Get Blake! (Initially called Blake and the Aliens during development) is a French/American children's animated television series. The series is produced by the French animation company Marathon Media for Gulli and the global network Nickelodeon. The show first premiered on March 2, 2015 on Nicktoons in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It premiered on Nickelodeon in France on April 13 and debuted on Gulli in late 2015.
The series tracks the exploits of Blake Myers, an adventurous boy who is destined to one day become a space ranger who protects humanity from alien squirrels called "Squaliens". The Squaliens, however, are sent back in time to prevent Blake from fulfilling this destiny.
- Terrible and annoying voice acting even from voice actors like Robbie Daymond.
- The main characters, Blake and Mitch, can be very annoying at times.
- Weird and nonsensical plot. How does Blake even become a space ranger?
- Pathetic villains called Squaliens. The main villain's name is Squeal, no joke!
- Misshapen character designs that look like they were stolen from Butch Hartman's The Fairly OddParents and Todd Kauffman and Joey So's Sidekick.
- Most of the episodes can get boring really quickly.
- The animation (despite being good) can be a little stiff at times with several animation errors being present.
- Poor lip syncing. (Mainly due to the animation or the show was originally in French).
- It's a poor clone of Kid vs. Kat, right down to the "kid vs. alien animal" theme and art style.
- Similar to Mysticons, the airing schedule in the U.S was slightly (but not terribly) weird.
- The Squaliens say "Get Blake!" a lot, which can get very annoying.
- The Squaliens are like rip-offs of the Cockroaches from Oggy and the Cockroaches, down to the design and personalities.
- Stupid ending in "Get Zombies!", where Blake states "Gamers get rid off their consoles after they finish their games", which is nonsensical and false. Then Blake and Mitch tie their console into a big firework and make it explode.
- All of the episode titles (except for the finale episode) start with "Get", and then another word, which is very uncreative.
- They sometimes use cringe-worthy and 1960s-esque sound effects, which does not fit at all.
- The series ended off on a cliffhanger without any continuation at all: Once Blake sends the Squaliens back to space, Leonard manages to escape and stay on earth to capture Blake all by himself as he follows Blake home, but the series ends right here, as Nick barely advertised the series and seemed content to let it die.
- The animation is smooth, and the backgrounds are neat.
- Some jokes are decent.
- Nice music, including the theme song.
- Blake and Mitch aren't annoying all the time.
- Relatable main characters.
- A few good episodes.
