Crazy Credits

There is a slight dialogue change after the first eight eps and the show was moved to an earlier time, Originally, Gary first sees himself as a rat in his mirror and screams in horror, then mutters under his breath, "Gary the Rat. Shit." This line is changed when the word 'shit' is replaced by a rather hurriedly said "This just sucks". This dialogue may have been taken from the episode where Gary is trying to find a date for a business party. See more »

I Agree Man
23 April 2007 | by runmunkeyrunSee all my reviews

I agree with you , absolute genius. I live way out in NZ and i sat up till 2am to watch this show having to sit through boring drama like Alias and the like...

Not many TV aired cartoon's come along very often with the genius of this show.

Pure filth and UN-adulterated fun for 15 and upward i'd say

I'm pretty sure i caught every episode, and couldn't wait for the next week when Gary would return wit more exploit's.

Bring Back Gary!!

Gary the Rat............Sh*t
