It is not a sin to laugh

"Here is the first Steven Wright joke I heard: "Curiosity killed the cat, but for a few days I was a suspect." It took me an awkward while to laugh. Now I can't get Steven Wright off my DVD player. . .
The humor in "Moral Orel" is more fast-acting. It's great stuff. . .even after some of the sadness kicks in. I wonder if it is going to be as addictive and as memorable as Wright's comedy.
Orel is Beaver Cleaver, reincarnated in claymation. He is, of course, moral, trying to always please God, attempting not to sin. To waste, according to Orel's forever preaching minister, is sinful. So Orel learns to turn his urine into an energy drink, resorts to masturbating into a pastry bag (a device which allows him to not "spill his seed" and also allows him to impregnate most of the town's women), uses the crack cocaine given to him in exchange for his charitable donation to a drug dealer. . .and his odd exploits innocently continue, always plausible, always funny.
It isn't until a few shows into this collection of the first 15 episodes of "Moral Orel" that you start to also see the catalog of pain: the lonely alcoholic father; the frigid, compulsive housewife; the lonely, gay high school coach; the lonely, vain minister. . .Clearly, the only people enjoying themselves here are the children. And, of course, the audience."
American Art. The rest of the series needs to be on DVD ASA

"Moral Orel is a stunningly raw portrayal of Americana through dark comedy that becomes increasingly darker as the series progresses. You will never feel so psychologically involved with animated characters.
