The last Canadian flash cartoon I'm going to review this summer. This review will be on a cartoon, called "Sidekick." Its plot is about a boy named Eric, who along with his friends attend an accademy to train to become sidekicks. Like with Scaredy Squirrel, I have watched this cartoon in my youth. When I rewatched this show. While better than the other two. It's bad.
It has bad flash animation. But the character designs, and action sequences can get decent. The episodes. I'm rather mixed on them. Some of them have good ideas. Like in "Virtual Mayhem." But other times it is pretty mean spirited. Don't get me wrong, mean spiritedness can work. Even in this show where Eric sometimes acts like a jerk. But in episodes like for one example, "Everybody is Side-Fu Fighting." Bleh. The jokes are hit or mixed to me.
Let's look at the characters. Which I'm also mixed on. Some of the characters are likable. Eric, Kitty, Mandy, and Master XOX. Other characters are bad. Trevor, Vana, the teacher, and Maxum Man. Let's start off with the likable characters. Eric is normally a good and relatable kid. Kitty has a crush on Eric. But is also a good, and smart friend to the team. Mandy appears in some episodes. She is like the catwoman to Eric. The best character on the show is Master XOX. He is a cool villain, who also has a split personality good side.
Now onto the bad characters. Trevor is Eric's best friend. Who is a lazy jerk. Vana is your typical selfish popular girl. Granted she can also care for Eric, Trevor, and Kitty. So I find her more likable then them. Professor Pamplemoose is the mean spirted teacher. Maxum Man disappears in the cartoon. But is shown to be a jerk to Eric, and his other sidekicks.
So in conclusion. I find this cartoon mediocore. I will give it a 4/10.
