Have you ever had a show you watched as a kid, but when you look back on it now, you wonder what the hell they were smoking? Yin Yang Yo is the literal equivalent of that.
The series revolves around Yin and Yang, a pink bunny and her blue brother, respectively, as they train in the mythical art of "Woo Foo." I feel like I've just offended someone with that line... But, here's one...well, two...of the show's MANY problems - these have got to be the most unlikable heroes I've ever seen! Yin is a pretentious brat, while Yang is a self-absorbed prick! Their master, Yo, is both a rip-off and a parody of every mentor...ever.
And the villains...oh, my GOD, the villains...I thought Wander Over Yonder's Lord Hater was pathetic! How about having one of your main antagonists being a COCKROACH! Or, have a trio whose color scheme blatantly ripping off the Powerpuff Girls! There's one villainess, Saranoia, who literally looks like Sedusa from, again, The Powerpuff Girls. There are more ridiculous villains who look like they were rejected ideas from the Tick...which, you know, had a villain with a chair for a head...but I've gone into enough detail there.
The stories I will be reviewing in my video review are The Manitaur and League of Evil. The Manitaur has some guy kidnapping a bunch of unicorns...sorry, TWOnicorns...just to shave their manes and tails off to use as a wig for a date. I feel like I've just lost about 50 IQ points from explaining such a DUMBASS plot! And, the biggest faux pas it commits is putting Yang in the right, even though - once again - he acts like an ignorant idiot for the entire episode, while Yin, who tries to get him to read actual books instead of comic books, is put in the wrong for doing so. This happens numerous times in the series, by the way.
The other, League of Evil, has the formation of the group...the League of Evil. I feel like I've just offended Legions of DC fans for some reason. We have Carl, the evil cockroach wizard (which, by the way, is how he introduces himself. Think "The Great and Powerful TRIXIE!" And, yes, it's as stupid as it sounds,) Smoke; a Sailor Moon parody...who actually has Sailor Moon voicing her... The Puffin; just mix The Penguin with Toucan Sam, and Pondscum; who is a goldfish wearing a gold plated armor with disco hair. I don't even know anymore...
But, you wanna know what pisses me off the most about this show? The incredible amount of (WASTED) talent behind it. To name a few, we had people who worked on Invader Zim, Danny Phantom, How I Met Your Mother, Clone High...so, tell me...WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED HERE?!
My final score for this abomination is a 1 out of 10.
