| I assume this cartoon looks good when you are stoned--it sure didn't when I watched it.
This is a truly bad cartoon with terrible animation and a rather hard-edged but pointless story. Considering it currently has a rating of 3.9, it seems others would agree with me.

As far as the animation goes, the drawings are very, very simple and move in a very wooden manner. The mouths are real mouths superimposed on the characters--like those terrible kids shows from the 1960s. It just doesn't get much uglier than this! As for the plot, well it all was like a stream of consciousness film as written by a person who was completely intoxicated. Numerous references to drugs and alcohol along with frequent profanity made this a film that would probably will offend many--perhaps most. What offended me most, though, was the apparent pointlessness of it all--which, perhaps, is the point they meant to make. Yeah, whatever....
