    Adult Swim (ended 2008)
    Moral Orel is a TV-MA clay-mation series on Cartoon Network's [adult swim] segment, which centres around the life of Orel Puppington, a young boy who consistently fails in his attempts to understand and abide by Protestant Christian values.

    Orel takes his cues from the authority figures around him; his parents Clay and Bloberta, school coach Stopframe, Reverend Putty, and others. Unfortunately for Orel, he always misunderstands the actions of his mentors, who are mostly shown as bitter, jaded, and merely paying lip service to their religious beliefs.

    These misunderstandings often lead to circumstances where Orel believes that he's following the Lord's wishes by doing things such as smoking crack, re-animating the bodies of dead townsfolk, practising euthanasia, or even impregnating sleeping women with a sperm-filled pastry bag. At the end of each episode, Orel's misbehaviour is discovered and he is taken to his father's study for a beating and a twisted explaination one might not expect from a responsible adult.


    Season 2
    The second season episodes of Moral Orel somewhat eradicated the repeated narrative structure seen in Season 1 episodes, which dramatically changed the way the stories unfold; creating a fresh new approach. The majority of episodes 11-30 focus primarily on other townsfolk and their relationship with Orel, whilst still creating twisted situations. The stop-motion animation improves enormously with the Season 2 episodes; creating a richer quality in picture, with more detail. New locations and townsfolk are also introduced and expanded upon.

    Season 3
    The third and final season took the show to the next level. These episodes revolve around events leading to and following the Season 2 finale, which proved to be the series' turning point. These episodes also incorporate elements of other episodes from the past two seasons, mainly from the viewpoints of other characters, ultimately tying the entire series together and wrapping it up nicely.


    Overview & History
    Although the show slightly resembles the visual animation of the 1960s series Davey and Goliath, Dino Stamatopoulos, creator of Moral Orel, has said that it is not a parody, stating that "there's no getting around that it's religious, but the word parody to a comedian is a dirty word, because one has to know what the show is parodying to like it."

    The show originally stemmed from the concept for a send-up of a Leave It to Beaver-like 1950s family comedy, that would star Iggy Pop. The idea eventually grew and evolved into a cartoon.

    "It's an incredibly tightly written show, with probably the strongest narrative structure of anything we have on the network."
    - Nick Weidenfeld (Head of Development at Adult Swim)



    Production Companies:
    Fragical Productions
    Williams Street
    ShadowMachine Films


    The name of Dino Stamatopoulos' production company "Fragical Productions" came from a song his daughter wrote about him being "fragical." The animation sequence for the company was animated by Dino himself and uses a fairy (magical) in a wheel-chair (fragile); making up the company's name. The "hello-goodbye" heard is said by his daughter, Tigger, and is a saying that she created.moreless

Jimmy has developed a celebrity status as a world-class detective, solving crimes that leave the city's top law enforcement officials stumped and the nation cheering. One day, while at an amusement park with his girlfriend, Rachel Moore, Jimmy unwittingly finds himself at the scene of a sinister crime. Undaunted by the severity of the situation, Jimmy employs his keen deductive powers to skillfully locate the trail of the suspects. However, just as Jimmy stands poised to solve the case, he is captured by two members of a mysterious organization that operate under the darkest veil of corruption. In an effort to permanently silence the young detective, these shadowy men force Jimmy to drink a newly developed poison. One that "can't be detected in an autopsy". Miraculously, Jimmy escapes death, only to find that the toxin has reduced his 17-year-old body to the size of a 2nd grader! Distraught about his pint-sized appearance, Jimmy resolves to discover the whereabouts of these evil perpetrators. He enlists the help of his eccentric neighbor, a scientist and an inventor named Dr. Agasa. Dr. Agasa's first suggestion is that Jimmy keep his identity secret, even from his girlfriend Rachel, fearing that if anyone found out, the dangerous killers would certainly come back. The doctor's second suggestion isn't as easy – to live with Richard Moore, a washed up private detective that also happens to be his girlfriend's father! Disguising his true identity by adopting the name "Conan Edogawa", Jimmy begins a series of intricate cases, cracking puzzling and sinister crimes, in a quest to unravel the secrets behind his attack and the poison that shrunk him.
