One of the funniest shows on Adult Swim...EVER!
2 June 2019 | by nasdagoodshepherdSee all my reviews

China, Il is considered to be one of my favorite Adult Swim animated shows I have ever watched in my life. It's about 2 college professors, Steve (The coolest professor in college) and Frank (The guy who is Steve's brother, and wants to get some attention from anyone and get laid) and 2 college students, Pony (A Mexican girl who sometimes has dating issues) and Baby Cakes (A grown man with austim and has a baby for a face) going on sorts of mishaps along with The Dean, (One of the strongest men on the face of Illinois and sometimes a little corrupted towards anything and anyone.) other college professors and students. I do mind the cheap animation and also the great parts of animation ( characters moving in fantasic soild animation) the songs and music are fun to listen and the writing is sweet. Give this one a 8.8/10
