Gonzo animation, tobacco pie and Christmas!
13 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recorded this show when it first ran on Nickelodeon and watched it countless times over Christmas and school vacation over the years. No matter how many times I saw it it always seemed fresh, there was so much strange stuff happening. Some gags I got right away- when Muffet meets Sidney the Spider, she's basically walking into the last scene of every Merrie Melodies cartoon, where all the citizens mobilize to beat up the bad guy who kidnapped the hero's girlfriend. But I never got the joke (or the irony) about the Christmas Tree, Mr Tannenbaum, being Jewish until I was much older. If Tattertown had been picked up it would perhaps have jump-started the adult animation boom that The Simpsons and Ren & Stimpy eventually pioneered.

Anyway, some others complain the characters are undeveloped but this was a pilot. Also, sometimes Bakshi just rolls that way. I'd rather watch a cartoon with amazing animation that makes me laugh anyway. I think this is actually one of Bakshi's best productions, I enjoyed it way more than Wizards or LOTR.
