Default The PJs - Season 1 DVD Review

“Once upon a time in the projects...” From the mind of top comedian Eddie Murphy and brilliant producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer comes this stop-motion animated show from the late 90s/early 2000s that attempts to put a humorous light on living in a Detroit housing project. The PJs (short for Projects) takes place in the Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs Housing Project (named after the Welcome Back, Kotter actor) and follows building superintendent Thurgood Stubbs (voice of Eddie Murphy), the nutty people who live with him in the building, and the crazy things that happen to him. Stubbs is short tempered, dim-witted, and has a variety of health issues. Living with Stubbs (usually called “Super”) is his wife Muriel (Loretta Devine). Also in the building: elderly neighbor Mrs. Avery (Ja’net DuBois) who hates Thurgood because of the constant problems with her apartment, and brothers Calvin and Juicy-- who are surrogate children of the Stubbs’... due to the fact that their parents are morbidly obese and cannot leave their apartment. Also appearing are Muriel’s sister and her Asian husband (who thinks he’s African-American), homeless crack head “Smokey,” and a Haitian immigrant known as “Haiti Lady” who claims to have supernatural powers.

The show’s Claymation animation technique, of clay figures which are photographed one frame at a time, is skillfully done here by the Will Vinton studios. Vinton is also responsible for such things as the California Raisins.
