The big North reminds me of the sound of wood crackling in the fireplace, the feel of a crisp, cool breeze on my cheek, a glass of fine merlot swirling in my hand, and of course, belly laughs watching the hilarious animated comedy that I’m almost looking forward to Sunday night. So, once again just in time to get us into the weekend vibes, our friends over at Fox have shared an exclusive clip: This week it’s “Beef is hypnotized and agrees to attend a meeting of poetry” of this Sunday’s brand new episode, “Poetry of The Penal Adventure.
In the episode, Wolf accompanies Ham and Judy on a school trip to the abandoned Death Cliff prison. Meanwhile, Beef accidentally agrees to compose a poem. Check it out Sunday, May 1 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Hosted by Bento Box Entertainment and produced by 20th Television, the adult 2D animated comedy series is from Loren Bouchard, Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, the genius minds behind Bob’s Burgers.
The big North follows the adventures in Alaska of the Tobin family. As a single father, Beef (Nick Offerman, Parks and recreation, Do it), does his best to keep his group of children close to him, especially his only daughter, Judy (Jenny Slate, Bob’s Burgers), whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall. Rounding out the family, Judy’s older brother, Wolf (Will Forte, The last man on earth); his fiancée, Honeybee (Dulcé Sloan, The daily show); Judy’s second brother, Ham (Paul Rust, Love); and his little brother Moon (Aparna Nancherla, A simple favor). Although the children’s mother is not pictured, Judy seeks advice from her new boss, Alyson (Megan Mullally, will and grace), and her imaginary friend, Alanis Morissette (guest voice as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.
