TV Show Review: The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack

The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack is without a doubt one of the best animated television series  ever created. Although it only lasted a mere three seasons, it was one of the funniest shows on TV during that time. The show follows the misadventures of a young boy named Flapjack, who was raised inside a talking whale named Bubbie, and Captain K'nuckles as they set sail in search of the magical Candied Island, filled with lollipop trees and lemonade seas.

The show is wonderful for both kids and adults alike. It is funny, original, random and sometimes dark.and creepy. The characters are all so unique and interesting that it is nearly impossible not to fall in love with them. Another very unique aspect to this show is its beautiful animation. It's amazing how eye popping the characters look with the combination of the gloomy and dingy backgrounds. It helps to give the show a nice suitable feel to it that is very pleasing to look at.

It's a shame that Cartoon Network cut ties with the show after its third season, because the quality of animation on television nowadays has not been very good and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack was one of the few shows that we could count on for pure excellence. If you have not seen this show, I strongly suggest checking it out if you ever get the chance. On April 20, 2012, the series returned to Cartoon Network to show re-runs on the revived block, Cartoon Planet.

Overall Rating: 5/5
