Storyline

An intense, hyperactive chihuahua (Is there any other kind?) and a happy-go-lucky, empty-brained cat share bizarre and often repulsive adventures. Their experiences usually involve hairballs, filthy litterboxes, "magic nose goblins", sentient farts, jars of spit, outhouses, eating dirt, monkey vermin and any other imaginable disgusting substance.

"Keep your stinkiness to yourself."
28 January 2008 | by haildevilmanSee all my reviews

Johnny K. drop kicked animation into the next phase when he created this masterpiece.

Non-stop non sequitors were all over the place. I couldn't stop laughing. And the situations seemed to be an ongoing contest of how unrealistic can we be. The deadpan deliveries added to the fun.

Kirsch lost the rights to this at one point and the new owners RUINED it. It became an abuse/gross-fest. So make sure you see the Spumco versions only.

The DVD has it all un-cut now. And it's still funnier than anything on today. Seth MacFarlane had to have been a fan.

This and the great "Liquid Television" deserve to be kept alive.
