MEGAMIND RULES!: Season One

"Fun Spin-Off Series Follows Villain-Turned-Hero"

What You Need To Know:

Season One of MEGAMIND RULES! on Peacock picks up where Peacock’s TV movie MEGAMIND VS DOOM SYNDICATE left off. Megamind is finding his way after giving up his evil ways. He soon discovers that doing the right thing is harder than he thought. Metro City’s superhero faces new obstacles like trying to go viral on social media, fighting new villains and stopping The Doom Syndicate from terrorizing Metro City.

The overall quality of MEGAMIND RULES! is tainted by the quality of animation, which pales in comparison to the 2010 animated movie MEGAMIND. The big-name stars attached to the original movie (Will Ferrel, David Cross Tina Fey, and Ben Stiller) are not on the bill for the series. However, Keith Ferguson, Josh Brener and Laura Post do an excellent job as voice actors. Overall, Season One of MEGAMIND RULES! is a fun series with redemptive lessons and a strong moral worldview of good overcoming evil over the entirety of the season. There is cartoon violence, some insults, light scatological humor, and occasional politically correct content. So, MOVIEGUIE® advises caution for younger children.

More Detail:

MEGAMIND RULES!: Season One, available on Peacock, follows the misadventures of Megamind as he eases into his role as protector of Metro City. The duration of the season features the running theme of good versus evil, with Megamind struggling to conquer his new role. Each episode shows positive character development for our superhero as he overcomes potential nemeses, competing superheroes and evildoers. Much like the 2010 movie MEGAMIND, the series features stories about redemption, good conquering evil and overcoming past mistakes.

The production quality is passable for a TV series but doesn’t have the same polish as its namesake. The plot of each episode teaches valuable lessons, and the creative storylines keep the repetitive themes from becoming boring and predictable. The voice acting is excellent, and the situations will keep children on the edge of their seats as Megamind solves mysteries and outsmarts the villains, episode after episode.

While MEGAMIND RULES!: Season One is a fun animated family series, there are several behavioral and worldview issues that parents should note. Characters tease each other and each episode has numerous moments of name-calling and some bullying. There is a focus on popularity and social media, as Megamind competes with the media-savvy hero, Dude Monkey. The show contains light moments of “woke” comments referring to the environment and jokes about democracy. Finally, Roxy is the mayor of Metro City, and a subtle feminist theme runs throughout the series where Megamind is treated like he’s incapable while the female characters take the lead. Yet, in the end, our superhero usually saves the day.

However, the series has a strong Christian, moral worldview extolling the importance of making the right decision. It also consistently asks the question, what kind of person do you want to be? Of course, Metro City is a town filled with villains doing evil shenanigans, which leads to mild cartoon violence and lots of comedy. Every episode contains explosions, weapons and general mayhem. Within the unfolding crime sprees, characters are robbed, and the villains make bad decisions, which are ultimately rebuked.

For the most part, MEGAMIND RULES!: Season One is an exciting streaming series that older children will enjoy, especially for MEGAMIND fans. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children because of cartoon violence, some insults, light scatological humor, and light politically correct content.
