Using a therapist's couch as a forum for stand-up shtick was a great idea. Comedians are usually just complaining most of the time anyway, so you might as well just work it into a show. And instead of just giving a comedian their own sitcom, why not just have a show that gives a bunch of comedians a chance to run with their best material.
And let's animate it in Squigglevision. But the show really wouldn't have worked without Jonathan Katz as Dr. Katz and H. Jon Benjamin as his lethargic son, Ben. Listening to the two of them together was like having two Bob Newharts collide in an endearing stammer-fest of love. The animation was crude, but the heart and humor were there. Hanna-Barbera produced Josie and it's an amusing show for how it so specifically combined elements from the success of The Archie Show and Hanna-Barbera's own Scooby-Dooas Josie and her friends not only played music together, but inadvertently stumbled into mysteries they would ultimately help solve.
The show was a weird kind of G. Joe - Transformers hybrid, but it managed to combine the best elements of those franchises while adopting few of their flaws. But what really set it apart was the namesake of the show -- the super-powered masks the characters wore.
The masks provided the ethnically-diverse-yet-stereotypical cast with abilities like anti-gravity, flight, and energy beams. Matt Trakker was the ruggedly handsome, rich, charismatic lead of the show. His pimp ride was a red Chevrolet Camaro G3 that transformed into a gull-winged fighter plane. And since Scott was always upgrading his expensive buddy, he provided plenty of validation for the little boys who would grow up to be today's tech geeks and robot nerds.
But one of the more notable aspects of the show was the fact that it showed a single dad taking care of his only son while fighting Dr katz parody forces of evil. In some ways this is the Firefly of animated series -- aired out of order and then quickly discarded by a network that didn't feel it fit with their programming. Only six episodes were produced, and only two of them aired, but there was a lot of very funny material in Kevin Smith's adaptation of his own film. A rather brilliant second episode parodied that old television staple, with the characters trapped together, reminiscing on past events -- only here, with only one episode having been produced, all of their memories are of that week's events Starring the entire main cast of the Clerks films, not to mention Alec Baldwin as the Lex Luthorish Leonardo Leonardo, Clerks was able to do a lot more broad comedy and parodies than the films, with episodes evoking everything from Fast Times at Ridgemont High to the unfortunate of a Transformer transforming with a person inside him.
Like many of the shows represented on our TopThe Dr katz parody is a cartoon we here at IGN grew up with, and as such it holds a special place in our memories. Based on a Belgian comic strip, the tiny blue-skinned Smurfs became an unstoppable media empire with this popular s Hanna-Barbera animated series. The animation itself wasn't much to speak of, but the stories told over the course of its episodes were kiddie cocaine to those of us who grew up in the '80s. The peaceful Smurfs, led by Papa Smurf and predominantly male with the sole exception of Smurfettewere often chased by the evil wizard Gargamel and his cat Azrael.
Watching the series as an adult, one can't help but sympathize a little bit with the Smurf-hating Gargamel -- the constantly upbeat and overly saccharine attitudes of most of the Smurfs, mixed with whininess and an extreme overuse of the word "smurf" by everyone, makes you start to root for the poor, bumbling wizard who just wants to make some nice Smurf stew. Running for Dr katz parody seasons from to on NBC, these Star Trek half-hour adventures are seen by many fans as the lost fourth year of Captain Kirk and crew's legendary five-year mission.
Featuring animation by Filmation, the show didn't typically excel visually -- cartoons proved to most definitely not be the final frontier for the Enterprise. But the world of animation did offer the Star Trek writers the chance to portray things they could never do on a live-action budget at the time -- from three-armed crew members to new and exciting alien worlds. Most importantly, many of the writers of the original show returned here, from D. Fontana to Samuel A. Peeples to Gene Roddenberry himself. That fidelity to the s show, plus the inclusion of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and most of the other actors or their voices anywayled to Star Trek: The Animated Series becoming one of the most interesting, if under-viewed, shows in all of the Trek franchise.
Although it's mostly an upbeat story with amazing action scenes, Fullmetal Alchemist scores big points for touching on many aspects of the human condition. The main characters are the Elric brothers, Ed and Al. Ed is the famous Fullmetal Alchemist who almost lost his little brother Al in an accident that occurred when the boys tried to resurrect their dead mother using alchemy.
Edward managed to contain his brother's soul in a suit of armor.
