O-M-Squee! Laura Marano took a minor cartoon character and made her bigger than life!
24 May 2015 | by Ddey65See all my reviews

Just when I thought Laura Marano couldn't charm my socks off anymore than she already has on "Austin & Ally," along comes some voice-work for a minor character on "Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja," a cartoon I admit I never really got into. Far from a cultural phenomenon, there are still people who are really into it, including a young girl from Michigan named Morghan Prude who wrote a song about the main character, and besides Marano, it's this song that makes part of the episode so great.

In "Wonkin' for the Weekend" (obviously a pun on the Loverboy song), due to some of the battles between Cunningham and other forces that try to destroy the town, the kids are forced to go to school on Saturday, and everybody blames it on him, including his dumber sidekick Howard Weinermann who drinks a bottle of "McBubbleSlam" and suddenly becomes a super-genius. Cunningham tries to use his friend's newfound intellect to get out of class, something the NinjaNomicon warns him not to do, but he doesn't listen. Of course even if he had, he can't seem to do that much about it until Weinermann makes a box that creates a black hole. Now he has no other choice but to try to take down his friend... without killing him, of course.

Just like the classic Warner Brother's cartoon "A Corny Concerto," the second segment of the episode proves to be far superior to the first, entirely because of Marano's singing. "Ninjafan" starts off at some video arcade (I didn't know those still existed), where Weinermann is using Cunningham to get him money and snacks. Suddenly as he's getting him more of those snacks, he finds that the "food hole" has been turned into a beatnik club, and on stage at the club happens to be Rachel, one of the girls from the school band who is voiced by Marano. It's then we hear that song written by Miss Prude, and to quote Randy "That's the most beautiful thing I've ever heard." That's when he decides to reveal himself and transform into Rachels new hero. Unfortunately, he ends up doing the same thing to her that his best friend was doing to him at the beginning of the episode, and it almost gets him in trouble.

Disney had better release the full song, one way or another. I'm not sure how they'd do something like that other than on some kind of compilation album, and this is coming from somebody who hasn't had any Disney music since the "It's a Small World" 45 RPM record way back when I was a kid. Be that as it may, it has made me consider watching some RC9GN reruns, and not just the ones with Rachel.
