It took me a few episodes before I caught onto the humor, but it’s gotten to where The Brak Show cracks me up. I’ve just recently gotten access to cable, so I’ve never seen him on the Space Ghost talk show or anything before, but I fell in love with his zany antics based on this show, alone.
One of the things I like about it, is that it pretty much describes my thought process throughout my entire later childhood, 8 to (sadly enough) 18.
…okay, maybe not so much after about 14 or 15
The second episode, Diff’rent Braks, really demonstrates that, from my love of simple pleasures, such as food (again, sadly enough, I do believe I might have broken into song when I found out we were going out to a restaurant I like) and the procrastination of homework indefinately due to video games, and of course the whining about that when it became too late to do the homework. I remember having many a conversation with my friends about going back into time to “kill” homework.
Anyway, screw that. What are some of your favorite quotes from the show?
I personally love just about everything that comes out of Dad’s mouth:
Dad: So, then I get a letter that says “Please stop sending devilled eggs to the Bishop.”
Mom: Maybe you need to change your recipe, dear.
Dad: My recipe is perfect! … The Bishop is a fool…
Dad: Brak, let me tell you a little story. Long ago, in the days when the buttery lobster walked the earth… he was RULED by the delicious crab.
Mom: Oh, don’t tell that story, he’ll have nightmares.
Brak: No, I won’t! What happened to the buttery lobster, Dad?
Dad: He was strangled! By his own bib… Many people suspected the delicious crab, but he was nowhere… to be found… unless that’s him RIGHT BEHIND YOU!!!
Brak: OH NO!!
Dad: Look out!
Brak: (screams incoherently then hides behind Mom)
Dad: Aha! I fooled you again, boy! Go change your pants.
