    I could have sworn that they had actually gotten most of the voice actors from the movies back for the show. I was really surprised to find out that they didn't and that these impersonators were just that good.

    I'm watching, it KICKS ASS.

    My favorite characters thus far are Fung [the awesome crocodile voiced by John DiMaggio], Temutai WARRIOOOOR KIIIING OF THE CLAN QUI-DAAAAAAAAAAAAAI [voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson] and Tong Fo [a Magnificent Bastard monkey, voiced by Jeff Bennet].

    It manages to capture most of the movie's coolness, though it is far closer to the first movie's goofy adventure than the second movie's profound tale of fiding your true self.

    In fact, I intend to write a fanfic about the previous Furious Five because this show got me curious about that [The Furious Five that had Shifu].

    Very witty, very funny, full 30 minute plots instead of 15 minute ones, martial arts direction and musical score by Sifu Kisu and The Track Team(the same guys who worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender), FANTASTIC voice work that makes you wonder why they pay Jack Black millions when his impersonator would do it for half price.

    Overall? This series fits its title, it's awesome.

    I think Penguins of Madagascar is a pretty kickass show.. but each their own!

    Seen a single episode of Kung Fu Panda so far.. seems alright, but of cause the danish dubbing is terrible.

    It's a fun show.
    I haven't seen very much of it (Maybe like 4 episodes), but I enjoyed what all I saw.

    I find it funny that the guy who played Jackie from Jackie Chan Adventures is playing Monkey (who was played by the real Jackie Chan in the movie).

    They replay the episodes fairly often, so it's pretty easy to get caught up. Apparently the original airings are being done out of production order, though... doesn't seem to make TOO much of a difference.

    What's interesting is not only did Mick Wingert get the gig for this show based on his work in the first Kung Fu Panda game, he also got to appear as a minor character in the Holiday Special, which had all the original actors.

    I enjoy the show quite a bit... they've done a pretty good job of capturing Po's personality, and it gives them a chance to develop the Five a little more. The bit with Mantis's caterpillar girlfriend cracked me up.
