Premise of show : League of Super Evil is a Cartoon Network show produced in Canada by Nerd Corps Entertainment. It focuses on a group of super baddies who are incredibly inept, stupid and don't have much ambition. Their dastardly schemes include things like trying to get free pizza or steal pay television channels. The four baddies are Voltar, a little guy in a red suit who seems to take the lead mostly, Doctor Frogg, a genius inventor who is extremely unlucky with metal claws instead of hands and metal teeth, Red Menace, who is a big dumb ox (and is really a nice guy) and Doomageddon, their pet who eats everything in sight.
Age Group : 5-12
Related to any other children's shows? : Not really but it does spoof many other baddies in cinema and comic books.
Adult's view : This is a surprisingly entertaining and amusing show which adults can enjoy watching with their kids.
Child's view : My boys (7 & 6) are highly amused by this show, finding the characters very funny and their schemes very silly.
Other Releases of this show available? : This is the first release of this show in Australia, and seemingly globally.
Overall : A kids show which provides lots of fun for kids and is even enjoyable by adults.
The video quality is very good. The feature is presented in a 1.33:1 aspect ratio non 16x9 enhanced which is not the original aspect ratio. I would guess these shows were made for widescreen but have been cropped for these releases.
The picture was reasonably clear and sharp throughout although not up to the usual standard for animation, with no evidence of low level noise. The colour was very good with deep blacks and vibrant colours. There were no noticeable artefacts. There are no subtitles. There is a layer change between episodes.
The audio quality is very good. This DVD contains an English Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo soundtrack encoded at 224 Kb/sthn sound is front and centre focused. Dialogue was clear and easy to understand and there was no problem with audio sync. The surround speakers were used a little for atmosphere and music and the subwoofer was not used very much.
