Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Not since SpongeBob SquarePants has nautical nonsense made such waves. The Cartoon Network series The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack boasts striking stylized animation, a gallery of endearing and bizarre characters, and a marvelous crew of voice actors headed by a gravel-voiced Brian Doyle-Murray as Captain K'nuckles (the "k" is not silent), whose first (and only) mate is a wide-eyed moppet, Flapjack, who yearns for adventure. They live in the mouth of a blue whale, Bubbie, who acts as a kind of Orcan Jiminy Cricket. This DVD contains the series' first five episodes, a scant output that may disappoint the show's burgeoning cult following, but for newcomers, it's just enough to get their feet wet. Comparisons with SpongeBob are inevitable. Standing in for the Krusty Krab in this series is the Candy Barrel, where sweets are dispensed instead of booze, and the proprietor, Peppermint Larry, has a candy wife. Though not as sublimely silly and good-natured as SpongeBob, Flapjack has cross-generational appeal with silly stories and characters for kids and savvy writing to tickle adults. In the story "Several Leagues Under the Sea," a Captain Nemo-esque character powers his mechanical "alpha whale" with "the angst of 30 juvenile delinquents." There are also some lessons to be learned about friendship. Entertaining see-worthy extra features take viewers behind the scenes of the series to introduce creator Thurop Van Orman (who voices Flapjack), glimpse the cast at work behind the microphones, and follow the animation process. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Oh buoy! Set a course for misadventure! Take a trip to the bizarre sea village of Stormalong Harbor with a kooky kid named Flapjack and his very best friends - a crusty old pirate called Captain K'nuckles, and a wise-talking whale, Bubbie, whose mouth they call home sweet home.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad release of a terrific show November 29, 2009
Format:DVD
I know some people don't like these "reviews" where the person isn't actually reviewing the product, but this needs to be said. This release is weak, and it's what Warner Bros. seems to do best. This is my favorite new cartoon, and the episodes featured here are good. I don't own this release, but I don't have to to tell you it's a waste. This show deserves a season set, but instead we get this feeble, single disc release. There are a lot of good Cartoon Network shows that have not been released properly. Where is Dexter's Lab, Courage the Cowardly Dog, or Cow and Chicken? The only one that was given a good treatment was Powerpuff Girls. That came out as a complete series set, only after several single disc volumes and a first season set. Warner Bros. is the owner of a lot of good properties, which is lucky for them. It's unlucky for us, though, because they cannot seem to grasp the concept of giving the fans what they want. If Warner Bros. wants to be uptight about this kind of thing, I have a suggestion: Give Amazon permission to do the manufactured-on-demand DVD's, like what they've done with Rugrats and Doug. I'm sick of waiting for Warner Bros. to do the job right. It's tempting when a release like this Flapjack DVD comes out to just buy it. But instead, I know better. I'll wait for the season set, all the while knowing it probably will never come. Maybe there isn't enough demand for WB to put the time and effort into producing season sets. Fine. I understand they have a business to run. But there ARE people who would like to own such a set. So WB should let Amazon take over where they're too scared to. That way, the fans will get what they want, and Amazon and WB will make a profit. Everyone wins. But as long as WB keeps up this nonsense of single disc releases, the only one winning is them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Vol. One June 7, 2009
Format:DVD
Out of several cartoon shows that appear on Cartoon Network, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack stands out. It is very unique and entertaining, just like Chowder.

The main characters of the show is a young adventure seeking and candy loving boy named Flapjack, and his maple syrup drinking pirate buddy Captain K'nuckles. Also we have the always protective and loving whale, Bubbie, who raised Flapjack since he was an infant.

The series follows the trio as they partake on adventures on Stormalong Harbor and beyond. Always seeking a way to get to Candied Island, or at least getting some free candy from Peppermint Larry.

The show has a great deal of entertainment value, but some may disagree with me. But all of us are entitled to our own opinion. Personally, I really like the show and its unique characters. The animation is different, plus like Chowder, it utilizes stop-motion animation!

Below is a list of episodes and special features that are included on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Volume One.

1. Several Leagues Under The Sea/Cammie Island
2. Several Leagues Above The Sea/That's A Wrap
3. Lookin' For Love In All The Wrong Barrels/Beard Buddies
4. Skooled/Snarked
5. Capatain and ToeNeil (never seen it before, possibly wrong one listed or it may be a brand new never before seen episode)

Special Features
- Adventures in Voice Acting Featurette
- Adventures in Animation Featurette
- Misadventures in Song Featurette
- Meet Thurop! Featurette

My advice, if your a fan of the series or if you actually like it, buy it. It's a good series with some interesting characters and unique animation. Pre-order your copy and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Marvelous July 29, 2009
Format:DVD
My boyfriend and I watch the Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack every chance I get. We are 28 and 27 years old. Flapjack is hilarious and always puts us in a great mood. It's good, clean, silly fun...for the young AND the old! The puns are chuckle-worthy and the storylines, as crazy as they may be, leave you wanting more. If I were to compare Flapjack to any other cartoon, I would have to say it reminds me of the ever legendary Ren & Stimpy and/or Spongebob Squarepants. Whether you're in the mood for a haircut or surgery, or in desperate need for a maple syrup fix, Flapjack is the show to watch. I have been waiting for this DVD to come out for what seems like FOREVER. I plan on buying it as soon as it's released. May the spine-tickling entertainment of Flapjack live on for eternities to come!

P.S. Remember...Everything's comatose roses. ... Hahahahahahaa

2.0 out of 5 stars Great, wonderful cartoon, horrible DVD pack April 6, 2011
Format:DVD
Let me start by stating I abosolutely love this show. Watched it with my kids who love the show. Har-Har-Tharsdays! Even my wife took a liking to the characters. It is a fantastic cartoon, with an incredible art style. Doctor Barber, Lady Nicklebottom (m'lady), Punsy McHale, and of course World Famous Comedian...Lolly Poopdeck, to name a few characters. "Candy island, makes me smilin', dance and chew bubblegum doo doo, well I brush my teeth on a jelly bean reef, grab a peppermint leaf, sip the licorice dew!" is a requested bed time song from my kids.

However, this is an incredibly weak offering, and I just cannot bring myself to give it the 5 stars the show deserves because this DVD product is horrible. And I just recently found out the show was pulled...how disappointing, especially after only two seasons. On top of that, I moved and changed cable providers, so lost all those episodes I had on the DVR. So I look to Amazon to see if there is a DVD collection, but find this. Pathetic. Seriously? 4-5 episodes?? Not even worthy of the expired candy barrel. Whoever marketed this DVD is in need of some serious "surrrrgery," because this DVD set requires a serious dose of maple syrup, and in its current state should be fed to Eight-Armed Willy or sent west to the edge of the world. I dont even care about special features (although I would welcome them), I just want both complete seasons, on maybe TWO DVDs (which I would buy immediately!), not this 4-5 episodes-a-pop foolishness. Thank God for Finn and Jake, we can still get our "ADVENTURE!!!" fix.

Flapjack and the characters are goofy and odd, but they all have a humanity about them, that gives the story lines depth for a cartoon. Fun to watch with the kids.
