As you might remember a few years ago, Fox made the mistake of cancelling Family Guy and then they realized their error when they released the show on DVD. It sold like hot cakes and they wound up redeeming themselves by bringing the show back. Well a few years ago Comedy Central cancelled their animated reality show Drawn Together, and they have sort of redeemed themselves by letting them do a Direct-to-DVD movie that is out now. Well they can redeem themselves even further with your help, if enough of us buy The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie on DVD, Blu-Ray and for download then maybe they will do like Fox and bring back the show.
The movie takes place shortly after the show got cancelled with the cast finding out that they have been cancelled. Once they realize they are no longer on the air, they will do anything and I do mean anything to get back on TV. But there is one problem, someone wants them erased and they sent I.S.R.A.E.L. after them. The Jew Producer is doing everything he can to keep them from being erased, but with so many people against them will he be able to save his project and himself? Along the way the Drawn Together cast will do and say things they could never ever do on Comedy Central in a million years including a three-way 3D sex scene with 3 women. It is the wrongest sex scene I have ever seen that was not in a porn movie, and it is so good! There are so many naughty and raunchy, but hilarious things I can tell you they do in the movie but it is better to enjoy them by watching it. That and you can see what other cartoon characters’ images they destroy. Let just say you will never be able to look at the same way!
I think it will be a lot of fun to see how they will be able to air this movie on Comedy Central one day, but why waste your time on the free censored version when you get the uncensored one for cheap!
Included in the DVD that is out today are these special features:
Featurette: Drawn Together True Confessionals
Featurette: Drawn Together: The Legacy
Featurette: Anatomy of an Animated Sex Scene
Featurette: Re-Animating Drawn Together: From the Small Screen to the Slightly Bigger Screen
Featurette: D.I.Y. 3D Glasses Additional Scenes: Deleted Scenes
Other: Drawn Together Minisodes
Commentary: Audio Commentary with Matt Silverstein, Dave Jeser, Jordan Young & Kurt Vanzo
What I loved most about the special features is finally getting to see and hear the cast behind the voices. None of them looked anything like I thought they would especially that Spanky Ham…oh wait Adam Carolla looks exactly like him! But seriously it is a lot of fun to put a face and voice to a voice. Plus you get to see just how funny the people behind the voices are.
Besides meeting the characters, you get to meet the two men behind the show and how it came about. They also talk about how they found out they were cancelled, how they got the movie, how they came up with the plot for it and who came up with the 3D sex scene.
For you boys they will teach you how to make 3D glass with a topless woman. I don’t think any straight boy will be concentrating on the lesson, but I now have my own home made 3D glasses that I used to enjoy the movie!!!
Not only did the movie come out today, but so did the official Drawn Together soundtrack for the show and the movie and it is a must have. The CD is uncensored and let’s just say these songs are not meant to be listened to in public. Well I take that back, you know when you are waiting for a parking space and the person is taking forever to pull out? Well if you blast this CD, they will move their a$$es just to make the music go away! While that turtle might not like it, you will find yourself addicted to it and singing lyrics that will get your mouth washed out with soap and whose mouth doesn’t need to be cleaned every now and again! Seriously even though I felt very dirty after I listened to CD the first time, I can’t stop listening to it and I know you will feel the same way!
I got a little Christmas present today when I was MySpace and read a bulletin from the Drawn Together Fan Page, the trailer for The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie trailer is finally out!
If you think Family Guy pushes the envelope, you won’t think it does as much as it does after you watch Drawn Together. And that was when the show was just on Comedy Central and they had network censors restricting what they could do. Now they are getting their own movie and they can boldly go where they never dreamed they could and we get to watch the ride which I am sure will be shocking with a capital S-H-O-C-K-I-N-G!!! I so can’t for April to see this movie, but I should prepare that I will see things I never thought I would see or ever should have.
Rabid fans of the cult animated series “Drawn Together” cannot wait to get their hands on this huge, dirty package. “Drawn Together: The Complete Series – Extended & Uncensored” DVD box set, released via COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, arrives in stores nationwide on Tuesday, November 17 and will also be available at http://shop.comedycentral.com.
This six-disc DVD box set of “Drawn Together: The Complete Series – Extended & Uncensored” is packaged as the ultimate “Party In Your Box” with exclusive games “Drawn Together: The Board Game!” a physical trivia game, “Get the DT’s Drinking Game” and “Drawn Together: Truth or Dare” which are all unique to this gift set. The DVD box set features all 36 episodes completely uncensored and includes the following bonus features: “The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” red band trailer; audio commentaries by the cast and creators; behind-the-scenes interviews; a karaoke sing-along; a “Censored/Uncensored Game;” and deleted scenes.
