Unappealing visuals and inane storytelling make for an experience best avoided

The Drinky Crow Show is absurd and vapid, with little to no character development, ugly-looking visuals and humor that's somehow childish and obscene at the same time. There's glorification of alcoholism, sporadic blood and gore (fingers sliced off, an eyeball pulled out) and, while there isn't anything sexually graphic, jokes commonly revolve around ostentatious themes. Not very good for kids or anybody.

Don't listen to the main reviewer!!!

I'm writing this in response to the incorrect, misguiding review written above. Unlike the other review says, The Drinky Crow Show does not promote drinking, but instead portrays drinking in a very negative light, while still managing to stay very funny. The show does contain a lot of sex and violence, but as the characters aren't meant to be role models, and it is played to comedic effect, I would recommend this fantastic show for anyone ages 15 and up.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11 ):
Kids say (7 ):

This animated show for adults -- which is based on a comic strip by artist Tony Millionaire -- makes light of alcoholism. Drinky Crow and Uncle Gabby seem to be having fun as they drink themselves into stupors, and though the show's animation style certainly doesn't make their antics look pretty, it does try to make them seem amusing.

As such, The Drinky Crow Show tries to find entertainment in a narrow band located between promoting irresponsible behavior and convincing viewers to see it as a fun, ironic look at the potential hazards of liquor. And that's a tough job. Some people might laugh at Drinky Crow's misadventures but fail to realize that he's portrayed as anything but a role model. Others might find the characters' capers tedious, while others will simply find the show's graphic imagery unpleasant and offensive.
