Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness (Nickelodeon, Fridays at 8:30/7:30c)
Ages: 6 to 11
Story line: Po the panda — made famous by Jack Black in the movie and sequel upon which this cartoon is based — is the Dragon Warrior who engages in some serious kung fu (and cooking) with his colleagues, the Furious Five, to protect the Valley of Peace.
Why you won't hate it: Everything endearing about the movies remains, except for Black's exuberant voice, which is mimicked impeccably by Mick Wingert. There's top-notch animation, laugh-out-loud humor, fast-paced action, sight gags that work on all ages, and all-around, high-energy awesomeness. It can be heartwarming one moment and hilarious the next. And if the theme song doesn't pump you up, nothing will.
