      Season 1 – Glenn Martin, DDS

      2009 Comedy Animation List
      36% 11 Reviews Tomatometer The first production to come from Michael Eisner's Tornante Animation, "Glenn Martin, DDS" follows the adventures of a dentist who, after learning that his favorite childhood amusement park is about to be demolished, takes his family on a cross-country road trip in his toothbrush-topped "dental mobile" to protest the razing. Along the way, the Martins grow closer as a family as they're met by an assortment of colorful locals and crazy situations. The stop-motion animated comedy's road trip plot, as Eisner sees it, is in the mold of themes explored in feature films "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Vacation." Read More Read Less

      Critics Consensus

      While Glenn Martin is at times visually interesting, the overall lack of laughs turns what should be a family comedy into a major disappointment.

      Previous Emily St. James AV Club There's an interesting idea here for a show that could finally be the one that closes the gap between Nickelodeon and Nick at Nite, but it's just not fully realized yet. C+ Sep 25, 2019 Full Review David Hinckley New York Daily News It's broad, accessible comedy - the kind of show where you aren't sure what to expect, but once you sit down, you keep watching. Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Joanna Weiss Boston Globe It's a beautiful art form; the characters look like toys brought to life, and watching them makes you want to go out and buy modeling clay. Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Keith Watson Glenn Martin, DDS is a neat companion piece to Family Guy with a curiously endearing quality. Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Kari Croop Common Sense Media It seems doubtful that it will become an animation classic that stands the test of time. It's not the funniest thing on television -- or even in its time slot. But for parents and kids who prefer their family humor with a little kick, it delivers. 3/5 Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews Next
