When "Boss" Hoss Heartshe dies, he bequeaths his town to his long-hidden and dim-witted son Hurlan, who has just been introduced to human society. Thus begins the bizarre and horrifying saga of Heartshe Holler.
An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.
Dino Stamatopoulos' Adult Swim follow-up to the masterful Moral Orel. This is also a stop-motion series. It doesn't hit the emotional heights of Orel, but it's pretty damn brilliant. An immortal Victor Frankenstein works as a mad scientist for any historical figures who arrive at his castle via Frankenholes. He helps Thomas Jefferson get a new penis, makes Gandhi a vampire and gets Jesus a new pair of socks. He often interacts with classic movie monsters, including Nosferatu, who only speaks in intertitles. A lot of crazy stuff here. The wit is super quick - it has to be with the classic Adult Swim 12 minute runtime. The voice acting is particularly great, and I especially love Andy Dick as Jesus. Probably the only time I'll ever say I like Andy Dick, but he really hits it out of the park with his performance in two episodes of this series. I don't know if this series is ever going to continue, but I hope it does. Too bad it was never popular and never got a proper DVD release. It's easily one of my favorite things that's ever been on Adult Swim.
