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

A small statuette often seen in Dr. Katz's office is of a woman in a flowing dress playing ping pong, with the motto "Di nos quasi pilas homines habent". The motto is Latin for "the gods treat us mortals like so many balls to play with", from the Roman playwright Titus Maccius Plautus (254-184 BC). See more »

What happened to this show?
8 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was a great show, there was little if anything funnier than this show. I loved it. The reason it was cancelled in my opinion was like many other shows it was moved around too much. The show originally came on Sunday at 10:00 the same night as the Simpsons. Then I think it was moved to Monday. This was classic stuff.

The concept was simple and very funny. Dr. Katz was a psychiatrist whose patients were actual comedians. The trick was it was all animated and was done in a very strange squiggle vision, which was pretty cool. Also in the show were Dr. Katz's cynical receptionist Laura and his son, Ben. There are so many classic lines in this show. Ben was incredibly lazy, and once wanted to order some Guinea Pigs that were as he put it…. 49.95….95.

There was also Dr. Katz saying that if you drank a cup of your own urine that you would be healthy because you would be taking many anti-bodies, the only downside was pee-pee breath. This was such a good show I miss it. Rodney Dangerfield once was on this show, I am a huge Dangerfield fan and I missed it. Still if you can find this show watch it every time I watched it I was falling on the floor laughing.
