Kirby: Right Back at Ya! (US)

Right Back at Ya! is an anime series based on Nintendo's Kirby franchise. The series was produced by Warpstar Inc., a company formed between a joint investment between Nintendo and HAL Laboratory, Inc. The show was a part of 4Kids TV (formerly known as FoxBox). The show is distributed by 20th Century Fox, Nelvana Enterprises, and HAL Laboratory, Inc. It ended in Japan in 2003 with 100 episodes, and the final episodes are scheduled to air in 2006 in the US. The show is about the adventures Kirby has with his friends after he crash lands on the planet Popstar, in the country of Dreamland. Kirby is actually a legendary Star Warrior destined to save the planet from destruction by the evil Nightmare. The greedy ruler of Dreamland, King Dedede, orders up fearsome monsters from Nightmare's company, Nightmare Enterprises. He uses them to attack Kirby and the people of Dreamland, but Kirby uses his signature abilities to inhale and copy an enemy's power to save the day. Kirby is only based on the game series, taking characters and concepts rather than copying any of the games word-for-word. It can be seen as an alternate universe, having no connection to the game timeline. Being mainly self-contained, it can be easier for those unfamiliar with the game series to understand it. The series is rife with satire and parody, some of it self-referential in nature. Homages to old movies are common, as are references to modern popular culture, politics and news events.

I was young when I first saw The enlish dub in '08. It was the anime I was ever obsessed with. However, I didn't get to see it much, thanks to Nicktoon's hatred of even the smallest hints of adult humor in a kid's cartoon. But when CatDog, Chalkzone run rampint , 4kids would let me watch there Kirbyo video on loop. And I would shut up for the rest of the day. Read more
