All Rise...

Judge David Johnson's brain freezes are more enjoyable than his brain farts.

Editor's Note

Our review of Fanboy And Chum Chum, published May 29th, 2011, is also available.

The Charge

Michelle Obama does not approve.

The Case

This frozen-treat-themed anthology, Fanboy and Chum Chum: Brain Freeze, finds our heroes enveloped by unbridled lust for the local convenience store's delectable pink slush dessert. Seven episodes worth, no less!

The episodes:

• "Brain Freeze"—After a Freeze binge, Fanboy and Chum Chum try to piece together what happened the night before. Why does this ring a bell?

• "The Frosty Bus"—Boog the bully prevents FB and CC from getting a Freeze.

• "Jingle Fever"—Nice title! FB and CC enter a contest to come up with the new Freeze jingle.

• "Berry Sick"—FB and CC find themselves being impromptu nursemaids for Berry, a purple monster that operates the Freeze machine.

• "Refill Madness"—Another great title! A magical cup that allows the owner unlimited Freeze refills is up for grabs.

• "Back from the Future"—Lenny, another FB and CC antagonist, travels back in time to prevent them from ever tasting a Freeze.

• "Norse-ing Around"—An unfrozen Viking pals around FB and CC, hoping to find his way to Valhalla.

As you can tell from those brief episode recaps, Fanboy and Chum Chum is pretty kooky…in a good way. For its target audience of diminutive prepubescent viewers, this is an ideal show: fast-moving, hyperactive, attractively animated and actually kinda funny. On the negative side, this disc extols the virtues of filling one's intestines with frozen sugary crap. Eh, whatever.

The DVD: Full frame, 2.0 stereo, and an original animatic of "Brain Freeze."

The Verdict

Not Guilty. Time for a sugar crash.

Did we give Fanboy And Chum Chum: Brain Freeze a fair trial? yes / no
