A trailer was released recently for the debut season of Misfits & Monsters, a new horror-comedy anthology series coming to truTV.
The show comes from Bobcat Goldthwait, who’s best known as the stand-up comedian and actor who appeared in the Police Academy movies, Scrooged, and Shakes the Clown, and more recently as the filmmaker behind World’s Greatest Dad, God Bless America, and Willow Creek.
The trailer is kind of a trailer/featurette hybrid, with peeks at the show paired with Goldthwait talking about it. You can read more about Misfits & Monsters and check out the trailer along with some bonus videos below.
As a child of the ’90s, I fondly remember watching Disney cartoons from Tale Spin and Rescue Rangers to Darkwing Duck. But I imagine there isn’t as big a classic as DuckTales. The series has now been rebooted, since that is the norm nowadays, and it has managed to assemble quite a cast of comedians. From Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan, who will voice Huey, Dewey, and Louie respectively, to David Tennant who will voice Scrooge McDuck. Other talents include Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, and Kate Micucci as Webby.
We previously saw the cast sing the classic theme song, but there wasn’t much else. Now a new trailer has popped up online giving us our first look at the upcoming revival. Check it out below.
Recently we saw a teaser for the new DuckTales coming to Disney XD in 2017, but it didn’t show much.
While we await a full trailer, eager fans will be excited to watch a recently released video. The video features the cast of the new DuckTales, including the new voice of Scrooge McDuck David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones), singing the classic theme song. Tennant is joined by Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live, Inside Out), who voices Louie; Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, House of Lies), who plays Dewey; Danny Pudi (Community, Knights of Badassdom), who will be Huey; Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates, Raising Hope), set to voice Webby Vanderquack; Toks Olagundoye (Castle, The Neighbors), who voices Mrs. Beakley; and Beck Bennett (SNL, Sing), as the new Launchpad McQuack.
You can watch the cast sing the classic theme song below.
Fans of the hit sitcom Community were pretty bummed out when the show was canceled recently after five seasons, significantly damaging hope for “six seasons and a movie.”
But these days being canceled isn’t necessarily a death sentence. With the rise of streaming media, other options exist. The hope that a company like Netflix or Hulu or Amazon will resurrect a dead series for their streaming service means faithful fans always have a little spark of hope.
For Community, that hope is now a reality. The comedy is indeed getting a season six after all, but its savior might not be who you were expecting.
It looks like the doors of Greendale Community College are closing forever.
Today any hope for intelligent, innovative comedy finding a home at NBC was almost permanently nuked like a microwaved gremlin as the network has announced the long-dreaded yet tragically inevitable cancellation of the cult favorite comedy series Community only a few weeks after the conclusion of its fifth season.
