The Critic is a 1994 animated American comedy series created by Al Jean and Mike Reiss. It focuses on the life of semi-successful professional film critic Jay Sherman as he navigates life, family, and love, while riffing on popular films. It was briefly revived in 2000 as a Flash animated web series.
