Welcome to "Matthew Rants", and boy it has been a long time since I ranted a lot. Today I will rant about this dreadful British cartoon. In Britain it was known as "Dennis and Gnasher". It appeared on those Beano comics in Britain. It never came to the U.S. of A until 2005. It appeared on PBS Sprout On Demand. (Look before I continue I did it once and only once. I never watch PBS or it's infantile counterparts. It just came out of curiosity.) As I watched it, it was so predictable. Dennis (a kid with black bushy hair and a red and black shirt with horizontal stripes) sound like Numbuh 4 when he talks. Gnasher is a Ruff clone except he is looking kind of like a hybrid between a rat and a bear or weasel and a cat. Something like that. He is one hell of a trouble-maker. Worst of all he flirts with the ladies! His parents try to discipline him and make him end up taking a hair cut. OK This one contains a spoiler. He escapes this barber named Slasher Brown (sounds like something off from a horror film). He escapes him and Brown sends an army of barbers to capture him and have his hair cut. As Dennis and Gnasher are being chased across the road, kids are rooting for him and encouraging him! Naturally, in the end, he looses and a policeman searches for the delinquent, something like that. I can't tell you any more about this. After this was over, I checked out other episodes on demand and read descriptions of them, BUT DIDN'T WATCH THEM. I clicked the exit button of my remote and boy was I bothered, turned to Cartoon Network and my wounds were healed thanks to THE HI HI PUFFY AMIYUMI SHOW. A few months later I didn't see this show on demand. Thank God! Because I think parents wrote letters to PBS Sprout and it got taken off the air or a lack of interest. Whatever it is, he is nothing but trouble. I don't watch PBS sprout keep in mind. Parents do your future of your children a favor and don't let them watch it, because this is one of those cartoons where a trouble-making character drives people bananas and gives growing up and maturity a bad name. So, avoid it like the plague.
