Kenny The Shark – Catch A Wave (Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Episodes: C+



The last time we had a hit talking shark, it had Curly’s voice from The Three Stooges and was Hanna-Barbera’s Jabberjaw.  Kenny The Shark could almost be his cousin and despite the different sharks that have surfaced in animated features lately (A Shark’s Tale, Finding Nemo) has some very similar art characteristics.


Catch A Wave features seven shows form the hit Discovery kids channel show, which makes the title character a good friend of children, especially Kat and is actually refreshing at a time when actual sharks are becoming extinct and because the media (big ands small) has nothing better to do, cheaply vilifies them.  The show is not much more than a children’s romp of some quality, safe for most of the younger ages, but the shows can become repetitious.  However, it is worth a look and fans will enjoy the accessibility minus the commercials here.


The 1.33 X 1 image throughout is clean and clear, with some good color, if reserved like too many productions today.  That means that the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has no palpable Pro Logic surrounds, but is cleanly recorded.  The only extra is an 8th bonus episode, Creep of The Deep.
