Orel Puppington is an optimistic, well-intentioned, and devoutly religious 11-year-old whose Christian devotion, enthusiastic church attendance, and general naiveté leads him to grossly misinterpret Bible lessons, often with morbid and ghastly consequences. In doing so, he unintentionally exposes the hypocrisy and duplicity of his family (particularly his father Clay), the members of his community, and ultimately, organized religion itself. Set in the fictional American state of Statesoda, which is located in the middle of the lower 48 states, "Moral Orel" has a stop-motion animation style similar to "Davey & Goliath", and appears to parody the religious undertones of the latter show. However, creator Dino Stamatopoulos intended for the show to be more of a parody of whole 1950's sitcoms such as "Leave It To Beaver" and "Father Knows Best". Written by D_Burke

User Reviews

Don't listen to the other reviews, Moral Orel is one of the best new shows on adult swim
4 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many people say that adult swim is losing its touch with brand new shows like Perfect Hair Forever and Squidbillies but I see it as a new direction. Moral Orel is adult swim's newest show. Animated using claymation, this show is about a young boy named Orel and his troubles growing up Christain. This show uses offensive humor sort of like South Park which is the main cause of the negative feedback but the show feels innocent and with that brand of offensive humor brings hilarious results. If you like twisted situations and claymation you should watch Moral Orel. If your a big baby that gets offended by this sorta humor Moral Orel is defiantly not for you. 8/10
