Product Description

Brak Show, The: Volume One (DVD)

Amazon.com

Long before his stint as an intergalactic pirate, and later, as an addled sidekick to Space Ghost on Cartoon Planet and Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, Brak was just a naïve, feline-esque kid living with his parents, his pal/nemesis, the evil mantis Zorak, and a massive warrior robot neighbor in the suburb of Spacetown. Fourteen of his misadventures have been compiled on this weird and frequently hilarious two-disc set, which also features a bundle of extras, all highlighted by Brak’s irrepressible need for song. Written and produced by SG: CTC writers Jim Fortier and Pete Smith, and featuring several performers from that series as well (including Andy Merrill as Brak, C. Martin Croker as Zorak, and George Lowe as Brak’s Dad), The Brak Show echoes its predecessor’s penchant for absurd, stream-of-consciousness comedy; episodes hinge around Brak putting on a musicial ("Psychoklahoma," featuring Charo!), rescuing his mom from a lovesick alien blob ("Mobab"), a staring contest ("The Eye"), and using a time machine to finish his homework ("Time Machine"). If the premises seem too silly for words, the writing and performances (especially Merrill and Croker) are both giddy and clever, and in a very odd way, accurately evoke the anything-goes imagination of pre-teens. The show’s credit sequences, which spoof popular sitcoms from the past (Laverne and Shirley, Petticoat Junction), add another layer of quirky charm.

Volume 1 compiles the entire first season of The Brak Show, and tosses in three episodes from Season 2 for good measure (the episodes are presented out of their broadcast order); commentaries by Smith, Fortier, Merrill and Brak himself are featured on three episodes, while an odd audio-only radio play of an unaired pilot is heard over a fourth. Clips from his short-lived variety show, Brak Presents The Brak Show Starring Brak, and a terrific 20-minute barrage of his best moments from Cartoon Planet and SG: CTC, round out the extras. So much Brak in a single package may be too much for the casual fan, but for the Brak obsessive in your life, this will be comedy nirvana. --Paul Gaita

The disks worked very well, audio and video were perfect.

Ok, it's very simple, I'm going to assume that you liked The Brak Show and that is why you are interested in buying the DVD.

"The Brak Show" is a spinoff of "Space Ghost Coast To Coast," but is completely different in content, concept, and character development. This is a wonderful little set of offbeat episodes that will delight and amuse. The best part of "The Brak Show" is the interplay of Brak and Zorak, particularly when they interact with others. Of all the episodes on the set, I love the episode starring Mr. Tickles, the goldfish owned by Thundercleese. Brak makes a mess of the situation, ultimately having to meet the brother of Mr. Tickles: Don Tickles, Notary Public. Despite the scheming, Thundercleese is not fooled, and Zorak gets his hilarious comeuppance. I liked this episode so much than when I was recently given a Beta fish, I named him "Don Tickles, Notary Public", which seriously made my petsitter stop to ponder the situation.

There are a lot of extras included with the set, and they will all be entertaining to the "Brak" fans. Not everyone likes this show, as it is overtly strange, but for those who do, this set is a treat.

I think if you're a Brak fan like I am, then you'll buy this set regardless of what people say here. But if you're still wondering, or still reeling from the blandness of Spaceghost's first season DVD...

This DVD starts you off by warming you up with hilarious menu music sung by Brak. He's got a song for every page in the menu. My favorite is his languages page where he goes "Well, there's English... AND THAT'S ABOUT IT!!! 'Cuz we're American everybody YEEEE-HAAAAW!!! And there's different subtitles in French and Spanish, but that's only for those who can read! YAAA-HOOO!!!"

In the extras there's a bunch of his commercials and funny clips during his segments on Space Ghost. Here you get to watch the crew perform "Don't Touch Me," "Scat Sandwich," and other great tunes like "I'm A Cucumber" and "Highway 40."

If you've seen and love the show, then there's nothing left to say about the cartoon itself besides the fact that it's freakin hilarious. The storylines and characters are original and different from other adult-oriented cartoons, since most other adult cartoons rely solely on shock and outrage to force the laugh out of you.

To me, what makes this show interesting is the fact that Brak is transformed from an evil and diabolical character from the old version of Space Ghost... to a whiny, endearing and innocent little boy who is placed in the middle of adult situations and dialog.

There's Dad, a tiny Cuban-esque man who always has some sexual innuendo; Zorak who constantly tries to corrupt him; Mom, the mother-figure who tries so hard to maintain Brak's innocence, but goes on an evil streak herself; and Thunderclese, a robot warrior neighbor who, in my opinion, is Brak's only true friend.

Put these characters together and you get nothing but laughs and an appreciation of original adult-situated cartoon humor.

The only down side of Cartoon Network's /Williams Street's zany and madcap Space Ghost Coast to Coast was the live guests. Maybe Zorak vaporized them because they were nowhere to seen on the excellent spin-off show Cartoon Planet (long awaited on DVD). Until those shows make it to disc, here's The Brak Show, the first inkling of great things to come. The other inklings came on audio CDs, The Brak Show Starring Brak and Space Ghost's Musical BarBQue. The sky's the limit with the Brak Show, which opened each episode with a parody of some 'fifties sitcom. Among the splattering of extras among the fourteen shows, you also get a couple previews of Cartoon Planet, which only makes fans all the more eager for the antics of Brak, Moltar, Zorak, Space Ghost and the gang to make it to DVD.

I have shown my aging tapes of The Brak show to many, many people who always start by saying, "WHAT... is THIS?" and end up cackling uncontrolably. Then, they torture me in the most pitiful, begging, pleading tones to show it to them again. And now, I am overwhelmed with joy that these delightful morsels of brilliance (especially, PSYCHOKLAHOMA) are now available for everyone to see.

The Brak Show is a one-of-a-kind treat. I wish Andy Merril enjoyed doing the role more, because if there's one thing we all need in these troubled times, it's MORE BRAK! Thank you Cartoon Network for releasing this volume into the wild. Hooray!

Like Sealab 2021, the Brak Show is another program from the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim lineup that was terribly underrated, although this show didn't last as long. Starring Space Ghost: Coast to Coast sidekick Brak, the Brak Show focuses on the intergalactic feline's pre-teen life in his home of Spacetown. Living with his look-a-like mother and miniature father, and hanging out with his best pal Zorach, Brak gets into the kind of misadventures that those who faithfully watched Space Ghost: Coast to Coast would expect. Unbelievably absurd hijinks with risque humor, the Brak Show fit right in with the Adult Swim lineup, with hilarious voice overs from Andy Merrill as Brak and C. Martin Croker as the evil mantis Zorach. Like Adult Swim's other shows, the Brak Show isn't for everyone, but this handsome DVD set (which actually includes decent DVD extras) is a must have for fans of this underrated series.
