably one of the best answering machine messages I've ever seen.

I watched the holiday special on demand and I must say, it's not too bad. The animation is pretty different and the premise kinda reminds me of Timesplitters 2 (what with the characters taking on a different appearance as they enter different dimensions). I'll be keeping my eye on this.

Nick Evans and Ultra8 are right, this is similar to Walter Melon! I can't believe I never noticed.
Heh, Walter Melon had to sub for Power Rangers expies in an episode. I wonder if Penn Zero will do something similar.
