The way in which emotions are portrayed as abstract art is exquisite. Thus creating the godfather of all adult cartoons. With good animation and good humour comes unflawed perfection. It is a shame that this didn't last longer than 2 seasons.

OMG this show is hilarious. So sad it only made one season, but the show was way ahead of its time. Had it come out now it would have been super successful!
