Drawn out Friday Time Waster

These days, young people don’t do anything other than sit and watch mindless reality shows.  

In the good old days we did nothing but sit and watched mindless cartoons. 

Now Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein (3rd Rock from the Sun) created a reality show cartoon. Just like Big Brother or Real World from MTV, the show is about a bunch of cartoon characters that have to share a house with each other. 

Each character on the show resembles another cartoon character from real life. For example, Captain Hero is like Superman and Wooldoor Sockbat is obviously a reference to SpongeBob SquarePants. Every character’s animation is done the same way the original character is animated. 

Due to the complicated animation, Drawn Together is one of the most expensive shows on Cartoon Network with a lead time of 9 months! For a comparison – a South Park episode takes only four to five days to produce! 

All though Drawn Together was the show with the second highest viewers (after South Park) they got cancelled after the third season. Reasons cited where the high production cost and the fact that so many advertisers pulled their advertisements due to the content of the show. 

O, did I mention this show is wild. It’s fucking hard core. No topic is taboo and this show is not for kids. They would learn a lot though. 

Through its run of three seasons the show got a lot of flak from advertisers and morality groups who placed pressure on the producers of the show to tone down the profanity. 

Thank goodness the producers did not cave into pressure and kept producing this rocking show! 

Below is the first episode. Unfortunately the quality is shit. It seems that lawyers have been faithfully patrolling YouTube to prevent people from uploading Drawn Together episodes. It’s really hard to find episodes so this will have to do. Note to the lawyers – you guys suck!
