This entertaining animated series comes
from the minds of those who created Wallace and Gromit plus the
equally entertaining Creature Comforts. With Planet Sketch
Series 2, the creators have truly created some interesting,
twisted and colourful characters that children and adults alike will
For the uninitiated, Planet Sketch
Series 2 is a collection of skits that star a variety characters
such as the diabolical street rappers who are feared in the streets,
however when no-one is watching, they like to get involved in games
that girls play such as skipping.
My favourite characters are the
Gnaughty Gnomes who may be innocent ornaments while in the garden
and being observed, however if you turn your back, these little
creatures come alive and like to play practical games around each
other and those around them.
Other characters from Series 2 include the two astronauts who are
probably the most stupidest men on the planet or the Hypno Poodle
who hypnotizes his owners, it's all classic fun.
The comedy of Planet Sketch Series 2
may not be as refined as Wallace & Gromit or as outlandish as
Creature Comforts, however this series is aimed at the younger
market which translates well to this age group.
My 11-year old nephew was in stitches
thanks to the over the top comedy included in this series and I must
admit that there were quite a few gags that made me laugh out loud.
Of course where the series does shine
is through the wonderful 3D animation techniques which makes this
series so endearing and entertaining. Definitely one to investigate.
