Pocket Protectors #5

Share Collapse

Author Comments

When Ollie breaks his beloved scooter pulling off some “sweet moves” he is devastated. While he is at school, the Pocket Protectors not only fix his scooter but “improve” it with a few extra embarrassing features. Safety is key... but in this case, it's the key to ridicule from Ollie's friends. Especially when it's the day before the local “Scooter Stunt Games”.

oh man you just made me remember MUMMIES ALIVE. Again.

I love this show!

The race is coming up! Wonder how he'll fare on that groovy scooter there! Another nice episode, though the intro is a tenth of the length. :) Keep it going!

obviously it's meant for kids so it's not really for me, but i honestly thougth it was really well done.

It's very professional, which is good and bad. Television shows that rely too heavily on flash are very cleanly animated with a lot of tweening hand movement, eye darting, and head bobbing but don't have anything unique about the visuals. That is the problem here.

There isn't much to the script either. Anthropomorphic characters are always funny-looking, but that doesn't propel a show. If the humor comes from a child's incompetent pocket-sized heroes, then it would be far funnier to see them attempting to help but failing spectacularly the kid with schoolwork or personal relationships. There isn't much lost in a scooter tournament.

Otherwise, if you are aiming the show at children, it would be good to see some sort of lesson learned that gives the show substance.
