Author Comments

Welcome to the first animated cooking show hosted by an appetizer. Deep Fried, Live! with Tako the Octopus is an entertaining, enlightening, and often dangerous look at the mysteries and methodology of modern food preparation. It’s the ultimate culinary spectacle, offering secret ingredients (that refuse to be cooked), in depth cooking science, printable recipes, and direct links to the latest cookware and ingredients. It’s also a thorough exploration of how much damage one octopus can do with an unlimited supply of kitchen artillery.

I've made this dish about eight times already.

I love the series. I love the food. I love the animation. The links still work despite the age and HOLY CRAP. THIS WAS RELEASED IN 2001? This is a high caliber flash ahead of its time!

To the watcher, enjoy this series and give these recipes a try. I've always enjoyed them. In fact, beer can chicken was served at my house four days ago.

An Important part of my childhood on Newgrounds.

Oh man, I fucking used to love this series. I remember the good ol' days watching this. It's funny, original, family friendly ( sometimes that's what we need every now and then) and a delight to watch. Plus I learned a lot of things from this. It's a shame the creator disapeared from the series. *Sigh* If only I could see a new episode these days. COME BACK TAKO! NEWGROUNDS NEEDS YOUR COOKING SKILLS!
