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!

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.

My 7 year old daughter said she likes this show. So I sit down and watch it.....BEST COMEDY ON TV AT THE MOMENT!!! A cross between Red Dwarf, Monty Python and X-Men...freakin' HILARIOUS!!! I rarely got to see the show on TV so I bought the DVD. Now my daughter and I can bond at normal hours on weekends.

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.

My almost five year old daughter loves this show. It's not too scary for her even though we have not seen much beyond cartoons. Sometimes she says the monsters are scary, but she really really likes it. I just wish we had started watching this BEFORE seeing the Aquabats live. She loved that too, but would have been even more excited otherwise. Oh well, next time.

Oh, and for those that don't know, this is basically the best of B movies, rubber monsters fighting the band, along with cartoons and fake commercials. Really fun to watch for both of us.

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! :)

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!
