4.0 out of 5 stars Cartoons Get Real, September 11, 2007
This review is from: Re-Animated (DVD)
Cartoon Network has done the near-impossible. They've made their very first live-action movie ! With a little animation mixed in.

This is the story of an average boy named Jimmy Roberts (played by Dominic Janes) living a not-so-average life with an astronaut mom, a counselor dad, and an alien sister. It gets even more not-so-average when he gets hit by a train and gets a brain transplant. This, however, is no ordinary brain, it was the brain of famous cartoonist, Milt Appleday (played by Fred Willard who also plays Boogey in "Billy and Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure" movie). Thanks to this new brain, Jimmy now has the unusual ability to see cartoon characters like Golly Gopher, Dolly Gopher, Crocco the Aligator, Tux the Penguin, and many more from the former cartoonist. At first his new cartoon friends that only he can see put him into a lot of trouble in his life including conspiracies with Milt's sinister son, Sonny Appleday (played by Matt Knudsen), but in the end, Jimmy prevails with his new toon friends and still has time for his "normal" life.

Bonus features in this DVD include a commentary by the creators behind the movie, a behind-the-scenes look of the movie, and a bonus short as seen in this movie.

I have nothing more to say about "Re-Animated", but I do know this: There's a brand-new series freely based on this movie called "Out Of Jimmy's Head", where the adventures of Jimmy and his ragtag cast of cartoons continue. Look for the all new live-action series in Cartoon Network's new "Fried Dynamite" block.
