Many of the cartoon shows based off videogames tend to suck (The Legend of Zelda and Captain N: The Game Master are two that come to mind), but Earthworm Jim was one of the few exceptions. It had solid visuals that matched the spirit of the iconic 16-bit game, had jokes that are still funny as an adult, and features a good deal of talented voice actors like Dan Castellaneta, Charlie Adler, Kath Soucie, and Jim Cummings.
It's a shame that with so many shitty nostalgic cartoons based off videogames that are released on DVD, Earthworm Jim has yet to get a DVD release in North America (though the Australians released the show on DVD recently). Who knows, maybe an online petition might motivate Universal to release this show on DVD.
