Blast from the Past is truly a blast

"This video has pretty good plot, about a small caveboy, Flint, and his father, who get caught in "time wars" if you would call it that, and end up in the 25th century. It's a good-hearted show that's suitable for all ages, since when the small creatures they're after, called time shifters, are turned evil by Petra Fina, Flint doesn't fight them to make them good again. He makes them remember their good inside. And that sets a good example for children of all ages."
A very cute anime! ^_^

"I am one of those 'hard core anime fanatics' that likes to watch everything from Inuyasha to Trigun to Cardcaptor Sakura, but I still can't help but love this series! To me, it has a charm that other series that people tend to compare this to just don't have. I've never cared for Pokemon, but I love Flint!The only major failings that I feel these DVD's have is one: the fact that they don't include a subtitled version with an original Japanese audio track. That made it very unpopular with people such as myself, who tend to dislike american dubs. I believe that since this series aired on FOX kids, they should have included a subtitled version to make the series worth buying on DVD. After all, if you just wanted the dubbed version, you could have recorded it off TV.The other problem that I had was that I also don't care for the fact that they released so few episodes per disk.Overall, if you just want a series that will make you smile, roll your eyes, and laugh, this series is the one for you!"
Flint the Time Detective: Something Just Plain Silly

"Hello, my name is renamon_is, age 11, and for those of you who don't know, I'm here to review The 'Flint the Time Detective Blast From the Past (Vol. 1)' DVD. As you can guess from just looking at it, it's just 100% "Anything But Serious". For all the "Hard-Core" anime people out there, this is definitely NOT for you, at least not to buy. But, if you see it somewhere go ahead and rent it just for laughs- This show is SO stupid it's funny. It's about a young caveboy named (you guessed it) Flint, who lived with his Father chasing wild Dinosaurs and such. Then one day, the Evil Petrofina the Time thief and her henchmen, Dino and Mite came from the future and turned poor Flint and his father into fossils. And so, later in the 25th century, two kids dig up the fossilized versions of Flint and his dad (plus a good-guy time traveler named "get along") and take them home to defossilize them. Flint's dad turns out being stuck as a slab of rock though, but the professor figures out a compromise that you'll just hafta watch for yourself. Flint learns English, and so everyone decides that to raise a caveboy in modern times would be a good idea. Later Flint becomes a 'Time Detective', and their adventures lead to talking stone mallets, snake-birds that turn everything into gold, armored knights, queens of 7th century Japan & more. If you and your family are looking for something along the lines of "Pokemon" or "Digimon" then this is for you. Plus several voices from the cast of Digimon add to the hilarious fun of this adventure. I give it 5 stars and a "HOOM BA HOOM BA HOOM BA!!!!!""
