As superhero tales go, Dr. Dimensionpants won't give the likes of Superman and Spider-Man a run for their money. The stories are unremarkable, and 12-year-old Kyle can be impulsive and argumentative, which makes for a lot of bickering not only between him and his adversaries but also in his exchanges with Philip. And speaking of Philip, it's somewhat disconcerting that Kyle's sworn mentor seems to enjoy seeing his charge make embarrassing mistakes as he adjusts to his new powers and responsibilities.

But for all its hectic content, the show does offer kids a bevy of quirky characters, particularly in the villain population. From giant slugs to Yeti, they come in all shapes and sizes, and recurring characters such as Glass Skull (Brian Drummond) and the Cortex (Ian James Corlett) hatch one zany scheme after another to snatch Kyle's dimension pants and the powers that go with them. It makes for a somewhat chaotic show, but it's sure to strike a fancy with kids who like that kind of action.
