Was a pretty decent comedy for Disney XD at the time.

I myself have watched it with my son when the show was still running in the mornings and it was funny and it wasn't like Disney's newer crappy sit coms.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10):
Kids say (34):

ZEKE AND LUTHER appeals to tweens' impressions of the ideal life, in which responsibilities are few, playtime abounds, and every outrageous situation is easily resolved within 30 minutes. Unfortunately, adults will take issue with that same improbable view of life, and parents may not like the show's non-messages about taking responsibility.

What's more, the series is surprisingly lacking in pizzazz, which makes its content flaws that much more noticeable. The characters are so one-dimensional that the bare-bones stories quickly become predictable and flat, and there's no attempt at beefing it up with any obvious positive messages or lessons learned. Bottom line? There's nothing really worrisome here, but there are many higher quality choices for impressionable tweens.
