Adult Swim’s Too Many Cooks – Look Into the Face of Pure Madness!


Our brains have just melted watching “Too Many Cooks,” the latest short film (?) written and directed by Casper Kelly that aired during Adult Swim. This is insanity. Pure insanity.

How do we even set this up? It takes its inspiration from the terribly cheesy sitcom opening credits of the ’80s. And then it stays in that moment for 11 minutes, along the way becoming very meta, then a macabre, cannibalistic slasher film, then an ’80s cartoon, then something patrioticÂ… then something entirely else. It’s madness/genius and we’re trying to comprehend the creative logic that went into making this.
