Did You Know?


David Feiss' name appears in two episodes. In "Happy Baboon Holidays" (Season 1) it is written on a wall behind I.R.'s trailer, when we first see it. And once again, in "I Am Franken-Weasel" (Season 5) "Feiss" is written on one of the headstones in the cemetery, when I.R. goes to "get a fresh body". See more »

Even better than Cow and Chicken
30 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That is not to knock Cow and Chicken because that is still a great show, but I've always had a preference for I Am Weasel. While Cow and Chicken may be more accessible to a younger audience, having more innocence, I Am Weasel takes everything that was so good about Cow and Chicken's humour- admittedly though a kind of humour that is not everybody's cup of tea- and does so in a way that will appeal to pretty much anybody regardless of age. I Am Weasel definitely could have lasted longer than it did, but there is very little to complain about the show providing that you don't have a problem with the humour. The animation is in a very similar style to Cow and Chicken in terms of colours and drawing style- one that is unlike what has been seen before or since in a way- with the character designs matching their personalities perfectly and the colours while not as colourful as other cartoons tasteful and distinctive. The music is quirky and dynamic with a theme tune that has no problem in being memorable not to mention listenable, not a favourite of mine but a long way from irritating. The writing is very clever and almost always hilarious, the very unique humour is random and can get rude but never in an offensive way and there is evidence of heart- even when it doesn't have the same level of innocence as Cow and Chicken- without being too sugary. The dialogue is brilliant and there are a number of lines that are some of the quotable of any Cartoon Network show. The stories and ideas of the show just fly by pace-wise without being rushed, none of them are predictable with the unexpected turns in the writing making things fresh and the references are ones that adults will get with no problem and don't come off as blatant. The dynamic/relationships between the characters are another component that I Am Weasel does so well, the polar opposite personality idea is not much new but is that really an issue, not to me. And the characters themselves are pretty iconic for Cartoon Network, especially the Red Guy, who is hilariously gross and crazy. While IM Weasel is the most likable and cleverest character, the polar opposite of IR Baboon who is a still endearing character but is one so stupid that he makes Pinky from Pinky and the Brain seem like Einstein. Michael Dorn does a wonderful job as Weasel but Charlie Adler(one of the most prolific contemporary voice actors and a talented one) is even better, Baboon and Red Guy are perhaps funnier and more colourful characters and that is largely thanks to Adler. To conclude, not one of Cartoon Network's best ever shows but a truly excellent one and, because the show is rarely talked about now it seems, it does deserve to be better known than it is. 9/10 Bethany Cox
