So packed with knowingly dreadful puns, wily sight gags, and self-referential cheek that it's impossible not to be charmed.

Stuffed with smart Internet gags, silly movie references and a happy energy that makes you forgive the sequences that don't work.

Works because they really are the focus - and they're excellently voiced .

Rocky & Bullwinkle is the new millennium's "Howard the Duck."
