Three Hams Will Certainly Kill Him...Three Hams...
Robert I. Hedges | 06/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

""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."
Hooray for Brak!

"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!"
