For fans of Cartoon Network's award winning Regular Show, it's all about to get really surreal. The gang at the park hits your home video collection this week. And you know it will be anything but "regular".
Seasons 1&2 are available July 16 as a multi-disc package available on Blu Ray and DVD. This collection is loaded with 40 minutes of extras and commentary from creators, voice talent and animators. Trust me, it's worth it. Fans of all ages will love this release.
For the uninitiated, Regular Show follows the hijinks of a blue jay named Mordecai and his raccoon buddy, Rigby. They go to great lengths to slack off and avoid doing their jobs as workers at a city park. Their boss, Benson, is an angry and overbearing gumball machine. Their coworkers include an immortal Yeti named Skips (voiced by Mark Hamill -- yes, Luke Skywalker), an old fashioned lollipop chap named Pops, a muscle bound prankster named --appropriately -- Muscle Man and a ghost with a hand on top of his head named High Five Ghost. All that said, it sounds pretty ridiculous, right? It gets better. Every episode involves the mundane job problems the average Joe faces on a daily basis. Mordecai and Rigby always somehow manage to screw things up, however, to a point where things get supernaturally out of hand. The magic of this animated series is in how they manage to fix every outrageous situation. Loaded with pop culture references and silly humor, every 11 minute episode of Regular Show has broad appeal to kids and adults alike.
Probably the most impressive DVD extra is watching creator JG Quintel talk through the storyboard pitching the entire pilot episode (comprised of about 100+ sticky notes). It's a perfect glimpse of the minds behind the show. The episode commentary is excellent and made even better by the fact that Quintel's actual voice IS the voice of Mordecai. So fans can enjoy hearing Mordecai narrate episodes. It's a real hoot.
Don't be a slacker. Go get yours today, dude. Hm. Hm. Hm.
