All Rise...

Judge David Johnson wonders if Captain Kangaroo is the godfather of this mob.

The Charge

You will roo the day!

The Case

Kangaroos. Who doesn't love them? They're tall, furry, and have awesome pockets where cute little kangaroo children hang out. Some of them even box. Aside from the occasional awful Anthony Anderson live-action comedy, what have kangaroos ever done to us beside be cute and athletic?

Well, now that you mention it…

Apparently, there's a darker side to kangaroos. Where we might look upon these animals from afar in our kangaroo-less world and yowl in delight, over in Australia, they're not so enamored. In fact, kangaroos in all their mob glory have turned into quite the bane on society, loitering in public areas, jumping into the road, and causing numerous traffic accidents.

How do we bring man and beast together in peaceful coexistence? That's the point of this particular PBS Nature installment: exploring the root cause of kangaroo mischief (natural and otherwise), studying their migration patterns, and addressing them within the confines of a wildlife sanctuary.

Kangaroo Mob is an interesting program, mainly because it tackles subject matter I had never heard about. Kangaroos as a plight on urban life? Seriously?? They're kangaroos for crying out loud! Not pigeons. Anyway, I hope it all works out for everyone involved. Thanks for the heads-up, PBS!

The DVD: 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, 5.1 Dolby Surround, and no extras.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. Hop to it!

Did we give Kangaroo Mob a fair trial? yes / no
