The Angry Nasty People show[]

At the TV screen

Angry Nasty People is a reality television program created by film director Benton Tarantella. It stars Mr. Nasty, and features Eustace Bagge, Muriel Bagge, and their dog, Courage.

The show revolves around the Bagge family, and their daily household of mean and rotten interactions with each other. Primarily, these are carried out by leading role Mr. Nasty, or the farmer. Tarantella was inspired to make the program when he observed Eustace's behavior outside a local movie theater, and decided it would sell well. The franchise is greatly popular, and action figures of the characters have been sold. The show concluded when the producer was drowned in a pit of quicksand by Courage.


  • The Angry Nasty People show uses a laugh track.
  • The movie theater the Bagges are seen exiting lists the current movie playing as "1001 Dilmations", a reference to the real-life novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians and the classic Disney movie, 101 Dalmatians as well as its 1996 live-action remake of the same name, with the "Dil" part being a reference to the series' creator, John R. Dilworth.
  • This episode shares its music with "Everyone Wants to Direct", "Mondo Magic", and "Bride of Swamp Monster".
  • Whilst Benton is on the phone, he mentions his partner/bosses name "Lazzo". This is probably a reference to Mike Lazzo, who is the president of Adult Swim.
