Napoleon Dynamite, Jan. 15 @ 8:30/7:30c on Fox!
An animated series based on the hit film, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE follows the comic adventures of America’s most awesomely awkward teenager and his offbeat family and friends as they navigate small-town life in rural Idaho. Whether he’s facing down bullies or discovering the meaning of friendship, NAPOLEON proves that true heroes follow their own path – especially when they have secret ninja skills from the government.
The original cast from the film – Heder, Aaron Ruell, Efren Ramirez, Tina Majorino, Sandy Martin, Jon Gries and Diedrich Bader – return to voice their roles, and many new characters will be added along the way.
Napoleon 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, is an unemployed 32-year-old who lives at home and believes he would be an amazing catch for any girl who responds to his online come-ons. The Dynamite brothers live with GRANDMA, a crusty woman who can often be found four-wheeling with her lady friends at the local sand dunes.
Napoleon’s allies include PEDRO, his unflappable best friend who has recently been elected class president; and DEB, an incredibly sweet girl who sees the good in Napoleon and dreams of someday being his wife. Napoleon’s UNCLE RICO lives out of an orange custom van, where he obsesses over his botched high school football career and dreams up ways to become rich and famous. Then there’s REX KWON DO, a self-proclaimed martial-arts master who runs the local dojo.
