Perfect Hair Forever

Show Summary

Perfect Hair Forever is a show about a young boy named Gerald who for some unknown reason is going bald. He sets off on an adventure to gain "perfect hair forever" under the guidance of his mentor, Uncle Grandfather, and Rod, The Anime God. He meets many strange individuals who join him in his quest including the Action Hotdog, Norman Douglas (Former the Inappropriate Comedy Tree), The King of All Animals, Twisty (aka Terry), and others. He is thwarted at every step by Coiffio, the Evil Controller of Cats, whose minions include Catman, Model Robot, and the Astronomic Cat.

Essentially it's a big parody of Japanese Anime, and is not meant to be taken seriously, at all. Not even a little bit.

    Attention Japaneese animation fans, when you think of anime cliches, ( and there are alot of them ) what usualy comes to mind? Outrageous hairstyles, overly emotional characters, underage pervertedness, over age pervertedness, storylines that seem to wander aimlessly, unecessary use of violence and hard language, children with god like powers,

    Giant walking talking transforming robots? If you said yes to any or all of those then chances are you,ve been mind F'd by the overwhelming weirdness that is anime. Perfect Hair Forever is a show that spoofs the genre and does so unregrettably well, using all of those cliches youve come to expect from an anime. This journey involvles a young balding boy named Gerald who was designed to resemble your typical main character from ( Fill in the Blank ) anime series. However I find it humorous that he looks quite similar to Yukse of Yu Yu Hakusho, which was previously broadcasted on the same network. Gerald's baldness is equivalent to his plainess and bland personality, which of corse was done intentionaly for comedic purpose. Like just about every anime ever made the main character must go on a quest of ambigous significance.

    This poor pathetic boy has to travel to find what he calls " the ninth level of power" ...indeed non specific randomness. He is guided at first by his Uncle Grandfather, yes you read that right. I beleive this is a comedic reference to the translation issues that occur when anime is subtitled or dubbed, or just a joke towards a misconception of japaneese social structure, wherein your grandfather can also be considered your uncle and vice versa.



    Uncle Grandfather is a hilarious character based on a cliche used repeatedly not only in anime but in martial arts films as well. Im talking about the stereotypical fat old drunken perverted hermet Kung Fu master. Everything about this character makes me laugh, especialy his horrible dialect and mispronunciation of the english letter L making every L sound like a W. Once again demonstrating how the Japaneese to English transition rarely comes out smooth. The show usues a large of colorful cast and characters, including a lineup of stupid anime mascots or tag alongs that always plauge our favorite shows, shuch as Inuyasha and Bleach. PHF does a remarkable job presenting just how annoying anime mascots can be and have little to no effect on the plot. Speaking of the plot which usualy involves a quest and a villian,often gets side tracked along the way. Then there are entire episodes that are basicaly throw away material because they focus on characters or events that have no significance to the overall plot and were merely put there to buy the animators time. PHF is an example of the how anime can go wrong, but at the same time manages to entertain you with its unique williams street style humor invited by shows such as space ghost and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Theres plenty odd one liners that you have to rewind and get a good listen to wrap your brain around, and bad english phrasing to hold your attention and make you burst out laughing for no apparent reason.



    With only 7 episodes thus far the story manages to almost work itself out, although a bit confusing and insanely ridiculous the characters and events still stay true to themselves and the universe in which they take place. PHF includes several musical sequences filled with special effects that will cause you to question your sobriety, and overall state of mind.The Lyrics of such are about equal to the incoherent babbling of a radio talk show host. Trippy ecstacy inspired psycadelic sequences will catch you off gaurd and make you forget what is supposed to happen next. However all this is intentional and a ploy to make you release any intention you have of taking the plot seriously. Afterall its supposed to be a satirical parody. Overall its short and worth a couple laughs not as a disrespect to anime but instead as a comedic perspective.

    You'll want to laugh again and again at the poorly drawn characters, ridiculous story, fool hardy script, and splendid voice acting, and mature content youve learned to enjoy from shows like Sealab 2021 and Squidbillies.moreless

  • what was Adult Swim thinking

    1.0
    This is possibly the worst show i have ever seen in my life. The animation is terrible looks like its from the 1980s,the plot is horrible, and seriously y do i need english subtitles the show is in ENGLISH. Not to mention the subtitles do not match half the words they are saying.



    The storyline is terrible, when the plot doesn't jump from random pointless scene to scene it follows the life of a balding teen, Gerard on a quest to gain perfect hair. Having no focus whatsoever may work for some shows aqua teen hunger force for example but not for this one its just too retarded. Also the animation is poor, seeming to only have cared about making Brenda hot and ignoring everything else. Just another one of adult swim's super flop shows.moreless
  • Who doesnt want PERFECT HAIR FOREVER.

    9.5
    This all ties in to the male desire for the perfect head of hair and they want it at all cost - they will pay thousands of dollars for plugs and transplants!





    I love the way its tied to other series like 12 OZ MOUSE, Space Ghost Coast to Coast and others. What everyone wants to know is one burning question: What the H E Double Toothpicks is on Tuna Mountain and how ill it help the follicly challenged Gerald? I suspect it may have something to do with Gerald scoring for the 1st time with a woman. But thats just a guess.





    It, like 12 OZ MOUSE, though not nearly as deep, is a multi layered wonder. Will we find out how Uncle Grandfather's (what a name!) mistress Brenda started the CAT-BUN WARS? She is the hottest animated character since White Debbie on SEALAB 2021. Plus she reminds me of Uma Thurman from Kill Bill the way she sliced off Geralds ear - the kept it in a box! Ive had a thing for sword wielding women ever since.





    The weird assortment of characters only adds to the richness and depth of this creation. Looking forward to viewing the next 16 episodes. Hopefully they will air on Cartoon Network and not just online.moreless