While he did manage to save his brother's life, he had to pay a great price himself. To get back what they lost, the brothers embark on a journey to find the legendary Philosopher's Stone. This story doesn't pull any punches. Right from the first few episodes we're presented with the topics of death, lost hope, and betrayal. The real emotional engine of the series is the relationship between Ed and Al, as the two boys go through turmoil that no one of any age should have to deal with. By the end of this series you just want to give them both a hug and tell them everything will be okay.
FMA is one of those special anime that became more than a mere animated show; it was a powerful weekly drama. Based on the comic strip of the same name by African American cartoonist Aaron McGruder, The Boondocks takes a sharp satirical look at American society, with an emphasis on black culture and race relations, from hip-hop and movies to icons like Martin Luther King, Jr. Controversial from the start, The Boondocks has drawn criticism for its use of the N-word and for its portrayal of such historical figures as King.
The series follows the Freeman family -- year-old Huey, his eight-year-old brother Riley and their grandad Robert -- and their experiences after the boys moved from the South Side of Chicago to live with Grandad in the suburbs. The two seasons produced so far have been released on DVD, uncensored and complete with two ly unaired episodes from season two, which were highly critical of BET which makes for some amusing episode commentaries by McGruder and the cast.
Disney Afternoon's response to Batman, but with a duck looking more The Shadow than The Dark Knight, is one of the many reasons why after-school cartoons rule. This DuckTales spin-off ran from toand during that time the goofy yet thrilling adventures of Drake Mallard never ceased to satisfy. And how could they not: awesome sidekick who was more Han Solo than Dick Grayson? Check, his name's Launchpad and he's about 10 different types of cool. Duck-themed aerial transport? Some nods to James Bond and Marvel for good measure? And that theme song makes for a geeky-cool ringtone, which is nice.
From DW's misadventures with Gizmoduck to some throw-downs with villain Flintheart Glomgold, our time in the city of St. Canard was more than worthwhile. It was pure fun. Want to know what kids are thinking? Well yer gonna. Rugrats might have had a sort of hideous Dr katz parody style that transformed a bunch of toddlers into grotesque monstrosities, but it sure was popular. Sure, there were grownups around to let Dr katz parody know exactly what was going on, but the focus of the show was "how kids look at things.
With all the toddlers able to effectively communicate with each other through baby speak, Rugrats took its cues from earlier shows like Muppet Babies and had the kids use their imaginations to create adventures for themselves. And not only that, the characters have a new show called All Grown Upwhere you can find them On the heels of the success of Space Ghost Coast to CoastCartoon Network's Adult Swim launched several series using ly created animated characters in offbeat and bizarre new situations.
Harvey Birdman was an especially clever example of this type of show, reimagining the s superhero as a lawyer. A wonderful conceit of the series had Harvey's cases involving other classic cartoon characters, but with many adult scenarios thrown in -- including Scooby and Shaggy arrested for possession, Fred Flintstone turned mafia don, Boo Boo accused of terrorism, and Super Friends 's Apache Chief suing after spilled coffee on his lap prevents him from, ahem, "growing larger.
As one of the few currently running cartoons on the list, Afro Dr katz parody has made a quick Dr katz parody indelible impression on us here at IGN. Based on a manga created by Takashi Okazaki, this anime series mixes plenty of top-tier voice talent including Samuel L. Jackson, Kelly Hu, and Ron Perlman, just to name a few with an excellent soundtrack provided by the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and a budget large enough to ensure the very best quality from every aspect of the show. The story is a simple one: As Afro watches his father die at the hands of an evil gunman, only to spend the rest of his life training in the samurai way to take down his father's killer and become " One.
As we write this list, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is still a very new show, only halfway through its first season, thus it's hard to fully gauge it as yet. What we've seen though shows plenty of promise, and even though there are definitely some issues with the series -- those ever-annoying Battle Droids perhaps chief among them -- the show consistently delivers solid action and fun. More importantly, a couple of the early episodes, especially "Rookies" and "Cloak of Darkness" have been true standouts, telling dark and moody stories in the Star Wars universe that are among the best the Expanded Universe has offered.
