He's more than you think, he's maximum pink
7 December 2002 | by donmccullen-1See all my reviews

Based on the Nintendo video game this show takes place on a far away planet called Popstar. Popstar is constantly bombarded by monsters that are ordered by Popstar's ruler King Dedede (pronounced De-De-De).

The monsters are part of an evil corporation called Night Mare Enterprises headed by a figure called NME who is determined to enslave the universe. Popstar's only hope is a Star Warrior who goes by the name of Kirby.

Kirby does come to Popstar but at the wrong time. Kirby is a baby and does not have the fighting experience. To make matter worse Dedede is not found of Kirby and is determined to take out Kirby for good with NME's help. Followers of the Kirby games know that Dedede is the main villian.

However a girl named Tiff who is very strong willed does her best to protect Kirby. She is helped by her brother Tuff (most of the time), and by Meta Knight who is a Star Warrior himself and one of few warriors left after losing to Night Mare Enterprises. Together they help Kirby in perfecting his skills and to be the light of hope to defeat NME.

Kirby for the most part is played of laughs since this show is produced by Nintendo and 4Kids (who also produce Pokemon), but it still good fun. If your fan of the Kirby video game series you might enjoy this fun cartoon show.
