Some time ago, I started making my way through shows I recall from my childhood as background noise while busy with other tasks. One of these shows is one which I had never properly formulated an opinion of due to how little I'd seen it in its heyday- Home Movies.

For those not in the know, Home Movies was one of the first great flagships to ever air on Adult Swim- the other being Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. Having originally aired on the much-maligned channel UPN, it would be picked up by Adult Swim and given new life in the form of a formal 4-season run, beginning in 1999 and ending in 2003. What amazes me about it- however- is how it has seemingly slipped through the cracks of television memory. While it's role in making Adult Swim what it is today is no doubt important, it would be overshadowed by later entries in the block- like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sealab 2021, Morel Orel, Metlocalypse, and Robot Chicken.

I would say that the most apt comparison would be 'Home Movies is to Robot Chicken as Rugrats is to Spongebob.'

For those who haven't seen it, I recommend giving it a try. Season 1 is the infamous "Squigglevision" season, and the show becomes more mature/engaging as it goes on. I'll admit that it's not as funny as shows like Xavier: Renegade Angel, Tigtone, or Superjail, but it has its moments and has its own unique energy. My only complaint about the show is its "music."
