bro'Town - Honky the Wonder Horse

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2005

PG
Parental Guidance

Hit animated comedy series bro'Town was born from the poly-saturated comedy of theatre group The Naked Samoans. This episode from the second series sees the boys taking on a cast-off racehorse called Honky, and with help (and hindrance) from Vale and Valea's gambling-addicted father, training him to race in the Morningside Cup. Valea faces up to his horse phobia to ride Honky on the big day. Meanwhile special subtitles help explain what this horse is really thinking.

It’s every alcoholic gamblers dream to win that race. Don't toy with my emotions boys!
– Pepelo (David Fane), on the Morningside Cup
