Superjail...cartoon excellence.

If you watch Superjail and are able to get past all of the violence, insanity, and incomprehensible trippiness of the storyline...the animation is really quite impressive. The characters defy all notion of "on model" from scene to scene and just revel in balls to the wall craziness -- while saying true to the princesses (or princaples) of animation.

I mean, really. If you're into animation or cartoons...or even art in general, you are really doing yourself a disservice by not appreciating how much the animators quite obviously, from shot to shot, revel in the world of playful, obscene craziness. I tip my hat to you guys.

Thats not to say the show is without stylistic problems...sometimes the compositions are amateurish and animation crude. But damn I feel the need to celebrate the freedom of it all.
