one of the best most underrated cartoon shows ever
Network executives made a huge error by putting this on the Saturday morning roster because the humor was so fresh, biting, witty, and sharp that it was WAY over kids' heads. And THAT is the reason it disappeared after only one season. This was a phenomenally clever show and if it ever comes out on DVD I will be one of the first to grab it, immediately.
The wit and zingers are fast and furious here and along with Ren and Stimpy and, on many occasions, the Simpsons, this should be counted as the best use of animation in a series for TV. But definitely, as mentioned, not for kiddies. I mean, let's face it. There was actually a total BABE in this show whose beautiful chest was definitely noticeable. Is THAT a kid's cartoon show character??? I think not.
I was sad to see this go, just as I was sad to see Ren and Stimpy go, and also another show, not animated, Get A Life with Chris Elliot which, luckily, WAS released on DVD--at least eight of the episodes anyway. Zany TV shows that poke fun at social conventions don't last. That's really too bad. It's too bad the majority of the public wants safe pablum to swallow like so much warm mush which they just dribble all over themselves. The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley was one of those shows that, rather than being warm bland tasteless mush, had some real kick, zing, and bite.
It's sorely missed.
