Da Boom Crew was a very short-lived 2004 cartoon series created by Bruce Smith (The Proud Family) that aired on Kids' WB!. Thirteen episodes were made, but the show was such a ratings disaster that only four of them were aired in the United States; the last nine aired (un-dubbed) in the United Kingdom. The entire series is streaming on Tubi TV and Amazon Prime with the Ameba addon.

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:

  • Plot Hole: The cast are completely unfamiliar with a videogame they made.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: Half of all main characters.
  • Short-Runner: The show was introduced in September 2004 and cancelled outright in early October of the same year. Heck, two thirds of the first season never even aired in North America.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Three guys, one girl on the hero team.
  • The Starscream: Headlock wants to take the boom cards for himself.
  • Techno Babble: One of the more unfortunate examples of all the slang. The nerdy girl insists on using highly elaborate names for when asking for a wrench.
  • Totally Radical: If the title didn't tip you off to this, there's a lot of it in the show. There's so much it's almost like the writers thought slang = character development.


How well does it match the trope?
