is also very cleverly written.i like the fact that it makes fun of
society and our way of life.i don't agree with certain philosophies on
the show,but that doesn't mean i like it any less.i also thought the
voice casting is brilliant.the show didn't last very long,and i'm not
sure why,but it sure was great while it lasted.for those of you not
familiar with Dilbert,he started out in a comic strip.he's an engineer
at a huge company.and like hundreds(or thousands)of employees)he spends
his day in a cubicle.there are no walls and no doors,except for the
boss,of course.what the company actually does is anybodies guess.there
are a great mix of characters in this show.other than the boss,i won't
go int any detail here.lets just say that each character's quirks make
for some very interesting and very funny moments.as for the
boss,well,he's dumber than a fence post,but very likable.some of the
stuff he comes up with are brilliant in their stupidity.you'll
definitely be scratching you head a lot.when you add all the components
of the show together,you have one brilliant result.i highly recommend
"Dilbert".you will be holding your gut from laughter a lot.i give it
In the strange adventures of Dilbert (Daniel Stern) and friends... er, coworkers, they travel to the muddy, backward country of Elbonia, search for Dilbert's long-lost dad in the mall, create anthrax throat drops ("My throat is moist... and the raspiness is gone... GACK!"), try to name a product that doesn't exist, deal with a black hole, and battle tiny people who are stealing the office supplies. Their souls are sucked out by their company, and a cat rules over Human Resources. And through it all, the megalomaniac Dogbert (Chris Elliot) somehow manages to arrange things so that the disasters aren't too outstanding.
Several supporting characters have enlarged roles. There's the violent, big-haired Alice (Kathy Griffin); lazy Wally; naive, dumb Asok, the idiot pointy-haired boss (Larry Miller), and Loud Howard (who can shatter glass with his booming voice). Other favorites like Catbert (played by "Seinfeld's" Jason Alexander) crop up from time to time, as well as other cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Jeri Ryan, and others.
The animation is amusing and quite faithful to Adams' original animation (although Dilbert has a mouth here). And the humor is deliciously, delightfully twisted -- without losing the corporate edge, the scriptwriters kept in the sort of bizarre occurrances that make this so funny. Several scenarios are, however, included from the strip -- and sometimes even expanded (such as the Dadbert-in-the-mall episode).
Everyone's favorite bespectacled, pointy-tied, potato-shaped engineer is still funny on the small screen. "Dilbert: The Complete Series" is a must-have for cubicle serfs and technogeeks.
The voice acting is excellent. The characters all sound just as they would be expected to when reading the comic strip. Daniel Stern as Dilbert, Larry Miller as the clueless boss (who had to have been based off of one of Scott Adams' bosses), Larry Charles as slacker engineer Wally, Kathy Griffin as Alice, the triangular-haired female engineer, and Chris Elliot as Dilbert's sidekick Dogbert, not to mention a parade of guest stars, including Tom Green, Andy Dick, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jason Alexander. Put simply, this show had talent to burn.
After occasional reruns on Comedy Central, I am jubliant to see this comedy jewel now available on DVD. The quirkiness and humor of the comic strip is definitely present here, as well as the savage skewering of workplace politics and procedures. The show's highlights include the first episode, the anthrax cough drops bit was inspired, a Y2K-themed episode (remember all that fuss about the end of the world?), frequent visits from evil Mr. Catbert (voiced by Jason Alexander), as well as a guest appearance by Jerry Seinfeld as an insane computer in charge of a computer-by-mail company, a la Dell. My favorite episode has got to be the merger episode, which has Dilbert's company merging with aliens from outer space (the funniest bit had to do with a mexican restaurant/corporate pickup bar).
I think very highly of this show and think that you should give it a shot. You owe it to yourself.
That is the beauty of Dilbert as a whole. Every working stiff in the world can relate to him. Sometimes it's your "cow-orkers" that always seem to be lacking in intelligence, or sometimes it's your Pointy-Haired Boss that comes up with some kind of half-baked idea. Sometimes, it's even both!
The cast was incredible with such stars as Chris Elliot, Larry David (the creator of Seinfeld), Kathy Griffin (late of the Brooke Shields' show, Suddenly Susan, and whose character, Alice allows Griffin to steal the show), and the overlooked Jason Alexander (Seinfeld's George) as evil Director of Human Resources, Catbert.
Overall, an excellent way to unwind when coming home from the office. Even better when enjoyed with some "adult beverages"!

Brought for my engineer boyfriend. He loves it. I don't actually care for dilbert but it looks good and he enjoys it so worth owning. :)Published on Dec 10 2013 by Korinna
The comic strip is way better than the series. I guess a good thing doesn't always translate well to TV. This is not one of those DVD's we can't wait to watch.Published on Jan. 28 2013 by Linda Bezooyen

I bought this DVD because I had fond memories of the series. But there's a reason they only broadcast it once a week: it's bloody depressing. Read morePublished on March 6 2004 by Lynn S. Hendricks
I like my day to day Dilbert calendar. And I'm surrounded by folks with Dilbert "wallpaper" strips all over doors and cubicle walls. Read morePublished on March 4 2004 by Aaron
to bad it was on UPN where it was doomed from the get go. At least we got 30 very entertaining episodes.Published on Feb. 23 2004 by Jared Wolfhope
I have been a fan of Dilbert for awhile now. The TV series brings Dilbert to life. Dilbert can now do the things a three icture comic strip won't allow him to do. Read morePublished on Feb. 19 2004 by Mr. Bey
The Dilbert TV series is truly a riot. It has both the fun of office space, along with the incredibly looney deaths that only a cartoon can provide (black holes created by... Read morePublished on Feb. 16 2004 by kybernetes
