Exclusive Clip: ‘The Great North – Beef Can’t Wait for The School Play and Moon Wants to Stay Home Alone’
This Sunday when you’re grumbling that the weekend is almost over, you can look forward to one bright spot to fuel your inevitable return to the mundane week ahead – new animation on FOX! And now, as a special anticipatory treat, and to put a smile on your face, our good friends at FOX have shared another exclusive clip for an upcoming episode of The Great North, this one for Sunday’s episode, “Stools Rush in Adventure.”
In the all-new episode, the school is putting on a musical based on The Perfect Storm, and Judy desperately wants to be one of the leads. Meanwhile, Moon tries to convince his family he’s ready to stay home alone for the very first time. Check it out Sunday, March 13 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Animated by Bento Box Entertainment and produced by 20th Television, the adult 2D animated comedy series hails from Loren Bouchard, Wendy Molyneux, and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, the genius minds behind Bob’s Burgers.
The Great North follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family. As a single dad, Beef (Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation, Making It), does his best to keep his bunch of kids close – 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 are Judy’s older brother, Wolf (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth); his fiancé, Honeybee (Dulcé Sloan, The Daily Show); Judy’s middle brother, Ham (Paul Rust, Love); and ten-year-old-going-on-fifty little brother, Moon (Aparna Nancherla, A Simple Favor). While the children’s mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, Alyson (Megan Mullally, Will & Grace), and her imaginary friend, Alanis Morissette (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.
In the exclusive clip, is the Tobin family headed to a “Perfect Storm” as they discuss their outsized hopes for the school musical? And will Moon be allowed to stay home alone?

The series was created, written and executive-produced by Bob’s Burgers’ writers and executive producers Molyneux and Molyneux-Logelin, as well as writer Minty Lewis (Regular Show). The Molyneux sisters serve as showrunners. Bob’s Burgers creator Bouchard is also an executive producer.
