A tv show review written by: Lee Sonogan
Dogbert: They say only the good die young. If that works both ways, I’m immortal.
An animated television series that was an adaptation of a comic strip of the same name. Winning a Primetime Emmy, lasting two seasons it was eventually cancelled. Dilbert is about a workaholic who works at a tech company which makes undefined products. He must survive against his idiotic boss, hostile co-workers and his malevolent pet, Dogbert. Dogbert may be my favourite character of the television series. One of the best theme songs to a tv show of all time.
The Creator of Dilbert Scot Adams first published Dilbert as a comic strip in 1989. Satirical office humour is what Dilbert is most known for. The comic strip has spawned more than a tv show. There are dozens of books, a video game and new comic strips being released in modern times. The creator is said to have a net work of $75 million with most of it coming from the Dilbert money. Speaking about his animated series “I wouldn’t do animation again. Part of the problem is that the characters are designed for print. With no mouths and no eyes, it just wasn’t optimize [sic] for movement,”.
Guest stars in episodes:
- Stone Cold Steve Austin
- Andy Dick
- Jon Favreau
- Gilbert Gottfried
- Tom Green
- Jay Leno
- Billy West
- Jerry Seinfeld
- Eugene Levy
- And much more!
In the end this show was underrated in my opinion. I never read the comics of it and I enjoy this adaptation very much. Cleaver and witty it had perfect episode concepts that were both absurd and not far from the truth. Voice acting is perfect to each character. The ending of the show dipped off in quality in season 2 explaining the cancellation. But that is also because of the later time slot the show was put on. I recommend this tv show to people who can relate to it and people who have knowledge of working in a business/office.
PS – I still have the DVD set of Dilbert that I want to watch again!
Dogbert: Remember, the first rule of brainstorming is to openly mock the opinions of others.
