When the young mouse, Max's family is killed by exterminators, he is forced to move to his Aunt's home under the White House in Washington D.C.. There he finds life more lively than he ever thought possible with his friends, the crusading Berkeley, the roguish Jammit, the frazzled and periodically exploding Muggle the Lab Rat, and Moze, the hip cockroach as they go about their lives in the US President's residence.

The right show at the wrong time
4 December 2010 | by (Dundee, Tayside, Scotland) – See all my reviews

'Capitol Critters' was one of those shows that couldn't compete with 'The Simpsons' and yet it was better animated and also very well written in places with plenty of risqué yet hilarious jokes. I found the show appealed to me because of the charming and serious drama scenes so very well going together with the jokes and comedy routines.

Perhaps 1992 wasn't the right time for it to come out; but if there was no Simpsons on the air at that time who knows whether it would have lasted longer than it did or not. The characters were certainly right for the time, and haven't aged at all. It doesn't tie itself to the 1990s so easily as some of it's contemporaries did; For example, The Simpsons (yep, them again!) 'Do The Bartman' scene was hip and trendy in 1991, but was clearly dated by the end of the decade; even the show itself pointed that out in one joke!

Capitol Critters' jokes were subtle in places and downright random in others, yet it all seemed to fit together nicely. Definitely not a kids show; more of a cartoon for adults ;) But I liked it.
