History

On May 25, 2008, Adult Swim ran China, IL: The Funeral. The 11 minute special was made up of four acts, which were streamed on the now defunct Super Deluxe. The special married Brad Neely's Professor Brothers and Baby Cakes webseries, which were also streamed at Super Deluxe, and established a larger environment for the characters. The special, as well as Brad Neely's other videos, can be viewed at Neely's YouTube page.
