Welcome to Spacetown, where Brak lives with
his Mom, Dad, best pal Zorak, and Thundercleese, his giant
robotic warrior neighbour. And who is Brak, you ask? He's
a boy, just like you and me. Except he's half cat and half
baked. Like a potato. Yes, he's a special boy. You know the
kind. They yell all the time, break into song, and cry like
an old woman with the body of a young beach volleyball player.
You like monsters? They're all here! Dance, pants, dance!...
other Cartoon Network's Adult Swim shows, The Brak Show
doesn't just reuse animated footage from an old cartoon series
Ghost: Coast to Coast or Sealab
2021). While it does borrow the Brak and Zorak
characters from Space Ghost, it sets them in an original
environment - Brak's hometown of Spacetown.
of the '60s Space Ghost animated cartoon will remember
Brak and Zorak as Space Ghost's deadly enemies. The Brak
Show is set years before they turn into evil monsters.
While Zorak is hungry for death and destruction, Brak is just
a naive young boy with other more pressing matters than controlling
the galaxy. He still talks to his childhood toy, is worried
about cutting up clams in his biology lesson and wants to
find a girlfriend.
still lives at home with his mother and tiny father. Zorak
seems to spend most of his time round at the Brak's household
- generally being nasty to Brak. And Brak loves nothing more
than to break into song at the drop of a hat.
title sequence to each episode opens with a different spoof
title based on old shows (for example Leave it to Brak,
B.J. and the Brak and Diff'rent Braks). This
is something that they obviously got bored with (or ran out
of ideas) very quickly, because towards the end of this collection
the shows title is listed as The Brak Show.
collection contains 14 episodes on two discs. The episodes
are not presented here in the order they were originally broadcast,
and also include some episodes from season two.
are some fantastic episodes in this collection, including:
In which Brak is left in charge of Mr Thundercleese's goldfish.
When he accidentally kills it he starts to panic about how
Mr Thundercleese will react.
Machine: Where Brak and Zorak use Mr Thundercleese's
time machine to go back to the point when homework was invented
and make sure it never is invented.
When Zorak throws away Brak's childhood toy, a stuffed lobster
called Hippo, Brak starts to fall apart.
Brak puts on a show to raise money in order to save a TV
presenter who is in danger. Everyone in the neighbourhood
is soon showcasing their hidden talents.
Brak is desperate to get himself a girlfriend. His mother
gives him a present from his long dead grandfather - a gift
that is guaranteed to be a winner with the ladies. Brak's
father is also excited, because today is the day aliens
are due to arrive and choose the most special human and
take them back to their planet.
Did You Move My Chair?: Brak fakes illness in order
to avoid attending school. He's not looking forward to his
biology class, where he will have to dissect a clam - to
Brak, a helpless creature who doesn't deserve to die.
are also plenty of amusing extras in this collection. I loved
the animated menus. Each page has Brak singing about what
that particular page has on it. I thought this was a great
way to make you click through all the different options. There
are also some not very hidden Easter eggs which Brak tells
you are there.
are also audio commentaries on a few episodes (well, that's
what the back of the DVD case told me, but I couldn't access
them for some reason); Adult Swim News segments read by Brak;
Cartoon Planet segments; and a radio play (which again, I
is a fantastic series that will have you rolling around the
floor laughing... well, that might be a little over the top,
but this is damn funny.
