YMMV / The Brak Show

  • Acceptable Targets: Brak's dad is a Cuban midget.
  • Awesome Moments: This bit from "Braklet":
    Brak: Well, I'm not supposed to kill you, but I might. How do you know I haven't already killed you? Are you even allowed to hear this, because here's a question: I'm gonna kill you!
    Clarence: Ah! Ah! Did the- Ah! Did the park ranger put you up to this?
    Brak: Maybe he did, or maybe I'm just CRAZY! AHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHH! Come forth, my precious! (voice suddenly goes deep) TIME TO DIE!
    Clarence: (runs away screaming)
    • Zorak fails to get his booth back from Butchy, resulting in two Curb Stomp Battles, and takes up forceful residence in Brak's room. Fed up with Zorak's refusal to leave, Mom goes out to set Butchy straight. And, boy, does she whoop Butchy's ass. (Although due to the limited animation, the actual fight is obscured, technically making this an Offscreen Moment of Awesome.)
    • During the rap contest of "Brak Street", Brak manages to please the crowd, but it seems like he's on the verge of losing to Prime Cut. Cue Dad coming in and breaking it all down.
    • Seeing Thundercleese return to full power to destroy the meteor threatening the planet is pretty awesome in itself. Even better, he ensures his abilities are back by blasting Zorak to smithereens, after spending the episode dealing with Zorak taking advantage of his deactivation to wreck his stuff.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: A common occurrence in the show, due to the style of random humor employed in the series. Such moments include a tiny robot appearing out of nowhere to mimic Brak, the underground chamber containing Roblox-esque automatons of the family, and a small alien popping out of thin air to kick Thundercleese's head before running away.
  • Ear Worm: Some of Brak's impromptu songs can be quite catchy.
    • Zorak's songs from "War Next Door" and "Psychoklahoma"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Dad. There are entire websites dedicated to his quotes.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Despite Zorak being well, Zorak; Brak and his parents clearly care about him and see him as another member of the family. Brak's mom even calls him "dear." This gives Zorak people who care for him deeply despite being who is, something he can't get anywhere else.
  • Periphery Demographic: The show might have aired on [adult swim], but Brak seems to be popular with younger audiences. It helps that he also appeared on the kid-oriented Cartoon Planet, and that The Brak Show itself is one of [adult swim]'s less raunchy programs.
  • Retroactive Recognition: A pre-superstar Cee Lo Green voices Prime Cut Miggity-Mo' Macdaddy Gizzabang Doggy Dog Dog in "Brakstreet".
  • The Scrappy: Clarence. He was a replacement for Sisto in Season 2, and spent most of his time being annoying and taking up large chunks of the plot doing nothing. However, he did get better in the Grand Finale.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Season two compared to season one.
