Review: F.E.R.R.A.R.I. Boyz
As a child of the 1980s, Saturday Morning Cartoons were my jam. I remember waking up earlier on Saturdays than on school days so that I wouldn’t miss my favorite shows. As I grew older, this type of programming started to dissipate year after year. But decades later, some of the cartoons from that era still feel fresh in people’s minds.
In the latter years before the premise’s demise, it started to “jump the shark” and use different celebrity fueled cartoons. I remember one of the first ones being Mr. T’s cartoon which was running the same time The A-Team was on the air and made for an interesting comparison. Then there was Kid N Play’s cartoon which was mediocre at best, but I always wondered if they sprinkled in some of their more interesting elements of the rest of the Saturday Morning Cartoons in it, what kind of show it would be? In the F.E.R.R.A.R.I. Boyz , we find the rappers Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame in a fantastic fanfiction that has the two rappers eluding shadowing organizations and saving the world.
We’re taken to a secret meeting in DC, where President Barack Obama is holding court with a scientist advising the president that an asteroid is headed to Earth. This prompts POTUS to call the FERRARI Boyz into action. Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane, after a few hilarious missteps, blast off into space to find things are more hopeless than expected as they walk into a trap. The two are endlessly tortured by the story’s villain, the Canadian rapper, Drake, who lured both of them to get rid of his competition. From there it’s superpowered villains and Nikki Minaj robots as the two rappers attempt to destroy the asteroid and save the planet.
Overall, a more than enjoyable fanfiction adventure with some famous figures that will have you laughing hard at both the material. The story by Kenny Keil is very funny and is worthy of more love from the industry. The art by Keil is gorgeous. Altogether, a comic that more than deserves to be included with all the great adventures included in Saturday Morning Cartoons.
