The Baskervilles (partially found animated series; 2000)
The Baskervilles is a British/French-Canadian animated children's TV show about a British family living in the most twisted theme park in the world. The show was originally created by Nick Martinelli and Alastair Swinnerton, and eventually distributed and co-financed by CINAR (now DHX Media) and designed, produced and co-financed by Alphanim. The show aired on Teletoon from 1999 to 2001.
Plot[edit | edit source]
When a wealthy man made his fortune convincing the world that bad is good and good is bad, he got bored of his success, and wanted to have some fun with his fortune; he created a huge theme park as a slice of life look at Hell, called "Underworld: the Theme Park." Disguised as the Devil and calling himself "the Boss", he sunk to new lows in deviant behavior, but it wasn't enough; so he invited a nice family to live in Underworld, for the sole purpose of torturing them. But when his skeletal right-hand man, Kevin directed the Baskervilles his way, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
The show is almost a mirror image of The Munsters, where instead of a family of monsters trying to live in a human suburb, it's a human family trying to fit in a demonic city, where all the rules are the opposite of what they were back home.
