REX THE RUNT, the cult hit that originally aired on the BBC (from the company that brought you Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run), is an amazingly stupid and stupendously amusing romp that'll challenge everything you thought you knew about plasticene dogs. Watch the first two seasons now, before Rex becomes a cult and tries to take your life savings.

The characters (our doggie hero, Rex the Runt, his live-in canine friends Bad Bob and Wendy, and Rex's dog, Vince, who has Random Pavarotti Disease) are clay figures like Nick Park's Wallace & Gromit, but more twisted and ... slightly abstract. Their object during any given episode is to have an adventure, any adventure, and this they do with relish. For instance, in "Holiday In Vince", they take a journey through Vince's brain in a shrunken submarine; in "Easter Island", the gang's helicopter crash-lands on an island inhabited by a group of aliens masquerading as Easter Island Heads who kidnap Rex and take him to the planet Thribb; and in "Stinkey's Search for a Star", the plucky dogs find themselves at the mercy of rock-and-roll fame and fortune as they form the group "Rexy Music" to win money to prevent their gas from being cut off!
Several well-known British folks do the guest voices, including Eddie Izzard's terrific turn as the Easter Island Heads (ALL of them). The duel DVD set includes all episodes from both seasons of "Rex", and includes the trailer for the second season, revealing photos of Wendy during a "glamour shoot" and a DVD-ROM feature.
For some, the humor of "Rex The Runt" may take a second or third viewing to get. However, it's well worth it. The only side effect is ... Random Pavarotti Disease ... but I've learned to live with it ... :)

This one went under the radar to a large extent, in the UK where Aardman are considered animation gods. It is very British. Read morePublished on May 4, 2014 by Mr. Am Kean

The review above stinks. It's that simple. Humor--especially absurd humor--is not simply a matter of taste (as someone else who dislikes this DVD collection here notes), it... Read morePublished on October 8, 2005 by Wayne A.
