If you like completely bizarre (almost Pythonesque, at times) humor, this'll appeal to you. The claymation is not quite "Chicken Run" or "Wallace and Gromit", because despite being 3-dimensional clay characters, they're also flat. Very strange.

It features regular voice cameos by a number of (mainly UK market) celebrities and a totally mad-cap little theme tune.

The best character, IMHO, is Vince, a tiny, insane, orange doggie character with one eye far bigger than the other who pops up on the screen usually to say little more than "Spaghetti!" or to erupt in a burst of operatic singing.

The Rex homepage has pics, details and a short trailer clip.
