Do not be fooled! 12 Oz Mouse is a chronology series that follows Mouse Fitzgerald, an alcoholic 12 Oz Mouse who has amnesia and a "crime personality", as he ventures through a dysfunctional, broken, and crudely animated world with dark and mysterious secrets linked to his past. Nothing is what it seems.

Did You Know?


In the pilot, only the letters "oz.MO" appear in the opening title sequence. But it was discovered that "Ozmo" is the name of an educational cartoon character produced by the BBC. To avoid a potential lawsuit, all subsequent episodes have the full title in the opening credits. See more »

User Reviews

2 January 2006 | by tokyotowerfallingdownSee all my reviews

Glance at this show on the surface and what do you see? Dialogue that sounds like it was recorded during a weed session and animation that looks like it was drawn by a 4-year-old on drugs.

But dig a little further, keep your eyes and your mind open, and you'll find something deeper. The show is not 100% spontaneous nonsense. The entire series is connected in an ongoing and ever-growing story arc, with each episode picking up where the previous one left off. Such a sense of continuity and development in writing is especially uncommon for a 15-minute comedy series on Adult Swim. But it's the style of the comedy itself that really takes it over. It's expressed in a post-modern existentialist manner, a sort of Seinfeld meets David Lynch meets Home Movies hybrid.

The low-tech style of the animation, the surprising depth of the writing, and the very achievement of the execution make the show nothing short of brilliant.
