When it comes to the greatest storytellers in human history you have Shakespeare, you have Charles Dickens, you have Ernest Hemingway, and then you have whoever created Rocket Power.
It's a show that transcends time and space. A show which is the peak of human excellence and all we can achieve. When we finally make contact with the aliens and need to show them what we're all about, it will be Otto, Reggie, Twister and Squid. If everybody on the planet aspired to live their life by the sage wisdom of Tito, we would have world peace by now. Moral of the story--it was the best animated series in Nickelodeon history.
So for a brief moment, I was overcome with unparalleled joy when I thought Rocket Power was finally making its way to Netflix. The reason I assumed RP was going to be added to the streaming service was because I saw this headline pop up on Barstool Sports [dot] com.
But upon clicking on the article (you're welcome for the pageviews, KenJac. I actually click all of my colleagues' blogs because I'm a company man like that), I was shocked and appalled to see the blog was written as if "Avatar: The Last Airbender" was the best animated show in Nickelodeon history.
I like KenJac. He seems like a great guy. I've never met him in person before but I'd imagine I'd have nothing but good things to say about him if we shared an encounter. But the man is either a liar or he has somehow managed to go his entire life without ever watching an episode of Rocket Power. A man is only as good as his word so I do not wish to besmirch his honor by calling him a liar. He deserves benefit of the doubt here. Innocent until proven guilty. This is America, after all.
But I certainly hope I am right here. I certainly pray upon the gods that KenJac has simply never seen Rocket Power before rather than knowing damn well it is the greatest show in Nickelodeon history but still pretending like "Avatar: The Last Airbender" even belongs in the conversation.
Talking about a "combination of humor, action, drama and great characters" as if Rocket Power didn't write the blueprint on all of that. Shaking my dang head.
