Before the days of Robot Chicken, there was the Mr. Hell Show. A 2001 animated British sketch comedy based on a character from a line of greeting cards by Hugh MacLeod. The show tends towards a middleground in terms of connectivity between the sketches, with occasional links provided by interjections from the show's title character, a scheming, mysogynistic and rather out-of-touch-with-humanity devil known as Mr. Hell. The sketches themselves provide parodies of various aspects of culture without providing direct references all the time, with occasional recurring sketches.Has become a Cult Classic after a long-delayed DVD release, having only lasted 13 episodes.Needs a Better Description

For example, her dress blows upwards slightly during a heated chase scene, and a nearby vicar and a bishop arrest the title character for indecent exposure on those grounds (which, in those days, amounted showing an ankle).
