Too bad Cartoon Network didn't make a series on this great short
16 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

There's five series on Cartoon Network that were given their first shot on TV on the What a Cartoon Show. Those five would be Dexter's Lab, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, and the Powerpuff Girls. However, from the majority of the 50+ cartoons from the WAC, Larry and Steve was probably the most deserving of receiving it's own series (despite the fact it never did.) It stars a dog named Steve, who's practically all out of luck when the cartoon starts. He's in the kennel and just about to be put to sleep, for good. Fortunately (or maybe more unfortunately,) a guy named Larry walks into the kennel looking for a new pet, and he can actually what Steve is saying! The irony of the situation is that Larry is a total imbecile, yet he's the only one who can understand Steve's English. Impressed, Larry purchases Steve, and in the the words of Steve himself "thus began the ugliest day of my life." Larry lives in (Q)uality Apartments, and right after Larry gives Steve a room, all the appliances suddenly brake. Larry's too dumb to know what they should do, so Steve has to give him a clue: go shopping (to which Larry responds "Yeah that's what I was thinking!")

Well, I better not spoil the entire cartoon, but I can tell you it's a great one! It's unfortunate that this cartoon never became popular and received it's own series a la Cow and Chicken or Courage the Cowardly Dog. Another trait I found impressive about this short little cartoon is that it was written by Seth McFarlene, who not only does 8 out of 10 voices or so on Larry and Steve, but also does the voices for 6 characters on the much more popular Family Guy! And believe me, you can tell the similarity between Peter and Larry's voice ^_^
