Two episodes have Jay kissing Alice before the credits start and as it ends, a theater usher tells them that the show is over and Alice says "Get lost pip-squeak". Jay then says "That's why I love her". See more »
I can't believe this only lasted a few years. This was, hands down, one of the best animated shows I have ever seen. The comedy was somewhat remniscent of "Sienfeld", the only differences being that "The Critic" is not painfully boring and actually has a plot to it.
The entire cast is given good lines, much kudos to the writers. And I love the cameos by Orson Welles. Especially the fishsticks thing.
"They're even better raw!"
