I had never heard about Cartoon Network’s quirky, animated series, Almost Naked Animals, until I received an inquiry asking if I’d like to review the first season, which will be available on DVD starting September 25, 2012. Almost Naked Animals features an ensemble cast of underwear-clad animals, based on the quirky designs of Noah Z. Jones. The pack is led by Howie, the good-spirited but hospitality-challenged doggy manager of Banana Cabana, a beach-front hotel. Since I’m a fan of many quirky cartoons (Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Archer and more), it looked like something that would appeal to my odd sense of humor.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I love the Smurfs. Watching old Smurf cartoons on DVD brings back happy childhood memories and never fails to put me in a good mood. I’ll confess that I’ve sung the Smurf Theme Song to my infant son on more than one occasion, and I’m looking forward to sharing the Smurfs with him when he’s older.