The eight stars/housemates of “Drawn Together” represent iconic archetypes from the world of animation and include: “Captain Hero,” a not-so-moral do-gooder reminiscent of the Saturday morning TV super heroes of the 70′s; “Clara,” a 20-year-old sweet and naive fairy-tale princess; “Toot Braunstein,” a black-and-white pudgy heart throb from the 20′s; “Foxxy Love,” a sexy mystery-solving musician; “Spanky Ham,” a foul-mouthed Internet download pig; “Ling-Ling,” an adorable Asian trading card mini-monster; “Wooldoor Sockbat,” a wacky Saturday morning whatchamacallit; and “Xandir,” a strong, young gay video game warrior. The characters left their animated “reality” and entered a new world where their cartoon universes collide with a bang, combining different styles of animation and different personalities, all “drawn together.” This was COMEDY CENTRAL’s first original animated series that was drawn traditionally and in 2-D digital ink and paint animation.
Comedy Central’s Drawn Together that was cancelled way too soon, but today the network announced it is getting a movie!!! Drawn Together is one of the wrongest cartoons that went to places, I can’t believe they were able to go to and with a movie I can’t wait to see how much further they push the envelope because as you can see from the above clip they pushed it really freaking far!!! Here is what Comedy Central said we can expect from the beyond out there minds of Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser!!!
“The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” stars the incorrigible cast of the most hilarious animated reality show ever to air on basic cable. When the mystery-solving musician, Foxxy, notices she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped – something theyve never been able to do before – they realize that their show has been cancelled. Determined to get back on the air, they venture to such far-off lands as Bedrock, a Fairy Tale Village and the fantastical Make-a-Point Land, all the while outrunning their enemies who are hell bent on keeping them off the air and are prepared to use any means necessary to do so.
“The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” is bigger, badder and uncensored and certainly lives up to its tainted heritage and provides the audience with a not-so-healthy heaping of what everyone has come to know and secretly love from the show. Namely, copious amounts of drunken-revelry, taboo-busting and cartoon-on-cartoon violence.
This movie is going to be so good, in a really bad bad bad way!!!
BTW if you never watched a single episode of Drawn Together, rent or buy the DVDs just to see how awesomely politically incorrect this show is! I promise you will feel guilty laughing at some of the jokes, but don’t worry I won’t tell how much enjoyed something you know you really shouldn’t have!!!
Please watch one of my all-time favorite shows Drawn Together tonight at 10:30p on Comedy Central, I promise you will be laughing your a$$e$ off! This animated shows is one of the most brilliant, wrongest and raunchiest shows ever. You will see nothing else like it on broadcast TV. Nothing is sacred to them, they make fun of everyone and everything!!!
Just a little synopsis of the show, it is an animated reality Big Brother like show with a cast of characters from some of our favorite cartoons of all-time that have no holds barred! So tune into Drawn Together tonight at 10:30p, so Comedy Central won ‘t cancel it like they di to David Spade’s The Showbiz Show.
As many of you know Comedy Centralâ€™s Drawn Together is one of my favorite shows. It is an animated reality show that makes me laugh my a$$ every episode. Seriously they push the envelope time and time again, whether it is a live sex-ed demonstration or masturbation techniques or a gay bash for one of the characters coming out or the effects of steroids on the male genitalia or Indian Casinos or racism in cartoons through the years and so much more. You never know who or what they are going to offend, but what you do know is they are going to have you laughing in hysterics.
So when I read on the Drawn Together fan page on MySpace that the show will most likely not be coming back for a fourth season, I was devastated. I want to save this show because it sincerely is so brilliantly wrong and there is not enough of that on TV today.
I decided to contact show creator Matt Silverstein to find out more about his inspiration for the show, is it coming back and can we do anything to save it? Here is what he had to say and his answers are just as funny as Drawn Together!!!
How did Dave Jeser and you come up with the idea for Drawn Together?
We were working on a crappy project that wasnâ€™t going anywhere with a network that doesnâ€™t even exist anymore. The show they had us working on didnâ€™t have a strong premise or a real concept and we were getting sick of trying to mold this non-idea into something real. Finally one of us said, â€œThis isnâ€™t even an idea for a show. And idea for a show would be, like, doing an animated reality show.â€ Then we both started talking more and more about what an animated reality show would be like and thought we should write it up. Plus we both love cartoons and reality shows, so it seemed like the perfect show for us to develop. Anyhow, we emailed the idea for Drawn Together to our agent. Our agent said it sucked and he could never sell such a shitty idea. So it sat on my desktop for a year until we started telling other writers the idea and they all were said we should try to sell it. So we went behind our agentâ€™s back and got some meetings set up and finally sold it.
