Contest is closed and I'm pleased to announce that Kathy P. is the winner! Thank you to all who entered!
Balloonatiks, you say? What in the world are Balloonatiks? Well, let me tell you!
The Ballonatiks are five teens made out of rubbery, bouncy balloons who also have some incredible abilities! Kind of like teenage balloon superheroes! There's Flator, the school jock who can grow to massive sizes. Airbrain, the smartest kid in school, can use his giant head as a hot air balloon. There's Squeeker, the pretty and popular cheerleader who can paralyze the bad guys with her cheers. Don't forget Sparky who can stop bad guys in their tracks with lightning bolts, and Bouncer who is the class clown, can transform himself into any kind of ball and bounce to amazing heights.
I was sent a Balloonatiks: The Collector's Set DVD to review. As soon as it came my son grabbed it, stuck it in the DVD and was quickly engrossed! He watched the whole thing and enjoyed every minute of it. In fact, he has watched it several times since then. He laughed out loud at several parts (including the "whoopee cushion" type joke). Yes... it was 'that' kind of joke, especially loved by little boys!
I have to say that the animation was pretty good and the theme music is still stuck in my head. If you're familiar with the Ghostbusters theme song, this is similar (maybe because it's performed by Ray Parker Jr. who wrote the Ghostbusters theme song). Some of the voice talent includes Mark Hamill, and Billy West (if you watch Futurama you know Billy West.)
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cartoon and how much my son enjoyed it. Yes, there was one flatulance joke, but you almost had to have one with teenage balloon characters. We will watch for more Balloonatiks DVDs and add them to our collection.
Now here's the fun part, SSA Publications has generously offered a Balloonatiks DVD to one of my readers! So get ready for another giveaway!
