Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aaagh! It's The Mr Hell Show [DVD] (DVD)
This show was Bob Monkhouse's final performance, in a way. He voices the host, Mr. Hell as a clever, witty and charming chap. I would've preferred Bob to have played it in his own voice, which he does for the main part, but he has dropped in the slightest US accent on some words, I suppose to fit in a little better with the Canadian cast. Shame, that.
Anyway, the show looks good - like something from Cartoon Network. It's fast-paces and irreverent. The jokes are good and the extra features are all interesting and entertaining. A good value-for money ratio.
The animation is a little disppointing in places, through no fault of its own - this was made in a time where Flash was a simpler program, and as a result, it's what Flash animators call 'symbol-based' animation - the final product looks like a cross between cut-out animation like South Park, but it's trying to look like traditional 2D drawn animation.
That said, it is quite nicely done, and after a few sketches, you ignore it and just enjoy the show.
Not for kids, by the way. It's not obscene but there are mild swear-words and some tame sexual references/images. Okay for teenagers who've probably said and done worse!
