Da Boom Crew is Canadian-American animated series created by Bruce W. Smith (creator of Disney's The Proud Family) that aired on The WB Network's Kids! WB block from September 11 to October 2nd, 2004.
A bunch of kids get hit by a power surge which causes them to be transported into their own video game.
Why It Sucks
- The characters always constantly talk in slang that nobody EVER used (i.e - "Tony Hawk it later, homie!").
- Highly pretentious and tries way too hard.
- It's literally all just an annoying mess.
- It's a case of a horrible TV show with a good concept. Other sufferers from this case include Legends of Chamberlain Heights and later seasons of Oggy and the Cockroaches.
- Rips off better shows (mainly Samurai Jack and Captain N: The Game Master).
- Bland animation.
- It uses every sci-fi cliche in the book.
- Racist black stereotypes which is ironic considering that one of the creators (Bruce Smith, the main force behind it) is African-American.
- This show was so bad that only 4 of the 13 episodes were aired in America while the other 9 episodes aired in the UK.
- A poor man's The Proud Family, which is ironic considering the show was made by the same people who made it.
- The theme song rips off Puff Daddy's Come With Me.
- It aired on one of the greatest Saturday morning cartoon blocks of all time, Kids! WB.
- For some reason, the kids are surprised of what they see in the world they were teleported to and said place looks like the game they made. Shouldn't they know it by now?
- Some lip sync screw ups there and there.
- The show's logo appears at a few random points every episode for no apparent reason.
- The breaks between the cold open and intro, intro and first scenes, between scenes before and after commercial breaks and the final scene and end credits last unnecessarily long.
- Even the end credits are horrible as they are cheapily made and of poor quality since they were placed on the side of the screen and the production company logos lazily appear in-credit rather than separately in the same size as the credits making it barely noticeable.
- Decent character designs
