''Mosquito'' was a surreal and positively wacky experimental Swedish television show that focused a lot on the very latest within visual effects and other film tricks. It was hosted by one Thomas Gylling and ran from 1998 to 2002. Spiritual successor of Gylling's previous show Tropicopop, which ran from 1988 to 1992. Similar in style and content, it featured odd music videos and animation from all over the world, but with less focus on fancy CGI (for obvious reasons).
