Critic Consensus: Happy! certainly isn't for everyone, but its appealingly oddball concept and strong performances from Chris Meloni and Patton Oswalt make for a gritty, dark comedy with definite -- albeit unusual -- appeal.

News & Interviews for Happy!: Season 1
The two form a cute, classic odd couple, and Happy certainly makes for a memorable partner.
Actors are supposed to take chances, and this is a guy who's willing and able. More power to him, even if Happy! overloads on shock value the way Hallmark annually overdoses on sappy holiday cheer.
At times, it's almost desperate in its desire to shock, and mistaking insanity for wit. At other times, it's clever and twisted in ways that could become addictive for the right audience, preferably one at least partially intoxicated.
Meloni is so much fun to watch and Oswalt is so genuine that the inherent cartooniness of the series is actually enhanced by a pair of mismatched cartoons.
It's rude. It's cruel. It's violent. It's messy. It's funny. It's all of those things. But, it's also far smarter than anyone is going to give it credit for.
