Storyline

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, eyes, and the like animated. However, the edges of the characters are in a constant state of zigzagging flux, and this gives the impression of movement. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The roots of the show trace to an independent animated short about a psychiatrist and his son. Titled "Shrink Wrap", it was created by Tom Snyder at his education-software company in Cambridge, Massachusetts before Snyder had anything at all to do with television. A friend in Los Angeles connected him with people in the industry, who were impressed enough with Shrink Wrap to want to develop it. They gave Snyder a list of experienced names in comedy as potential partners. One of them was Jonathan Katz, who happened to be Snyder's all-time favorite stand-up comedian. See more »

Amazing
30 October 2000 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

This is the most amazing animated series on TV at the moment. It's not just the humor, but the characters are ones that you can identify with and the animation is amazing. The surroundings are completely static (black and white and unmoving). The people are the only animations that move. It's like their outlines are permanently set to "vibrate". This is annoying to some people, but I think it's really great. Laura HAS to be the most amazing receptionist EVER! WATCH THIS SHOW!
