The Brak Show, Vol. 1
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
What happens when two adults get together and have children? And what if those children grow up and go to school? That's the just-crazy-enough-to-work premise behind "The Brak Show." Also, Brak is in it.]]>
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

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.
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 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!

Better than season 2 which lacked in content of which I recieved first. It was a good show when it aired but I was younger and high on fruit loops. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Ranger Bob

I've probably watched this 10 times over. I'd never seen the show before I bought this, but it's so ridiculous and hilarious. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Katari
That dumb cat guy who was in a few episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast and said enough dumb stuff to get a cartoon where he could sing about beans and poor, monkey-related... Read morePublished on December 30, 2013 by S. Raymer
An often very funny, absurdist take on the family sit-com. but in this case the lead is… well I guess

Seriously unfunny. The writers were definitely trying too hard to be funny and it shows. I made it through two episodes and I wasn't happy about that. Read morePublished on November 8, 2013 by Jim
You could buy 10 comedy movies and not get as many laughs as you get here. Honestly I get tears in my eyes just when I hear Braks voice. Read morePublished on May 20, 2012 by DB
