Did You Know?

Trivia:
Brak's father was never originally intended to be so short. An error was made when compositing a scene and Dad's file was made too small in comparison to everything else. Nevertheless, it was such a hilarious mistake that they left him they way he was.See more »
Quotes:
Dad:[mumbling in hot tub water]
Brak:I hope those are talking bubbles, buddy.

Very funny and wonderfully strange and surreal, 16 November 2013
Author: runamokprods from US

An often very funny, absurdist take on the family sit-com. but in this case the lead is… well I guess an adolescent cat-headed space alien? His father is a self-obsessed, vaguely insane, quietly indolent diminutive Hispanic human, sort of Desi Arnez on acid (the funniest element of the show to me), and his mother the same strange 'thing' that Brak is.

Not every joke works, but this is a very entertaining, surreal twist on every bad 'Leave It To Beaver' type family TV comedy. And for me it takes a big leap between season 1, which was funny and weird to seasons two and three where it attained almost Monty Python like levels of complete nonsensical, hysterically funny strangeness. In tossing out any attempt to make sense, and allowing all the rules go out the window, you end up with something you might have had if Dali and Bunuel had made a cartoon together as teenagers. (Note, I seem to be in the minority, most people prefer the earlier, lighter, less perverse version of the show).
