I'm crazy about Rocket Power! If you don't like it, don't watch it. But I love it!
Otto Rocket: A nine-year-old daredevil-type boy, obsessed with sports and extremely competitive. I'm not too fond of him, because forgive me, but he seems kind of arrogant. But he's right to brag; he's proven himself more than once as the best dude at sports for miles around.
Reggie Rocket: Otto's 11-year-old sister. She's kinda bossy, but the good in her definitely outweighs the bad. She publishes her own 'zine, and is quite the voice of reason within the Rocket Power gang. Reggie proudly stands for girl power.
Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez: Otto's best friend; a master with a camera... although he can't manage to pass a math or spelling test. He has a sensitive side; he loooves animals, and he even tried to adopt a seal once. But he's also really gullible. His older brother, Lars, makes a pastime out of teasing Twister and playing pranks on him and his friends.
Sam "The Squid" Dullard: The new guy in town, nine years old and in sixth grade. Literally a genius, Team Rocket's rather shy hockey goalie moved in just recently from Hutchinson, Kansas, and is a lot more cautious than the others, keeping them a bit more grounded. He helps Reggie with her 'zine, and in return, Reggie stands up for him when he unfairly becomes the target of Otto and Twister's sense of humor. Sam and I have a lot in common, and he's my favorite character, with Reggie in a close second-place.
I hope they make a movie about Rocket Power soon! There haven't been any Nick-Flicks or anything so far.
The Wild Thornberrys is a cause for applause, folks! Anyone who doesn't like it must have mistaken this show for some other thing. Because I can't understand why anyone would dislike this sweet, educational, fun, family-friendly show about a lovable 12-year-old kid with "the gift of gab." What I mean by this is that Eliza can talk to animals, and don't you wish you could, too? I do! It's my totally favorite show, with Rocket Power in close second, and As Told By Ginger in third. Other than that, I don't watch too much TV. Anyway, I'm going off on a tangent.
Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure is a cool movie that many kids today can really relate to. It's a well-presented story about a kid who longs for the freedom to do things his way, and how he goes about getting this freedom is only a part of what makes this film interesting. Just forget the itty-bitty disappointments, like the fact that there were only adults in this movie based on a pup's point of view, because that's just 0.5% or less of the movie's wonderful effect on the viewer. Great music, lively acting, talented animation and directing, and a powerful storyline tell a tale of the difference between freedom on the streets of New England and a cozy home with your family. And that no matter how bad things seem, your family and friends are "always there" to help you though any tight spot.
