Powerpuff knockoff has more monkeys, less humor.

It's entertaining and learning

Before I start talking about the show, here are a few of my credentials to prove to you that I know what I am talking about: -I watched the show's all four seasons multiple times ever since I was 10 years old for the last 9 years -I am an education student -I study child psychology outside my academics Now, as for the show, Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go is anything but boring and violent: 1. Entertaining -I think of Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go to actually be very similar to Cartoon Network's Teen Titans. Yes, it has comedic scenes and episodes. Yes, it has fight scenes. Yes, it has dramatic scenes. Also, yes it's both serious and comedic. As I have mentioned before, Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go is Disney Channel's version of "Teen Titans." The only difference between the two shows (aside from the type of characters) is that Teen Titans is more respected because the show and characters is already owned by a big company known as DC 2. Child-Friendly -It's not violence. Just like any superhero show, it has fight scenes, but that does not mean that the show is violent. Throughout the entire show, fight scenes never included blood, rarely was the actual hits were shown, and energy attacks were used more often. Horrific? I don't think so. Skeleton King is an evil robot, Valeena does not look like a typical witch, and Mandarin is a talking monkey. Horror? I don't see it

An excellent series

The show is full of excellent messages about moral and ethical questions that are hardly, if ever, examined in other children's shows. While the plot may be a bit difficult, it is a breath of fresh air in a day and age where the deepest message is 'Teens lives are complicated'. While, yes, the show has violence it also shows that the violence has consequences, as opposed to a lot of other cartoons where they come out completely unscathed after a nuclear bomb. There is continuity, and if Disney would renew the license you would see that. It is hardly just "shooting things and blowing them up" as was stated. Yes, it is a lot like other shows from the good ol' days, because that is the point. It is supposed to reference many old shows, including the PPG, not to mention Power Rangers. The creator intended this, and has stated they are a huge influence on the show's overall design. Antauri, one of the main team, is constantly giving wise advice including 'facing your fears' and 'humanity is mostly good' which, I believe, are some extremely important lessons. I have seen many other shows that rise to immense popularity that are incredibly mindless with little to no plot, no moral lessons, no ethical dilemmas addressed and horrible animation to boot. Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go! is one of the deepest shows I have ever tuned into. I am a very critical person, so this fact rather a miracle. Sure, it has a few plot hiccups, but what show doesn't? Certainly, I would not recommend it to very little children, but to blatantly accuse it of being nothing but shooting things is nothing short of silly. It is something I would have watched over and over again as a young girl, if it had been around at that time. It appeals to many people of many ages, as there are different layers to every scene. The retro-gaming is fun for adults, the bright colors and heroics are fun for younger children and the lessons are fun for all. I've overcome a few of my own issues by thinking to myself 'Hey, there was an episode that dealt with this. What did they do?' and it worked wonders. This show is incredible and does not deserve such a harsh criticism.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (13):

Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go certainly isn't for young kids. The villains are scary looking, the plots hopelessly confusing and lacking in any kind of continuity. It's a show that works only if your main focus is on (all together now) shooting things and blowing them up. If your kids watch these action-adventure superpower style shows, this is just one more, no better than the rest, but not really any worse. It's less creative than Powerpuff Girls and lacks that program's humor, jokey attitude, and its arguable message of gender equality.
