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 ...

'Drawn Together' frequently drew the ire of advertisers and morality groups who were displeased with the content of episodes. The network supported the show early on, but by Season Three, they felt the show's humor was simply too far outside the boundaries of good taste. Although the show's producers expressed a willingness to tone down the content, the network heads did not feel it was worth the trouble to deal with the problem anymore, citing that a number of advertisers had pulled out, and the Parents Television Council were sponsoring a boycott of the show.

I love this show so much and always enjoy the characters crazy shenanigans every episode. People say that it is a rip off of south park but I disagree (mostly because I cant stand south park)the voice work is excellent the animation is the best I've seen for an adult cartoon in many years and the script is witty and innovative.
However I have a feeling that many of the plots are likely to offend a lot of people. Not only are the jokes risqué some of them are in bad taste. Saying this though if you enjoy the programme you can usually come to the the conclusion that these are cartoon characters and as such behave as cartoon characters (completely insane).
A prime example of this insanity usually rests with captain hero who believed that raping xandier and his parents would somehow erase their memories and believing that a Greek family living next door was a Greek fraternity who had a goat mascot that was actually their daughter who coincidentally looked nothing like a goat!
