An unusual feature of Dr Katz is the novel animation technique called Squigglevision, whereby, essentially, there is no lateral movement by any of the characters or objects, with only lips,... See full summary »
H. Jon Benjamin,
An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.
Duckman isn't your average suave, sophisticated private eye. In fact, he's rude, ignorant, slovenly, and hasn't had a date in years. With the help of his infinitely more capable sidekick, Cornfed, Duckman manages to solve enough cases to cover his alimony payments and cable TV bills. Written by

Most of season four's episodes featured musical numbers to capitalize on Jason Alexander's Broadway success. See more »
[Duckman is outraged that his car has just been towed]
I can't believe they towed my car! And only because it was parked in a tow-away zone and I had $1,200 worth of unpaid parking tickets.
Also, you stole it.
It was dark. How was I supposed to tell the difference between a parking lot at the mall and a Mazda dealership?

One of the funniest, cleverest yet crudest animated shows you will see
There may be those who may not like the humour, but for me this is one of the best animated shows ever. It is crude yes, so was Rocko's Modern Life, but it is extremely funny, clever and intelligent.
The animation is very unique in style and just wonderful to watch. I just love the backgrounds and colours and the character designs are very interesting. The music is also excellent, and even better is the writing which is so brilliant and so sharp I can't stop laughing. The stories are also outstanding, as are the characters. Eric Duckman is a triumph of a title character, he isn't sophisticated but rude and ignorant yet has a wit and charm about him. Cornfred, Ajax and Mambo are also wonderful and even King Chicken(voiced by an unrecognisable Tim Curry) is a hoot. And the voice acting especially from Jason Alexander(who is funny rather than annoying, not him in person but he has done some annoying characters) is superb.
In conclusion, one brilliant show. 10/10 Bethany Cox
