The Mysterious Mare Do Well of Alpha & Omega

These two cartoons have so much controversy in the geeky parts of Youtube. Classic Alpha and Omega puppy mayhem. Some may be turned off by the PS1 like 2000's animation and seeing dancing dinos in Alpha and Omega. This might be why Alpha & Omega had it's final heydays.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism

I just found this so weird... Honestly, not their better Alpha and Omega movie/show....

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (3):

Endearing characters are back, and there are plenty of kid-friendly laughs, but this adventure is not as clever or well-plotted as previous entries in the franchise. A Las Vegas-style musical production number with geysers and lights is briefly entertaining, but relying on it to move the story doesn't really work. The Alpha and Omega movies have never been lauded for the quality of the animation but for the spirit of the characters and simply stated reminders that wildlife and the planet deserve our respect. These features are intact. And, on a positive note, there's none of the sexual innuendo and much less of the potty humor from earlier entries. Fine for kids, but not special enough to recommend.
