Nothing like it on TV since
6 July 2005 | by (Chicago, United States) – See all my reviews

While I don't have a whole lot to say about this show, I just didn't want the only commentary on it to be a negative rant. I feel that Cartoon Sushi was a more than worthy successor to Liquid Television, if not better. It was simply geared to a different audience. I think one's problem with cartoon sushi is that while Liquid Television was geared simply more towards the MTV audience, Cartoon Sushi felt like it was an animation festival on TV. Indeed, many shorts that appeared on Cartoon Sushi were also featured in the Spike & Mike festival of animation, Fast Driver and various works by Bill Plympton to name a few. I haven't seen it replayed since it was taken off of the air, but for some reason it has always remained present in the back of my mind. A simple DVD that encompassed the entire 13 episodes would be greatly appreciated.
