Not all bad, there were a few gems!
30 May 2005 | by (Fowler, CA) – See all my reviews

While I agree that quite a few of the shorts here were a little too over-the-top, I remember this series fondly because of the handful of great ones. The funniest, in my opinion was "Science Facts: Broccoli has an IQ of 10". I'd buy a DVD for the broccoli shorts alone. I also enjoyed "Ultracity 6060: Fast Driver", which poked fun at Speed Racer and other Americanized anime, as well as "The Champ in: Snapper Bob", which was based on a radio show, "Call Me Fishmael", "Telekinesis" (levitating cows!), "Killing Heinz" (great music), and, oh yeah, can't forget "Fishbar: Evil babies in Colorado"! Cartoon Sushi also spawned its own spin off series in "Celebrity Deathmatch". It's too bad there aren't more outlets for short animation. I miss Cartoon Sushi and Liquid TV!
