Short-Lived Shows: Brak Presents the Brak Show Starring Brak

by Adam Finley, posted May 24th 2006 9:08AM
brakYou know how The Brady Bunch was a decent enough show, but then they pushed their luck a little too far with that Brady Bunch Variety Hour nonsense? Even diehard fans had to say, "Okay, seriously people, that's enough." Well, that was sorta my response to Brak Presents the Brak Show Starring Brak, which aired as part of the Adult Swim block and lasted for only two episodes in 2000, placing it chronologically between two much better series featuring Brak: Cartoon Planet and The Brak Show (not to be confused with Brak Presents the Brak Show Starring Brak). The show utilized Brak's singing "talent" quite a bit, just as Cartoon Planet had, but it essentially felt like a gussied up version of Cartoon Planet (although we did get to finally see the lower half of his body, which was always obscured on Cartoon Planet). Of course, I say this as a huge fan of the nonsensical, stream-of-consciousness ramblings that Brak so gleefully delved into, but Brak Presents the Brak Show Starring Brak, much like its title, seemed to cross the line from goofy to just superfluous.

I wish that Brak would have made more episodes. I think that "The Brak Show Starring Brak" should have made more episodes.

they played it at an 8 or 9 pm timeslot during a regular Cartoon Network primetime schedule. I remember once he had either Brandy, or Mya, or one of those famous black singers back then on the show trying to teach Brak to dance or something.

I have one of the Brak albums in my car, and listen to it every now and then for a pick me up. The track he does with the Chieftans is actually pretty good...
