Rated TBC by the BBFC


All 13 episodes of the BBC's adult animated comedy sketch series whose MC is a satanic madman. Meet the sulphurous and sardonic Mr Hell, (voiced by Bob Monkhouse) a satanic superstar who not only stars in his own in his own adventures but also introduces a parade of short, sharp sketches featuring a cavalcade of recurring characters, each imbued with Hell's wickedly cynical sense of humour. Among Hell's cast are Serge the Seal of Death, out for bloody revenge on the fashion industry following the death of his parents at the hands of fur trappers, Victorian Lady Detective, the 19th-century sleuth who may crack the Ripper case so long as she isn't first arrested for showing her ankles in public, and Champion the Wonder Snail, the rescuing mollusc hero who is a bit like Lassie but much, much slower. Then there's a depressive squid, a man who believes in reincarnation, the tart theme park tour guide and... well, you get the picture. In a hail of un-dodged bullets, showers of claret, knives and general gore, Mr Hell rips the Mickey mercilessly out of all cartoon series... well, ever.
