Mongo Wrestling Alliance
This is the newness on Adult Swim. A sort of an alternate universe where professional wrestling is far more real and important than here. Our hero is heir to a proud legacy. With friends aiding him he goes about a rather hilarious version of the hero's journey. Few heroes have to face threats like midget wrestlers with flaming asses. The animation is middle ground for Adult Swim. The jokes are also middling but with potential. Like "Rocky," it has heart even if it's a little twisted. Heck, Harry Dean Staton is lending his voice so that alone will keep me watching.
