Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Cheers to Fox for even putting Greg the Bunny on the air, and jeers to Fox for yanking it after a mere season (an ignominious fate it shared with The Ben Stiller Show and Andy Richter Controls the Universe). Ripe for discovery, this cult-worthy 2002 series took its cue from Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and anticipated the subversive Tony Award-winning Muppet spoof Avenue Q by imagining a world in which puppets (or, to be more PC: "fabricated Americans") live amongst humans. Greg, a sweet-natured bunny, lives with his best friend Jimmy (Seth Green), a slacker whose father, Gil (the inestimable Eugene Levy), is the director of the "struggling," "low-rated" children's show Sweetknuckle Junction. Greg prevails upon Jimmy to get him a job on the show, but Greg inadvertently finds himself replacing the star. the washed-up Rochester Rabbit. Jimmy signs on as the production assistant to watch over Greg, and to pursue the icy network executive, Alison (comedy siren Sarah Silverman). Rounding out the human cast is gun nut Junction Jack (Bob Gunton) and ditzy, puppet-loving (and we mean that literally) Dottie (Dina Walters).

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

Product Description

Uncut, uncensored and unrelenting, Greg the Bunny stars Seth Green and Eugene Levy and is rude, crude, and stuffed with attitude. TV wasn’t ready for him. Are you? The complete series on DVD includes two never aired episodes and much more. Puppets are people too!

Greg The Bunny.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Loaded with Bonuses October 27, 2004
The show never got much time in the spotlight, but it's clear its creators and actors savored every moment of it. In addition to all 13 episodes in their intended order, the set has a great selection of special features ranging from multiple commentaries to production stills to a short film featuring everyone's favorite turtle, Tardy.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem! July 27, 2004
The Fox Channel is notorious for killing off shows with great potential. Shows such as Family Guy, Futurama, and The Tick never got to live out what should have been a long lifespan. Greg the Bunny is yet another one of these shows. But fans and television buffs should rejoice at this beautiful release. This 2-Disc DVD collection will contain all 13 episodes (including several never broadcast on TV), deleted scences, storyboards, commentaries, documentaries, and everything else you can sink your teeth into. This show was pure brilliance and I shed a tear when it was canceled. Especially after hearing that the god-awful Oliver Beene would run for another season. So whether you were one of the thousands of people signing petitions to keep this show on the air or someone who typed the wrong thing into the search engine and came across this site you should pick up the Greg the Bunny entire series for your colection. And selling for less than $25 you can't go wrong. Check out TVShowsonDVD.com or TVTome.com for more info on this and many other fine Tv shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANK YOU FOX! August 29, 2004
By Larry
Through the miracles of now-defunct file sharing services, friends and Fox's odd programming schedules, I managed to see most if not all of entire series. THANK YOU Fox for appeasing your core audience and putting out this DVD collection.

"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. :)
