This Memorial Day, Shout! Factory TV is celebrating the 10th anniversary of The Goode Family with a marathon of the complete series.
All day long on Monday, May 27th, Shout! Factory TV will livestream every episode of the seminal animated comedy alongside bonus features including deleted scenes, episodes with audio commentary from executive producers John Atshuler and Dave Krinsky, and the special “Meet the Goode Family” on the Shout! Factory TV live streaming channel available on Twitch, Samsung TV Plus, Xumo, and Stirr.
From creator Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill, Silicon Valley), The Goode Family follows the life of an environmentally responsible but obsessive family. While the series took a comic look at contemporary society, many of those themes are more relevant today than ever.
A hilarious skewering of our better natures, The Goode Family stars Mike Judge, Nancy Carell (The Office), Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) and Brian Doyle-Murray (Get A Life) with special guest stars Kevin Nealon, Bob Odenkirk, Andy Richter, Johnny Knoxville, Laraine Newman, Julia Sweeney, Elvis Costello, Alyson Hannigan, Dax Shepard and more!
Meet Gerald and Helen Goode, a couple who live by the motto WWAGD (“What Would Al Gore Do?”). Gerald, a college administrator, and Helen, a community activist, are determined to obliterate their carbon footprint on the planet: They’re zealous vegans, they drive a hybrid, and they recycle everything possible. Even the family dog, Che, is vegan. In the words of Helen, all the Goodes want to do is buy organic apples and call minorities by their politically correct names. But despite their best efforts, something always goes haywire with their plans. With standards always changing, no matter how hard you try to be good, it’s virtually impossible these days . . . especially for the Goode family.
Throughout the 13 episodes, the family adopts a bizarre animal named Gutterball, tags a clean park to experience the joy of cleaning up graffiti, take embarrassing pictures of at-risk kids that get them beat up by their gang-banger friends, get in a turf war with an Aryan prison work-gang while doing a highway cleanup, and much, much more.
