The voice acting is excellent. The characters all sound just as they would be expected to when reading the comic strip. Daniel Stern as Dilbert, Larry Miller as the clueless boss (who had to have been based off of one of Scott Adams' bosses), Larry Charles as slacker engineer Wally, Kathy Griffin as Alice, the triangular-haired female engineer, and Chris Elliot as Dilbert's sidekick Dogbert, not to mention a parade of guest stars, including Tom Green, Andy Dick, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jason Alexander. Put simply, this show had talent to burn.
After occasional reruns on Comedy Central, I am jubliant to see this comedy jewel now available on DVD. The quirkiness and humor of the comic strip is definitely present here, as well as the savage skewering of workplace politics and procedures. The show's highlights include the first episode, the anthrax cough drops bit was inspired, a Y2K-themed episode (remember all that fuss about the end of the world?), frequent visits from evil Mr. Catbert (voiced by Jason Alexander), as well as a guest appearance by Jerry Seinfeld as an insane computer in charge of a computer-by-mail company, a la Dell. My favorite episode has got to be the merger episode, which has Dilbert's company merging with aliens from outer space (the funniest bit had to do with a mexican restaurant/corporate pickup bar).
I think very highly of this show and think that you should give it a shot. You owe it to yourself.
In the strange adventures of Dilbert (Daniel Stern) and friends... er, coworkers, they travel to the muddy, backward country of Elbonia, search for Dilbert's long-lost dad in the mall, create anthrax throat drops ("My throat is moist... and the raspiness is gone... GACK!"), try to name a product that doesn't exist, deal with a black hole, and battle tiny people who are stealing the office supplies. Their souls are sucked out by their company, and a cat rules over Human Resources. And through it all, the megalomaniac Dogbert (Chris Elliot) somehow manages to arrange things so that the disasters aren't too outstanding.
Several supporting characters have enlarged roles. There's the violent, big-haired Alice (Kathy Griffin); lazy Wally; naive, dumb Asok, the idiot pointy-haired boss (Larry Miller), and Loud Howard (who can shatter glass with his booming voice). Other favorites like Catbert (played by "Seinfeld's" Jason Alexander) crop up from time to time, as well as other cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Jeri Ryan, and others.
The animation is amusing and quite faithful to Adams' original animation (although Dilbert has a mouth here). And the humor is deliciously, delightfully twisted -- without losing the corporate edge, the scriptwriters kept in the sort of bizarre occurrances that make this so funny. Several scenarios are, however, included from the strip -- and sometimes even expanded (such as the Dadbert-in-the-mall episode).
Everyone's favorite bespectacled, pointy-tied, potato-shaped engineer is still funny on the small screen. "Dilbert: The Complete Series" is a must-have for cubicle serfs and technogeeks.
This TV Series goes where no comic strip can dare penetrate, such as a machine that "gives birth" to cute toys, a really, really funny episode involving a computer that controls the world, and of course, Dogbert's overall inhumanity being further strengthened. Buy this DVD today and you will not regret it.
The only thing I can't figure out is why in the world it got cancelled...
