I’ll bet more kids talked about it than actually saw it but it did have a reputation that got around.

I think the Candy segment worked because the humor worked and because of Candy’s delivery. Maybe if I didn’t know it was him it might not have worked as well but he could tell jokes that you would roll your eyes at if someone else said them.
I did laugh out loud when Den though he was grabbing the Loc Nar and it was the queen. Good juvenile humor.

I guess I wasn't the market for the film - I had been reading the comic for ages, and the segments were simply mediocre in comparison. Also, I personally don't like heavy metal music, so ...

I thought it a shame that American squeamishness about nudity meant that a DVD release couldn't include Corben's "Den" animated short as an extra. Heck, someone somewhere must have made a combination of the two.
