5.0 out of 5 stars A classic worth keeping
Only two series were made, and for some reason the BBC which commissions such dire bilge in its "comedy" roster decided not to commission a third. Yes, it is expensive to hire puppeteers and actors, but Mongrels was the funniest BBC creation in years. The main characters - a metrosexual fox called Nelson, his murderous cousin Vince, a cat called Marion who speaks...

3.0 out of 5 stars A debateable purchase ?
This is a Series 1 and Series 2 combination set of Mongrels. There are only two series, and there will be currently no more of it - alas alack!

As this combined dvd has been released at the same time as the series 2 dvd - both of them a year after transmission - and as Series 2 dvd carries no extras whatsoever, I would suspect strongly that this combined dvd...

This review is from: Mongrels - Series 1 & 2 Boxset [DVD] (DVD)
Only two series were made, and for some reason the BBC which commissions such dire bilge in its "comedy" roster decided not to commission a third. Yes, it is expensive to hire puppeteers and actors, but Mongrels was the funniest BBC creation in years. The main characters - a metrosexual fox called Nelson, his murderous cousin Vince, a cat called Marion who speaks with a Spanish accent and confuses real life with plots of home videos he has watched, a psychotic pigeon and a vain Afghan hound who is both brainless and callous - all inhabit the back yard of a pub belonging to Gary, the only recurring "human" character. The humour is simultaneously sick, postmodern, satirical, pastiche, gross, farcical, subversive and laugh-out-loud funny. Americans may not recognise the "celebrities" who appear occasionally and are sent up, but don't worry. The main characters are superficially cute but all deeply flawed. As soon as you think they seem sweet, they do something shocking, and the musical routines are fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars best ever comedy?, 5 Nov 2012
This review is from: Mongrels - Series 1 & 2 Boxset [DVD] (DVD)
Granted you've got to have a warped sense of humour to start watching mongrel but stick at it. The humour appears crude at times but keep watching. Then you'll find a multi-layered depth of targets all hit point blank. What's really criminal is that the bbc pulled the plug on this programme. Think they didn't understand it . But this is a top class act. They've managed to offend everyone without them knowing and watched as they llaugh at everyone else being put down. The vest comedy in years !!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic series, 1 Dec 2012
This review is from: Mongrels - Series 1 & 2 Boxset [DVD] (DVD)
Obviously humour is personal but this series breaks new ground.
Very clever parody and very, very funny. I am almost afraid I will discover there's no third series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and filthy, 19 Mar 2014

So non PC that I have snorted coffee out of my nose on several occasions. If you are looking for a laugh out loud, ridiculous comedy then here it is. It is dirty, foul language, violent and nasty and possibly the funniest DVD you may ever buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely programme with lots of cuddly animals, 17 Jan 2014

Not!

Vince, Nelson, Marion, Destiny, Marion and Kali make for fantastic viewing. Look out for Harry Hill and Chris Packham and a few other "celebs" making cameo appearances.

A note of caution - elderly mother-in-laws may find this grossly offensive.

Similarly, it is probably not a good idea to show this to your kids.

Ruff!

Such a funny series. Pity they won't be making any more. 'Silly' humour but a good way to bring a laugh.
