Based on the novel "Oms en serie" by Stefan Wul and brought to unsettling life by Rene Laloux and Roland Topor, Fantastic Planet is posited as an allegorical tale but succeeds better as a journey through a realm and a civilisation so incredibly far removed from our own. The brilliant production design and haunting visuals convey this alien nature beautifully, the brutal environment with its bizarre customs only thrown into starker relief by the similarities we can see to our own society.

Straight from the creative minds behind Scrapped Princess and Strait Jacket comes the adventures of everybody's favourite caveman-speaking Django impersonator. Chaika proves to be a whale of a fun time, moving along at a sharp clip but never so quick to leave a viewer behind and striking a good balance between action, comedy and character as it goes. So fast does it fly that it isn't long before the show burns through all its source material and leaves us with a majorly abrupt ending, but such is the strength of the series as a whole that it doesn't feel like a wasted journey. Listen in for more on all this plus the SHOCKING REVELATION behind the characters' naming conventions!
