I was thinking this too. However, it really depends on the age of the kids? The parents that could actually understand what’s going on could also go crazy with one kamehameha wind up lasting 3 episodes. However, I remember they remade and remastered Z?
I won’t lie, I can’t remember much of the Saturday morning cartoons except for Pokemon. Which I think both kid and parent could enjoy?
Yes, they basically took the Z saga and shrunk it to a more reasonable amount of episodes! But kids would miss out all the charged Kamehameha that require weeks and bring back 26 flashbacks per episode. That’s the ultimate agoge.
Also can consider inspector Conan, avatar the last airbender is also well done, I also love Star Wars the clone wars. Gives you the story between the 2nd and 3rd with anikan and his padawan that people didn’t know of. Yu yu hakusho is also good, but a little bit darker. Full metal alchemist is also fun but maybe to much for younger kids.
In one episode, they parodie at least three doctors, including scarf and then during a mad ride on a mobile piano with two ponies onboard to get to the wedding chapel on time, an iguana views the scene with hungry eyes thinking of a soliloquy about existential meaning of life.
I actually was passively enjoying this show with my daughters and was caught by surprise.
All the Nickelodeon shows are fantastic, both animated and live. The animated one are very heavily into puns and cultural references. I’ve actually present the references to my kids and students.
The Chinese soundtrack is terrific in teaching how not to translate a show. English:
Julian: I am not going to fail, In fact I’m going to do the opposite of fail, what is that word.
Other character: Succeed?
Julian: Suck seed, no one will be sucking seed. We will win
Chinese: Well the same except the chinese word for succeed.
And Julian still goes off about sucking seed and my kids eyes roll because they know English and my students and relatives wonder what is funny about this show.
Cartoon network and boomerang really seem to put good work into their Chinese. But, loony toons where they share a suburban neighborhood has a lot of cultural references and delicious puns.
