The debut season of the irreverent and entertaining Aquabats! Super Show! presents the veteran Southern California rock-and-ska band as a new, potent, and wildly creative force in children's entertainment. The live-action Super Show! neatly transposes the elaborate and absurd mythology that swirled around the Aquabats' albums and live shows--filled with costumed superheroes and outrageous giant monsters--to a live-action series format that, like Yo Gabba Gabba! (co-created by Aquabats frontman Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz, who perform similar duties here), celebrates kid-TV culture while also poking good-natured fun at its tropes. Here, the Super Show blends an old-fashioned superhero series, with Jacobs and his bandmates as spandex-clad, singing crime fighters in both live-action and anime-style cartoon forms, with elements of tokusatsu in its horde of absurd villains and creatures, Banana Splits/Monkees-style pop music interludes, and a Sesame Street-like array of interstitial segments featuring the band's mascot, Lil' Bat, and commercials for bizarro products like anti-Mummy Spray and the hideous Scruffy Scruff toy. The result is frantic and funny enough to captivate most imaginative young viewers while also keeping their parents entertained with the barrage of retro-references and genuinely catchy tunes, as well as guest appearances by famous grownups like Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Lou Diamond Phillips, Paul Scheer (NTSF:SD:SVU::), the apparently immortal Rip Taylor, and "Weird Al" Yankovic. The double-disc season-one set includes all 13 episodes of the first season, as well as commentary by all five Aquabats (as their superhero identities) on five episodes and the series' pilot, which offers a very different format than the eventual series (alternate theme song, concert framing device, and more animation). An eight-minute-plus collection of "behind the scenes" clips featuring the Aquabats in various silly scenarios and a blooper reel should provide additional laughs for newly minted and longtime Aquacadets alike. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Now my son loves the Aquabats as much as I do! January 12, 2013
Format:DVD
What a great show from the creator of Yo Gabba Gabba! I was a big Aquabats fan (mhrhrmumble) years ago and now I can share their zaniness with my 6 year-old! He loves the characters, MC Bat Commander is his favorite because he thinks the blacked-out tooth and mustache are hilarious. I'm a Jimmy the Robot man myself, who doesn't love a compassionate robot? He loves the cartoon introductions, and I do too because they harken back to the "Hey, look we found a cartoon!" transitions of the kid's shows from my youth.

But the biggest draw of the show is the Aquabats' madcap adventures! They are full of action, comedy, and suspense with a little wink to reassure the kids that it's not supposed to be full-on scary. They throw in schlocky sci-fi monsters, Scooby-gang mysteries, old beach movies, and old west showdowns between robots! It is one of the most entertaining shows of any kind I've ever seen. In season 2 they have to team up with Man or Astroman! and then my my son will be fully indoctrinated in fun surf-punk!

5.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere in a random living room.. January 12, 2013
Format:DVD
I love everything about this show. The 80s and 90s references are great. The "commercials" are spot on, and they always find a clever way to slip in clips of an ongoing cartoon series. I don't want to give anything major away, but when "The Dude" is introduced, it is the best thing. THE best thing. Possibly ever. I don't have kids right now, but suffice to say that I will be introducing this to my neese and cousins.

5.0 out of 5 stars 13 Episodes Of Serious Awesomeness! March 18, 2013
Format:DVD
Hey, Homies! Why are you reading this review?! Stop what you're doing and order this DVD!

Well, since you are reading, I'll tell you all you need to know about "The Aquabats! Super Show!" This band of five heroes, dedicated to truth, justice, and saving the world from boredom, are the stars of the greatest TV show to come along since... ever!! From mummies, to giant ants, to Floating Eyes, to crazy-robot-faced mavericks, and everything in between, these guys whoop major butt, for reals! The Aquabats put the "Super" back in "Heroes"! With the help of such luminaries as Rip Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips, Samm Levine, and "Weird Al" Yankovic, among many others, our brave band of musical "Clown-Bag" kickers - The MC Bat Commander, "Crash" McLarson, Jimmy The Robot, Ricky Fitness, and EagleBones Falconhawk - restore order, burritos, doughnuts, and burgers - delicious, delicious burgers - to the world. Oh, yeah... I almost forgot; they also happen to be THE GREATEST BAND IN ALL OF SPACE-TIME!!!!! Listen to the opening song, and you'll know what I mean!

Kids of all ages, from -8 to 800, will love the zany antics of those zippy, zippy dudes, The Aquabats! And that's that.

5.0 out of 5 stars 17-month old son LOVES Aquabats! February 15, 2013
Format:DVD
We discovered Aquabats through watching Yo Gabba Gabba! My son absolutely loves them, and the Aquabats Super Show is wonderful! We watch about 4-5 episodes a day as his wake-up & bedtime routine through Netflix. Can't wait to buy the series on our Kindle so he can watch it on trips! Crossing our fingers for a season 2! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars This show's humor is right up my alley! January 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm not one for writing many reviews, but this show definitely deserves one. At first glance, it's a "stupid" kid's show. It features cartoon segments, musical interludes, wacky humor, and a fast-paced colorful plot. However, there is a lot adults can enjoy as well. This show really touches on what worked in shows from eras gone by, and as stated in many interviews with the Aquabats, this show is like a mixture of 60's Batman series meets the The Monkees, among other shows and pop culture references. But just when you think they're just goofy and wacky, they pull some pretty cool and heavy plot twists into play.
Sure, it's campy, but it's intentionally so. The timing, the writing/lines, the delivery, the music, and the band themselves all work so well together. You can tell they're having a blast while making this show, and they all gel so well together. Because of this show, I have also become an avid fan of their music, and throughout the years you can tell they still have that same sense of doing what they do best because they know it works and they enjoy it, not caring what others might think and just having fun. That sense of fun just makes the show that much better; for me it's really refreshing to see a show/band who doesn't think only of money and taking themselves too seriously.
I bought this series on iTunes, but am thrilled it's finally being released on DVD and am gladly putting out the money for it again, especially for any extras and commentary they might add!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trash! January 10, 2013
Format:DVD
Such a despicable documentary of the bland hijinks of travelling, strangely-garbed "musicians" who double as strangely-garbed "super heroes". And by that, I mean they do nothing but travel around in their trashy van and beat things up! And of course, they cannot resist inserting their "music" into every episode - some sort of new-wave rock with goofy lyrics. I weep for the poor souls whose ears had to endure torture such as "Burger Rain!" and "Doing Science!". Not to mention that they fill their scripts with a brand of "humor" that I cannot bear to describe here - and yet they still struggle to fill an entire timeslot! Pitifully, they resort to padding out their episodes with randomly inserted cartoon segments will easily confuse pathetic human viewers with sudden shifts in setting and its ongoing subplot. I must also mention how much the pander to fans of obscure pop-culture, polluting their episodes with appearances by Weird Al Yankovic, Mega64, Rip Taylor, and more.

I rate it five out of five stars, because on a scale of how much I detest those nasty, do-gooder Aquabats, it would rank five out of five. I believe that is how this system works.
