This is a good cartoon.
"Damn, Pendleton! What crack you smokin'?!" is the first reaction anyone watching this series should have. "Why ain't you smokin' more!?" is the second.
Although it's now produced by Breehn Burns, Will Mcrobb and Chris Viscardi, I can safely say Pendleton Ward has charmed me once again with his lively animation style (which is some quality shit right there) and nonsensical content. This time though, instead of bringing me on an acid trip through Ooo
, he takes me to the space-faring youth of Bravest Warriors.
Burns' humor is targeted towards more mature audiences which, admittedly, feels at home with Pendleton's animation style. It must be that I'm so used to the radar-dodgy moments in Adventure Time... Besides the iconic whimsy nonsense
of Ward, the dialog between characters is well-written, smoothly voiced, yet casual with a Jive Turkey
abundance fit for a king, or a PG 13
porno, if that makes any sense.
I'm sorry, I'm just thinking about that episode with locally grown Butter Lettuce, 9000% sexiness and a prolapsed anus
Behind the reckless Jive Turkey
and the wackiness, there is a semblance of a coherent plot. Well... I wouldn't say plot. It's more like an overarching development between the characters. Like Adventure Time, teen problems are casually, yet seamlessly, tied in together with a light-hearted, but crazy setting. It's kind of like a return to the simpler adventure times. Although I do see possibilities for something Darker And Edgier
, I'm not sure how that makes me feel...
The only thing that truly saddens me is the length of these episodes. On average, they round-out to about only six minutes. But, hey, that could be a good thing, for the people who have busy schedules and can only spare six minutes of their time per two weeks. Besides, IT'S FREE! So go youtube dat shiz right now.
