Milo Murphy's Law

Milo Murphy's Law is a new show from Phineas and Ferb creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh. There was a time when I was really into Phineas and Ferb, and I still like it, so I was definitely interested in checking this out. Initially, I planned to review this in November, but then some other stuff got my attention, so I pushed this back in order to make sure I'd have something for every month. At the time, I thought that might be beneficial because I thought I'd get more episodes to work with, but there hasn't been any new episodes since. But I think I still got enough to work with.

On December 9, Nick debuted their first original animated TV movie, Albert. Created by brothers Will and Aaron Eisenberg, it was originally pitched as a feature film, but Nick ordered it as a TV movie instead. I know I've said before that Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners have left me a little less than optimistic for new animated content from Nick, but Harvey Beaks (despite Nicks's treatment of it) and The Loud House have helped. Albert was at least a success ratings-wise, with the premiere bringing in 2,403,000 viewers. But did the quality reflect these ratings?

Mighty Magiswords

In September, Cartoon Network debuted a show called Mighty Magiswords. Created by Kyle A. Carrozza, it started out as a series of short's on Cartoon Network's website. I've been aware of the shorts or a while now, but haven't seen any of them (and still haven't, I'll get to it eventually), so this was all new to me. Leading up to it's premiere though, I could tell that this was something people were interested in. So did this live up to the hype?

Classic Review: Ruby Gloom

Consider this my Halloween review (even though I've never done any actual seasonal reviews of any sort in the past). Ruby Gloom aired on YTV in Canada from 2006-08. However, it never aired in the U.S. Yet, from what I've seen, it still gained fans and even merchandise (apparently, it started out like that in 2002). Yet, it managed to go under my radar until the beginning of the month, when a friend I have on the ToonZone forums started using a picture of Ruby on her bike from the theme song as his avatar. Turns out, it's on Netflix (only the first season, though), so I decided to watch some episodes. Have I been missing out on something?

Classic Review: KaBlam!

I never watched KaBlam! when it aired on Nick. It started a year before I was born, I was only 2 when it ended, and reruns stopped airing the same year I started watching Nick. I never watched it on Nicktoons either. Plus, despite running for 4 seasons, it somewhat faded into obscurity. Honestly, I never had that much interest in watching it until I found out it was going to air on The Splat as part of their Nicktoons 25th Anniversary celebration (and also in time for the show's 20th anniversary). So I decided to check it out because I knew people did like it and was curious myself. So is this show any good?

Site Updates

I've just got through making a few additions to the blog, so I thought it would be a good idea to make a post about them.


Welcome to The Acme Reviewer, my blog where I review TV shows and movies! I also sometimes write general opinion pieces as well. Most of what I write about is cartoons because that's my biggest interest, but occasionally, if something live action grabs my attention enough, I might write about that as well.

I try to put out at least one post per month, maybe more if I'm on a roll. I don't have a set schedule beyond that, so keep checking back for updates, or enter your e-mail address in the box on the sidebar to be notified when I make a new post. I hope to be able to entertain you with what I post.
