Great show.
20 July 2003 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

As someone stated earlier, it can be disturbing in a way at times, but the episodes are always entertaining, clever and super-original. I haven't yet seen a single boring episode.

I love this show. I recommend it to anyone. Little kids might find a few episodes disturbing, but I think they'd like the show anyway. Adults will enjoy this show too.

Oh, and the music is great! I was watching an episode a few hours ago, and the music was worthy of any good horror movie. Thumbs up for whoever made the music. ;)

I give it 5 stars, definately!
