Moral Orel: The Unholy Version: Volume 1 (review)

Oh my god. Heh. This Cartoon Network series — a late-night Adult Swim entry that absolutely, positively for grownups only — is a spot-on sendup of those self-righteous religious cartoons so many of us couldn’t avoid as kids (I’m looking at you, Davey & Goliath). Here we have Orel, the stop-motion-animated young citizen of the town of Moralton who inevitably gets into hilarious disasters — like raising the zombie dead, impregnating every woman in his neighborhood, and drinking his own urine — that would horrify the priggish mind even though they result from him merely doing his very best to heed the word of God. Particularly those “lost” commandments, like the 11th: “Thou shalt be ashamed of thy natural anatomy.” Every single one of these 15, 15-minute episodes across two discs is an outrageous satire on the absurdity of dogma and the terrifying power of unquestioning faith. Extras include a video of “The Awkward Comic-Con Panel” (and it is), audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes material, and more. [buy at Amazon]
