Everyone has there shows that they call they sick fetish. It could be Soap Operas, Reality TV, Day Time Talk Shows or for me Drawn Together. I fell in love with this show when it first premiered back in 2004. Mainly because it took Link from Legend of Zelda and turned him into a sniviling, whiny gay poster child of humanity. It was this sense of humor that ran rampant through this show.
It never had a point and was wrong just because it could be wrong. Unlike South Park, Tripping the Rift or even Family Guy. This show just ripped up the censors notes and said "FUCK YOU!!" Which all of them have done but none so over the top as Drawn Together. Which was also part of the problem is that once you did everything you could in the show. There was nothing left and it was part of the reason it was canceled as it became a running recycled gag.
As sad as it was seeing this how fall from grace. I still loved it and when I found out about this movie. I had to watch it.In hopes of rekindling my love for a long lost friend and this movie does not disappoint. If you are a fan of Drawn Together not only will you love this movie. You will wish for more of the TV show that will never be. As the cast tries to get a point for their show to get back on the air.
Only to come to the point that they do not like making points. All the while they are running from a robot who is out to kill them and a crazed man who want's them dead. It simply is just Drawn Together on a grand scale and it is so over the top that it had me in tears more than once. Unfortunately though this movie is also the end of these characters or so we are lead to believe. As they are erased/killed at the end of the movie.
Which in cartoons never ever happens and if the fans want more. They will come back and believe me I sure hope they do. I can not live a life of never seeing Princess Clara, Spanky Ham, Captain Hero, Ling-Ling, Xandir P. Whifflebottom, Foxy Love, Toot Braunstein and Wooldoor Sockbat. These characters are in bedded in me and so many others around the world.
That we can never forget or let go of them. Because they are just so memorable and loved. So do yourself a favor if you loved your Drawn Together time on Comedy Central. Then you will love this movie as it closes a chapter in a wonderful show in an amazing fashion. It is also a great way just relive those moments of What the Fuck! Now I bid adieu and a heartfelt good bye to my friends from Drawn Together. You will be missed but never forgotten.
