Victor and Hugo, Bunglers in Crime

Show Summary

The adventures of two incompetent French criminals whose schemes always seem to go wrong. The two brothers run their organization "Naughtiness International" out of a ramshackle van that is always badly parked. Their pet parrot, named Interpoll(y), serves as a combination telephone and answering service. They also frequently call upon the assistance of a mechanic named Monsieur Meccaneaux, who despite his name does not appear to be French. And when put upon by his brother, Hugo often seeks solace from his pet earwig Penelope, who lives in a matchbox in his pocket. The show featured several guest appearances by characters from other series made by animation studio Cosgrove Hall. Victor and Hugo themselves were originally two characters in another Cosgrove Hall series, Count Duckula. Then called Gaston and Pierre, they first appeared in the episode "The Hunchbudgie of Notre Dame," in which they attempted to sell Nanny the Eiffel Tower and steal the Mona Lisa.

  • Victor and Hugo was a classic! It is too underated, they never really gave it a chance... I say bring it back!

    Victor and Hugo was AMAZING. OK, not as good as DangerMouse, or Count Duckula, or any other Cosgrove Hall shows, I'll give you that, but all the same, it was fantastic. I mean, it was just crazy, and just looking back on some of the quotes still make me giggle. "Bon." "What?" "Good." "Oh..."

    People, however, do have different tastes. If you like Cosgrove Hall (I mean the old - and good - ones) then you'll probably love Victor and Hugo just the same, even if it did have a short lifespan. Those who haven't seen many C-H cartoons before, well, you might like it. The best thing about V&H is that, like all other C-H cartoons, they don't care about whether it's politically correct or not!

    They never gave it a real chance to get a number of fans, and the fact that only one episode has been released on DVD is just appalling. Those who know and love Victor and Hugo, like myself, pine for more episodes. Perhaps Fremantle media should stop sitting on their thumbs and give us back Victor and Hugo!!moreless
