Another weird world where seemingly unrelated objects - bunnies, cats, a goldfish, a T-rex and a piece of toast - form a family for comic effect. It is a silly exercise that is mostly entertaining but certainly not on par with Spongebob or Adventure Time. The set is full of some of the first seasons most popular episodes and serves as a good intro to the series -but as usual, one is left to wonder - why not just release the whole first season?
Get a clue as Cartoon Network prepares to release the second DVD from its award-winning animated series, The Amazing World of Gumball “The Mystery.” The DVD includes 12 hilarious episodes from season one – including the titular episode “The Mystery” – and a character gallery, all ready to have the entire family laughing. The feature episode follows Gumball as he sets out to solve the biggest mystery of his life – who stuffed Principle Brown into his locker? In this mystery everyone’s a suspect, and the outcome is something that can only happen in The Amazing World of Gumball.
Created by Ben Bocquelet and directed by Mic Graves, The Amazing World of Gumball is the first
UK-produced, full-length animated series out of Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe. Fueled by a combination of 2D and 3D animation in a live-action setting, the comedy series has garnered an impressive roster of awards including BAFTA, Annecy and ASIFA Hollywood Annie awards among others. Additionally, it has earned excellent critical acclaim from a variety of media sources, including Animation Magazine, which lauded it as “whimsical, funny and cleverly animated."
