HarperCollins published Kupperman's book, Snake 'n' Bacon's Cartoon Cabaret, in 2000. Parts of his work were animated later that year for the Comedy Central show TV Funhouse, produced by Robert Smigel and Dino Stamatopoulos. In 2005, he started a comic book series called Tales Designed To Thrizzle, published by Fantagraphics. As of 2009, Kupperman is writing sketches for a new comedy series starring Peter Serafinowicz, and he created a one-off pilot called Snake 'N' Bacon for the Adult Swim network.
