You have to have a love of the truly absurd to appreciate Wooserâ€™s Hand-to-Mouth Life. If you havenâ€™t the stomach for non-sequitur humor, rapid-fire stream-of-consciousness storytelling, or tongue-in-cheek references to all sorts of anime and cultural memes, youâ€™ll be lost in the first three-to-four-minute episode, and you wonâ€™t have enough breadcrumbs to get home. So youâ€™ve been warned. Leave while you can.
Still there? Then read on. Wooser is a cute animal thing with button eyes, a button nose and big floppy ears who is known for such rhetorical gems as â€œThereâ€™s nothing as good as food someone else is paying for,” and â€my favorite things are meat, money, and girls.â€ Heâ€™s stuck on the couch, is a lout, a pervert, a neâ€™er-do-well, and yet, he somehow enjoys the constant company of four cute girls along with a darker version of himself known as Darth Wooser, a raccoon, and some birdlike creature that has no name, but is often spotted in Wooserâ€™s company. Weird enough for you, yet?
