Bad TV: A Day in the Life of Ranger Smith (1999)

Even though John Kricfalusi's A Day in the Life of Ranger Smith is respectfully (?) dedicated to William Hanna & Joseph Barbera, the Spumco-produced short, which bowed on Cartoon Network in 1999, paints park ranger John Smith (Corey Burton, doing his best Don Messick impersonation) in a negative light. I'm not fond of the exaggerated facial features on Smith, but that's a Spumco trademark we have to deal with.

Draw your own conclusions, peeps. Kricfalusi ended his association with CN/[adult swim] after his 2001 series, The Ripping Friends, bombed on [as] after a short daytime run on Fox.

Rating: D-.
