Brickleberry

"Brickleberry" review by Suzanne
Tuesdays 10:30/9:30C on Comedy Central

This is an animated show, but it's for adults, not kids, like "South Park" and so many other shows. I can't tell you whether you'll like it or not because comedy is very subjective. What makes me laugh will not necessarily make you laugh. I thought this was pretty funny, but my husband hated it. He's pickier than I am. He thought it was trying too hard to be like Family Guy or South Park.

Even though it's very crude, at times gross, and very graphic, and very offensive, I found it to be pretty funny. Part of the laughing definitely came from shock value, so we'll see if I continue to like it or not.

The show is set in a national park that is badly run by a bunch of idiots (see photo above). One of them is a big ugly lesbian, and another one is a lazy African American, just to give you an idea of the offensiveness. They also have an obnoxious pet bear cub. The show is produced by Daniel Tosh, who also does the voice of the bear. You may know him from his show, Tosh.0, which is very popular. I find it to be sometimes really funny, myself. This show is not as funny as that one, though, but it IS just as offensive.

Check it out, if you dare!

Brickleberry National Park is facing closure, but not if the park’s dysfunctional park rangers can help it!

“Brickleberry,” an animated half-hour series, follows the crazy bunch of park rangers as they do their worst to keep the park running. Steve (David Herman) has been “Ranger of the Month” every month for years, so he feels threatened when Ethel (Kaitlin Olson) is transferred from Yellowstone National Park to help whip the park into shape. Connie (Roger Black) and Denzel (Jerry Minor) are two unique rangers that each bring special skills (or in Denzel’s case, lack of skills) to the job, and Woody (Tom Kenny) is the hapless Head Ranger who puts nothing above his beloved park, except his adopted bear cub, Malloy (Daniel Tosh), who he’s taken in and spoils to death.

“Brickleberry” is created, written and executive produced by Waco O'Guin (MTV2's "Stankervision) and Roger Black (MTV2's "Stankervision") and executive produced by Daniel Tosh (“Tosh.0”). The series premieres 10 new episodes beginning on Tuesday, September 25 at 10:30 p.m.

NEW YORK, August 21, 2012 – Move over Yellowstone, there’s a new national park in town! From Executive Producer Daniel Tosh (“Tosh.0”) and series Creators, Writers and Executive Producers Waco O’Guin and Roger Black (MTV2’s “Stankervision”), “Brickleberry,” co-produced by Fox 21 and COMEDY CENTRAL, is a new animated series revolving around a group of dysfunctional park rangers at a second tier national park. Ten episodes kick off on COMEDY CENTRAL on Tuesday, September 25 at 10:30 p.m., following the fall premiere of “Tosh.0.”

"Brickleberry" voice talent includes Kaitlin Olson (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) as “Ethel,” the smoking hot top ranger who is transferred to Brickleberry, Tom Kenny (“SpongeBob SquarePants”) as “Woody,” the head ranger who has good intentions, but not always the best ideas, Dave Herman (“Futurama”) as “Steve,” the overconfident Ranger of the Month, Jerry Minor (“Eastbound & Down”) as “Denzel,” the African American ranger who isn’t comfortable in the woods, Roger Black as “Connie,” the unusually strong and masculine female ranger, and Tosh as “Malloy,” the cuddly, yet vulgar and spoiled resident bear. Jim Sharp and Ian Friedman are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

In the premiere episode, “Welcome to Brickleberry,” long-running Ranger of the Month, “Steve,” feels threatened when a new ranger, “Ethel,” comes to work at the park to help turn it around. “Steve” does everything in his power to get her fired, even trying to expose her alcoholic past. Meanwhile, “Woody” feels that his roommate and pet bear cub, “Malloy,” could stand to lose a few pounds and puts him on a strict diet.

 


The "Brickleberry Web site will feature episode previews, highlights and photo galleries of concept artwork from the upcoming episodes. In mid-September, the site will roll out vignettes to introduce each of the show’s main characters. The "Brickleberry" Facebook page has spent the summer giving excited fans an early look at the production including animatic shots from BentoBox Studios, as well as video and photos from the show’s appearance at San Diego Comic-Con. The page will be updated daily throughout the season with new artwork from the season.

“Brickleberry” Premieres on COMEDY CENTRAL on Tuesday, September 25 at 10:30 P.M.
 


 

NEW YORK, September 21, 2012 – COMEDY CENTRAL has turned over the controls to its Facebook fans. The brand has rolled out its multiplatform marketing campaign for its new animated series “Brickleberry,” which features the release of segments of the premiere episode based on the number of Facebook “Likes” it receives on the show’s page. This innovative approach along with the release of additional exclusive content on Tumblr, Decksi Cards and custom "Brickleberry" E-Cards will engage COMEDY CENTRAL fans and encourage them to share content with their friends. Executive produced by Daniel Tosh and series Creators Waco O’Guin and Roger Black, “Brickleberry” will premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL on Tuesday, September 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

"This innovative launch campaign taps into the savvy social media fan-base that propelled ‘Tosh.0’ into a multiplatform hit," said Walter Levitt, Executive Vice President, Marketing at COMEDY CENTRAL. "Using platforms like Facebook, Tumblr and Decksi, COMEDY CENTRAL is giving our fans the tools to become brand ambassadors for this new series."

The multiplatform marketing initiatives for “Brickleberry” include:

Facebook: “Like To Unlock”
The campaign features an exclusive look at the “Brickleberry” pilot, which is being incrementally unlocked on Facebook: with every “Like” milestone set and reached, COMEDY CENTRAL will release a few more minutes of the pilot episode. Fans are encouraged to share the “Brickleberry” page on their Facebook Timelines and invite friends to “Like To Unlock” to view more of the pilot.

“A Countdown To ‘Brickleberry’”
Leading up to the September 25 on-air premiere, COMEDY CENTRAL is posting daily behind-the-scenes stills, sketches, character designs, memes and GIFs to its Tumblr and “Brickleberry” Facebook pages. Fans can reblog the posts easily onto their own Tumblr and Facebook pages.

Decksi Cards
Partnering for the first time with a major media brand, this online trading card service will encourage users to “collect” and consume digital “Brickleberry” content. COMEDY CENTRAL’s deck currently features 17 cards, including two previews clips and four character mash-up videos. The deck will expand to 50 cards by the end of the season and active users will have the chance to unlock extra exclusive content.

Animated E- Cards
In keeping with the show’s “Nature is Filthy” theme, fans can create animated E-Cards to share with Facebook friends by selecting their preferred animal, sex position and dirty message. Once the E-Card is completed, it will appear on the selected friend’s Facebook Timeline along with a link to create and send one of their own. Also as an added bonus, the E-Cards include voiceover audio recorded by Daniel Tosh.

Additionally, in anticipation of the series premiere, COMEDY CENTRAL is extensively promoting "Brickleberry" through advertising on television, online, radio, outdoor and in subways. Also, as a part of the campaign, COMEDY CENTRAL will launch a one-day marketing stunt during the week of the premiere, sure to attract the attention of fans nationwide.

When commuters in select cities head to work on the morning of September 24, they will be greeted by more than 1,500 life-size cut-outs of “Malloy” the bear at major landmarks and intersections across the country. Malloy will be seen uttering something inappropriate and fans will be invited to visit NatureIsFilthy.com for more information.
