Amazon.com

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

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.

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.

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.

This show has to be one of the most entertaining and repeat watchers in a long time. Every episode seems to be better than the next until you go back again and watch the previous episodes and find another clever gem of side splitting fun. I wish Amazon would pick up the Aquabats and make another season of episodes and this time a full 22/23.

We love the Aquabats! If your kid was a fan of Yo Gabba Gabba, this is pretty much a natural progression for them. It's a show that we actually enjoy as parents because it spoofs pop culture a bit. So entertaining!

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.

I've been a fan of theirs long before the TV show. If you love the old Sci Fi monster shows with actor in rubber monster suits and the Scooby-Doo cartoons, you'll love this show. Besides fun and music from the band themselves, the show also has cool guest appearances from the likes of Tony Hawk, "Weird Al" Yankovic, and Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo. Also, throw in a bonus cartoon during each episode: some have their cute bat mascot, others have the Aquabats' serial adventures illustrated anime style.
This show is on the Hub family network, and when I saw the Aquabats live in my town, there were plenty of kids there, from three year old kids to teenagers. Their live show also had plenty of songs from the TV show, so I really wanted to get this volume, and also not have to pay the mark-up at their merchandise table for it.
