Editorial Reviews

The world probably does not need yet another parody of Pulp Fiction, Easy Rider, or The Godfather. But if profane and perverse puppets perform them, well, then one more wouldn't hurt! Cats aren't the only ones with multiple lives. Greg the Bunny has gone from New York public-access-TV cult fave to Independent Film Channel interstitial personality to failed sitcom star. But there is life after Fox. Greg, along with Warren the ape and Count Blah, returned to IFC to contribute twisted takes on movies. This two-disc set contains 14 parodies that brilliantly capture the essence of such auteurs as Woody Allen (whose Annie Hall is recast as a love story between Greg and a lobster), Oliver Stone (Natural Born Killers), and, in the insanely creepy "Daddyhood," David Lynch (Eraserhead). Most of the approximately 15-minute episodes are funny on their own. You don't have to have seen Auto Focus to enjoy "Sex, Button Eyes, and a Video Ape," which charts Greg's Bob Crane-like descent into homemade video porn addiction. But it does help to be well versed in the Coen brothers' oeuvre to fully appreciate "Ya Know, for Kids," which comes complete with references to Raising Arizona's yodeling soundtrack, Miller's Crossing's John Turturro "squirting a few" to avoid execution, and Fargo's infamous woodchipper. There are cheap laughs in hearing puppets drop the F-bomb, and inherent shock value in depictions of puppet sex , but in the best episodes, the genius is in the details that invite repeated viewings. In "Sex, Button Eyes, and a Video Ape," for example, there is a fleeting glimpse on a barroom TV of Shadow of the Vampire, starring Willem Dafoe, who also co-starred in Auto Focus. And it's a truly inspired moment in "The Godpappy" to cast Kermit the frog in the Johnny Fontaine part, crying to Don Blah how he can't get an audition with Jim Henson. Welcome back, Greg. It is comforting to know that you can't keep a good bunny down. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

The IFC cult favorite finally arrives in a 2-DVD set containing 14 episodes of classic film parodies made by deranged puppets.

Fresh off the heels of his Fox sitcom, Greg gets back to his edgy IFC roots with old pals Warren the Ape, Count Blah and Seth Green for film parodies of some of Hollywood’s most classic films.

Watch as Greg tunes in, turns on and drops out in Sleazy Rider, Warren goes on a bloodthirsty rampage in Naturally Sewn Killers and Count Blah takes a bite out of crime in The Godpappy!

This is not the Fox sitcom. This is not for the family. This is the Greg The Bunny: Best Of The Film Parodies 2-DVD set: sex, violence and videotape. WARNING: Includes scenes of graphic violence, illegal drug use, nudity…and some puppet sex.

As seen on the Independent Film Channel from 1999-2000.

Special Features:

• 2 Featurettes
• Commentaries on all 14 episodes by show creators
• Deleted scenes
• Gag reel
• Photo galleries

5.0 out of 5 stars Adults Only September 11, 2006
Greg the Bunny returns in this two disc collection of his parody series on IFC> If you are a fan of the FOX series or just Greg in general, then you will want this collection. It has many many funny moments, but it definitely ISN'T for the young. It is nothing like the FOX series when it comes to content. Not only does it have drug use and nudity, it has a heaping helping of cusing. Overall, if you are a fan of the FOX series, this is a have to have only if you aren't offended by adult material. My favorite sketch is the Pulp Fiction parody. They are great!

5.0 out of 5 stars This *is* the original show November 1, 2006
Greg the Bunny might as well be nicknamed "Energizer" - he just keeps going and going. The Greg the Bunny show started on cable access, graduated to pay cable with a short interstitial show on IFC, then moved to network on Fox (the other DVD available on Amazon), and finally back to IFC with more shorts. This DVD is a compilation of some of the best of the pre- and post-Fox film parodies. If you like your puppets twisted with a pinch of pathos, this is a must-get. Just don't let your kids watch it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I know this was said before... September 9, 2007
But this is not for children!Take this advice to heart this is not anything like the Fox series with the exception of some characters.

Now on the actual review:

It is a great compilation of some of the greatest film parodies my favorites being Martian Serum Seven From Mars (Ed Wood),The Godpappy (The Godfather),Ya Know For Kids! (Fargo), Daddyhood (Eraserhead), and Dead Puppet Storage (Pulp Fiction).

Despite what many people think and as one reviewer put it just a pale shadow of the "original tv show". Actually IFC first came up with GTB and sold it to Fox then Fox tanked it and IFC brought it back...This actually has episodes of the Original show from IFC like the 13th step Blah and so forth.

All in all great DVD great show...the only reason I gave it a 4 was because they should've really put the 30 min. special where they brought the show back...the vegas comeback as I call it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest Show Ever!! January 3, 2007
I have the Fox series as well, and this DVD is so much better. I really like unedited humor though, hence my added enjoyment. The best parts are the commentaries and interviews. I bought 5 of these to give out as Christmas presents. IFC has a winner with this, it is only too bad more people don't know about it.

I definitely recommend it and all other Greg The Bunny stuff.

Since when did network constraints actually foster MORE creativity? I'm an enormous fan of the original Greg the Bunny series, and found this new set of pseudo-parodies sophomoric and inconsistent by comparison. Too bad... the thinking behind this new collection seems to have been, "It just gets funnier every time the F-bomb is dropped by a puppet, right?" Sorry. There are a few unexpected glimpses of comic brilliance, but honestly this is not what I had hoped for as a follow up to such an amazing, clever, and original show.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even close to the series. May 19, 2009
Verified Purchase
LOVE Greg the Bunny (the show)
I don't feel the same way about this travesty though.
Inferior writing and poor voice talent.
The cheap production is hardly gallant.

How about a haiku review
------------------------
Has a few high points
and Greg the Bunny is there
but you should skip it

5.0 out of 5 stars This ain't Sweetknuckle Junction! December 10, 2013
This has to be the funniest film parody collection I've ever seen. It's hilarious to hear Warren drop the F-bomb! If you've ever seen Pulp Fiction, you MUST see Greg do the Ezekiel 25:17 reading, and have a chance to see under warren's helmet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
This was a short lived show. My wife and I loved it and could not understand why such a funny show was canceled. After all these years since it was canceled we still laughed our behinds off again.

This is exactly what I expected it to be; Funny as hell in places, but too inconsistent to warrant a higher score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally the IFC version of the show
This is a nice collection, but it's a shame that it's only a 'best of' and not the entire series. It would be nice to have had the public access shows from the early days on here... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Puppets
Overall, not a bad collection of shorts. Doesn't quite pick up where 'Greg the Bunny' left off, but considering that each segment is designed as a parody, it's understandable. Read more
