What a classic Disney show! And for an old Disney show that aired in 2006 and was one of the first CGI Disney cartoons, it's actually pretty awesome!
In the futuristic city of Progress, courier teams compete to be the number one team. And a new team called Dojo Deliveries - a group of couriers consisting of children - are quickly rising up the ranks. But one of the city's bureaucrats, Mr Bedlam, is aiming to take over the world. But Bedlam needs the help of the newest and youngest member on the Dojo team: Ed. But of course, since Bedlam is evil, Ed and his friends have to not only battle other courier teams who want the top spot in the delivery ranks, but also battle Bedlam along the way.
Early episodes are light-hearted and fun, but as the show progresses the tone becomes more mature and the situations get darker. And yet the show never loses its beat.
Did I mention the soundtrack is totally radical?
The characters are all excellently rounded and relatable. First we have the Teacher, Ol' Skool, who is laid-back and fond of deadpan snarking while also getting involved with the team from time to time and taking drastic measures if need be.
Then there's Burn, the oldest of the kids, and therefore the leader. He is the most skilled, but is very prideful. And yet he has a warm, big-brotherly heart for his friends.
Then there's Deets. And there is more to her than meets the eye. She may seem like a Girly Girl, but she's the best fighter and has high moral standards.
Loogie is next. While he's a bit scatterbrained, he's just crazy- awesome! His puppet, Dr Pinch, has a mind of its own and helps to keep him in check - and provide some humour too.
Then there's Fizz. She's a bright girl who's a wizard with machines, though she has doubts about herself, due to her short height. She, along with Deets, are like big sisters to Ed.
And finally we have Ed, the newest and youngest member. While naive, he's creative and his heart is strong. He also has an AI called Torch, who's a co-pilot that comes with funny one-liners.
So with awesome characters, strong story arcs, and a rocking soundtrack, Get Ed is one of those epic old Disney shows that remains a classic to this day!
