Family Pants' Hole in 'Da Roof!
Watch as the first ever, Family Pants epic unfolds in an unimaginable web of unfathomableness! When Frank Mueller is on a quest to repair a hole in his roof with his friend Gruno's help, his wife Blanche tries to cut him off at the pass and hire alternate help to do the job correctly, but mistakenly hires circus clowns! Meanwhile, his son Nick is preparing for an animal rights meeting while his daughter Alex is looking to win money back from a bet she lost to a boxing match! Will the perseverance of humanity prevail? Watch and see! Family Pants was created and solely animated by a NJ cartoonist based loosely on his and his parents' marriage, hoping to make a few people laugh from family humor and perhaps pay the rent along the way! Family Pants' Hole in 'Da Roof is the first DVD featuring the Family Pants characters.

The only thing I would have liked was a more in depth 'Making Of' but maybe that's just me. As the DVD stands it's well worth the money. Excellent.
Father Frank is joined by his voice-of-reason wife, peace-loving hippie son and a very large, shot-putting champion daughter who would make Brook Hogan look petite (no, I swear!). Frank's partner in crime is a taciturn silverback gorilla named Gruno, who never understands what his human pal is saying but attempts to do his bidding nevertheless.
Redl embraces his fondness for early Looney Tunes and other classics by presenting his modern family of Germanic origin (nice touch) in an angular yet comfy throwback environment -- with Honeymooners-esque voices and dialogue, extremely dated decor (replete with a sweet cable box) and a jazz-infused rhythm reminiscent of sublime 60s-era toonage. This movie is packed with just the right amount of miscommunication, nuttiness and non sequiturs (chick-filled dune buggies, repairmen clowns, guys in chicken outfits) and innocence that would make fans of the old guard like Fred and Bugs and new kids like Homestar Runner and Strong Bad very happy. Also check out the commentary by the creators, they give a nice insight into creating cartoons and its colorful history.
