Exclusive Clip: ‘The Great North – Poetry of The Penals Adventure’
The Great North reminds me of the sound of wood crackling in the fireplace, the feel of a cool, brisk breeze on my cheek, a glass of fine merlot swirling in my hand, and of course, the belly laughs from watching the hilarious animated comedy that makes me almost look forward to Sunday night. So, once again just in time to get us into that weekend vibe, our pals at Fox have shared an exclusive clip: this week it’s “Beef Is Mesmerized and Agrees to Attend a Poetry Meeting” from this Sunday’s all-new episode, “Poetry of The Penals Adventure.”
In the episode, Wolf chaperones Ham and Judy on a school field 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.
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, Beef Is Mesmerized and Agrees to Attend a Poetry Meeting, Beef meets a lovely lady and lies about being a poet:
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.
