Based on the hit film comes an animated series that follows the continuing adventures of America's most awesome awkward teenager and his quirky family and friends as they struggle to navigate small-town life in rural Idaho. The original cast from the film will voice their characters in the series. Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) is a 16-year-old boy convinced - for no apparent reason - that he is destined for greatness and blessed with unlimited "sweet abilities." He spends his days practicing ninja moves, drawing ligers, soul dancing and bragging about his "girlfriend in Oklahoma" whom nobody has ever seen. Napoleon's brother, Kip (Aaron Ruell), is an unemployed 32-year-old who lives at home and believes he would be an amazing catch for any girl who would respond to his online come-ons. The Dynamite brothers live with Grandma (Sandy Martin), a crusty woman who can often be found four-wheeling with her lady friends at the local sand dunes.

I'm so psyched about this new show! Ever since I saw the movie nearly a decade ago, I've been a fan of everything "Napoleon Dynamite". And now that they've re-imagined an animated series revolved around the egocentric character and his absurdist suburban life, I can't wait to see how it turns out! The fact that they even brought back the original cast from the film to voice their characters is all the more awesome. After watching the first two episodes, this season is already getting off to a pretty good start. It's definitely a breath of fresh air compared to Fox's most recent colossal failure, "Allen Gregory" (which just got canned). Anyway, I definitely recommend checking out this show, especially if you love the movie it's based upon. It might just be the next best thing to riding a liger in outer space…well, almost.
It starts well it left off, still funny.
I had second thoughts when I looked up this show... until I watched these episodes. Making it into a cartoon was genius and I totally enjoyed the creativity and colors and effects they put into it. All in all: FUNNY AS HECK. I really enjoyed seeing the adventures of this nerd and hearing the original cast.
Napoleon is Back!
And this time, he's animated. Have to say, if you are a fan of the movie, you will not be disappointed. It's way better than you would expect.
