Great find!

It’s obviously not for kids so it’s annoying when it gets downgrated for any such reason. I haven’t found a decent animated series since Rick and morty and then way longer before that and finally another great. I love the wall people. So underrated underknown and under appreciated. Brilliant!

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (11):

Fresh, funny, and wildly imaginative (if violent, mean-spirited, and occasionally really gross) this animated sitcom from the team behind Rick and Morty ably mocks family sitcom humor. The plots are pleasantly daffy and surreal: Terry and Korvo make a clone of their favorite TV personality; Korvo, Terry and friends work together to steal a bear from the zoo; Yumyulack and Jesse experiment on a classmate and wind up shrinking her down to mouse size before giving her a lobotomy.

The action frequently veers from wacky to frankly a bit disturbing. In one episode of Solar Opposites, an upset Terry and Korvo have an emotional reaction they call gorbling: tiny purple creatures emit from channels on their head. The creatures are plump and happy; they run off-screen laughing, never to be seen again. Cute! But then there's a scene in which we see Jesse and Yumyulack's "wall": a collection of tiny living humans they've shrunk and imprisoned in plastic cages. In another scene, Jesse and Yumyulack pour soda on a girl's exposed brain until she sustains enough brain damage to forget her torturers. In another, a side character happily exclaims that his newfound popularity around his neighborhood means the people he knows will have to accept his habit of digging up bodies from the local cemetery and having sex with them. You get the picture. It's not for kids, but viewers with a weakness for out-there animated series with inventive mature humor will be in heaven.
