Whoops, You Know What The Music Means.

One of the smartest and funniest tv shows (never easy to do) was Dr Katz Professional Therapist. For a high concept show it was brilliant. Take the best jokes of many of the top stand up comedians of the late 90s and have them riff and rant while in their psychiatrist's office (the previously mentioned Dr Katz). Add to the mix his slacker son Ben and long suffering, disinterested, people hating secretary Laura and you have six seasons of comedy GOLD! The animation is totally unique 'squigglevision' which is actually a cheaper form of animation but its not about the cartoons...its all dialogue baby. Ben is the ultimate slacker loser but his dad still loves and encourages him. Dr Katz tries to have hope that Ben will become something but we all know that will never happen. Oh and "long live BULLY".
