Overview

Home Movies is an American animated television sitcom that was originally broadcast from April 26, 1999 to April 4, 2004. Brendon Small is the creator, head writer and lead musician of Home Movies. Jon Benjamin, Melissa Bardin Galsky and Janine Ditullio also lent their voices to the show. The plot surrounds eight-year-old Brendon, who makes films with his friends Melissa Robbins and Jason Penopolis in his spare time. He lives with his divorced mother, Paula, and his baby sister, Josie. He is also friends with his alcoholic, short-tempered soccer coach, John McGuirk. Home Movies developed a cult following during its run, and is still considered a cult show to this day.

Home Movies was produced by Soup2Nuts, and originally aired on UPN, but the network cancelled the series after 5 episodes. Cartoon Network, seeing potential for the series, purchased the rights to it, and aired it as the first program on their nighttime adult-oriented Adult Swim block on the day of the block's launch on September 2, 2001. As part of Adult Swim, it finished the first season of 13 episodes and was picked up for three additional 13 episode seasons.

Creator Small would later go on to create the Adult Swim animated series Metalocalypse and co-creator Bouchard would go on to create the animated Bob's Burgers for the Fox network.
