Old-skool-style skratchedelic high jinks in space in this daffy cartoon powered by a typically double-jointed soundtrack by virtuoso turntablist Q-Bert. Introduced by a series of chapter précis, our hero disguises himself as a dentist to do battle with the minions of Lord Ook for a legendary skratch weapon of enormous power - seemingly a wristwatch-sized record deck with which he can vanquish his enemies through the sonic arts. Rifling through a nostalgic catalogue of '80s B-Boy and kids' toy totems (graffiti, breakdancing; Transformers, Atari games, Lego; the occasional mouthwash ad), it's tongue in cheek trashy, fanboy fun - but wouldn't be much to write home about without Q-Bert's scratching.
