DRAWN TOGETHER (eight episodes) - This is the true story of eight characters, picked to live in a house to find out what happens when people stop being real and start getting animated. Presented as if it were a real Primetime reality series, "Drawn Together" answers the question of what happens when eight completely different cartoon characters from various genres and styles live together and have their lives filmed for the entire world to see. Captures the daily adventures of eight mismatched cartoon characters using the dramatic storytelling conventions of established reality television shows. The housemates include: "Captain Hero," a not so moral do-gooder reminiscent of the Saturday morning TV super heroes of the 70's; "Clara," a 20 year old sweet and naive fairy-tale princess; "Toot," a black and white pudgy heart throb from the 20's; "Foxxy Love," a sexy mystery solving musician; "Spanky Ham," a foul-mouthed Internet download pig; "Ling-Ling," an adorable Asian trading card ...

One first season episode, "Terms of Endearment", had a delayed airing. It showed Captain Hero as a quadriplegic after giving up his super powers (saying, "You know what happens to superheroes who give up their powers".) It was such an obvious reference to former Superman 'Christopher Reeve' that it wasn't aired until the middle of the second season, after Reeve passed away. See more »
This show is easily one of the funniest shows on television right now. Spanky Ham (Adam Carolla's character) is a friggin' riot - they all are. Even the unlikable characters (Wil-douche) are good as you know they are there for one of the other more likable characters' evil interests.
It is also, like The Simpsons, the kind of show that rewards one for paying attention. (Maybe you missed the Glory Hole, Spanky Ham's uttering of "Bukkake?, etc.)
Yeah, it's crass, vulgar, mean-spirited - but it's FUNNY! If this kind of humor isn't your cup of tea go to the Shrek board or something.
