What more can be said? Muffatti's work is stubbornly critic-proof. Like Popeye, a TV star who would fit right into Muffatti's small world, this art is what it is, and that's all that it is. Also like Popeye, it's strong to the finach. Rush out now and see "Owed to Television"; it's the best thing you'll see on TV for a long, long time.
Todd Muffatti's "Owed to Television" at the Artscape Gallery, 2226 E. Fourth St., Long Beach, (562) 434-3224. Open Tues.-Sat., 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., noon-5 p.m. Through Aug. 14. Free.
