UPN Mondays

Sure, there are too many prime-time cartoons on the air, but remember, each new half-hour of animation means one less lame sitcom. Here the creator of Dr. Katz has transformed his motionless SquiggleVision technique into moving animation, and in doing so has sacrificed some of the banter for which the Comedy Central program is known. But this show, about an eight-year-old who makes films and his mother (Paula Poundstone), is more than smart enough to make you wonder why it's on UPN.
