But replacing the talking pink toilet with a sarcastic, bitchy know-it-all girl? Good call. Ditching all the stupid, annoying talking cars? Also a very good call. Getting rid of the lame evil bad guys and the heavy-handed "ebil bad guys will pollute the Earth because they're eeeeebilllll!" theme? All steps in the right direction.

It's hardly perfect, and it's certainly not art. Green is still ridiculously annoying. But the rest of the characters seem to be an improvement over the original.

Color me surprised.
