It was released direct to video so it kinda counts as TV right? Anyway... I found the animation style to match Millers drawing style close enough. However, the voice acting was lifeless and joyless.  The script did not use the "thought bubble (even though they were mostly squares technically)  they could have put those in as voice overs ...that's where the intensity and humor was.. but it's totally gone as is the acting - but the actors can act, its the director who told them to be totally lifeless. 

While on the voice acting, which was a huge detraction for me, the vocal characterizations were, for the most part, indistinguishable from one another. There was nothing of note to denote which character was speaking (except the females) Even then, the women speaking were all so flat.  I honestly do not see how the fan critics on rotten tomatoes praise the voice acting at all.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
