The Business of Being Bluth
The major Bluth Cos. ventures are the Hussein homes, the series of “Boyfights” videos (with wacky side character Buster and his “Too Old to Breastfeed” and “I Don’t Want to Be on This Video” subplots), and the terrifying and dangerous Cornballer. George’s most successful side business, the Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana Stand, was stolen from Korean immigrants. It’s amazing that the Bluths compiled a fortune at all. Losing it is inevitable. Isn’t that the way it always goes? George stood in for the whole scam, and the rest of the clowns lined up behind him.
At Businessweek, Will Leitch examines the Bluth family business and gets us excited about seeing what kind of scheming the Bluths will be up to when Arrested Development returns on Netflix later this month.
