Despite these problems, the series acquired a significant cult following, and was eventually released on DVD in 2004.In August 2005, Greg the Bunny returned to the IFC, in a series of short segments, spoofing both old and new movies such as Annie Hall, Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, Fargo, Blue Velvet, Easy Rider and Pulp Fiction.The cast for these segments primarily features puppets Greg and Warren Demontague with appearances from Count Blah, new character Pal Friendlies, and returning character The Wumpus.
It starred Seth Green and a hand puppet named Greg the Bunny, originally invented by the team of Sean S. Milano and Chinoy wrote and co-produced the Fox show.
The show was spun off from The Greg the Bunny Show, a series of short segments that aired on the Independent Film Channel, which were based on the Public-access television cable TV show Junktape.
A show spin-off, called Warren the Ape, premiered on June 14, 2010 on MTV.
Its failure was largely ascribed to the show runner and networks' seeming cluelessness as to the direction they wanted the show to take.
The network promoted Greg the Bunny as a puppet show for adults, but within the show itself, they insisted on toning down its edgier aspects.
The creators felt these changes caused the show to lose something, and gave it much more of a traditional sitcom feel.
The show runner and network also wanted to focus the show more on the human cast, while the creators maintained that the puppets were the heart of the show.
Junktape was a half-hour, bi-weekly Public-access television show created by Sean S. The show aired on New York City's Manhattan Neighborhood Network, Monday nights at pm.
Eventually, the show got the attention of the Independent Film Channel and given its own series of regular segments starring one of the main characters from Junktape, Greg the Bunny.
