Quotes

Gary: [as he's picking up things that can't be seen] Bye-bye! Bye-bye! Bye-bye!
The Sheriff: Gary, what are you doing?
Gary: Oh, I'm saying goodbye to the germs, sir. They're going out of the bin, and into the rubbish tip where they can make new friends in a totally different environment.
The Sheriff: So it's more of a club 18-30s than a rubbish tip, is it, Gary?
Gary: Yes, sir.
The Sheriff: Wrong!
[sprays a can of disinfectant]
The Sheriff: It's a funeral parlour! Gary, sometimes you're as stupidly sentimental as an Australian Soap Opera. Now get this place tidied...

why I'm obsessed with this awesome series
9 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

This show in my opinion was simply the best that ever was created. It is just so funny! Its absolute genius! The songs crack me up the most, my personal favorite being 'the story of workflop' from 'Voyage to the Bottom of the Forest'. The bit in the middle 'and he and his cohorts will bear down upon you like avenging angels - and you won't like it very much' I'm probably still laughing about it as you read this. And the bit 'while she went out on all night raves' with the witch raving. The only thing is, my friends barely even remember the show. Is there anybody out there who loves it as much as I do? Email me!

Rabies: 'ahhh its a giant loaf' Marian: 'no its a giant loafer'

Rock on !