Guided by talented uber- Star Wars fan Dave Filoni, and using notable writers like Batman: The Animated Series 's Paul Dini, The Clone Wars has had to overcome cynicism from older fans and those who feel the Cone Wars series can't be outdone -- and slowly but surely, it's battling past those obstacles and proving to be a quite entertaining series in its own right. Like Dr katz parody of the classic cartoons on this list, that irascible, nervous-breakdown-prone Woody Woodpecker started life in a series of theatrical shorts that date back as early as Years later, he would find renewed vigor when the shorts were packaged for television viewing And maybe, just maybe, driving a few of them to nervous breakdowns all their own.
As was the case with many of his peers, Woody wasn't always a very likable guy. No, the Walter Lantz produced toon created by Ben "Bugs" Hardaway was originally a certifiably insane fellow whose de, and personality, evolved over the years into a somewhat more acceptable member of society. Voiced by the inimitable Mel Blanc and later Ben Hardaway and Lantz's wife Grace Staffordthe bird is perhaps best remembered for his unmistakable laugh, which was even incorporated into his theme song eventually.
He, he, he, he, ha! One of the best animated shows of all time? More like one of the most astonishingly awesome creations ever conceived by our miserable race! Frisky Dingofrom the minds that brought you such greats as Sealabcombines everything anyone could ever want into one grand television extravaganza.
It's got billionaire tycoons playing with plastic dinosaurs, Scion partnerships with big-ass cross promotions, rabbit fights, ant farm keyboards, and the line "shut up hooker! If watching Awesome X blast the ever-loving hell out of his own "robotic" Xticle fighting force, seeing the greatest supervillain of all time we just said that Killface shove his fist up a man's half-corpse and then use him like a puppet, or see the blue collar Decepticles -- "More than you bargained for!
If you don't like it, then there's the big ass door. Maybe go try "Homes and Gardens dot com" or something. This show kicks so much ass, you'll probably go blind.
Though its popularity in Western cultures has waned over the past couple decades, Astro Boy is a cultural icon in Japan. Based on a story by Osamu Tezuka a. Each episode involved Astro using his robot powers to save the day. The original show aired in black and white, and when American network execs brought it stateside, it became the first anime to be broadcast Dr katz parody Japan.
A remake of the TV series didn't make waves in the U. Fans everywhere are praying that it will do justice to the original, and introduce the beloved franchise to a new generation. Hey, you know who's annoying? Just about everyone on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Taking the Spongebob -ish formula, which is really the Pink Panther -ish formula, of having your main character systematically strip others of their sanity, Foster's creates a whole new genre of kids show.
It's almost a twist on Artaud's old "Theater of Cruelty," in which children's programming can no longer exist without an element of torturous lunacy. Revolving around a halfway house for "retired" imaginary friends, Foster's unleashes insanity at every turn.
Because most every character is based on the erratic whims of their child creator, they're all freakin' bonkers, and serve to pester and drive each other mad at every turn. Our hero Mac doesn't want to let go of his best buddy Bloo, so he's allowed to hang around Foster's whenever he wants. Bloo himself is a study in selfish delinquency and one might wonder why anyone would want to create him in the first place much less keep him around.
The great joy of Foster's however, aside from the animation style and the kickin' theme music, is that it never truly grates on you. Nothing is malicious. Sure, all the characters spiral out of control in their own way, but it's also all very funny and very endearing. And of course, all the characters are equal when compared to the most fantastically annoying character every created, Cheese. This show has a very fond place in the hearts of those who grew up with it in the '90s, so some might complain about it being rather low on this list.
Sorry guys, we have a soft spot for it too, but when you look at The Spectacular Dr katz parodyit's clear that this show, while ificant for Spider-Man, was a stepping stone along the way as far as creating a truly great show based on the character. Still, the s Spider-Man series deserves a lot of credit for being the first Spidey show to truly use the comics for inspiration when it came to adaptation, as many familiar stories were given a twist here, including the Venom saga and even Spider-Man's odd time spent with six arms.
Unlike any of the Spider-Man series, long term story arcs were utilized, and certain storylines were given a suitable amount of time to build, continuing for several episodes or even an entire season. After years of being wowed by Bruce Timm's animated take on the DC universe with everything from Batman to Justice Leagueit was a bit of a shock to see the original "young people's" superhero group get a whole different kind of treatment in this anime-tinged series.
Still, as out-there as the style of the show seemed to be to many fans, the series did often touch on hallmarks of the comic on which it was based, including stories culled from the "Judas Contract" and "Terror of Trigon" story arcs from the New Teen Titans comic.Dr katz parody
