During TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation, animation was enjoying new life as being entertainment for kids (with shows like ''Animaniacs'' and ''TinyToonAdventures'') and teens/adults (''The Simpsons'' and ''RenAndStimpy'', as well as CartoonNetwork airing classic theatrical cartoon shorts and 30-minute animated shows from the Golden Age of television). However, MTV's ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' was coming under fire for being a bad influence on children after a mom who lived in a trailer accused the show of driving her son to burn down their home (even though the mom didn't have cable TV) and another kid got in trouble for crushing an infant with a bowling ball he dropped off a bridge. MTV decided to temporarily cancel ''Beavis and Butthead'' to make necessary changes to the content. While that was happening, MTV went scrambling for a replacement show. This was that show, much to the horror and embarrassment of MTV and its fans.

'''''The Brothers Grunt''''' (1994-1995) was about the leader of the grunts, Perry, who had escaped. His five brothers (Frank, Dean, Bing, Sammy and Bernie) have to find him or else the brotherhood of the grunts will fall. It's a CultClassic to fans of Danny Antonucci. After this show ended, Danny would later be famous for Creator/CartoonNetwork's ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. As of 2012, the show has not appeared on VHS or DVD. However, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuswZYAsIAI there is a fan movement]] to help support the idea of releasing the show onto DVD.

* MagicalForeignWords: Grunt usually communicate through grunting, and strange things happen when they use English. By uttering "corn", Tony stopped a vicious argument between a military man and a hippie, made friendship blossom between a woman and a purse-snatcher, and caused a depressed cowboy to abort a suicide attempt. However, when he growls "potato" at a pro-corn rally, the [[HatePlague crowd erupts in rage]].

-->'''Poobah''':"Ah, love! The joining of hearts! The exchanging of gifts and fluids! It is not for our kind, brothers. Love is a temptress, a succubus intent on shopping for furniture. Deny love, my boys, or suffer the ultimate fate: Sunday with the in-laws!"
