Larva Island is the fourth and fifth season of Larva and premiered on October 19, 2018 on Netflix. The show focuses on the titular larvae characters from Season 1 to 3; Red and Yellow, being stranded on a tropical island as the two curious, goofy larva buddies find slapstick fun in everything from discovering food to meeting new animal friends.

Why It Rocks

  1. The animation quality improved after the first 3 seasons.
  2. Chuck is the first language-speaking human character of the show.
  3. The new characters are more likable than other characters from the previous 3 seasons and the titular characters have more character development than the first 3 seasons ever showed.
  4. There are not enough potty jokes in this season than the other 3 seasons. In fact, there is no episode that only focuses on farts or childish humor. Yellow's farts aren't a part of the jokes anymore, but mainly the story.
  5. The writing has a new style of cohesion and is more sophisticated than before.
  6. Yellow now uses his gross-out traits from the first 3 seasons for helping his friends on this island instead of gross-out humor.
  7. Due to the episode time limit is extended to 7 minutes instead of 3, the plots actually make more sense and don't feel as rushed or cartoonish.
  8. It is the longest-running season of the show, with 2 seasons being currently on Netflix.
  9. For those who miss the old characters such as Grey with the gang from Season 2 and the recurring characters from Season 1, they appear in "Lala Island" and the "Larva Ranger" episodes.
  10. The adventures are far more interesting and cartoonishly energetic, something the other seasons didn't show enough of.
  11. The humor is more exaggerated & funnier than the first 3 seasons' attempt at exaggerated humor and now with sophistication.
  12. "A Lucky Day" has the segment when Chuck tries to get rid of Yellow & Red as a direct throwback to 1940s animation with the Looney Tunes background & music, and it is like a parody of CG Looney Tunes shorts with an enjoyably new style to it.
  13. The music is very refreshing, tropical, sometimes jazzy & pretty nice to listen to.

Bad Qualities

  1. Even if the animation quality improved massively, the animation style is still kinda bland. But it still very expressive and amazingly animated compared to many CGI shows for the time.
  2. Chuck by personality is well-structured, relatable & solid, but his dialogue is somewhat corny. But this is understandable from the standpoint of a Korean animation company dubbing for American audiences.
  3. It still has some flaws from the previous seasons, such as the occasional toilet humor and several butt-monkey characters (This time being Chuck the massive Butt-Monkey of the show instead of Red and Yellow)
    • Speaking of which, the Red, Yellow, and Chuck's relationship feels like the SpongeBob and Patrick-Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants with the straight man suffering from the idiots' antics.
  4. The last episode ended in a cliffhanger (pretty much ending the series where it was getting better) which didn't really specify where Red and Yellow went other than them being put in another slapstick-induced adventure.

I somewhat liked the previous seasons, {the potty humor that died off was a solid decision to do with this season & good thing there were NO other episodes that truly presented the cringe & atrocious elements of that Season 3 episode. The less said about that show, the better) But this was a great season for Larva

Someone should copy and paste this this in the bad qualities:

  1. It still has some flaws from the previous seasons, such as toilet humor and MegWard the Wizard characters (This time being Chuck the Butt-Monkey instead of Red and Yellow)
    1. Speaking of which, the Red and Yellow-Chuck relationship feels like the SpongeBob and Patrick-Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants.
  2. The last episode ended in a cliffhanger which does not specify where Red and Yellow went.

I still think that this show was unfairly blocked (along with Larva), cause I think those other edits may have had a bad impression but others should be able to edit pages like this.
