'''''Home Movies''''' is an AnimatedShow that began on Creator/{{UPN}}, then moved to Creator/AdultSwim when the block premiered in 2001. The show was a spiritual successor to ''WesternAnimation/DrKatzProfessionalTherapist'', which used the same "[=SquiggleVision=]" (at least in the first season, following seasons were done in UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash due to the fact the former style limited movement), the same "retroscripting" style of dialog, and much of the same cast. The main character was Brendon Small, and the series was created and written by [[TheDanza Brendon Small]]. As you probably already guessed, it's more or less a highly fictionalized autobiography in cartoon format. Brendon is a young aspiring filmmaker, with his cast members usually being his friends Melissa and Jason, and occasionally his mom Paula who moonlights as a creative writing teacher at a local community college ([[GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity in between firings from same said college]]). When not at home making films, the show centers around the three kids at school and their interactions with Brendon's homeroom teacher Mr. Lynch and Brendon's soccer coach, John "[[{{Jerkass}} The Jerk]]" [=McGuirk=].
