Trivia

In the cats vs. dogs segment that is meant to look like an old Civil War documentary, there's a group photo of cats with a banner that reads 5th Michigan Siamese Division "We Fight If We Please, Or If We Don't Please". The slogan is a direct reference to the 2 Siamese cats from Lady And The Tramp and their song (We Are Siamese If You Please, We Are Siamese If You Don't Please) See more »

Fantastic animation
23 August 2016 | by highlandersunSee all my reviews

These cartoons are for the person who is tired of the same things and wants a surreal look at the world. Animated in the widely known style of Gary Larson, this series will not disappoint a real Far Side fan. Filled of the great satire of these classic comic drawings, anyone who misses these series should watch it, as it carries the typical humor known to the lover of these comics throughout the series. Deeply involving a diverse outlook of life. The only downside I can see is a consistent similarity, but for someone who truly likes the series it shouldn't be a problem. Nostalgic, lovely and very original. For the lover of the macabre with a lighthearted twist.
