Storyline

A look into the dysfunctional lives of a group of friends, in a typical American sitcom. But, there's a twist. It is a sort-of spoof of The Muppets, with HBO, UNCENSORED humor, with a lot pop-culture references. If South Park had a kid with Friends and The Muppets, this is it. Written by Harrison Seeley

A truly memorable experience
29 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first time I watched Mongrels I was instantly captivated. I always loved the muppets and other "puppet" TV shows when I was younger, and during my 20's I missed that feeling of inanimate objects projecting an unreal world that is so close to our own in feeling and depth.

I have rarely laughed so much before watching Mongrels, with it's on-the-edge sarcasm and casual use of inappropriate language and scenarios, which most older people might find offensive.

The fact is, the creators and animators and writers have found a pleasant and modern blend of comedy, puppetry and life dilemmas which make this show so addictive. If they don't commision another season then I will be devastated.

This show holds no bars, and is not for the faint hearted but it has certainly given me many, many laughs in it's first season.

Thank you to all who were involved in it's making :-)
