    At first when i seen the character the crack fox, i must admitt i did crap myself! He really is a scary looking character with needles for fingers. But once i watched the episode i realised he is one of my favourite characters. all mighty boosh episodes are weird and strange so you cant really criticise it for being odd, thats the beauty of the mighty boosh. A lot of people complain about naboo being in trouble with the head shaman in a number of episodes, but for me i quite like these episodes, so that didnt put me off this one. I like the childish humour of when the crack fox farts and knocks vince out, and i like the story the crack fox tells about himself. The funniest bit is when the crack fox stabs himself in the leg with a biro and blames it on, "it was a nazi, it was a poofter".moreless

    One of my favourite episodes to date. I think that Julian Barratt did a great job portraying the crack fox. Many people don't even know or can tell that it is in fact Julian playing the fox. While the stories resolve is a little bit off, I think that the comedy that goes on between Vince and the Crack Fox from the begining is just wonderful. You also find out a little bit more about Howard and the many lives that he has lived, even though Vince can't remember him living any of them. This episode might not be kid friendly. But its defintely funny friendly.moreless

    A really creepy looking drug addled fox (though not a red fox one of the other kind??)steals some shaman juice from the shop.(what is shaman juice? im already disturbed by the options)



    naboo is furious or as furious as a actor that bad can be and fires howard after vince lies to get himself out of trouble.

    Naboo is imprisoned and awaiting death for letting shaman juice fall into evil hands. vince resolves to save naboo and get back the juice but being a border line simpleton needs the help of his friend howard.Howard is now a binman and is bitter at having been fired for vince's mistake.



    As previously stated the howard /vince dynamic seems to have changed from friendship to a constant stream of vince behaving selfish and shallow and causing his "friends" woes .

    I dont know if ill watch the next series this ones already sucking my will to live



    Message to The boosh

    please pull it together remember when it was about being funny not about getting paid and going out with peaches geldof??moreless

    • GOOF: The Mighty Boosh famously has the UK using the European Single Currency except when Donnie asks Vince for a donation in pounds.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Vince: What are they all about?
      Howard: They're real people, Vince. Real friends. They don't toss me aside for a silver cape.
      Vince: Yeah, I'm sorry about that Howard. You know what I'm like when it comes to clothes. Remember that time I pushed that toddler in front of a Juggernaut cause he was standing on my Top Shop voucher?

    • Howard: We can't all be models. Can't be in a band, Vince. Some people have to do real jobs. What do you think happens to stocky short people with wide backs?
      Vince: I don't know. Do they lie down to sad music and die like the Elephant Man?
