Dr. Katz show

Have you ever seen Dr. Katz, the genius animated show about a therapist and his grown son? He'll give sessions to his patients, but each patient's voice is actually a famous comedian (Conan O'Brien, Ray Romano, David Cross). One summer, my brother and I got totally obsessed with it and watched it everyday in Michigan. Well, this morning, I came across this clip and couldn't stop laughing.

(Now I'm tempted to buy the dvds and watch the full season:)

ha! I loved this show when I was younger. Hilarious! Probably worth buying on dvd.

Michele said...

Have never seen this! You had me at Ray Romano and Conan. Ugh - reminded now of those "noises" at night, so true. And that is so awesome that you and your brother share such great taste! My brother and I used to watch old Pink Panther (Peter Sellers) movies together. Great memories!

I used to LOVE watching this show! My other favorite animated show is Home Movies, have you ever seen it? It's hysterical.

Anna said...

Ha! It's so true, the way he describes that little noise picking up steam.

Sunshine said...

I have never seen this show. I might have to check this out too!

Designs Good said...

Joanna Goddard said...

Jessica N said...

I'm de-lurking to say that a) I love your blog and b) the DVDs are worth it! I had never seen the show before my boyfriend received the box-set for his birthday and it's so great. There are a few great commentaries and bonus features, too.

I don't know how I've never seen this before. Hilarious! Being the psych major I was, I'll definitely be looking into watching more of these.

Thanks Joanna!

jessie said...

Ahhh, I LOVED Dr. Katz! I too got obsessed with it one summer, to the point that my friends made fun of my for talking about Ben and Laura too much, as though they were actual people with whom I'd been interacting.

Stephanie said...

you can always netflix it! =)

this clip is HILARIOUS. every parent knows that feeling. "at first youre in denial." so know that! thanks for the morning laugh.

Shia said...

Joanna Goddard said...

omg, i hope they make an arrested development movie, that would be amazing!!

I think I've seen a clip of this show, but I haven't ever really watched it. I love a good animated show. Have you ever seen the show "Archer" that airs on FX? It is totally inappropriate and hilarious. You have to check it out. It's a great show that men and women can enjoy (as long as they're not easily offended), which makes it perfect for couples. =)

Used to watch back in college- great show.

Eva B. said...

OMG, I LOVED This show! I am from Michigan too, (which has nothing to do with this show, but maybe our sense of humor?) My favorite was the one about the guy who had a fear of mayonnaise, and how his mom was always warning him about salmonella. I am laughing just typing this. Hilarious.

Gayatri Kumar said...

Lol!! Hilarious! Never watched the show before - but I think i'm gonna have to change that. I'm not sure where I can source this in India though - any ideas?

Judy said...

Wow, this is awesome. I've never seen it before. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm going to watch more right this second. =D

Megan said...

YES! Watched it ALL the time growing up (in Iowa). Still find it hilarious.

Sasha said...

I love this show. I really miss it. Have you seen the Bully episode where Dr. Katz tries to throw away his son's doll? One of my favorites.

Joanna Goddard said...

eva, haha, that one was hilarious! i LOVED ben, too. he was so awesome and happy w/being the biggest nerd.

Joanna Goddard said...

sasha, YES! omg, so funny, they're all coming back to me!

wendiw80 said...

I used to watch that but forgot about it. Was it on comedy central??

Yazmak iyidir... said...

Oh i used to love this show but noone seemed to watch it except me, im glad to remember it, i might watch sometonight.
By the way Joanna, after your Project Runway post for the 9th season, I've watched the whole 7th and 8th seasons and ripped my eyes off and became a complete fan of Mondo Guerra. Even though Gretchen Jones' style was more appealing to me, she unfortunately didnt seem a nice person on the tv. I even ordered a Mondo tshirt from his shop, I think its hilarious because I live faar from the states (istanbul it is) and it will probably take a year to get it from the mail!!!

Melissa said...

I LOVED Dr. Katz when I was in high school! I had completely forgotten about it. Now I want the DVDs, too!

etoilee8 said...

I used to watch this all the time with my older sister (who's about to be a new Mum . . . I think I'll send this to her).

Adj said...

As someone who owns the dvd, let me tell you: it's TOTALLY worth buying!

Sarah Smith said...

I had forgotten all about this show!! I used to watch it on occasion when I was younger. That's a great price for the full series, I say get it!

Catherine Masi said...

Oh man, that is some funny stuff.

jeanine @ i heart interiors said...

The DVD are totally worth it, I have one for when I need some cheering up. I used to watch Dr Katz at 2 am when I was working on school projects and talking about it usually results in blank looks, so I really thought no one else had heard of it.

I love Laura & Ben and some of the comedians are spot on.

Jill said...

Hilarious and SO TRUE! Can't wait to share with my husband.

Paige Broadbent said...

I am seriously going to be you-tubing more of this. So very funny.

Anonymous said...

Hilarious and true description of the dread of hearing your baby deciding it is time to get up!

Georgia said...

If you loved Dr. Katz (so did I!), you gotta watch Home Movies. It's just as lovely and amazing.

skim said...

I loved this show! Always good for a laugh.

Crystal said...

I love this show too! I used to watch this and The Critic with Jon Lovitz all the time :)

Katherine said...

Wow! When did they release the dvds? My husband LOVES this show but it was only ever on TV really late at night in Australia (most good shows like 30 Rock and Arrested Development always get really bad timeslots. I don't know why.) We bought 3 episodes on VHS years ago, but when we've looked in the past, there have been no legal releases of the show on DVD. Exciting news! Christmas present is looking sorted.

alex said...

I sooo need to watch this!

Oblio and Arrow said...
