Tripping the Rift is a CGI science fiction comedy television series. The universe is modeled largely after the Star Trek universe, with references to "warp drive" and "transporter beam" technology, occasional time travel, the Federation and the Vulcans. The series also includes elements borrowed from other sources such as Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Battlestar Galactica. The general setting is that known space is politically divided between two superpowers: the Confederation (led by Humans, and a parody of the Federation from Star Trek) and the Dark Clown Empire (a parody of the Galactic Empire from Star Wars). The Dark Clown Empire is a totalitarian, tyrannical police state, led by the evil Darph Bobo. In contrast, the Confederation is technically a democratic and free society, but in practice, is dominated by mega-corporations and bloated bureaucracies. Ultimately, both superpowers end up exploiting and restricting their inhabitants, albeit in different ways. For example, ... Written by Anonymous

A funny and crude animated comedy that delivers what it promises.
20 August 2017 | by d-snake1See all my reviews

This is an animated sci-fi comedy featuring Chode McBlob, a purple outlaw space captain, and his crew as they adventure throughout space. His crew consists of Six, the ship's science officer and Chode's sex robot, T'Nuk, the ship's pilot and cook, Gus, the ship's butler and engineer, Whip, the ship's foreman, and Bob, the ship's AI. Chode and his crew are a for-hire crew whose jobs could range from smuggling to mercenary work to being a legitimate courier, but they frequently take time away from paying work to chase after get- rich-quick schemes.

The show's comedy revolves mainly around sex. In addition to sex jokes, there are many references to other science-fiction series throughout the show including but not limited to Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Battlestar Galactica. It also has references to many other novels, movies, and television series in other genres. Other humor involves body humor, puns, wordplay, relationship humor, dysfunctional family humor, and insult humor.

Overall, it's a fun 20-minute cartoon that works perfectly for watching right before bed or to have on in the background when doing something else.
