Get ready for ADVENTURE!
19 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

With the dwindling quality of CN, this show is a gleaming new hope for EVERY cartoon around! Flapjack combines morbid humor, as Billy and Mandy did, with hilarious voice acting, strange animation, and funny and compelling stories make this show incredibly well made, and funny in it's different qualities.

Thurop Van Orman's voice acting is hilarious, and the other acting is funny. The voice acting is clear, and never fades out of it's talent.

The animation is very crisp, and looks like an 80's cartoon, which gives the show a classy feel.

The music feels as if it came straight out of a pirate movie, and makes the atmosphere feel so much more classical.

Overall, the show's morbid feel and classic animation makes the show unique among the last 3 remaining good CN cartoons with new episodes still airing (Flapjack, Chowder, and TDI/TDA), and with creative director J.C. Quintel working on the new "Regular Show", you can be sure we'll see TWO cartoons like this!
