Butcher & Son is the original four-minute demo for Sons of Butcher. It had been animated by Jay Ziebarth.
Originally, Sol was to be Ricky's father at their butcher shop. They were first approached by MTV US about their idea, and told them that there were too many comedies out there that were about fathers and sons, and wanted Ricky and Sol to be brothers instead. They ended up making the change, but in the end MTV never picked it up.
