The Brothers Grunt

Show Summary

From Danny Antonucci, the creator of the hit show Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy, comes The Brothers Grunt! This short-lived comedy series featuring six brothers (Frank, Perry, Tony, Bing, Dean and Sammy, named after Antonucci's favorite singers) started out as a simple MTV station ID that got so much fan response MTV ordered 65 episodes on the spot and began selling merchandise. The show was peculiar in the way that none of the main characters spoke English. They only grunted, and subtitles were used to show what they meant. They all who wear Bermuda shorts and wing-tipped shoes and belong to a commune/monastery/cult run by the Gruntas Poobah. The action begins when Perry escapes through an underground tunnel and his five brothers are sent to bring him back before he is corrupted by the outside world. The show never hit it big with the fans and was cancelled after the third season, flung into obscurity.
