It might have been nominally a show for kids, but Regular Show was, at its heart, basically stoner comedy. Running between 2010 and 2017, J.G. Quintel’s Cartoon Network series centred on a pair of slackers—a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—who put more effort into playing video games and eating munchies than into their park-maintenance jobs.
The real proof is in the roots. The characters of Mordecai and park manager Benson first appeared in Quintel’s student short “2 in the AM PM”, and… well, just watch:
Quintel’s new series, Close Enough, makes its debut on HBO Max next week. To mark the occasion, the network has teamed up with Sunderstorm’s Kanha Cannabis Infused Gummies and online cannabis marketplace Eaze to launch a collection of edibles inspired by the show’s characters.
So, no pretense about the intended audience in this case.
How can you get your hands on the goods? Well, unless you live in the Golden State (or know someone who does), that could be a challenge. The Close Enough gummies are available at licensed retailers in California. They will also be available for purchase and delivery via Eaze throughout the month of July while supplies last—but only in L.A., San Francisco, and San Diego.
Close Enough, which premiers on July 9, is an animated sitcom about a married couple with a five-year-old daughter. Josh and Emily live with their divorced best friends/roommates on the east side of Los Angeles, where, according to an HBO Max press release, they are “navigating that transitional time in your 30s when life is about growing up, but not growing old. It’s about juggling work, kids, and pursuing your dreams, while avoiding time-traveling snails, stripper clowns, and murderous mannequins. Their life may not be ideal but for now, it’s close enough.”
