Watch Adam Carolla's Failed Animated Pilot


The above was Adam Carolla's pilot for Birchum, his failed Fox series based on a Crank Yankers character. It's amazing this show didn't get picked up, doesn't everyone love watching a grumping old guy complain about kids these days with their peanut allergies and gift bags and not getting hit by strangers. It ends with Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" playing. Get it? The last lyrics you hear is "I can't change." Get it? Kids these days don't appreciate heavy-handed metaphors anymore. [Via]

    Birchum originated on the LA radio station that he worked at with Kimmel, if I'm not mistaken.

    That was pretty laff-free. Must have been written by women or something.

      What are you talking about I laughed the whole ten minutes this should be picked up

    Man that was funny and you can tell it would be a great series much funnier than "king.of the hill" somebody at fox really messed up. Last year I could tell the new series they picked up would suck without even watching an episode. This one would be great it would do well with teen boys and men wich are the people who watch fox cartoons and women would love to be offended

    Honestly, I got to say it has a ton of potential. It was pretty good, and I think we should find a way to get them to re-consider picking it up. Do I smell a petition anyone?
