The show is a spin-off of Cartoon Planet, a variety show featuring classic cartoons and skits, and stars the character of Brak, a humanoid cat-like alien, and his family.

The show features the wild and wacky adventures of Brak, his father, and mother, as they navigate the ups and downs of living in their suburban home in the world of Space Ghost. Brak's father, simply known as Dad, is a hardworking family man who tries his best to keep things in order, while Brak's mother, Mom, is the stabilizing force in the family, often being the voice of reason in the household. In addition to Brak's immediate family, the show features a host of supporting characters, including the next-door neighbor Zorak, a praying mantis-like villain from the Space Ghost franchise who is always up to no good.

The series stars voice actors C. Martin Croker as both the voice of Brak and his father, Dad, as well as other recurring characters, Carey Means as Zorak, George Lowe as Space Ghost, Marsha Crenshaw as Mom, Joanna Daniels as Brak's love interest, Thundercleese, and Don Kennedy as various characters throughout the show's run.

The episode features original songs such as "I Love Beans" and "Don't Touch Me," which have become fan favorites.

Despite its offbeat humor and sometimes nonsensical plotlines, The Brak Show was beloved by fans and has gained a cult following in the years since its cancellation. The show's quirky characters and unique brand of humor have earned it a place in the pantheon of classic Adult Swim programming.
