So if you don't know about Slugterra here's a quick rundown:
Now if that sparks your attention then I have a little surprise for you! Last week, on Feb. 12, Shout! Kids released the first Slugterra DVD! Slugterra: Return of the Shane Gang is almost two hours of Eli Shane and his friends training and dueling with their SLUGS in a battle to defeat the evil Dr. Blakk. The DVD includes 5 action packed episodes that are sure to keep you glued to the screen. Just ask my son.Slugterra is an epic sci-fi comedy/adventure set deep underground, where the ammo’s alive and only the quick survive! In this luminous, high-tech, underground world, every cavern holds a new adventure, a new battle and weird little slugs to be discovered.
My Take: Sure it's weird that they battle with slugs that you load into guns. Sure, there are weird looking creatures that can talk, but hey, it's a cartoon and it's fun. The slugs aren't really violent but they do battle, think Pokemon, and they are super cute. They have cool powers like shocking people or causing explosions and weird powers like flatulence and excreting goo! I was surprised to get the DVD in the mail but my son was thrilled. I'm sure he and his sister have watched the DVD over 6 times in the last few weeks. They both give it a thumbs up!
Buy it: Slugterra: Return of the Shane Gang is available on DVD right now for the SRP of $14.97 ($10.49 on Amazon). If you're still not certain you want to buy this then check out the clip below (it shows a little dueling featuring the Shane Gang):
