The world can never get enough Sam and Max. Despite existing in fits and starts—an indie comic here, an adventure game there—Steve Purcell's dog and rabbit duo have never truly left us over the past 35 years. Heck, they just starred in a 2021 adventure game! But the characters' biggest brush with fame came in the form of a one-season Fox Kids' cartoon that, despite its budget and intended audience, nailed the iconic and verbose patter and antics of these beloved dirty (freelance) cops. So of course it wasn't long for this world.
This month on What A Cartoon, join us as we examine two Purcell-penned episodes of Sam and Max's short-lived existence on TV. Slap on your penny-conscious moon gear and get ready to laugh until you run out of precious oxygen!
