great pilot!
11 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

what an oddly hilarious first episode. at first i just had fun figuring who was voicing who (i think the guy who voiced the idi amin-esquire character was in an aqua teens episode), but then came a scene where an old lady character (the 'mother' of the freaks) started listing off all these crazy, 27 world long names of her famous home made desserts in this ridiculous old lady voice done by (i am pretty sure) a man. my roommate and i were laughing so hard we were literally crying... and i have no idea why it was so incredibly funny, except that it was. you have to watch it. the whole episode was very good, i am interested to see where it will go. i am not sure if robert smigel is involved, but the animation style seems similar to his, if he isn't.

i am never a particularly committed fan of cable channel cartoons, but i will be sticking with this one for a bit. i mean, tobias and gob back together again? how could i resist?
