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.

By Recycled Rabbit TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Aug. 2008
Format: DVD
A two DVD set of this obviously unappreciated classic Aardman plasticine animation- featuring the adventures of Rex, Wendy, Bad Bob and my favourite, Vince. Totally bizarre twists of logic-they shrink ray cities and keep them as pets, but the sewage systems make messes all over the floor, Vince after recovering from random Pavarotti disease has an affair with a vacuum cleaner, bolshy ants steal the dogs' semi-detached house- see what I mean? Definitely not designed for little kiddies. In the absence of .. (Spaghetti).... any one brave enough to release it in the country it was created in, it's well worth ...(Tuesday)... investing in a spare multiregion player for this series alone.

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.

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.

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.

Rex the Runt is simply one of the best animated programmes ever to have appeared on our screens. What I liked about this claymation show was that it was intended for adult viewers rather than children because of its adult humour and rude jokes, and when watching this DVD set it was just as funny as it was when I first saw it on BBC2 in 1998. There were two series of Rex the Runt in total, the first series was aired in 1998 and the second (and last) series was aired in 2001. It's a shame that it was axed after two series, but I think it was probably better to end the series than to drag it on for too long and become stale. Both series were very good but I felt that the first series was slightly more amusing than the second series (not that series 2 was bad, it had some good moments). It's a shame that this show hasn't been re-released on DVD by the BBC themselves because I believe it deserves such a re-release, and I was lucky enough to find a copy of this region-free US release from A&E at a reasonable price as the DVD set is a rarity nowadays. I very highly recommend Rex the Runt if you are able to get your hands on it, and I would hope that it gets re-released on DVD so that other people can relive the enjoyment of this show.

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!!
