I've been enjoying 'The Ricky Gervais Show' on HBO, an animated version of the podcasts produced by Ricky, Stephen Merchant, and the true star of the show, Karl Pilkington.

It's already in line to win several Toobits Awards: Best Tooniverse production, Best League of Themselves (on a technicality of course), and Best Theme Music.

If you've seen the show, then you know what the opening credits look like, especially the title card for the series: So this could all be in my head, but doesn't it remind you of the title cards to two previous classic series in the animation genre? Ricky's "Tooniversion" would fit into the Hanna-Barbera genre, especially. For alls I know, in the Tooniverse he could be descended from Barney Rubble! (And yes, I know Bam Bam Rubble was adopted.)

Just sayin', is all........
