That's My Bush! Coming to DVD!!!!!

That's My Bush - Sitcom From South Park Creators On-The-Way, With Extras!

Back in the time leading up to the U.S. presidential election of 2000, between George W. Bush and Al Gore, the creators of South Park (Trey Parker and Matt Stone, of course) conceived of an idea for a sitcom that would be based on whoever the winner of the election was, and their time in the White House. It would be called either Absolute Al or That's My Bush!, depending on who took the oath of office. The plan didn't make a difference in regard to poking fun at one politician vs. the other: one of the show's creators commented at the time to the effect of, "They're both boring, stupid people, and it's just not going to matter."

As we all know, after a bit of a debate over the Florida election results, the show was dubbed "That's My Bush!", and debuted on Comedy Central on April 4, 2001. Timothy Bottoms (The Paper Chase film, 1991's Land of the Lost) starred as George W. Bush, Carrie Quinn Dolin as wife Laura, Kurt Fuller (recently seen in both Boston Legal and Desperate Housewives) as Karl Rove, and Marcia Wallace (The Simpsons, The Bob Newhart Show) as Maggie Hawley. The show only lasted 8 episodes, though. The studio commented at the time of the cancellation that the cost of the show for each ratings point it was getting was just too expensive.

the heads-up that the folks at SouthParkStudios.com had posted this information yesterday:

"That's My Bush" Cast Reunites for DVD

Next week the cast of the show will be in-studio to record commentary for the upcoming DVD. Those of you who were fans of the short-lived show, "That's My Bush" will be excited to know that the TV show will be available on DVD this fall.

1. And up until now I just went to the "Adult" section of the video store!
:rofl:

That show wasn't much good. Well, Marcia Wallace was in it, but aside from that...

2. Oh, I don't know... Kristen Miller always got my 'attention'....
.. the again, I liked "She Spies", so what do I know :)

but Seriously, Timothy Bottoms NAILS Dubya (right down to he keeps wiping his nose like a coke head) and Kurt Fuller is so DELICIOUSLY evil as Rove (like the bit with the execution where he's sucking the breath out of the prisoner as he dies..).

8. I loved Kurt Fuller!
The part where Bush found the diagram of how many people would have to die before Rove could become president was also entertaining!

I have to say, though -- even the show's writers didn't imagine a scenario where Dick Cheney shot a guy in the face (though they did have him seizing power in the final episode ...)

4. Still, some of the bits in are now so 'true to life'...

.. like him bombing Austria.
.. the drunk frat boys invade the White House.
.. Karl Rove being a satanist.
.. him being a absolute dumb-ass.

"Please tell me you didn't vote for him".