How did you guys go from show writers to creators? How did you pitch DT to CC?
When we sold the show, we were running Crank Yankers for Jimmy Kimmel who left to do his late night talk show. Crank Yankers back then was on Comedy Central (itâ€™s now going to be on MTV and Iâ€™ve seen the new ones and they are GREAT). That was our connection to Comedy Central. And before we pitched it to Comedy Central, we met a young animator for the Simpsons, Jordan Young. He wanted to get out of animating and start writing comedy. We told him if he drew the characters and helped us sell the show, weâ€™d hire him to write. So he drew up some great characters and we brought those designs into Comedy Central and they let us write a pilot and make a short presentation tape. The presentation tape sucked but somehow we convinced them to pick up the show anyway. And we hired Jordan and heâ€™s an amazingly funny writer.
How did you pick the characters? Was there any character that you wanted to parody that was not approved by Comedy Central?
To come up with the characters, we first started with our favorite reality television types. Like the Mormon girl from The Real World. She had been really sheltered her whole life and would say things like, â€œI never met a gay before.â€ And then we thought of the typical fairytale princess and how she too was locked away in a castle and not exposed to other cultures. So we paired them up. Betty Boop and Amy from Big Brother 4, Crass Internet Cartoons and Puck, Ling-Ling andâ€¦ no one I guess. We just wanted one of those on the show. As far as parodies not approved by Comedy Central, there are many characters the legal department has asked us to stay away from â€“ like Mr. Magoo and Roger Ramjet. I am not sure why. I guess some people are just more likely to sue, so we stay away from them.
Comedy Central says you are too dirty now, what has CCâ€™s Broadcast and Standards said to you in the past?
Believe it or not, Broadcast Standards and the censors are our biggest supporters. They fought to make the show TVMA, so we could keep the dirtier material. We love them and love working with them. But the network is scared of the FCC. Weâ€™ve heard them worry, â€œIf we donâ€™t police ourselves, the FCC will! Then we canâ€™t do any of this.â€ Plus the PTC has been sending letters to the advertisers and all that just makes it difficult to do the kind of show weâ€™re doing.
What is something you got through B&S that you thought you wouldnâ€™t? What are some of the things that you have not been able to get through? Did you ever say how the heck did we get that on?
I canâ€™t believe we got Spankyâ€™s growing erection (in the pilot) on the air. That was insane. We put that in assuming it would have to be blurred, or cut, but no one said anything. I am sure we wouldnâ€™t be allowed to do that now. Comedy Central has changed since we started the show.
You actually have tackled some serious issues like coming out, sex-ed, steroid abuse, cutting, and masturbation in a responsible way through humor, how hard was that for you guys?
Hey, thanks for noticing! Most people say South Park tackles real issues, while Drawn Together is nothing but fart jokes. And, sure, thatâ€™s true a lot of the time, but we do try to satirize some issues that donâ€™t involve farting. And those episodes, like Clum Babies, are usually our favorites. Theyâ€™re also really fun to write because they are usually based on our own real life experiences. We do (or at least did) have a cutter on the staff. And one of our writerâ€™s fathers tried to kill himself right before season three, and we thought that would be a great storyline for Ling-Ling and his dad. Plus Dave was molested.
What is your favorite episode or scene of DT?
The board of education musical number, the end of clum babies, and the montage of Captain Hero and his mother where he gets raped at a frat party. But my favorite episode overall has to be The Afterschool Special. Or the one where Toot gets the Alzheimerâ€™s. Or Lost in Parking Space Part One. But Live Action Cow is the best episode if youâ€™re stoned.
How long does it take to do an episode? When would be the latest that Comedy Central could tell you that you were picked up for a fourth season?
It takes us about 9 months to give birth to an episode because the animation is done traditionally, by hand. And according to our really, really shitty contract, Comedy Central must pick up season four no later than six months after the airdate of the very last episode. So that means they can wait until June 2008.
Has the second half of third season been completed and when will it air? Any spoilers?
The second half of the third season is almost all done. And Comedy Central is going to sit on them until October. So, sadly, youâ€™ll have to wait to see how they (or who) escapes the parking lot, meet the Drawn Together Babies, hang out with a lot of cereal box characters, discover Heroâ€™s arch nemesis, and watch Spankyâ€™s fatal attraction with a spider in â€œCharoltteâ€™s Web of Lies.â€ Oh and Ling-Ling is put into a foster home.
