Mighty B! – We Got The B! (Nickelodeon/Paramount DVD)


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



Amy Poehler is a good comic actress with above average choices for material and superior timing, so when the two don’t meet, she is amusing yet not up to par.  As the lead voice in the animated Mighty B! series she co-created, she has to pull back on some of her persona to give birth to the main character, Bessie Higgenbottom.  The show is just about child friendly enough and not awful, but it did not leave the greatest impact on me either.


There are 8 episodes here (fitting four shows?) and it is as much a sample of the show as you will need to figure out what you think of it, including the title of the disc (We Got The B!) a nod to The Go-Gos.  Too bad the shows were not that witty.


The 1.33 X 1 image is not bad with minor detail issues, good color and only the occasional aliasing error, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is typical for such a show with slightly harsh sound and decent fidelity.  Extras include a Music Video, Animatic for one of the episodes and behind the scenes piece that is brief.
