\"Empower Failure\": High schooler Kevin Grant-Gomez is not very thrilled about having to drive his little sister, Gretel, everywhere she has to go. One day, Kevin and Gretel are visited by aliens, who bestow superpowers on the siblings to use for good. Kevin is excited about having superpowers but becomes less so when it is revealed shortly after that he was passed over for superpowers by the aliens in favor of Gretel's pet hamster, Hamster. As time goes by, Kevin becomes very overprotective of Gretel despite her now having superpowers, which she tends to overuse.
Brandon Zachary of CBR.com stated, \"Hamster & Gretel delivers a new take on a lot of well-worn genres from Disney Animation. It's quietly a solid parody of superhero narratives, with one of the minds behind Phineas and Ferb helping usher in a new generation of bizarre heroes and villains. It's a down-to-earth cartoon sitcom focusing on a multicultural family dealing with some absurd situations. It's also a show where a hamster sometimes punches adults into submission -- a very silly direction that was very much by design.\"
The series features siblings the perky Gretel Grant-Gomez and overprotective older brother, Kevin, and Gretel's pet hamster named Hamster. On their birthdays after Kevin gets his driver's license, the siblings are visited by space aliens whose UFO bestows them superpowers. However, Kevin's powers accidentally go into Hamster instead, and they form the duo of \"Hamster & Gretel\". Now Kevin must figure out how to work with both Gretel and Hamster to protect their city from mysterious dangers.
