This week, The Amazing World of Gumball tackles a very timely and relatable subject – “quality time with parents”. Entitled “The Meddler”, the episode finds Gumball embarrassed as his Mom comes to school in a misguided attempt to spend some “quality time” with her son.
It’s a very common scenario, and could have even happened to you at some point in your life. Not that it’s Mom’s (or Dad’s) fault – it’s natural for parents to feel some sort of disconnect with their kids due to the age gap, and it’s also perfectly natural for them to try and bridge said gap, by taking a more active part in their offspring’s daily activities. But sometimes, like in Gumball’s case, it’s in the execution where things fall apart for the worse.
Find out how the whole thing plays out by watching the Amazing World of Gumball this week, on Tuesday at 7:30 PM ET/PT.
The Amazing World of Gumball is the first UK-produced full-length animated series out of Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe. The series combines 2D and 3D animation in a live-action setting and follows the misadventures of 12-year-old Gumball and his family in the wonderful little town of Elmore. Featuring a stellar cast of characters, Gumball’s school friends include a T-Rex, a cheerleading peanut and a banana.
