Flashback Friday-Drawn Together (2004-2007)

Parody, when done well, can illuminate the reality of a world that is almost too perfect.

Drawn Together aired on Comedy Central from 2004-2007. A sort of animated The Real World, the characters come from different cartoon genres. There is the super hero, the Disney-esque Princess, the chiseled hero from an action cartoon, etc. But, the different between these characters and their stock character predecessors that audiences have gotten used to watching.

Though it only lasted three seasons, Drawn Together was perfection while it was on the air. It took the the cartoon characters that we know and love and turned them on the head. It was funny, slightly sarcastic and perfectly mocked the genre in which it is based on.

I recommend it.
