Following the tradition of MTV's previous animation show Liquid Television, this was the show that followed a few years later was basically a collection of various animated shorts made a variety of different cartoonists.
Animated clay figures Johnny Gomez and Nick Diamond host this show, which features a series of no holds barred, to-the-death wrestling matches between animated celebrities. Past matches include Marilyn Manson vs. Charles Manson, The Three Tenors vs. the Three Stooges, Howard Stern vs. Kathy Lee Gifford, and Mary-Kate vs. Ashley. The referee for each match is the unflappable Judge Mills Lane. Written by
Though the show has long since been canceled, it did spawn a video game adaptation. See more »
In the fight between Billy Corgan, Dave Grohl, and Courtney Love, a giant dome is closed over the ring and Mills Lane steps outside just before it closes. Shortly thereafter, he is seen inside the ring to stay "Let's get it on." See more »
Along with MTV's animated shows, such as Beavis and Butt-head and Daria, this show is equally enjoyable. Much better than the sock duo, Sifl and Olly. It's fun watching celebrity look-alikes beat the crap... uh, clay out of each other. Mills Lane lends his voice to the referee as himself. Before every match he repeats his famous quote, "Let's get it on!" Note to parents: it's only clay, so ignore that TV14 rating and sit back with your kids and watch your favorite celebrities slug it out. My evaluation: B+.
