Summertainment: Camp Lazlo (2005)

Summer is a week and a half away as I write. Let's get a headstart with Camp Lazlo.

Series creator Joe Murray had previously masterminded Rocko's Modern Life for Nickelodeon during the 90's, and got a call from Linda Simensky, who was now at Cartoon Network after a stint at Nick. Lazlo lasted three years, which, if memory serves, was about the same length of time as Rocko. In this writer's opinion, it might've lasted longer if CN didn't air it on weekdays when there weren't enough episodes to justify it. Since that's CN policy these days, should we be surprised?

Here's the intro:

Seems to me Murray tried to bring the Nickelodeon style to CN, but, seeing as how former CN talent such as Butch Hartman have thrived, at least for a while, at Nick, one wonders what the thought process is in the front office these days at CN.....!

Rating: C.

Then, don't ya think it should be back on the air for the summer? CN is sitting on it, and shouldn't have to.
