A Silly Animated Show

A dad, a 17 year old, and a 12 year got a lot of laughs out of this show. No it's not high animation, it's not some fantastic film, it's just silly. This one is in the same vein as Kronk - The Emperor's New Clothes. The voices are rather good and well chosen. You have to check reality at the door, nothing in this is plausible. Just enjoy the ride. It's funny. And the number of laughs is why I rated Space Chimps so high.

Patrick Warburton is really a great choice for Titan the big dumb astronaut. Patrick's voice is recognizable. Kristin Chenoweth (West Wing and Pushing Dasies) is wonderfully annoying as a little glow head Killowatt. Andy Samberg (Current Saturday Night Live, the kid with the big curly hair) as the lead chimp is a well chosen voice. Stanley Tucci appears as a stupid senator. Keenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live) makes a cameo as the circus ringleader. And Jeff Daniels does a great job as the evil Zartog or Zartig.

The DVD is rated G. There is way more offensive and complex cartoons on daytime television. Oh yeah, some young children might miss the satire, or references to the space program and certain movies - but there's a ton of adults that miss that too. There's more than enough slapstick here to entertain most everyone. We all enjoyed this one a bunch.
