This is pretty rubbish.

How can the BBC make such good kid's programmes like horrible histories and for adults dish up pure drivel? This is incrediably dumbed down. How can I not get a job in TV but people who make shows like this can?

To think, people are forced to pay a TV Tax to fund the making of this crap. The real kicker is, we know the BBC can produce good quality 'adult orientated' animation. Just look at 'Monkey Dust'.

This crap is just lazy programme making which caters for nobody but the short attention spanned, slack-jawed 'youf' of today.

I had to answer a question for a job recently asking are there any differences in e4 and bbc3 well this speaks volumes and E4 is rubbish too. BBC3 have all the crap. Only a few little nuggets can be found amongst the shit.

WOW. I'm the opposite, thought it was hysterical.

Best thing on TV in ages!

Mind you, I love my pets and I'm always anthropomorphising them!

This, it reminded me of the podcast (or vodcast) that I mentioned above, and I found this really, really funny!

I think that I will add this to my dvd collection!

I caught this while channel surfing, and then sat slack jawed for about five minutes before regaining my faculties and continuing to surf.

What the the f***'s happening to out license fee money when people who are quite obviously not all there are given money to make dross like this?

It's like something a fourth year class would come up with for a media project. No. It's not even nearly as good as that.

I can't believe that anyone anywhere on planet earth read this bollocks in script form and thought to themselves this'll make good TV.

These people are in the wrong jobs. Only problem is so's everybody else who works with them, so nobody's really got a clue what they're doing, hence why they simply blunder about and the end result is something like this. It's the aftermath of a Communist conspiracy from the days of the Iron Curtain. In fact, that looked a bit like what Russian TV might have churned out during that era.

I'm still reeling, and I only caught five mins of this utter shite. If there ever was a reason not to have a telly in the house, that was it.

I'm with Karis on this too, best thing I've seen on BBC 3 for a while comedy wise unlike some of that drivel such as Lee Nelson.

Found this to be more of an adulty version of some of the puppet based shows on CBBC that I used to watch as a kid in the 90's

Phew! Thank god some people have a sense that we don't all like the same things.

Sometimes, purile humour from cute puppets is just what the doctor ordered.

It's like Fraggle Rock, for adults!!

You could be right. But for that to apply to Mongrels, it would actually have to contain something humourous. Which it didn't.

The puppets looked fantastic, but the show wasn't that funny.

I thought it was really enjoyable! A couple of laugh-out-loud moments, and just a generally good show!

I thought the trailer was awful. Surely they should use some really funny bits for the trailer, to coax people in?

Didn't watch the programme.

And why where they asking you that question?
Channel four was looking for people at entry level the other month for some intern positions and I have found that normally tv jobs ask the strangest of questions on their applications for someone who initially they want to do some filing, fetching and making tea. I have had to create a tv show, write a critique of 2 shows in less than 500 words, suggest where researchers should source their information and why they should look in these particular sites. Lazy lazy production companies

Miles better than some of the tosh BBC3 has put out as comedy in the past.

Lee Nelson's show shouldn't have gone past the pilot stage.

Haven't watched it yet, might give it a go, but everyone should watch Avenue Q in the West End, very funny and very rude.

Why, because they don't find the same things as you funny?
