Not as good as the original film
on March 10, 2015
Didn't really work for me. I loved the original live-action film but this cartoon just has too much look and feel of other elements like "King of the Hill" and even "Beevis and Butthead", but with voice actors from Napoleon Dynamite (not surprising Fox is behind this, as they seem to like to borrow from themselves a LOT with their animated series.) The stories and gags here just don't really have the same quirky fun like they did in the film, and instead they come across as having an overused Simpsons-feel. Sure, there were a couple laughs but ultimately this didn't work for me. Plus I got the feeling that the maturity level was kicked up just a notch, so this isn't really ideal for younger viewers.
