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 oblivious 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 and weren't officially released there until 2020 when the entire series was put on Amazon Prime.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Three guys, one girl on the hero team.
  • The Starscream: Headlock wants to take the boom cards for himself.
  • Techno Babble: Ricky insists on using highly elaborate names for when asking for a wrench.
  • Totally Radical: The title alone indicates this, several of the characters talk in slang, though Jubei is the worst offender as practically every other line of dialogue out of his mouth is some generic slang.
