Too Many Cooks! - Adult Swim

11 minutes of crazy. I suggest watching it without knowing anything. Stick with the whole thing, it starts weird and goes from there.


Too Many Cooks

Too Many Cooks sitcom theme nightmare

It goes to so many different places that the first minute is not nearly indicative of the whole thing.

And now I can't get that damn song out of my head.

I suppose it really goes off the rails about 4:30 in.

Someone got bored while smoking, and convinced Cartoon Network to let them air this home video.



Going in not knowing is the best way. This has potential as the new Rick Roll.

For a while now, Adult Swim has been using the Tuesday-through-Friday at 4:00 A.M. time slot for one-off productions such as this (a new one each week, with the same one airing four days in a row). Most so far have been parodies of infomercials, as befitting the time slot.

Unfortunately, there's no umbrella title, so you have to set a manual recording if you want to DVR them all. Next week's is called "In Search of Miracle Man," and then the week after that is "Smart Pipe."

Thanks for posting that! My nephew was trying to explain this to me yesterday and really couldn't do it justice, obviously.

Weirdly entertaining.

When I first saw the link to this, I watched a couple of minutes and thought I got the joke. I was wrong. Now I've watched the whole thing and... it's weird and wonderful.

Good behind the scenes interview

http://www.vulture.com/2014/11/too-m...he-scenes.html

Before you read it, watch it again and look for all of the scenes
Spoiler:
the machete guy

appears in before showing up as a main character. Awesome.

I made it for 3.5 minutes, and then I said to myself, self, there's 8 more minutes of this left, what are you going to do? I opted out and watched the latest episode of Selfie instead. Might as well get something to savor in my life.

I don't blame people who gave up before the 4m mark. It does seem like you know what's going on and you don't want to commit another 8 minutes when you already got it.

I'll just say, for those who gave up early, you do NOT know what's going on

I watched the whole thing and I'm not sure what's going on, but in a good way.

I had to go back and see when the crazy killer dude made his first appearance. It was waaay earlier than when I first noticed him the first time through.

I like that nerds have pointed out that the killer dude is in a painting hanging on a wall behind one of the actors in the Dynasty style intro.

I loved it. To me it's an animated version of a great cult movie - The Holy Mountain.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDdsSW20NhU the full movie, NSFW
