Best show about a six foot newt!
2 April 2001 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

There had never been a better show about a giant six foot newt harassing a big-eared child. And that speaks volumes!

"Ned's Newt" is one of those shows you never read about in the paper, but it's still one of the best animated television shows out there.

Ned is cute and all, he really is, but he doesn't hold a candle to the real star of the show - Newton the newt! This little purple entity can become hilariously funny once fed Zippo. And when that thing grows, there will be no end to the word play and the pop culture jokes. It's like seeing "The Mask" meet "Ren and Stimpy", only much much better.

So if you're looking for a laugh, look no further! It's not just an animated show, it's fun for kids and adults alike, only in different ways.

The kids will enjoy the fast pace animation and the slapstick humor, while as the adults will find references to Shakespeare and Bill Gates spleen rupturing hilarious!

See it!
