Ombre Vivante Posted July 17, 2010 Report Share Posted July 17, 2010 The Mighty Boosh. I am so in love with Noel Fielding. *sigh* Enjoy some clips from the show. The moon montage is amazing. I love the moon I am the Moon The Hitcher Old Gregg's love games Mr Susan and the Mirror World Why do you totally rock so much?! It just isn't fair The Mighty Boosh woulda been even better to see back in the mid to late 90s when BritPop was at its height. I also tended to be on dope late at night and that woulda enhanced my enjoyment of this wacky nonsense I'm going to use a combination of "popular" cult and "raer" cult in order to list the following: Ulysses 31: 26 episode show from 1980 of the Homeric hero; same storyline as the Odyssey, except it's set in the 31st century. This show cannot get more rad if it included a rockin' synthy score (which it DOES!). In English: In Spanish (better voice cast): (from Latin America) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOijLdfb3vo (from Spain... it's better in some parts than the other Spanish dubs) Urusei Yatsura: Another animated show that began in 1980. I don't even know how to begin describing it; some people who've seen it remember the flying bikini girl with green hair - and that's pretty much the bulk of the plot! Hahahah. I think it has about 200 episodes (50 dvds), 12 direct-to-video episodes, 6 animated features, and about 5 or 6 video games. It should be really popular, but it's not. Nowadays, it's just some old Japanese cartoon! They don't know what they're missing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLmmZiA3eYQ Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High (1988-1993?): No other show about teenagers comes anywhere close to the quality of story, character development, casting, and acting this show has. Nothing. This is the standard by which I judge and compare every other show with the same themes, and most every other show depicts situations in a very hokey and forced manner. I never could get into any other shows (Beverly Hills 90201, Dawson's Creek, Swan's Way, My So-Called Life, etc.). I think the other two shows that I would recommend after seeing Degrassi are Ready Or Not (also a Canadian production) and Daria (yet another animated show). Degrassi High: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BTxTrVGLNw Ready Or Not: Kimagure Orange Road (1988-1989?): Guilty pleasure. I guess this is an animated version of Dawson's Creek, except the main guy has E.S.P./telekinetic powers. I don't think it was popular even when it first came out (the comic book was cancelled), but it started a craze of animated shows and movies where hapless, dorky guys are surrounded by good looking girl friends. This is a bad thing, but the original ain't so bad. I think it's 48 episodes with 6 direct-to-video episodes and 2 animated features. One thing that really stood out were the Pop theme songs - these were remarkably good for songs used in a cartoon show.
