This has actually been on Adult Swim's own site for almost two years now. They don't seem to have the full episode up right now but they have all the segments in separate clips in their permanent archive, which might be a better link since I'm sure Time-Warner's COD to the YouTube video is only more imminent now.

XQUZYPHYR, those Adult Swim clips only work in The United States. For the rest of us, there's YouTube!

Kupperman's comics, from the old 'up all night' stuff to the modern day "Tales Designed to Thrizzle" are all amazing. I can't recommend his stuff enough. (Also his writing)
Snake and Bacon should have been a show with a full run.

And music by Franklin Bruno. That alone makes it good.

"But . . . a toad's got to have a mistress, doesn't he?"

Sweet. Thanks for the link, Fuzzy.

My pleasure, gompa!

The line that made me laugh out loud: "Gosh, Teenage Grampa! You sure are the only boy here!"

I would watch Ms. Schaal in anything. I would watch her in cell phone advertisements.

Why was this passed on when Adult Swim has so much other crap which isn't funny at all?

I've watched this pilot many times over the years, and had no idea it was based on a comic. Thanks!

My reaction to the line "But a toad's got to have a mistress, doesn't he?" was twofold:

a) Wait, wha - what?
b) Well yes, come to think of it, I suppose he does.

There was something sublime about that.

I really enjoyed Kupperman's book Tales Designed to Thrizzle .

Big fan of Tales Designed to Thrizzle, Kristen Schaal is cute, and it even has David Rakoff in it. Hooray!
