Question about animated series

Hey all

I have never seen the animated series, but loved sam n max since HTR.

What would you say the target audience is for the series? I would be more than happy to purchase them. But since it was aired on Fox Kids i'm thinking they may have dumbed it down.


Is it too kiddie? Or is it *funny*, like futurama/simpsons/family guy etc etc.

Although it would've worked better as simpsons-esque set up, it is unfortunately a full-fledged kids show. Except its has better plots, and the vocabulary is still at a higher level than the other stuff.

Its not exactly Sam and Max, more of a less-raunchy and less violent children's version. But as far as children's shows go, its good. Plus, in the episodes I saw, they have a lame add-on to their team in the form of a little braniac girl. I don't know what they were thinking there.

...or maybe I just imagined that.

Actually Steve Purcell himself came up with the idea for "The Geek" who was the braniac little girl, so she's pretty official I think. And yeah while the show wasn't quite as outlandish as the other Sam and Max venues, it is still well worth watching.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

I think it needed a time slot between the Simposons and Malcolm, that's where it deserved to be.

I completely agree. The simpsons is starting to suck pretty badly now, so maybe Sam and Max could just steal its slot all together.

And I can belive the braniac was purcell's idea, but I bet he was forced to add the character by the higher-ups. We all know that Sam and Max work best as a team, with the nebulous commisioner calling the shots from the shadows.

At this point I'm okay with the fact that they wanted to do a kids cartoon, but a more true-to-the-comics version of the Sam & Max cartoon would probably do really well on Adult Swim, though thats been said a few times already around here. I think that would be a better home than Fox Sundays
