The Amazing World of Gumball

So I'm back at talking about cartoons. This is another wonderful gem from Cartoon Network called The Amazing World of Gumball. This show does an awesome job of blending 2D animation with 3D animation.

The show follows the misadventures of a boy Gumball and his pet fish/brother Darwin. The show contains a multitude of characters that a created either using 2D or 3D designs.

The animation style is very unique and it's very cool seeing these two very different styles of animation interact in a photo realistic world. The world that has been created by this show keeps me constantly captivated. I think this show has a strong overall 3D team. The textures, environment, lighting, and animation are all very strong. The show has also won a multitude of awards this past year at many different animation award shows. If you've liked Cartoon Networks recent stream of shows for kids... that aren't necessarily for kids you'll enjoy this one.

Here's a quick taste of the show:

The Amazing World of Gumball reairs on Cartoon Network and a new season is currently in development!
