Shameless Plug Saturday: Lloyd The Cat

I’m sure most of you are already familiar with The Cinema Snob. How can you not be when he’s one of the major reviewers on Channel Awesome next to The Nostalgia Critic and Linkara? His specialty is reviewing obscure films (mostly grindhouse and vintage porno movies) while making even more obscure movie references with a heavy dose of sarcasm. (Seriously, most of the references he makes goes right over my head!)

If you’re a fan of his reviews, you probably know that the Cinema Snob, Brad Jones, owns a cat named Lloyd who sometimes makes brief appearances in his videos. Apparently Brad and his fans love Lloyd so much that he decided to turn him into the star of his own animated series, Lloyd.

In this animated series that bears his name, Lloyd plays an anthropomorphic version of himself working as a private investigator who goes on wacky misadventures solving mysteries, most of which are based on the movies that Brad has reviewed, including Nukie, The Geek, and most recently, Cannibal Holocaust. Lloyd is given the suave voice of Brad himself, while many of the other characters, both regulars and cameos, are voiced by Brad’s fellow reviewers like Linkara, Phelous, and Film Brain.

If you’re a fan of Brad’s dry wit and sarcasm as the Cinema Snob, you’re sure to love these animated shorts, which are brimming with his notable sarcastic humor. So far, there’s only been three shorts, but we can only hope that there are more on the way. If you haven’t started watching, I highly recommend that you do, especially if you love the Cinema Snob reviews. Or film noir. Or cats. Definitely if you love cats.
