12. oz Mouse is a 2000s American surreal humor and psychological thriller animated television series created by Matt Maiellaro for Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, [adult swim]. It aired for two seasons from 2005 to 2007, and a third season in 2020.
Intentional Bad Qualities
- NOTE: Keep in mind that this cartoon was meant to be bad from start to finish.
- The animation (while good) looks incredibly primitive, like all of the backgrounds and characters were drawn in MS Paint in 5 minutes.
- The jokes are pretty horrible, as if the writers were high, drunk, or possibly both.
- The writing is even worse than other [adult swim] shows.
- The voice acting is very bland and sounds very monotone.
- That lady in some of the episodes will never shut up.
- Not only is the animation lazy, but the dialogue is possibly even lazier.
- It is very stupid and very weird (in a bad way).
- Not only is it lazy, but it’s a little ugly too. (It’s more lazy than ugly though).
- Good music.
- The theme song on (Season 1-2) made by Nine Pound Hammer is pretty good.
- At least the show isn't overly gory, unlike Mr. Pickles.
- The show did begin to improve in the second season with less lazy animation and the writing is a little better.
- The third season is when the show became good, thanks to its good revival special, Invictus.
- While the animation looks like it was made by a 4-year-old, the animation is surprisingly good.
- There are some likable characters, such as Eye and Roostre.
- Some good episodes depending on your vision like: "Adventure Mouse" (which ended Season 1 on a high note), "Pré-Reckooning", and "Prolegomenon" (which ended these seasons on a high note).
