Cute Little Series

Krypto proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Paul Dini's brilliance cannot be contained even by the strict rules slapped upon writing children's programming. Fans of his previous DC comics character works (Batman & Superman the Animated Series, Justice League, etc.) need to realize that Krypto caters to children between the ages of 4 and 8. And while it is certainly a step toward simplicity when compared to his prior works, the entire series really isn't far off from what Hanna Barbara was putting out all though the 1970s and 80s.

Especially noteworthy is the 2 part debut episode which not only reveals Krypto's origins, but sets up the rest of the series very effectively. Expect a cameo from Superman himself (and Lex Luthor in later episodes).

The animation is clean and colorful with its own unique look to it and the voice work is quite impressive. My only compliant about this set is that $12 is a bit steep for how little is actually contained on the DVD. Five 12-minute episodes can be breezed through in a single sitting. While I realize that children have shorter attention spans and probably appreciate the slim episode running times, Warner would have been wise to throw at least ten episodes on this disc so parents feel they got their money's worth out of it.
