Why It Rocks
- Great animation, which is surprising because this is coming from one of the same companies (Vanguard Animation) that brought Happily N'Ever After.
- The voice acting is suprisingly well done. It can also be unintentionally hilarious such as Chloe screaming.
- The plot uses a cliche, which is "the world is in danger and only you can save it," that's actually executed very well.
- Chloe and Liam do make a great team, even though they don't start off well.
- The soundtrack, such as "Our House" performed by Becky G, is very catchy.
- Most of the jokes can be decent such as Pocket's hammer getting stolen...only to be stolen by a Trogg and getting hit.
- It explains a backstory of how the Troggs came to Earth.
- The scene where Chloe stands up to Liam and talks mean to the BTCs is very interesting.
- While decent, the humor sometimes falls flat such as Chloe saying that it's time for the Troggs to get "flushed."
- Logical errors. For example, if Chloe uses a rope to enter the Trogg world, but yet Trogg World has zero gravity, why couldn't she just float down?
- It sometimes reuses some screams from Chloe. One time, Brittany used one of Chloe's screams, which can be considered a sound error.
- Chloe is a bit selfish, but overall not a bad character.
- The visuals looks bland and the character designs are weird at best, The Trogg's look like Mike Wazowski and Stitch mixed in a blender .
