Storyline

Ian Kelly is a 12-year-old kid with a kind of imagination that goes "cut" in the night. He thinks that his life is a stage and that he is the director! With his Spielberg-like imagination, he often tends to get himself into many strange situations! But somehow he manages to walk away from each "set" with a sense of acomplishment, or a detention!

One of my absolute favourite cartoons
9 February 2018 | by cdoerksenSee all my reviews

Ever since I started watching Being Ian, I was inspired to create movies, TV shows, and cartoons. I have no doubts that this is one of my favourite shows, alongside The Big Bang Theory, SpongeBob SquarePants, Family Guy, Phineas and Ferb, and several more. Ian Kelley is an optimistic kid who is fascinated with TV and, most commonly, films, which inspired me. Another thing interesting about this show is the fact that some scenes spoof such films as Disney's Pinocchio, Tron, Star Wars, and even King Kong. I also found the show on YouTube, and it is just as PHENOMENAL as the other great shows I watched. In my opinion, this is Jimmy Neutron mixed with Canadian elements. This is why any day, I'll watch an episode of a great Canadian cartoon like Being Ian over an episode of an extremely abysmal cartoon like Caillou. This is why I rated this one 10 out of Infinity and Beyond!
