The puppet ensemble is no less impressive than the "fleshies." There's Count Blah, a vampire with a Sesame Street complex and a penchant for punctuating his sentences with "blah"; Warren "Professor Ape" Demontague, a soused monkey with thespian pretensions (and an ongoing feud with neighbor Corey Feldman); Tardy Turtle, an appellation which, unfortunately, does not just refer to his lack of speed, and Susan, a monster who makes Janet Reno look like Salma Hayek. Profanity and crude behavior emanating from puppets is certainly good for some easy laughs (prepare for the worst when adorable laundry icon Snuggles enters a bathroom stall in the episode "Father & Son Reunion"). But Greg the Bunny plays it smart as well, with sly in-jokes and movie references (catch the King Kong homage when an enraged Demontague jumps on Gil's shoulders in "Blah Bawls"). The show only got better and funnier as its lone season unfolded, making its cancellation that much more keenly felt. A Family Guy-type resurrection seems unlikely, but what about a Count Blah spinoff? Until then, this features-stuffed two-disc set, complete with clips from Greg's humble public-access beginnings, cast and in-character commentaries, behind-the-scenes segments, and a new Tardy featurette, will really sock it to you. --Donald Liebenson

A show thats sadly remembered for flaming out on Fox TV in the summer of 2002. In reality, it wasn't so much that it wasn't up to par as was the network didn't set it up for success. Fox TV put it after Bernie Mac on Wednesday nights at first. Bernie Mac's demo was not going to stick around and watch GTB. Secondly, only after three weeks of reasonable promotion FOX seemed to write the show off jerking it off for sweeps then finally bringing it back for two weeks to disappear again lastly in "burn off" mode on Sundays at 7:30p for August of 2002.
Its a story of a show that screams it wasn't given a proper shot.
The show itself was brillant in a offkilter way. If you bought into the premise that puppets and people in some strange universe could share the world - it worked. If you couldn't buy into the premise - you hated the show.
Everything revolved around Greg a rabbit handpuppet with button eyes (later creepy glass eyes - FOX exec "suggestion") and his quest to find employment. On a visit to his roomates father's job - a director for fictional kids show "Sweetknuckle Junction" Greg mistakenly ends up auditioning for the program. Insanity and hilariousness ensue. Greg gets the job and the whole premise is set up. The sweetknuckle junction cast is much more jaded and prone to outrageousness than one would've expected.
The show parodied TV itself, TV execs, Childrens TV, actors, puppet love and even dared to spoof some of the sacred cows of our culture - race relations etc.
My personal favorite episode was "Surprise!" Where the cast has to lead a TV Guide reporter around trying to impress her to make Sara Silverman's character happy.Read more ›
The episodes are worth the price of admission. I find the show to be a scream. It can be juvenile at times, but hey, it's a puppet show! There are attempts made at social satire where the puppet community subs in for various other minorities, but the core humor comes from witty one-liners, slapstick, and a lot of toilet jokes. 'I made a smelly in my shelly!' - Tardy
Creator Dan Milano is extremely proud of Greg the Bunny and this is evident in the care taken with the extras. Virtually every special feature is introduced by either Greg or Warren and commentary is provided for half the episodes, deleted scenes, and the short Tardy film. Even the menus come with brand new dialogue by the puppet members of the cast. I found the featurette on how the show came into being both informative and fun, including brand new interviews with the creators, puppets, and actors. And don't miss the puppet audition tapes!
This set is a complete package. Sadly, it truly is complete. I salute you Greg the Bunny. We shall never see your likes again.
"Greg the Bunny" is not for your kids. It's for you - the person that grew up with Sesame Street and graduated to Saturday Night Live and the Muppet Show (the FIRST one).
The series concept is hysterical. The characters are incredibly original (and yet somehow familiar). And the people....this is one of the best assembled casts that's seen hit the airwave.
You have a rabbit puppet that went to school with a human geek (Seth Green) -- yes, HIGH SCHOOL! Eugene Levy is the father of the geek that also happens to direct his own kid's television show. You have Sarah Silverman - a real unused talent - as the show's network producer and Bob Gunton and Dina Waters as the two wonderfully flawed human actors on the show. Sunshine and light one moment - neurosis and addiction in the next.
As for the rest of the puppets - I don't want to spoil all of it. If you've ever been to the zoo, picture the ape reciting Shakespeare and drinking - alot! There you have it! And that's the tip of the iceberg.
I honestly think that this would have been the next "Arrested Development" if Fox hadn't decided to give "The Bernie Mac Show" more marketing dollars that year. (Much love Bernie --- you're on my TiVo every week!!!)
Alas - this is the only DVD in the series unless sales are high and they revive the show. I hear that will happen right after they bring back Cheers, Seinfeld and Friends. :)

Disappointed. What was described as an entire series was just season one, that I already have. Luckily, I love this show and gave it to a friend to enjoy. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Jessica Rasmussen
This was a truly awesome show, too bad Fox canceled it before it really gained any momentumPublished 7 months ago by Stephen Messier
Another show that was cancelled too soon. Comic genius, biting social commentary, and more make this show a keeper. But you can only get the entire series right here. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Randy
