At first, Too Many Cooks seems like some forgotten laugh-track sitcom from the '70s or '80s. There's the cheesy theme song, the suburban house, the head shots of family members as they go about their day. But then something really weird happens. Or doesn't happen.

The credits never end. For 12 minutes, they go on, piling up characters, switching genres, looping, warping, rewinding, getting more and more bizarre and violent as they progress. According to The A.V. Club, Adult Swim has been airing the segment late at night recently, in a block of time labeled "Infomercials," so that viewers don't know it's coming.

Too Many Cooks is surely best appreciated when stumbled across in the bleary-eyed hours of the morning, but it makes for great YouTube viewing, too. I don't want to spoil the kicker, but you're encouraged to watch it to the end.
