Trivia

The show was pitched to the BBC back in 1989, but it was turned down due to the animation being too complicated to achieve. But the show was pitched again in the early 2000's, since it was possible for the animation to be done on computers. See more »

Animated genius
9 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the launch programmes when BBC3 launched in 2003, "Monkey Dust" is an animated sketch show, that looks at the everyday goings on in Britain after dark. Unlike other shows such as "2DTV", the material contained in Monkey Dust is dark, twisted, disturbing and sometimes slightly offensive, a "mature" cartoon if you like. But the characters you soon warm to, and you realise this is all just so original! The first time cottager, the chatroom pervert, Colin The Liar, Ivan Dobsky the Meat Safe Murderer (found not guilty after 27 years in prison), David Baddiel, the Yuppies; yet you realise that these are all wittily based on real people in the sick twisted country we call Britain today (apart from David Baddiel, who actually is a real person). The sketches all seamlessly blend into each other, but thankfully don't suffer the problem of being too long, as found in the most recent series. Anyone with a dark, satirical sense of humour will love this, its almost the animated version of Little Britain.
