Full of action, adventure, and fantasy, this uneven series has lots of visual appeal but a less-than-imaginative plot. It only takes a few episodes to see the pattern: Lord Tenoroc calls up a villain, Roxie and Gomez call on Matt's help, the three pool their resources to book the bad guy, rinse and repeat. Tenoroc never changes his tactic (it never dawns on him to release more than one monster at a time?), and Matt never thinks beyond the challenge directly in front of him, which could explain why his grandfather's fate in limbo doesn't change.

Matt Hatter Chronicles struggles in some spots, but the overall presentation is right up kids' alley. There's a lot of action, a colorful collection of fantastical villains, and the opportunity for an everyday kid to be a hero, even if it is in a world no one else knows about. And with indomitable Roxie and clever Gomez in the mix, there are some decent role models at times and consistent messages extolling the virtues of teamwork.
