Chowder – Volume Two (Cartoon Network/Warner DVD)
Sound: C+ Extras: C- Episodes: C+
Chowder is a
half-decent animated series from Cartoon Network about a child (the title
character) and his world where people love food and some food is alive and
talks. This second volume has five
episodes and they are colorful and amusing.
I had never really seen the show before, but can see its appeal and the
child-safe factor is a plus. See it just
to see if you’d be interested.
The 1.33 X 1 image is clean and colorful, if not always
sharp and clear, though it has surreal and simple animation. Color is a plus and is applied in interesting
ways. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is
also clean without being too harsh. The
only extra is artwork for the show.