What has Comedy Central told you about the future of the show?
They are annoying. Despite solid ratings, strong selling DVDâ€™s, lotâ€™s of iTune purchases, and they have said that maybe if all their new shows fail, then we might come back.
What can the fans do to try to save the show? Do a Family Guy and buy a ton of DVDs? Send hair like Felicity? Tabasco sauce like Roswell? Water like Invasion? Put a Ferris Wheel near-by like Everwood? What?
Sadly, I donâ€™t believe anything can be done. All I ask is that you cherish the time we had together.
What is next for Dave and you?
Unemployment. Have you seen this show? Who the hell is going to hire us now?!!? Seriously. Weâ€™re fucked.
Sincerest thanks to Matt Silverstein for taking the time to answer my questions. I know we be seeing his twisted sense of humor on TV again soon!
Please tune into Comedy Central to watch the show and purchase the DVDs for yourself and all of friends! It worked for Family Guy, let’s try it for Drawn Together!!!
Drawn Together Season 4, Season 2 DVD, Season 3 Return Date
Alot of information was recieved from the E-Mails Matt (Creator) genorously sent out to the fans asking questions. Nothing is really looking good for the future of Drawn Together. Read the info provided to find out more. Thanks for the info Matt!
Season 3 Return Date
Season 3’s return date was somehow released as, at first March 21st, then February 28th. It’s not known how people came up with these dates. But the actual fact is that season 3 will return in October 2007. No final date is currently set. On November 15, 2006 Lost in Parking space aired. The mid-season break started and fans thought it would be a short one like the last one was. In season 2 Super Nanny aired as the half way mark on December 7th, 2005. It then returned with Terms of Endearment January 25th, 2006. It was nearly two months of a break. Now Drawn Together season 3 is set for an 11 month break. It’s not just that that is making people mad but it’s also that it is a two-part episode and part 2 of it is being shown 11 months later. This is not the fianl date. Comedy Central hasn’t officiall announced this. Thats what they just told Matt & Dave. But that is what it will be close to since thats what they told the creators.
Season 4 of Drawn Together is very unlikely. Comedy Central told Matt & Dave that it was "too dirty and too expensive" for their network. Season 3 will continue in October, 2007 and based on popularity of the second half and the season 2 DVD release, going along with the airing of the second half of season 3, it may not happen. If season 3b and the season 2 DVD sales are popular then there is a better chance. Plus Matt stated that Comedy Central said that if they’re new shows "Naked Trucker" and "Halfway Home" are unsuccessful, that Drawn Together season 4 has a good shot. Naked Trucker began January 17, 2007 and it’s season will most likely be over by October. Comedy Central has time to think it over. Just cross your fingers!
Season 2 DVD
The season 2 DVD has had many release dates. They ranged from October, 2006 through Spring 2007. But really these are all incorrect. It’s quit obnoxious how Comedy Central is taking everything that has to do with Drawn Together. There will be a season 2 DVD. It just won’t be out until October, 2007. It was dated to be released along with the premier of season 3b, which airs in October, 2007 as well. What happened with the original idea for the release was that season 3 was set to air in January, 2007 but ended up airing in October, 2006. In October the DVDs weren’t ready so they had to cancel its release date. It is now set for realease in October, 2007 (and remember this isn’t false because it was said by Matt, which was informed by Comedy Central). It doesn’t have a final release date but somewhere around October, just like season 3b’s air date. Matt said "We’ll try to get it sooner, but Comedy Central is being annoying" so they will try to get it out before October.
Drawn Together is one of the funniest shows on TV and we must save it! If you have not seen this show, I highly suggest you rent or better yet buy the DVD. This show is so wrong and so dirty, but that is what makes it so great! So if we start sending to message to Comedy Central now, maybe we can just save this show! Long live Drawn Together!!!
Drawn Together co-creator/producers Matt Silverstein and Dave Jesser made a bet to down a shot of ipecac just before going on Fox Reality Channel’s “Reality Rewind,” hosted by former MTV VJ Kennedy. Hilarity insues. Comedy Central Insider
OMG that is one of the funniest things I have seen in a really long time! Those two are sick f()cks and I love them even more! Their show is so wrong and it is great to know that they are too!
Drawn Together, the first reality TV cartoon is back tonight for it’s all new third season on Comedy Central at 10:30p! This is one of the wrongest shows on TV, but you will be laughing for weeks as you describe the wrong things they do on the show. If you are politically correct, do not watch this show. If you are not, this is a must watch!
