Synopses & Reviews
Ten year old Harold Fuzzwonker gets a crash course in the underground world of Fizzopolis populated by furry/goopy creatures called Fizzies that were accidentally created by Harold’s father an absentminded inventor responsible for a soda that “makes the longest burps in the history of ever.” This is the print debut for animator/director/producer Sheesley and it’s a successful pairing: Carman’s story has the rapid pace and joke dense writing of a Nickelodeon cartoon which is precisely the vibe conjured by Sheesley’s frenzied bamp;w artwork. Burp jokes and slapstick abound as Harold brings an unpredictable Fizzy named Floyd to school all building to a somewhat abrupt ending that suggests that corporate shenanigans await in the next book.
