Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness is an American CGI-animated television series that spun off from the Kung Fu Panda films. It takes place after the first film, showing Po's training to become a successful and masculine Dragon Warrior, and takes place during the second film, according to the creator of the series himself, Peter Hastings.

Why It Rocks

  1. It is very faithful to the original Kung Fu Panda films it was based off of, taking place in between Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2.
  2. Po himself is a very funny main protagonist.
  3. Very catchy theme song, as weird as the lyrics might be.
  4. Unlike The Penguins Of Madagascar (another good show produced by Dreamworks Animation that is on Nickelodeon), it actually focuses on the plot, instead of the humor.
  5. Very intimidating main antagonists, such as Hundun, Fung, Temutai, and Master Junjie.
  6. Very decent animation for a lower-budget TV series.
  7. Awesome action scenes, just like the films.
  8. The series ended perfectly.

Bad Qualities

  1. Season 1 was very formulaic.
  2. The animation isn't as good as the films, noticeable by the fur textures are fused unlike the films, which had fur textures.
  3. The name of the show is somewhat uncreative.
  4. Can get a bit too violent and mean-spirited at times.
  5. The characters can be a bit out of character sometimes.
  6. The show uses the same locations over and over again, which is unacceptable considering that The Penguins Of Madagascar managed to provide many locales despite the lower budget.
