One of the best cartoons ever.
23 June 2006 | by shobhnaguerinSee all my reviews

This is definitely the best cartoon series that I have ever seen. Side-splitting till the end credits, it shocks and amazes with its simplicity yet its satiric wit. Every character is hilarious and lovable, but I have to say that my favorite character is definitely the Angry Scientist, with his broken English and hunched shoulders and over-the-top devices to help General Specific catch Sheep.

Lovely lovely show. I wish Cartoon Network brought it back. Or at least put it on DVD. I would be the first one to buy it, no matter what the price.

Mo Willems, if by some blind luck you're reading this, please consider selling the episodes of the show on DVD, even if it's only through your website. I love this show so much and would give an arm and a leg to have the episodes.
