BRILLIANT!, 1 July 2004
Author: roopandtrace

Noel Fielding and Julian Barret have created a masterpiece of comedy writing, acting, directing, etc. Julian provides the show's music, as well as being the star/writer and Noel draws the animation. It is full of silly and surreal characters, like Bollo the guitar playing gorilla, the sinister hitch-hiker, or Brian Ferry lord of the forests. It may not be to everybody's taste. The series is set in a strange zoo, run by Bob Fossil, played by Richard Fulcher, from the sketch show Unatural Acts. Daily Mail readers or more conservative style people. It is very very silly, and many people will not like it. But, hopefully it will be a Little Britain style hit. Each episode involves Barret, named Howard Moon in the series, gets into trouble and travels to some strange world, Then Fielding's character Vince Noir, rescues him with help from some bizarre new character.

Episode One is KILLEROO. Howard Moon is asked by Bob Fossil, the zoo's owner, to participate in an illegal boxing match against a deadly kangaroo, and Vince tries to train him Episode Two is MUTANTS. Howard discovers that Dixon Bainbridge, the zoo's landlord, is cutting up animals and splicing then together. Can Howard save the animals? Episode Three is BOLLO. Vince's best animal friend Bollo the gorilla becomes ill, and so Howard dresses up as a gorilla to entertain people. the monkey grim reaper accidentally takes Howard to monkey hell... Episode Four is Tundra. This episode is adapted from the Boosh's stage show Arctic Boosh. Howard and Vince set out to the Arctic in search for the mystical Egg of Mantumbi. They meet mysterious dwarfs in Parkas and a dancing polar bear. Episode Five is Jungle. Howard and Vince trape off to the jungle to find the zoo's old owner Tommy, who's mind has been destroyed by a cheese addiction. Episode Six is Charlie. Vince and Howard both try and become writers. But, Vince is published and Howard is not. Little does Dixon Bainbridge know, but stealing Vince's fame is a bad idea. Episode Seven is Electro. Vince joins a band called Kraftwork Orange, with Johnny two hats and the electro sisters. But, Howard cannot join them, as he sold his soul to the spirit of Jazz. Episode Eight is Hitcher. Howard and Vince are asked to drive a nasty bair to an animal prison, and are instructed not to pick up the scary hitch-hiker... The Boosh is definitely for you if you like the League of Gentlemen or the Simpsons. Watch it on BBC3 or BBC2.
