Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (4):

Fans of the short-lived adult puppet comedy Greg the Bunny -- which aired on Fox in 2002 -- will know exactly who Warren is. (In fact, they'd be able to tell you that his full name is Warren "The Ape" Demontague and that he's a veteran stage actor who's often forced to play second banana to much cuter characters.) But others might not see the humor in his penchant for potty talk, porn, and odd headgear (is it a swimming cap or part of a wrestling uniform?) -- particularly because he's a puppet. And puppets aren't supposed to say "f--k."

For adults who get the show's sharp satire of fame and celebrity, however, Warren the Ape dishes up some devilish laughs, along with celebrity cameos from the likes of Seth Green and Sarah Silverman. As for his puppet co-stars, Warren's ongoing rivalry with Snuggle Bear lookalike Chauncey the Bear is also ripe with comedic possibilities -- but it would be even better if Greg's Sesame Street-inspired Count Blah swooped in for a visit.
