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.

Wonderful Humor.
26 January 2014 | by b-doranSee all my reviews

This is an extremely silly show that tends to stretch the imaginations out quite far. It's humor is fun and entertaining and I enjoy the episodes time and time again. Not to mention the claymation is gorgeous. Aardman has done a fantastic job on this one just like all of it's others, yet this seems to be an undiscovered treasure for most. For such a goofy show, a lot of time went into the atmospheres created around Rex and his friends and its truly a marvel to behold. Unfortunately there seem to only be two seasons of the show seeing as I would own them all if there were more. If you are interested in claymation, animation, or stopmotion as I am, these are an absolute must. If you enjoy this check out Aardmans other work and their feature films like Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, and Pirates Band of Misfits.
