You ever hear the term so lame its funny? Well heres a show so funny its lame. Battletoads.

Now for the last blog about the TV shows I got from that box in my garage.

Based on a fun Nintendo game, the battletoads TV show attempted to have the same fun loving attitude as the game. But did it succeed? No. Obviously not, or else I wouldn't have written this!



The TV show has stupid puns, silly expressions, crazily dressed kids (including a pink haired punk kid in a leather jacket ripped blue jeans and sandals!), odd animal enemies, a sexy dominatrix villain and of course 3 retarded battletoads called Zits, Rash and Genital Warts!




But with all the wacky humour, constant jokes and its never trying to be at all real attitude it ends up being lamer than the Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad! At lest with them you could laugh AT the show!

You can't laugh at this show cause it's trying to make fun of its self! Its pathetic! Its self deprecating!
The premise of the show is stupid and the characters in the show think its stupid as well!

No straight man dealing with the silliness of the situation only comedy relief characters talking to comedy relief characters (with no comedy happening)!

The animation is bad and the show doesn't even attempt to be well made, at one point the three loser kids (who will become the Battletoad) are at a grocery store when they are confronted by a birdman and a princess who leap out of a video game and tell them of there need to escape the rule of the dark queen (who dresses like a dominatrix) and as this epic duologue goes on we the audience are treated to a shot of a black guy casually reading a newspaper!



Why?

Battletoads!

And then after the three are turned into Battle toads and continue their talk with the birdman the camera zooms into a magazine rack, then pulls away from the magazine rack!



Why?

Battletoads!

So its no surprise this show only lasted one episode. Its terrible stacked on terrible with terrible on the side! And if your curious to see it, well I don't know what to say!

(Oh and to top it off not only did this show only has one episode but at the end of said episode the words "the beginning" appear at the bottom of the screen!)
