Finally a series that doesn't insult your intelligence, the characters are well developed, the stories - bizarre, no jokes for the sake of a cheap laugh, and no laugh track.
You've gotta check this out, it's still airing on Comedy Network a number of times a week in it's 3rd season, it just keeps getting better.
Don't know about the grainy quality the other reviewer mentioned, mine looks fine.

I got this dvd the first time as a gift. I watched the whole season in one night. It was brilliantly offensive. Sociopaths, psychopaths, and a rehabilitation officer under one roof...and 4 of the characters are puppets.

The show escilates from wrong to dear God did that just happen. This show speaks for itself with just the distributor review. Pick this up, it's worth a watch.

I bought this dvd set without having seen the show based on the title the and preceding review. Unfortunately I did not find this show nearly as enjoyable as the previous reviewer.

The problem I had with this show is that it is just seldom laugh out loud funny. "South Park" makes me laugh out loud when it's good. Ditto "Reno 911," another currently popular dark comedy. But aside from a few of the truly twisted puppet-sex scenes and Cuddles' killing rampage in one of the episodes, I rarely experienced more than a slight smile watching these 13 episodes. Truth be told, I did not find "Kids In the Hall" to be funny, either, so perhaps I should have considered myself warned when I read about that connection to this show's creative team.

I think that what was most disappointing about these shows is that it would be more accurate to call it "Puppets Who Killed" rather than "...Kill", as very few of these episodes feature that ultimate antisocial act. Instead the sort of antisocial behavior the puppets are up to these days involve more mundane things like starting a urine sample company to provide "clean" urine to people who use drugs. Worth a little giggle, I guess, but not nearly as twisted as I anticipated.

To be fair, the later episodes on this 2-dvd set seem to be better than the earlier ones (with the exception of the early episode where Cuddles' killing rampage occurs), so perhaps this show got better over time and subsequent seasons were better.

I found the picture quality to be fine on my 32" HDTV monitor -- not a spectacular picture, but as good as the many other TV shows I have purchased on dvd.

DVD set features a few bonuses, including a commentary track for one of the episodes as well as a "behind the scenes" short that introduces the viewer to the puppeteers behind the characters.

This is a truly insane comedy about a half-way house for psychotic puppets. The residents include Cuddles, a cute doll who occassionally snaps and goes on killing sprees; Buttons, a sex-crazed teddy bear; Rocko, a burnt out dog doll; and Bill, the scheming ventriloquist dummy who goes into fits of depression if he goes too long without committing a murder. Looking after them is a social worker played by Dan Redican, formerly of The Frantics and behind the scenes with The Kids in the Hall. Dan's ploys to teach the puppets values usually just winds up leading to more murder and mayhem and subsequent coverups so he won't lose his job. If anything, Dan is being corrupted. Along the way, the puppets meet domanitrixes, necrophiliacs, witches, and other interesting characters. There's no nudity, but it is a Canadian show so censorship is not a problem, and you've never truly experience television until you've seen a cutesy wutesy puppet having sex with a human female. The show should appeal to warped minds and fans of South Park.
The series' creators include John Pattison, a former Jim Henson puppeteer, and Shawn Alec Thompson whose main exposure in the US is in John Water's Hairspray. Other people working on the show include former Sesame Street puppeteers and the guys who did Johnny 5 in Short Circuit 2 and the puppets in Bride of Chucky.
The only negative with this collection is the picture quality which is inexplicably grainy.

By T. Crockett on April 9, 2005
In the interest of instant ratings gratification, the network brass should have titled this series 'When Good Puppets Go Bad'. But then, that's too much reality and not enough makeover. In this old halfway house, you get Bill (The bloodthirsty ventriloquist dummy), Buttons (The sexually hyperactive corporate mascot), Cuddles (The foul-mouthed comfort doll) and Rocko (The con-artist plush puppy) who all go into a rehab midstation with their antics, both psychologically murderous on their hapless social worker (Played by comic near genius Dan Redican) and deadly funny at the same time.

Here you get 2 discs - To complete the first season of 'Puppets Who Kill'. This hilarious series has absolutely no redeeming social value, but it is solidly written, cleverly directed and just silly enough to keep you hooked! Here's the rap sheet on the First Season :

Episode 1 - Dan's Crush
* Button the bear uses his charms to con Dan out of some tickets to a basketball game. In fact, his charms work too well. Dan develops a very unhealthy crush on the irresistible Buttons. Meanwhile, Dan convinces Cuddles to reconcile with an old bully from his past, with results he could not have predicted.

Episode 2 - Cuddles Gets Laid
* Buttons arranges to give Cuddles his first sexual experience. Once sexualized, Dan has to find a way to contain Cuddles' seemingly voracious sexual appetite. Also, Bill gets a visit from one of his past partners.... Curious Bob (John Hemphill), a ventriloquist he once tried to kill and thought he was done with forever.

Episode 3 - Dash The Greeter
* Dash Dagger is a hideously deformed puppet. Dan helps him land a job as a greeter in a department store, and this leads Dash into a battle with all the beautiful people who work there.
