What the hell are you looking at?

Yes, my favorite tv series ever. My favorite animated series ever. It's finally, finally made it to DVD. And Greencine has it!

Today I went to the breakroom for lunch and a dude from Electronics was sitting at another table, beckoned me over. Somehow Ren & Stimpy showed up in the convo (I suspect because he's as random as I am). He said it was the best animated show ever..My natural argumentative response: A flat-toned "Duckman." Which is when he tells me the first and second season are in electronics. Imagine my shock! More than a decade after it first aired, it finally makes it to dvd. This is my Holy Grail. If I hadn't bought it already, I'd be renting it from GC right this moment!

Aside from nostalgia, Duckman is still a really good series. 773 votes on IMDb says it's an 8.1! Okay, votes say next to nothing about how good film is...But if you haven't seen it before, now's the time. The weird thing is, a lot of what they say is still valid on today's issues. Case in point:

Cornfed: Once again, the U.S. is spending millions to oust a puppet they spent millions to get into office. They'll spend more millions on the coverup to hide having spent those millions and even more millions to discredit members of the media who report otherwise. It's a good thing they print their own money.

*waggles eyebrows* And despite the often crude, classless, rude and sometimes disgusting humor, it had the wit that most tv shows and comedies today can only dream about. As much as I enjoy my almost infinite choice in tv programs, it does mean we end up with 99% crap. There's less talent, I guess, now that people can choose to watch crappy reality tv instead of something intelligent. *sniff* Also, I still really love the art. It's so stylized, so 90's. I sometimes wonder if Duckman is at the heart of my anime addiction.

Long live Duckman!


The only thing to worry about...You're talking 8 hours on one DVD. And since it's red, it might be a long while before you get it. :( Yay for me, pity for you.

I used to watch this all the time when it was aired. I think I might snag it again to see how I feel about it as an adult.

I've also been meaning to that with Rocko's Modern Life, though they're both completely different. They were my favorite cartoons when they were on.

Well doozy you can rent it here and see watcha think: Duckman: Seasons One and Two.

I have seen a few episodes of Rocko's Modern Life as an adult. It still holds up, but I find myself thinking "how did I think something so weird was so appealing as a little kid?" Also fun to catch the dirty innuendos this time around.

I find myself on an adult cartoon craving. I've bought Space Ghost Coast to Coast 1-3 (which is sheer genius at times), demanded Duckman for Christmas and now I'm eying Beavis & Butthead Best Of 1-3 (too bad it's not in a seasonal format ;_;).

It occurs to me that all three of these were done in the 90's. What happened to adult cartoons? Anything else I'm missing, besides Ren & Stimpy (the non-censored versions just kind of gross me out too much).

This was so cool to read about today (via boingboing) Ren and Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi responds to a 14 yr old fan letter, gives him lots of advice and a copy of his favorite book on how to draw cartoons. He's also answering fan questions over at Reddit. What a cool guy :)
