‘Brickleberry’ is equal parts summer camp sex comedy, bigoted sight gags, and gross out humor all supported by a cuddly little bear cub.
Created by the horridly clever comedian Daniel Tosh, ‘Brickleberry’ is set in a national park that is better described as a slaughter house with trees, for all the animals the rangers directly or indirectly murder.
Each of the characters plays a part in this eco-genocide. There is the main character Steve who is dangerously idiotic, and at one point burns down half the forest to find his car keys.
Then there is Woody Johnson, a man with the vaguely euphemistic name and war crimes in his past, and who has more animals mounted in his home then there are in the park.
‘South Park’ is the show that has changed the way people look at animation and for that matter satire.
No one is safe and all must be mocked. The show is dominated by a chubby sociopath named Eric Cartman. Eric has the sort of egomaniacal murderous inner thoughts that would make Charlie Manson look like Mr. Rodgers.
The thing that makes the ‘South Park’ and the town it’s named for so special is that it attracts media personalities like liquor attracts college freshmen and insurance salesmen.
Because of this every episode is essentially pulled from the headlines and prescient to the times making the show seem as smart as it is raw.
‘Family Guy’ is an animated show that has done its best to earn the stamp of adult animation and prove that the best way to make friends is to mock them relentlessly.
Similar to shows like ‘Brickleberry’, ‘Family Guy’ pulls no punches and like ‘South Park’ for some reason the little town of Quahog attracts a strangely high number of famous people.
Of course the brilliance of the show is found in several places including: Seth McFarlane’s voice acting, the ubiquitous use of the cutaway gags, and stand out characters that are written with more intellect and pathos than say characters in a show like ‘Brickleberry’.
Really when it comes to writing alone Brian Griffin, the Griffin family dog, is a bit more charming than Malloy the malicious bear cub.
Imagine a world where monsters were real, now imagine having to stand in line next to a blood mage at the DMV to get your driver’s license and that the only people working at the DMV are demons because all DMV’s in the world are literally hell.
In the world of ‘Ugly Americans’ we follow one of the few humans left, Mark Lily as he navigates a life where his girlfriend is half demon, her boss is literally the Devil, and his roommate is a zombie.
Mark works at the Department of Integration as a social worker where he helps introduce the monsters that have flooded the world into “human” society.
Here are a couple of shows that have some of the same qualities of ‘Brickleberry’; one that has the same sense of humor but isn’t animated and another that is all animation but without the touch of Daniel Tosh or a linear storyline.
As the mind behind ‘Brickleberry’ you can imagine what a crap cluster Daniel Tosh’s thoughts might be.
Now imagine that the only things in his head are a collection of internet fail videos and a litany of vaguely racist, sexist, and misogynistic jokes.
In ‘Tosh.0’ he basically insults every demographic under the sun by going through the internet and picking apart how the human race manages to embarrass itself.
‘Tosh.0’ explains why the comedy of shows like ‘Brickleberry’ is so raw.
‘Trip Tank’ is a show like ‘Brickleberry’ born from the ramblings of drunken comedians, strung into hilarious and offensive clips of animation.
‘Trip Tank’ seems to be the place where Comedy Central’s most popular comedians go to push the envelope and see how close they can come to having the FCC send armed drones to circle their houses.
One of the best things about the show is the presence of top comedians like Zach Galifianakis, Wayne Brady, and Bob Odenkirk.
Series similar to ‘Brickleberry’ push the limit of what is tolerable for American censors, by utilizing the power of animation.
How far do you think animators can push the margin of acceptability?
