MONSTERS VS ALIENS CLONING AROUND DVD (2013)
SYNOPSIS: Get ready for a world of hilarious monster mischief and alien antics in this all-new animated TV series inspired by DreamWorks Animation's ginormous hit movie Monsters vs. Aliens. Join team leader Susan, muscle-bound Link, ingenious Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D., and B.O.B., the gelatinous blob, as the residents of the government containment area embark on fun-filled adventures under the not-too-watchful eye of General Monger!
Monsters Vs Aliens or MVA for short is the third DreamWorks property to be developed into a television series after The Penguins of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness.
Originally aired on the Nickelodeon channel, this DVD contains the first eight episodes from the debut season with each segment running approximately 22 minutes. The four main characters, Ginormica, Dr. Cockroach, B.O.B. and the Missing Link from the feature movie returns for more insane adventures together with two newcomers, Coverton and Sqweep, a cute pink alien.
Of course, the paychecks of the original voiceover cast Reese Witherspoon and Seth are obviously too expensive to be hire for the series but no worries they are replaced by a bunch of equally enthusiastic voice actors. The humour is targeted at the younger audience but parents shouldn’t have any problem enjoying the silly antics as well. The always funny and brainless jelly B.O.B. might just earned a new group of fans.
A feature that contains music videos from four DreamWorks titles.
The animation details while not as good as the movie is serviceable enough for the little screen. Sound effects which are reproduced in 5.1 adds to the viewing experience.
