Mr Enter explaining the plot premise in his review of the show

Da Boom Crew was a very short-lived 2004 cartoon series created by Bruce Smith (The Proud Family) that aired on Kids' WB!. Fourteen episodes were made, but the show was such a ratings disaster that only four of them were aired in the United States; the last 10 aired (un-dubbed) in the United Kingdom.

The plot: Four children create a homemade video game, and a power surge throws them into the game. The show details their adventures in this parallel world. They embark on a quest to find their missing game cartridges and stop the villain Zorch from taking control of the cosmos.

This show contains examples of:

  • Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys: "Great Commander" Blurp is a coward who "scares easily" and he speaks with a French accent despite being from outer space.
  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: The group often struggle with enemies and puzzles. For a game they designed.
  • Cut Short: Big time. Only 4 out of 13 episodes were aired in the U.S., though it did have a full run in the U.K.
