In this spoof of reality TV shows such as The Real World and Big Brother, eight distinct (and dysfunctional) cartoon archetypes (who also spoof the archetypes you might see on a more normal reality series) are flung together and forced to put up with each other. Through various misadventures ranging from scintillating to shocking to downright strange, these eight roomies probe each others' personalities and push each others' buttons.
14. Ghostesses in the Slot Machine
First aired: 11/30/2005
When the housemates start to notice strange "Poltergeist-esque" occurrences, Foxxy discovers that the house is haunted by the souls of 1,000 dead Indians. The gang decides to give a piece of their property to the Indians as a gesture of peace, and the Indians build a big Vegas-style casino.
The story of the Drawn Together house being built over an Indian burial ground whose tombstones were moved but not the bodies is almost word for word with the story behind the movie Poltergeist.
