Spun off from the popular movies, Problem Child: The Animated Series was a show that ran for two seasons, starting in the fall of 1993. The show, much like the movies, followed the hijinks of Junior Healy and all the problems he caused for his parents. The series featured voice work by some that fans of other shows will also recognize. Junior is voiced by Ben Diskin, who also did voice work for the more recent Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon as well as voicing Eddie Brock in the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon. Cree Summer, Brad Garrett and Gilbert Gottfried also lent their talents to the show. Gottfried is the only actor to have a role in all three Problem Child movies and the animated series. Fans of the movies will find a lot to like here, as the animated series does not stray too far from the successful formula of either of the movies that preceded it.
