My favorite cartoon

"I'm 28 and I love this cartoon. It's corny and at times it's pretty stupid but the pure ridiculousness of it is what makes it so entertaining. I love the concept of 2x4 technology and having guns that shoot condiments, ice cream, gum balls etc... is classic! Not to mention the robots and other vehicles that are made of everyday things like carousels, cars, school lockers, and even a chimney! Codname KND puts a great spin on the action cartoons of the twenty first century. No blood, no guts - just plain fun and gags that can be appreciated by children of all ages. Also, the constant spoofs on classic movies; Robin Hood, Star Wars, Terminator, etc... is entertaining to adults who watch with their children (or by themselves!) I'm a lifelong lover of cartoons and although I really didn't like Codename KND the first few times I watched it I eventually came to love it and now watch it every chance I get. I've also converted a few of my adult cartoon loving friends into fans.
As for the animation style - it's true that the characters are drawn pretty amusingly. They look like pencils with apples stuck on them for heads, hands and feet but instead of complaining about the style take it for what it is. The entire cartoon is a spoof and the way it's drawn emphasizes that.
A comment on the accents of the characters; While reading through other reviews I noticed many complaints on how fake the British accent of Numbah One sounds. As stated in the previous paragraph - this is a spoof and how much more ridiculous would Numbah One sound if he had been voiced by someone with a real British accent? Could you seriously imagine Hugh Laurie reading the part? I believe that a real British accent would get even more complaints and besides, if you actually watched the cartoon you'd realize that neither of Numbah One's parents have an accent which would clue you in - he's just a kid trying to be cool as so many kids do. I've never heard a convincing accent come out of a child's mouth without extensive training. And to bash on Numbah Four's accent, calling it a bad British accent, is further proof that you don't watch the show. Numbah Four is Australian.
The characters all have distinct personalities and their individuality is part of what makes them so fun. Watching this cartoon takes me back to my own childhood, back when cartoons were only on Saturday morning and for an hour or two after school. Back before Nintendo and Xbox... When our imagination was all we had and we used it to the point of frying our brains. Today's youth can't always appreciate a cartoon like Codename KND because they can't necessarily relate. If you don't like it that's okay and feel free to trash it all you want, that's your right and I recognize your right. We all have different opinions and I love that amazon gives us the ability to share our opinions. Don't use these review spaces to put down the other reviewers though - that is immature and unnecessary. Who cares if someone misspells a word? I'm sure that I've misspelled quite a few words in my own review! Also, if someone writes a review that you don't agree with don't trash the person, just write your own review and leave it alone. Allow the consumer to make the choice don't try to sway them to your way of thinking. The purpose of these reviews is to share your opinion of the item in question with the intent of informing people of what it is they're considering purchasing.
I love Codename KND and I reccomend this cartoon to cartoon lovers everywhere!"

"I would just like to say that the 13 year old boy that reviewed this cartoon is no authority on this show. I personally feel that this is a pretty funny and original cartoon. There's a lot of really boring cartoons out there and I find this one quite entertaining. So, give it a try. If you like goofy cartoons you'll like this one.

"First off I wanted to say, I will not argue with any of your opinions in this review. if you hate the show, fine, you have the freedom to hate it. Although I strongly disagree with how you are looking at it. Oh, and by the way everyone, Numbuh 4 [[my love]] is AUSTRAILIAN not British. Thank you for the concern. Anyways, as one of the reviewers wrote...it isn't about people killing people that are the fears. Did we have to worry about that when we were 10? No! Kids fears are health, gross foods, girls, cooties [[as in one episode]], and much more. These are the issues that the Kids in the show are facing, just because we aren't facing them doesn't mean they aren't. We have to seperate reality from fantasy, people! I am a 15 year old girl who has just started watching KND about a year ago. I now have watched almost every episode because it has become such a great obsession. The voice talents are incredible, I mean come on, how many of you can pull an accent like #3 has if you are over age 40??? And Numbuh 4 is just the dreamiest kid in the world! I think it's great how all the characters have such different personalities instead of being all the same. It's a great adventure show, and I'm sure if you give it a chance you'll love it. Thank you :D"
