- 4 Seasons
Brickleberry is an animated sitcom that revolves around a group of park rangers working in the fictional Brickleberry National Park. The show premiered on Comedy Central in September 2012 and ran for three seasons until it was cancelled in April 2015. Produced by Daniel Tosh, the show was created by Waco O'Guin and Roger Black, who also voice several characters.
The show is a blend of adult humor, pop culture references, and satire. It features a diverse cast of characters, each with their own unique personality quirks and flaws. The central character is Steve, the bumbling park ranger who serves as the manager of Brickleberry National Park. Steve is constantly trying to impress his superiors and make his mark on the park, but his efforts are usually met with disaster.
Joining Steve are his fellow rangers, including the lovesick Woody, the accident-prone Ethel, the uptight Denzel, and the diminutive Connie. Together, they must deal with the various challenges that come along with running a national park, from wild animals to unruly tourists to budget cuts.
One of the most standout characters is Malloy, a foul-mouthed and mischievous bear cub who is somehow able to speak and carries out schemes to outsmart his human counterparts. Another memorable character is Bobby Possumcods, a hillbilly park ranger who becomes a recurring antagonist throughout the series.
While the show is primarily a comedy, it often tackles serious topics such as politics, religion, and social issues. It does so through satire and parody, often mocking both the left and the right with equal fervor. Whether it's Denzel's attempts to start a Black Republican caucus or Woody's ill-fated quest for love, the show is never afraid to push boundaries and take risks.
Despite its relatively short run, Brickleberry gained a small but dedicated cult following for its unique brand of humor and irreverence. It was praised for its voice acting, animation, and willingness to tackle taboo subjects. At the same time, it received criticism for its crude humor and overreliance on shock value.
In any case, Brickleberry remains a notable entry in the world of adult animation, showcasing both the highs and lows of the genre. At its best, it was a hilarious and smart satire of American culture. At its worst, it was a crass and sometimes offensive series that struggled to find its footing.
Brickleberry is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (36 episodes). The series first aired on September 25, 2012.
