Dr. Steve Brule shifts his focus from homes to animals in the latest episode of “Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule,” “Horse.” This episode is one that John C. Reilly is a particular fan of, as he says that it reminds him of classic comedy sketches.

“I’m pretty fond of ‘Horse,'” Reilly tells Zap2it. “I’ve shown the ‘Horse’ episode to kids, and to them it’s like the Three Stooges — pure comedy. You don’t have to have some kind of esoteric, eccentric taste to enjoy that episode. It’s just straight-up comedy, which makes me happy.”

The logline of “Horse” is simple: “Dr. Steve Brule learns what a Horse is.” Apparently part of that discovery involves eating some canned horse meat as well. De-licious!

“I’ve never had horse meat in a can myself, but Steve Brule, it’s a staple in his cabinet.
Just like a low cost meat,” Reilly shares. “It has a gamey taste; a gamey kind of earth taste, and slightly tangy, especially the creamed horse.”

“Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule” airs Thursdays at 12:30 a.m. ET/PT on Adult Swim.
