Trivia

Terry Gilliam's animation contributions for this series were the opening and closing credits. The opening was a production line making identical looking mannequins/men, one eventually gets Marty's head, and is ejected into a rubbish bin. (This sequence appears in Gilliam's "Animations of Mortality" book.). The closing credits were various people saying "Good Bye!" and having horrible things happen to them. (i.e. A train conductor pulls a level and gets run over by a train, Mickey Mouse-type thingy gets smashed in a rat trap, etc... ) See more »

Hilariously funny, wildly creative!
31 October 1999 | by mcdaraSee all my reviews

This show was shown here in the states long before Monty Python. Terry Gilliams cartoons and this wild sort of humor was very new at the time this show came out. I found it very very funny and often wondered if someone would someday make these shows available again for viewing/buying.
