The 'Bu (known by older, less-cool people as Malibu) is a Web Show that was created by The Lonely Island, a comedy trio who now creates and performs sketches for Saturday Night Live. Experts in self-deprecation and nothing-is-sacred humor, the three writers (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer) are also actors in this show, which mocks a network program that also stars attractive young adults who don't have time to say the full name of the city they live in - The OC. The 'Bu is actually a show about a show, and the first episode is narrated by Frazzles, a cartoon squirrel whose presence helps incorporate 3-D schtick and makes the mockery of the teen soap opera even more sharply funny. Later episodes emphasize both the pettiness and ridiculousness of these characters' lives by incorporating plot elements such as Ninja discrimination, mob involvement, and abductions. If that's a little too mainstream for you, Frazzles offers his motto, "Hoobastank!"
