Great series - very clever & if you are a fan of cartoons you will love it
17 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

An inspired piece of modern cartoon making that takes you back. A dimwitted but just Attorney Superhero defends cartoon criminals - Shaggy & Scooby for drugs offenses, fred flintstone for his mob connections. Dark, adult and very funny. If you like classic cartoons and some subtle or bizzare humor, you will love it
