Awesome show!
8 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I completely disagree with the previous poster. While Liquid Television was groundbreaking and stands alone, this show was an awesome example of surrealism at it's best. Perfect for late night television. Sadly, it was severely underrated. The blind date sketch, Broccoli on the game show ("I am Broccoli!"), and Robin at the barbershop. Cartoon Sushi picked up where Liquid Television left off. It gave a great showcase to a lot of cartoons that otherwise would have gone under the radar (pre-internet explosion). It was great to see an outlet (pre-Cartoon Network) for demented animated humor. If you ever stumble across this show watch it!
