Captain Star (1991-1992)

A really strange and unique animated TV-show whose science fiction surface hides an absurd core. Like naive art that sometimes completely eschews perspective, this one is naive in its use of physics and other basic elements of a our natural universe. But to complain about this in such a show is beside the point, since it never strifes for realism at all. It’s use of the science fiction toolbox is entirely in service to creating it’s own, absurd little pocket universe where everything can happen. Still, the show manages to create charming characters who are caught in a situation as absurd as the physics of its universe. I really wish this one would get a DVD release so that more people had the chance to see it.
