Season two of Home Movies abandons the "Squigglevision" process which provided the animated show with most of its movement (such as it was) during its first season. Producer Tom Snyder had forsaken Squigglevision in favor of a new, streamlined computer flash process, which to many viewers proved more attractive and accessible. However, Snyder did not forsake his habit of having the voice actors improvise most of their dialogue, in happy disregard for precise mouth-movement synchronization. The season opener, "Politics" finds 8-year-old aspiring filmmaker Brendon Small (voiced by grown-up producer Brendon Small) again facing persecution by school bully Shannon (voiced by comedian Emo Phillips). Subsequent episodes of note include "Hiatus," a not-so-veiled comment on the two-year gap between Home Movies' cancellation by UPN and renewal by the Cartoon Network; "Space Boy," featuring a faux theme song performed by The Scabs which spoofs a popular David Bowie composition; "Dad," in which Brendon meets his biological father, who lives down to his reputation; and the season finale "The Wedding," in which Coach McGuirk once more proves to be "Mr. Wrong" for Brendon's neurotic mother, Paula.
