The Brak Show

Show Summary

The Brak Show is about the daily adventures of Brak and his best buddy Zorak, prior to meeting Space Ghost. Brak lives with his family in a lovely suburb somewhere in space. Brak gets advice from Mom (a nice lady who keeps a clean house) & Dad (a human with a Latin accent that is rather short due to a shrink-ray accident), and gets corrupted by Zorak. Brak is an honest and somewhat dumb kid and Zorak is a foul-mouthed, destruction-loving mantis. Brak's brother Sisto is also around from time to time. Their neighbor is Thundercleese, a giant robot with massive armaments, who likes maintaining his lawn. The Brak Show is a spin-off of Cartoon Planet, which was a spin-off of Space Ghost: Coast To Coast. Confused yet? It is an original series for Cartoon Network's programming block Adult Swim. The Brak show is written and produced by Jim Fortier and Pete Smith and is produced in Cartoon Network Studios. Both Fortier and Smith were writer/producers on Cartoon Network's hit, Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and later worked on the short-lived variety show, Brak Presents the Brak Show Starring Brak. Production: Williams Street Animation: Wild Hare Studiosmoreless

  • A pretty funny show.

    7.0
    This show features Brak and Zorak, two characters who had previously appeared in Cartoon Planet as Space Ghost's assistants in Cartoon Planet, technically making it another Space Ghost: Coast to Coast spin off. Whilst by now you would think the comedy is getting old, and perhaps it is, the show is still often very funny. In it Brak lives in a surburban area with his strangely small human dad, who is voiced by Space Ghost's voice actor George Lowe. He also lives with his mum, who like him is some sort of alien life form. There are other recurring characters but I don't feel the need to talk about them. To conclude if you enjoy other shows by Williams Street then you will quite likely find something to enjoy about this one.moreless
  • Years before they became deadly foes of the great Space Ghost, the quasi-cat creature, Brak, and his best mantis buddy, Zorak, were just normal kids like you and me…except for all the explosions, intergalactic visitors, and foiled follies over the existence of all mankind. They made lots of rude bodily noises, though, and that's kind of normal…kind of…except maybe that oozing mantis funk, but why quibble? Hey, it's The Brak Showmoreless

    No denying it—this one stays with you like dog doo on your shoe. The Brak Show goes beyond Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and the much-improved Cartoon Planet in that, with Brak, we get new animations of Brak, Zorak, and all the rest instead of that tiresome lot of pilfered samplings of animated SG elements from the halcyon days of the original Space Ghost and Dino Boy adventure series of the 1960s.

    No sir, this time we have new renderings, new characters, and plenty of new songs to boot! That's right—ol' Brak can't help but spontaneously break into a heartwarming verse that adds depth, meaning, and lasting impressions of the life lessons he encounters. For example, on caring for Thundercleese's pet goldfish, Mr. Tickles, Brak intones, "Three hams will kill him / Three hams will kill him / I shouldn't feed him / THREE HAMS!" You get the idea.

    OK, is it stupid? Of course it is! It's all stupid, all the time. In fact, it's sooooo stupid, it's funny! It's funnily stupid and stupidly funny.

  • More Williams Street junk.

    3.9
    Another off the wall comedy from the scatter brained weirdos working for Willams Street. What you get is recycled scenes, recycled characters,recycled sound effects, and recycled humor to the point of nausea. If variety is what your looking for, the random acts of main character Brak and freinds, may be enough to amuse you for almost 3 mins.That is if you have a strong attention span and a high tolerance for absurdity.Supposedly an adult cartoon, but you have to ask yourself why would anyone choose to watch this to occupy their time? Childrens cartoons have more flavor and ambition than what we see here.Much like its predecessor Space Ghost this shows appears to be nothing more than a pointless time waster.moreless
  • How come Zorak never got his own show? He was 10 times cooler.

    7.7
    In fact, if it werent for ZORAK this show would have sucked like a $10 Crack Ho.



    The ever malevolent Zorak is what gave this show enough gas to limp along for 3 years. It was a nice transition out of the superior Space Ghost Coast to Coast. It was sort of a SGC2C sequel. Ghost even made an occasional appearance. Its not that Brak was horrible, its just without Zorak he was pretty dull. His MOM and Dad were, well, "adequate" but nothing special.



    Did I mention how cool Zorak was? Too bad BOSTON didnt show up in their "city on a flying UFO guitar". That would have been truly spectular. ZORAK RULES !!!moreless
