What A fantastic show I must say
2 May 2001 | by edewaalSee all my reviews

This has to be the single funniest Saturday morning cartoon ever. It should have run in prime-time. The Show follows Martin Shorts genius character through some of the craziest adventures ever. In one episode he goes into outerspace to cook a Tuna Casserole for some aliens who are going to destroy the earth if they don't get a good Casserole. It is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
