Fan Boy and Chum Chum in their DVD premiere was released May 24, 2011
Fanboy and his trusty sidekick, Chum Chum, are bringing their hyper imagination to stores with their first DVD, Fanboy and Chum Chum. Featuring an all-star cast of voices including Josh Duhamel and Jamie Kennedy, this DVD comes packed with eight adventures from the first season of Nickelodeon’s hit CG-animated comedy series, including two Emmy®Award-winning episodes. In addition, fans will find exciting extras including six Fanboy and Chum Chum shorts and the pilot episode of Nickelodeon’s Planet Sheen.
Who are Fanboy and Chum Chum:
Created by Eric Robles, Fanboy and Chum Chum is the hilarious story of a boy named Fanboy and his best friend and trusty sidekick, Chum Chum, two endlessly energetic “super fans” of all things sci-fi and fantasy. Their world is full of comic adventure (and misadventures) as they share a hyper imagination that enables a wide-eyed acceptance of the bizarre. They’re fearless! They’re adventurous! They wear underwear on the outside of their costumes! They’re Fanboy and Chum Chum.
The boys and Honey watched this together, ages 13-5. Honey found it funny but I think she watched it more so to spend time with her brothers. The boys watch episodes of Fanboy and Chum Chum and were disappointed that they had already seen all of the episodes. However both boys still found the DVD entertaining and I enjoyed the fits of laughter that would erupt from the room now and again. I personally find them as silly and goofy as the three stooges which is probably why they are appealing to my boys.
