Paramount + Wet the reboot is almost here. Now all people between the ages of 20 and 40 possesses already weighed in on how they find these disgusting character designs. But for those who are still curious, the new trailer delivers these chonky, misshapen babies in another series of imaginative adventures. Fans nostalgic for the days of the first Nicktoons, however, might not be so impressed, so it’s worth repeating that this is a show for little kids and parents who want to watch something with it. their grandchildren.
The animation of Wet looks like other CGI reboots in recent years – although it relies more on the pseudo-claymation that mimics a Laika movie at best and The Garfield Show at worst. At least it looks better than the Alvin and the Chipmunks to restart, which we all still have nightmares about. Nonetheless, fans of the original series will be happy to hear that much of the voice cast has returned for the reboot and that the additions look promising as well. Newcomers include Ashley Rae Spillers, who will succeed as Tommy Didi’s mother, Tommy Dewey as father Stu, and Michael McKean as grandfather Lou. Nickelodeon also enlisted Natalie Morales, Nicole Byer, Omar Miller and a trio of Veep alumni (Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky and Timothy Simons) to complete the cast. Of course, most of the main cast will reprise their roles, with EG Daily as Tommy, Nancy Cartwright as Chuckie, Cheryl Chase as Angelica, Cree Summer as Susie, and Kath Soucie as Phil and Lil.
Wet premiered on Paramount + on May 27 with the hour-long premiere, “Second Time Around”. If this trailer goes as well as the last one, it’s safe to say that anyone without kids or isn’t a kid will likely skip the series. And it’s good. Detractors, please keep your strength. A live action Wet is still on the way.
