Bojack Horseman coming to Blu-ray
Siren Visual will release the popular adult animated comedy Bojack Horseman on April 19. Season 1 will receive a dual format release on Blu-ray and DVD.
A washed up former celebrity sitcom horse and star of the TV show “Horsin' Around” is a forgotten Hollywood resident and curmudgeon with a fondness for wearing bright sweaters. His plan to regain some notoriety and thus media relevance is to release a tell-all autobiography, ghost-written by his most recent love interest, human Diane Nguyen.
Bojack dictates highlights from his troubled past expecting Diane will make him look good. Throw into the mix his agent and on-again-off-again girlfriend Princess Carolyn and his freeloading roommate Todd Chavez in addition to his annoying arch rival Mr. Peanutbutter, who featured prominently in a competing '90s TV show with a suspiciously similar storyline and is now dating Diane.
Willa Paskin at Slate magazine writes “it is often very clever, and, moreover, well-tuned to the ludicrousness of the sort of low-level fame that surrounds Bojack” and goes onto compare it to 30 Rock.
Variety calls it “brilliant, genre defying animated comedy.”
Created by Raphael Bob-Waksburg, Bojack Horseman features the voices of Will Arnett as the title character, Paul F. Tompkins (Aqua Teen Hunger Force), Amy Sedaris (School of Rock) Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Alison Brie (The Lego Movie).
