User Reviews

In the proud tradition of 60's cartoons, let's hear it for the trippiest genie of them all, put down your bongs and give it up for Shazzan!

I gotta admit, this show is a guilty pleasure. Shazzan's jolly demenor, cool goatee and quotable "Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho!" in the face of any situation is irresistable. Only in the sixties could you get away with stuff like this. Every badguy in the show is Shrill-voiced bong-smoker who, invariably, is green. And Shazzan's approach to problem solving is priceless:

Green sultan calls up flying monkeys, Shazzan turns the monkeys into bugs, Sultan turns the bugs into screeching harpies, Shazzan turns the harpies into cheese, and so on...

You gotta wonder if this is a kids' cartoon or a relaistic depiction of what Joe Barbera actually thought he was seeing. If you haven't seen it yet, and it's on, you could do far worse than to spend an afternoon with Shazzan.
