Napoleon Dynamite: The Animated Series.... Bueno or No Bueno?

Jeff sent me this link via The Daily What and sparked a great email debate about whether or not this is such a good idea. First, here is the trailer:

Now, the debate. I think this is a great idea. Here is why. I really enjoyed the movie. I thought it was hysterical, and I thought the cast was great. Now lets be honest, if you didn't like the original movie then OF COURSE this will seem like a bad idea. But if you did like the original, how can this be bad? They got the full cast back, the animated characters look just like their real life counterparts, and its better then getting a forced  live action sequel, no?

I can't see why any fan of Napoleon Dynamite wouldn't want this show, but that's why I have you guys. Tell me what you think about this show. Are you interested... annoyed.... think this is a sign that the apocalypse is upon us? Let us know in the comment section below. Uncle Rico FTW!!!!! 


  1. I agree...better than an unwanted sequel or reboot for sure!

    My only disconcertedness stems from the fact that the trailer for the show doesn't seem too FUNNY.

    I'll give it a shot....but. I hope the writing and nuances are the similar to the film. Love me some 'Napoleon Dynamite' stop....'Nacho Libre' animated series?

  2. Oh yes! The only thing I want to know is why it has taken so long?
