Joey Lauren Adams,
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Following the events of the movie 'Clerks', Dante Hicks still works at the Quick Stop, and his best friend Randall Graves still 'works' at the video store (even though he spends most of his time figuring out ways to get Dante into trouble). However, with the arrival into town of diabolical billionaire megalomaniac Leonardo Leonardo, their lives are about to get more unusual, even if their jobs remain as unsatisfying and tedious as before. Soon, Dante and Randall find themselves thrown headlong into crazy adventures involving, in no particular order, a monkey, Little League Baseball, Korean animators, Canadian exports, lesbian ex-girlfriends of Randall, Judge Reinhold, the Matrix, refridgerator door locks and numerous unwarranted 'Star Wars' references. And as always, they receive very little in the way of constructive help from slackers Jay and Silent Bob.Written by
The original voice for Leonardo Leonardo was going to be played by Alan Rickman, but was replaced by Alec Baldwin courtesy of ABC. When Rickman was still on board, the cartoon designers got inspiration from his character Hans Gruber from Die Hard (1988). Disagreeing with the concept, Rickman suggested them not to keep too close to his own persona, so they pushed their research further for a while. Ironically enough, when Baldwin came on, the designers came back to the Hans Gruber look they first though of. See more »

Some episodes begin with Randal announcing "Clerks is drawn before a live studio audience," a parody of similar announcements made during 1970s sitcoms. See more »
Episode 2 features a scene where Dante and Randal watch a film called "Flintstone's List," an obvious takeoff on "Schindler's List." While it appears on the DVD, it was cut from the TV airing. See more »
"Clerks: The Animated Series" didn't get enough airtime considering it was one of the best cartoons on a national network. The cartoon series is a continuation of the adventures of Dante and Randall, two begrudging peddlers of the convenience store trade who make Star Wars references, talk about past relationships, and trying to move up in the world. Granted, it's not going to be like the movie but that's alright. Smith decides to replace it with a particularly offbeat brand of humor with Dante and Randall getting into adventure after adventure. All done on a grand scale. Alec Baldwin is particularly funny as the show's closeted capitalist villain as well as Charles Barkley, completely f**king up his image in good spirits, as himself. Definitely worth a look for it's off the wall comedy.
