Robert Downey Jr. was originally signed to do the voice of the Devil, but he was battling drug addictions and legal problems at the time. When Downey landed in prison, the role was given to Alan Cumming. See more »

I'm religious and I love this programme. That is my first point, just to make clear that people who say this is bad are wrong.
Okay I was forced to watch it against my choice and now I am so glad. It is hysterically funny and very well written. Alan Cumming as the devil is by far the greatest cartoon character (not including anything from the simpsons) and is the best portrayal of the devil I have seen upon the screen. Ever. This show not only has wit, farce, brilliant scripting but morals and style. It is NOT saying anything bad against religion at all and really makes you feel good about yourself.
I am very upset, so America dropped it due to religious folk complaining and here in Britain we got the whole series BUT due to it being an American cartoon it didn't really take off. Yes it is an acquired taste but take the time and you'll be hooked too.
Funny is too bland a word for this show. It is BRILLIANT.
