Drawn Together

Billed as animation's answer to 'Big Brother', that's essentially what this show is, mixed together with an adult sitcom concept. The household members are all recognisable cartoon stereotypes of one sort or another. Captain Hero is as he sounds: a Superman clone. Foxxy Love is a 70's Blaxploitation chick. Toot is a Betty Boop lookalike who's jealous of all the better looking girls in the house, and who, in Comedy Central's words, is 'an outdated, fat dump'. Ling Ling is a psycopathic Pikachu clone. Spanky is a pig whose usual mode is crass, frat-boy toilet humour. Princess Clara looks, and to an extent behaves like Ariel from 'Little Mermaid'. Wooldoor Sockbat is a sort of generic post-Ren and Stimpy somethingorother.... or is he the Elf from the Roleplaying Game/anime hybrid? Anyway, think the format of Big Brother and you have the basic idea, but with lots of satire, adult humour and gags and references to various animation genres and eras.
