Camp Lazlo is an American animated comedy television series created by Joe Murray, which ran on Cartoon Network from 2005 to 2008.
Why It Rocks
- The show had quite solid animation.
- Likable characters, including Lazlo, Raj and Clam.
- It borrows elements from Rocko's Modern Life and SpongeBob SquarePants, in fact, Joe Murray created the former show.
- Good morals and lessons.
- Good voice talents from Carlos Alazraqui, Jeff Bennett, Tom Kenny, Mr. Lawrence, and Jodi Benson.
- Catchy theme song and music themes.
- It featured heartwarming moments.
- Characters like Slinkman, Patsy Smiles, and Commander Hoo-Ha can be very funny and entertaining to watch.
- This show's writing was a big improvement from Thurop Van Orman (whose first work did terribly with the last two seasons of The Powerpuff Girls), who would later go on to create The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.
- The series finale was a little lack-lusting.
- Scout Master Lumpus and Edward can be unlikable at times.
- Some music themes and music cues are very hard to find, even if you are a fan of Camp Lazlo.
- The infamous episode "Samson Needs a Hug".
- Some of the humor can feel a bit too juvenile.
- Some plots were stupid, like the episode that revolves around Lazlo having to go pee really badly only for all the bathrooms to be occupied.
- This was the first show Regular Show creator J. G. Quintel ever worked on.
- Edward and Scoutmaster Lumpus were Joe Murray's favorite characters to write for because of how fun they are.
