Lil Bush – Resident Of The United States – Uncensored/Season One: The Invasion Begins (DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C+     Episodes: B



The second President Bush arrived with a bold comedy attacking him and he will leave office with another tearing his legacy in shreds further.  Following That’s My Bush, reviewed elsewhere on this site and cancelled only because of 9/11, Lil Bush – Resident Of The United States looks to have a far better life and run as the stunning combination of the inept and irresponsible send the U.S. down the proverbial drain.  This time, instead of a mock sitcom, we get an animated series.


But as a bonus, equaling the infantilism we have been getting from this administration for nearly two terms, the entire White House staff is played as children!  Ironically, it mirrors a trend in children’s television that casts characters from previous franchises (Muppets, Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, etc.) as child versions and sometimes it works.  When it does not, it seems as recycled as it does regressive.  As if to finish the botched job of ruining things his father first set out to do in his 1988 – 1992 term, this show never holds back.


Though there are only a few shows here, the pointed humor and the idea that the real parents are from the first Bush White House epitomizes how this would be all the funnier if this were not indicative of how many people were dead and suffering because of said policies.  The show can proudly join South Park and Family Guy as worthy of being on the cutting edge of TV animation.


The 1.33 X 1 image is very colorful and well done for a TV show and the designs are a hoot.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is clean and clear enough to hear the jokes, sarcasm and sadness.  Extras include a bonus episode never before seen, a “tour” of this particular White House, a behind the scenes featurette and audio commentary by no less a group that includes Jerry Springer (whose show made this White House more palatable), Ralph Nader (who helped get them into office instead of being the consumer advocate he long abandoned being) and Tucker Carlson, the news commentator who just got cancelled.


Also, we found the picture of Bush, Condi, Rummy and Cheney on the DVD as a demented version of KISS a howler.  It could be a poster.
