YouTube’s weirdest show, Lasagna Cat, returns after nine years with 13 new episodes

New, 8 comments

Including a five-hour episode based on their telephone sex survey

After confirming it had begun production on new Lasagna Cat episodes two weeks ago, Fatal Farm, the team behind the series, has posted 13 new episodes. It marks the first time Lasagna Cat has had new episodes in nearly a decade.

On Feb. 9, the team promised that if fans responded to a telephone sex survey, they would publish videos from its newest season. Yesterday, Fatal Farm delivered, uploading 13 new Lasagna Cat videos to its page, including a nearly five-hour animated episode containing the responses to the sex survey.

Each of the episodes stays true to the original Lasagna Cat formula: the reenactment of a Garfield comic strip and a bizarre music video, which is used as a tribute to Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield. In the new videos, the tributes contain music from artists like Prince, 50 Cent, Kenny G and, naturally, the entire Kundun soundtrack.

It’s unclear how often Fatal Farm will upload new Lasagna Cat videos, but the show seems to be following in the footsteps of its previous season. In November 2007, Fatal Farm posted a teaser trailer for the series on YouTube. Just a few months later, on Jan. 14, 2008, all 27 Lasagna Cat videos were published at once. The show became a cult sensation for the YouTube audience and it’s clear within watching one or two of the new episodes that the obscure and strange humor is back in full form. The first episode Fatal Farm ever posted went on to garner more than a million views.

Lasagna Cat’s return, which is receiving attention because of the large gap of time between when the videos first started and now, also marks the perfect starting point for those who have never heard of the series to jump in. This may be the last time Fatal Farm posts videos, but they’ve already begun to rack up views on YouTube. “Sex Survey Results,” for example, has close to 100,000 views.

All 13 of the new episodes are available to watch on the Lasagna Cat YouTube page, but it’s highly recommended you don’t watch them all in one sitting. Or, at the very least, make sure to block off some time to watch the answers to the telephone sex survey by itself. It is a uniquely bizarre piece that also requires a bit of attention.

The rest of Lasagna Cat’s episodes leading up to Fatal Farm’s disappearance in January 2008 are available to watch through the channel as well.
