You can be forgiven if you’ve never heard of the Mighty Boosh and you’re not from the U.K. On this side of the pond you can find it on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim nightly block of cartoons, anime and other entertainment for a target a bit older than its usual audience.
The Boosh is a huge hit in England is is slowly catching on here in the U.S. It’s quirky, fun and very funny and is one of my favorite shows on television right now.
Here’s a sample (this clip is from the BBC so there is a short commercial):
And if you really want to get caught up fast, the Boosh just released the “special edition” DVD in the U.S. The set includes all three season and a lot of extra features. I got my hands on this last week and love it. I’d already seen all the episodes, but the extras — a short documentary, outtakes, deleted scenes, commentary, etc. — are worth the price of the set for Boosh fans and newcomers alike.
You can get the Boosh special edition at Amazon here The Mighty Boosh Special Edition DVD (Seasons 1-3).
