Sam and Max are a dog and a rabbity thing. They are freelance police. And they are completely insane. The award-winning comic strip by Steve Purcell became a series of hit video games from LucasArts and Telltale Games and, from 1997 to 1998, an animated Saturday morning cartoon series that ripped rationality a new one and riddled kids full of wildly inappropriate humor. It was SAM AND MAX: FREELANCE POLICE!!!, and it didn't last.
But was SAM AND MAX: FREELANCE POLICE!!!... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they take a look back at the cult favorite cartoon series, and hold court over whether SAM AND MAX was ahead of its time or too maddening for its own good. The answers aren't going to come easily, folks. (And then there was the time Witney swallowed a wallet!)
