Great new Disney XD show for the star of Kid vs. Kat!
Erin Matthews hasn't really been in much before Kid vs. Kat, but I feel that she gradually became a popular VA icon with Disney XD for both that show and this one, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. Like Samurai Jack, the writers of this show are smart enough to keep up the good work more than half the time and almost always have good episodes, which makes it worth while for The Mysterious Mr. Enter to review the 10 best of all 52 of them in Admirable Animations.
Like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, this is a new show in a new generation of a toy/video game franchise that's a lot more interesting than what came before it because you can assume that original fans of Pac-Man or My Little Pony that were kids in the 1980s or 1990s grew up to make this newer version with more substance and better characters. I can even recognize Cylindria, Pinky, Inky and Skeebo as the voices of Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Snips and Soarin because I know they are the same VAs. I'm glad they found a new show after 3 seasons of MLP so they're not stuck with the same show forever and have time to voice act in another one.
Pac-Man is the Samurai Jack of the show, the noble hero who can fight almost anything, but still has his flaws and limitations. Betrayus is Aku, the hard-to-defeat villain who's very hammy. After 52 episodes, you wonder how the overall premise of the series is going to conclude and you want to see how Samurai Pac-Man eventually finally permanently removes Aku/Betrayus from existence. Let's just hope that if such a revival does come up that ties up all the loose ends from the beginning, it's not an adult audience revival like Samurai Jack, because that will really ruin what made the original kids show great and turn our hero into something really cruel and awful that even the villain would be scared to see.
