How's the chemo going, Brad?
Bad, must be why I still have facial hair =)
LOL.... You poor baldy thing. Every time I see you, I can't help but think 'you must have the coldest widdle ears'. :P
at least you're still funny. there are plenty of funny comedians and great actors who are bald. hell, I think you can be a spokesman on a commercial and still look awesome. maybe you can be the new spokesman for dos equis.
in either case, Happy Thanksgiving. here's a video for everyone at Team Snob to enjoy - The A&W Mr Dumass Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMe3WDmxBEI
You must be freezing.
Cartoons back then got everything wrong, from what pilgrims wore to what they eat. Hell, they'd teach you to feed your pets stuff that would kill them, just like Food Fight.
I watched the fuck out of old cartoons as a kid. As an adult, all I see is a long string of overused tropes, & memes I'll never understood before the internet like "eat at Joe's" & "Killroy was here."
I really need to check my grammar before I post >:P
all is forgiven. sometimes I need to check what I'm typing before I post it. like the obvious typo I had bellow. but then again, I think everyone gets the message one way or another. in either case, it's cool to see people remembering this cartoon as a child. the last time I've seen this was probably on a VHS tape about Easter and was released by Family Home Entertainment or aka FHE. the only reason I remember that was because it's the same company that released the VHS tapes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
racist or not, these cartoon shorts,in the 30's to the 60's, are unapologetic about what they're saying. they're by far the best things ever animated.
endlessly funny, beyond it's time. maybe even funnier now, now that we live in a different world. they are comedies that truly stand the test of time.
i just wished cartoon network would still play them.
Oh God! I remember watching this as a kid, many times in fact. Which probably explains why I'm not as fond as Looney Tunes as most people. This was actually funny to me, as opposed to the same annoying characters doing their schtick over & over.
But hey, to each his own, as usual.
"The Matrix is telling my brain this is turkey jerky!"
Another funny riff Brad! It's a good thing because I'm watching #MST3KTurkeyDay all day today! Who's with me?
another job well done. strange as it is, I think I've seen this cartoon before on a VHS tape. it's been far too long to remember what specific VHS tape it was on, but I still recognized the animated short when I started watching this review which by the way has extremely funny. Happy Thanksgiving Brad & the rest of Team Snob, and thanks for bringing me back to an obscure animated short that I vaguely remember from my youth.
Oh man, this takes me back to when I was really little and would watch Tex Avery and Tom and Jerry cartoons (unedited with the Mammy Two-Shoes character intact) on a local TV station. I guess that's where my love for cartoons started out from.
I really do love your riffs, Brad, though I always wish others would join in. I can't explain it, but riffing is better with more than one participant, & all of "Team Snob" have comedic talents in some way so why not?
Eh still funny. Happy Thanksgiving, sir!
I loved this cartoon and I loved your riff as well. I really don't know why old cartoons aren't riffed more often considering some of them have such juicy bits of controversy that beg for a comedic beating. Either way, this was an awesome Thanksgiving riff. Almost made forget I have work in four hours....almost.
im watching old midnight screenings and i see the jerrid guy,and i know you had a bad fallout with him but,have you guyus moved on? are you friend again?
i geuess not but i thought i would ask.
also someone wrote about that you have chemo?
is that true? i mean i wonder seriously.
soerry for bad typing im drunk right now but love you mann
Don't have the answer to the Jerrid stuff, but no, Brad doesn't actually have cancer.
He shaved his head for a movie he's making.
Not gonna happen =)
You know what? I'm happy.
Brad, you finally decided your gonna break bad?
Sounds like a movie opportunity.
This comment has nothing to do with the video (although it was awesome) but more to ask Brad if he's seen Predestination. Brad, you have to watch this movie, it is exactly your kind of weird. Trust me, you need to see this movie.
Hello friend,my Twitter advances must not have been transmitted correctly.As a journalist i was hoping you could critique the 1983 film "Cocaine:One man's seduction"like i previously said it'll blow your fuckin mind so it will. Regards email@example.com
Not sure if it's just this cartoon or if it's the Tex Avery style (considering that I was just a mere child when Cartoon Network stopped showing "The Tex Avery Show"), but I feel like this short had too many jokes going on too quickly. When it comes to other cartoons, like "Looney Tunes" or talkies from the MGM library, they tend to slow down more, and the audience can process everything.
If anyone is more familiar with the Tex Avery cartoon style than I am, can you explain if I'm wrong or not?
the joke about the pilgrims being divided into democrat and republican camps actually has an interesting story behind it: in 1939, hoping it would boost retail sales by starting the christmas season early, FDR moved thanksgiving's date from the last Thursday of November to the second-to-last.
Republicans thought that was ridiculous, called the celebrations on the moved date "Franksgiving", and continued to celebrate thanksgiving on the old date, so from 1939-1941, what date you celebrated Thanksgiving on became a political thing.
Before the "War on Christmas" was the "War on Thanksgiving".
Thanks alot Obama!!
Christmas was simply engaging in some punitive cross-border raids on Thanksgiving
Somehow I had a strong feeling that Joe was going to eat them.
Never trust a Bear who always talks about food, he's probably trying to kill you in some sort of witty fashion like the fox who ate the gingerbread man.
OH, that's SOOOOO RACIST! Ha you race pussy anyway excellent job with the short it was one of my favorite cartoons growing up and as a big fan of Tex Avery you do it justice. oh and by the way I proudly voted for Bruce Rauner over that retarded tax and spend liberal shit head Quinn. I know you are a Democrat Brad but for gods sake aren't you tired of the high taxes and having speaker Mike Madigan run rough shot over the whole state? sorry for the rant this was a little bit late but hey Merry Christmas brad to you and you're loved ones
We watch 'em... We riff 'em...
