Very funny witty tv show by the people who did Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run. Cute and entertaining claymation antics. Highly recommended.

Enjoy surreal fun with Rex The Runt and pals!

"I discovered "Rex The Runt" on the Aardman Animations webpage about two weeks ago... and was instantly hooked. The characters (our doggie hero, Rex the Runt, his live-in canine friends Bad Bob and Wendy, and Rex's dog, Vince, who has Random Pavarotti Disease) are clay figures like Nick Park's Wallace & Gromit, but more twisted and ... slightly abstract. Their object during any given episode is to have an adventure, any adventure, and this they do with relish. For instance, in "Holiday In Vince", they take a journey through Vince's brain in a shrunken submarine; in "Easter Island", the gang's helicopter crash-lands on an island inhabited by a group of aliens masquerading as Easter Island Heads who kidnap Rex and take him to the planet Thribb; and in "Stinkey's Search for a Star", the plucky dogs find themselves at the mercy of rock-and-roll fame and fortune as they form the group "Rexy Music" to win money to prevent their gas from being cut off!Several well-known British folks do the guest voices, including Eddie Izzard's terrific turn as the Easter Island Heads (ALL of them). The duel DVD set includes all episodes from both seasons of "Rex", and includes the trailer for the second season, revealing photos of Wendy during a "glamour shoot" and a DVD-ROM feature.For some, the humor of "Rex The Runt" may take a second or third viewing to get. However, it's well worth it. The only side effect is ... Random Pavarotti Disease ... but I've learned to live with it ... :)"
It's time for a doggie dialogue!

"make the most of it, folks! cos over here, where it was made, we can't get this for love nor money. a fabulously surreal romp through the most twisted minds at Aardman, this is far for charismatic than most of their work. forget Wallace & Gromit (admit it, you only watched it for Gromit anyway), this programme doffs its hat to every great comedy series. a must see. if at first you don't get it, try a second time. once you're there, you'll never want to leave."
Brilliant work from Aardam once again.

"From the British isles comes this clever claymation series. The humor, while still being a bit British, is very clever and your cheeks will hurt after smiling through the whole thing. The characters all have their own eccentricities that play well into the plot and always bring about an unexpected, but delightful ending. If you are a fan of the series from Atomfilm - then you understand the strong desire to own this and watch it non streaming. Buy it - YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!"
