Gory animated goodness
16 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

For the purposes of this comment, the version I watched was the European (region 2) DVD of this first volume.

I caught one of these on late night TV, probably as I was hopping to BBC Parliament (don't ask), so it made a pleasant change :) Next time I was in the video store, I was chuffed to see this, though it only caught my eye as I was passing the kids' videos. (why does animated automatically = kids?) (I mean STILL?). The concept is simple: Cute, fluffy bun-bun and friends get decapitated in a variety of ways. Lots of lovely gore, lots of Grade A screaming from the voice actors and actress. Sweet.

I think I'm right in saying that the total content of this DVD only lasts less than an hour. That and the fact that the intro and ending of each 'toon' are included, stretching the viewing time with the same ending over and over. The intros include the name of the sketch and the characters in the sketch, so I can see why they should be left in, but the only different aspects of the endings are the 'thought for the day' suggestions, like 'don't forget to floss' etc. They're funny, but I'd have rather just seen the thought for the day, then onto the next intro. The last sketch could've then had the full credits.

I wouldn't recommend paying more than about £8 (or equivalent) for this disc, as it's pretty short, however: These are great for winding down. No plot, no 'back story', no nothing. Just a cute and happy scene suddenly splattered with gore and intestines. Also, the DVD extras are brilliant, 12 animated shorts of 4 of the character getting geeked in even more varied ways.

There's nothing here that'd satisfy gorehounds, but for those who REALLY need something to take the edge off their stress levels, this could be just the ticket.
