    Wow, I knew Greg the Bunny the series was made possible by the popularity of the shorts that once aired on IFC, but I didn't know it was coming back to IFC. Is this going to resemble the Fox series at all? I would have to think that securing Levy, Green, and Gunton would be unlikely, especially for a cable channel not known for its original series.

    According to the IFC Website, Seth Green, Dan Milano, Spencer Chinoy and Sean Baker are all back! They are listed under Cast and Crew.

    WOW Greg the bunny is back! HORRAY! I heard that it might come back when the dvd came out. It just stinks that I don't have the IFC network.[​IMG] [​IMG] I hope they come out with these new episodes on dvd or I'll never see them.


    I guess the dvd set that is out really isn't the complete series is it?[​IMG]

    I'm glad Greg the Bunny is back on with new epsiodes but it looks so different than when it was on FOX but it's all cool. I just glad that it just back on and on a different network besides FOX...

    Nope. As a big fan of the Fox show, I was disappointed by the Greg the Bunny new "special" episode run on IFC recently ("Hittin' the Asphalt") that took Greg and Warren to Vegas. Sounds good on paper, but it wasn't my cup of tea.

    Didn't find it very funny at all. You will also have to be prepared for the fact that it's far more racy than the Fox version. In fact, it's pretty vulgar (unnecessarily so, IMO).

    Also, they don't use any of the new, better-looking Fox puppets (perhaps Fox has copyright on them?), so you've got the "old" Greg (not necessarily a bad thing) and the ultra-crappy looking Count Blah.

    I anxiously awaited this thing the whole summer. After watching it once, I could care less about a new series. Much preferred the Fox sitcom format, but that's just me.

    Oh, and Drew Massey is no longer doing Blah's voice (same guy who did it originally, either Dan or Spencer, is).

    And, of course, there's no Tardy Turtle!

    Well according to the dvd. Tardy Turtle and Susan were both stolen when they got canceled.[​IMG]

    Received the DVD in the mail today. It came in a clamshell with a promo ad for the shows.

    I'm glad you posted because I had completely forgotten I'd signed up for the dvd. I guess mine should arrive sometime this week.
