The series finale was.....a pretty strange one.
30 October 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

After the 7th season being entirely filmed in England, the final episode goes back to all American...voices that is. This episode is a strange little cartoon rendition of The Three Little Pigs. Watching this, it has Ren and Stimpy like animation, and South Park-ish violence. In this version of the classic story, 2 of the pigs are brutally murdered by the wolf, and the smart pig Dudley is framed for murder. He escapes prison with the help of his brother's spirits and he builds a Frankenpig to help kill the wolf. As you can tell, this plot bounces all around from one place to another, but it isn't bad. The animation, though pretty bad, is funny and has a lot of great sight gags, and it's good the show didn't end on a normal English episode, and ended on a strange note.

My rating: *** out of ****. Contains violence and language. 25 mins.
