Dark, slick, surreal and very very nasty.
1 December 2003 | by (winchester, england) – See all my reviews

Monkey dust is not a show you should let your kids watch. Or your parents. In fact, Monkey Dust is pretty much unsuitable for everyone. Basically, It makes South Park look like Scooby-Doo.

Its a very fast-paced cartoon sketch show, mostly set in london, its all very grim and bleak. Topics it covers include Pedophilia, suicide, child murder, and the Nazis. The funniest moment so far was "The Diary of Anne Frank" as made by Jerry Bruckenheimer. Its not pure comic genius, its dirty, dark and filthy comic genius.

Its compulsive viewing if you're into stuff like Brass Eye, Big Train or Jam. I cannot recommend it enough.
