Fantastic. I want a DVD!
Dino Stamatopoulos' Adult Swim follow-up to the masterful Moral Orel. This is also a stop-motion series. It doesn't hit the emotional heights of Orel, but it's pretty damn brilliant. An immortal Victor Frankenstein works as a mad scientist for any historical figures who arrive at his castle via Frankenholes. He helps Thomas Jefferson get a new penis, makes Gandhi a vampire and gets Jesus a new pair of socks. He often interacts with classic movie monsters, including Nosferatu, who only speaks in intertitles. A lot of crazy stuff here. The wit is super quick - it has to be with the classic Adult Swim 12 minute runtime. The voice acting is particularly great, and I especially love Andy Dick as Jesus. Probably the only time I'll ever say I like Andy Dick, but he really hits it out of the park with his performance in two episodes of this series. I don't know if this series is ever going to continue, but I hope it does. Too bad it was never popular and never got a proper DVD release. It's easily one of my favorite things that's ever been on Adult Swim.
