Gowns by "Pepi" - 5 stars
And top billing, no less.
"Irascible cockswain" is the best phrase humanly possible.

Some day, we will all be Grunkle Stan.
Some of us already are.

"Saunterblugget Hampterfuppinshire" That right there is why I love this show.

I no longer think of this as a kids' show.
Alex Hirsch is writing a show for grownups that kids can watch, too.
Kids are getting more sophisticated in their humor as adults get less so. Cartoons meet them both in the middle, one side on their way up, the other side, well, the kids look away and pass quickly...
Yes, person who argues for kid shows as adult humor, comedy IS less sophisticated now.
POPULAR COMEDY THEN:
Here comes Ping Pong, the clumsy Chinaman! From the people who brought you Shoe Polish, the Dishonest Negro!
POPULAR COMEDY NOW:
This thing. Also, we've got Louie and The Daily Show.
Yeah, I'd say we're doing better.
As far as being out-of-touch goes, whining about adults watching cartoons these days is about on par with whining about them playing video games...
... These days.
Heehee, video games are pretty damned childish too.
The evidence keeps adding up.
adults are only allowed to work and drink heavly, everything else is childish.

My girlfriend has an irrational hatred of cartoons. Anything animated, I guess. I don't know why -- she's weird. But she loved the pilot.

That was spectacular.

This show is literally the funniest and most daring animated thing Disney has done in over a decade.
