Rex: Ah, there now, you see, this looks like Vince's frontal lobe. I reckon that Random Pavarotti Disease is a psychological phenomena and that we should be able to locate it in the otherworldliness of his brain.
Bad Bob: Ow, rubbish! I reckon his disease is a physical problem. Let's go and look at his bum.

Very funny and entertaining, though it is a bit odd.
1 August 2006 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

I found all 26 episodes of this clay animated show to be entertaining, but I just wonder who could come up with this? It is so odd. Many of the plots involve really weird and confusing things, like making a hole in the Earth where it gets small like a balloon. The characters are Rex, the host of the show who always starts the show saying, "I'm Rex, and welcome to my life.". Wendy is the wanna be attractive dog with small breasts. Bad Bob is the eye patched "tough guy" who is actually quite a chicken. Vince is almost retarded and had Random Paparazzi syndrome which makes him randomly sing opera. Other characters include Dr. Dogg, the evil scientist who'll do anything to get rich and Arthur Duskart, the garbage man with the long nose hairs. It's a good show if you take it for what it is.

My rating: ***/****. 12 mins. TVPG to TV14.
