MR. SWLABR is an out-and-out children's episode of the MONSTERS TV show. It's as cheesy, dated, and annoying as any kid's TV programme from the 1980s, with little to recommend it to genuine horror fans or those looking for a nostalgia kick from the decade.
The very simplistic storyline sees a poor kid being browbeaten by his parents and forced to live in the basement. His troubles are answered when a toy from his cereal box comes to life. Mr. Swlabr is a lovable mini-dinosaur looking creation with a big attitude and a fine line in insults, and the rest of the episode is a running battle between him and the kid and the annoying parents.
It's all very silly, with lots of green goo being splattered around and a particularly poorly-animated glove puppet as the central character. It makes you wonder how these things passed for prime-time entertainment back in the day.
