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.

Fun & Educational

This has to be one of the best series on Newgrounds! It's educational and entertaining for the viewer. I enjoyed every minute of it and wouldn't mind trying out this recipe for myself. You give us everything we need and the interactive menus makes this so much fun for the novice chef. Your artwork was great and your animation was superb. The sound was also superb and very well done. The voice acting is also superb, but a little bit more emotion would've been nice, still awesome though. Overall it's a wonderful flash and I enjoyed every bit of it!

This was too cool the way different messages and buttons came up throughout the flash which by the way was entertaining in itself i also loved the voice acting and the animation was great as well,just so much interactivity and the knowledge the messages give makes this flash one of the best in it's own little way.

This is the very first Newgrounds series that had the potential to actually be on TV. It had the perfect combination of the two parts that I'm looking for in a great cooking show: it's entertaining and very informative. It's kinda like Good Eats, but animated and the host has more legs. I was disappointed when new episodes weren't being made anymore, but at least I can go back and watch these old ones for a great time. And honestly man, if I were openly comparing these flash animations that are free online to other informing shows on food network, this would be no.2 right under Good Eats (not including the only-entertainment shows like Iron Chef). Yeah, I'd actually watch this over Emeril or that harpy Rachael Ray.
