5.0 out of 5 stars You Can Get This on DVD!, 25 May 2004
By 
Mr. John F. Myhill "freethyboy" (Northampton, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Rex The Runt: The Complete Series 1 [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
This video is fab, very quotable, and very funny - but it's only the first series, and it's only on VHS... and by chance I discovered that Amazon.Com (the US site) can sell you a DVD set of both series! Yes! It's a bit pricey but well worth it if you have a multi-region DVD player, as it includes a lot of episodes from the second series I missed during its patchy and irregular airing on TV. Follow the link below to the US site and have a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch animation, 17 July 2002
This review is from: Rex The Runt: The Complete Series 1 [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
This video contains the 13 episodes that make up the first series of Rex the Runt, a hilarious show made by Aardman Animations. Hilights include Vince (my favourite character) reciting Gardner's Question Time, The gang drilling a hole in the North Pole and using the puncutred plannet to travel through space, using the Eifel Tower to replace Blackpool Tower, Rex being abducted by aliens and used as an exhibit, the use of the 'Go back in time-atron' to see the invention of cheese, Wendy becoming famous, Vince marrying a vaccum cleaner, Bad Bob and Wendy shrinking cities accross England and Vince attacking Rex with a plastic fork. Be prepared to laugh yourself silly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best animation since Wallace and Gromit, 8 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Rex The Runt: The Complete Series 1 [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
I thought that the series of Rex the Runt was one of the most imaginative, and original series I have seen in a long time. It was witty, and able to entertain adults, as well as providing the slapstick humour that keeps children entertained. I would recommed this video to anyone, young or old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tuesday's Child, Full of Something., 23 Jan 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rex The Runt: The Complete Series 1 [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
I have given up having conprehensible conversations with my friends and family since we started speaking almost entirely in quotes from this horrifyingly under recoginised show. it makes Alice in Wonderland seem logical. With guest appearances from Paul Merton, Birmingham, Bob's Swiss Army Campsite and a singing reconstistuted meat product, variety is not lacking.
It is the funniest thing i've seen since, well, ever.
Please, in the name of insanity, please buy this. If you regret it, you are not the sort of person who should be allowed out. It's as close to perfect as anything in a small plastic box possibly could be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plastacine has never been so funny, 29 Mar 2003
This review is from: Rex The Runt: The Complete Series 1 [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
Rex the Runt is true comic genius. Vince is, in my opinion, the star of the show who suffers from an unfortunate ailment called 'Random Pavarotti Disease' which causes him to burst into song at random moments. Rex, Bob and Wendy enter his ear in a submarine, Bob cures him of hiccups, he attacks Rex with a plastic fork when he gets turned into spaghetti, marries a hoover and has a child - ALL in just 13 episodes. They are all really great and have both adults and children laughing. Where is Series 2? We want it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I like jam, 8 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Rex The Runt: The Complete Series 1 [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
Well, what can I say. Pure genius distilled onto plastic videotape. Vince is quite possibly the funniest plasticine dog ever, Bad Bob is bad, Wendy is Wendy and Rex is.... a runt!
There are some really classic episodes on this tape, like the one where Wendy gets arrested, or going on holiday in Vince.
Hurrah for Rex the runt!
