If you're looking for a more concrete review, here goes: The Amazing World of Gumball is centred around the Watterson family, all of whom are drawn as fairly traditional anthropomorphic cartoon animals;- albeit with a very strong Japanese ultra-kawaii influence. Gumball himself is a cat, as is his mother, while his father and little sister are drawn as cartoon bunnies. The group is rounded out by Gumball's pet fish Darwin, who grew legs, left his tank, and joined the family.
However, while all the members of the Watterson family are unified under a common design language, once we get outside Gumball's immediate family, the show's true anarchic spirit is given free reign. Other cast members include a photorealistic piece of toast, a CGI Tyrannosaurus Rex named Tina, a handful of muppet-like creatures, and many other equally outrageous creations besides. I know one other reviewer has commented that he found all this "a bit hard to swallow".Read more ›
The other 11 episodes direct from season one include the following:
"The Third" - Gumball and Darwin look for a third new friend to join them.
"The End" - A solar eclipse is coming and Gumball and Darwin prepare for the end of the world.
"The Quest" - Tina Rex steals a doll from Anais. It's up to Gumball to get it back.
"The GI" - Gumball takes up karate lessons, but gets taunted by his peers in the process.
"The Picnic" - A school field trip to the Forest of Doom takes a turn for the worst when Gumball and Darwin get lost.
"The Wand" - Gumball finds a toy magic wand in a cereal box. Now he has to convince his father that it's really real.
"The Meddler" - Seeing that she doesn't find the time to spend with her son, Gumball is mortified that his mother is following him everywhere he goes.
The DVD special feature is "Meet the Wattersons" where you get an up-close look at Gumball and his family.
In conclusion, this is one world that is beyond strange, if not amazing as the title suggests. And don't forget to watch out for new episodes of Gumball and his friends on Cartoon Network.
So anyways the first ending of an episode i saw was when gumball did a cheer leading routine (cant recall episode name)
the fact that hes a guy doing this just made me laugh lol. he performed horribly in the routine. he lost a shoe (hitting some on in the head) sprang his an ankle, and had a horrible case of the wedgie with an extreme close up on the cameras end (no joke). lol.
After seeing that episode i got curious and set my DVR to record the show. all i can say is every episode has not failed to make me laugh uncontrollably. XD its actually a great show! i just goes to show i shouldn't judge a book my its cover :P i really hope these get out on to blu ray in seasons some day!
I also like the creative use of real world backgrounds. for example elmore junior high school that he goes to is a real school in San Francisco called Abraham Lincoln high. there use of several art styles is really cool too, mixing 3D CGI and standard 2D drawing was really creative :P
My only complaint is the naming of the episodes and how the usually end each show. you will notice most of the episodes and very simple names usually starting with the word "The" like the bet, the flakers, the words, etc. is seem sorta effortless on there part in my opinion.
The ending are very similar to the titles. a lot of these episodes will end abruptly and with an ending that makes you think theirs going to be more after the commercials.Read more ›
