Trivia

Principle animation/photography was done at the now-defunct Will Vinton Productions in Portland, Oregon. Although injection molded foam characters had been in use for some time, this was the first time it was used for a series television show. This choice was an easy one, since character turnover and the less likelihood of damage to them if they were clay, as well as the tight production schedule made the production run smoother and more budget friendly. Will Vinton Prod. pioneered the Claymation and colored foam molding techniques. Like the Plasticine clay still used, the foam color is throughout, making repairs easier and less noticeable than in clay. If damage was severe to clay characters, a replacement was almost certainly needed, causing costly production delays and down-time. Foam core character could be made in quantities and various poses/facial expressions, so scene changes were fast and easier. See more »

Genius !
15 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

We in the UK seem to come across little gem's like this years after our American friends, what with the show already cancelled in 2001 over there.

They have only recently started putting this on two episodes at a time on C4 in UK at 2am, and next week it sadly disappears from the schedules.

I have to say I love this programme as much as "The Simpson's", it's Eddie Murphy back to his best, as funny as he used to be back in his old standup shows in the 80's.

I only hope they bring this out on DVD, Sadly, they probably won't.
