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
Produced with Touchstone Television, Clerks was Disney's second adult animated series, with the first one being The PJs, but it was also the first and only adult animated series produced with Disney Television Animation, which was uncredited. See more »
[Randal's opening argument to the all-black jury of NBA players]
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Dante Hicks is just like you. He lurves grape soda. He knows what it's like when the guy at the supermarket won't take your "food stamps". Or how it feels to wait all month for your "welfare check".
[waving his arms from side to side]
Hey! Ho! Hey! Ho! Thank you.
Great... now the jury hates us.
Nonsense. I've got them eating out of my hand.

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 »
The DVD collection fgures a few outtakes from the two aired episodes, along with 'animatics': pencil-sketch versions of the episodes, featuring some footage that was removed before the actual eps. See more »
Clerks is one fantastic cartoon, which is why some fans of the film may have been turned off. I know I was at first. But by the third episode it was obivious that the creators wanted to make a CARTOON SERIES, not twenty minute segments of a sequel to the cult original. After this realisation my enjoyment increased ten-fold. The show looks great, with excellent animation and character design. The six stories are strong and contain great dialogue and set pieces. I love all of Kevin Smith's films, and this complements them perfectly, while still being it's own thing. The show could have (and should have) been huge, and if you need any more proof buy the dvd and see how the first six episodes of this cancelled series hold up to the first six episodes of the simpsons, south park or family guy.
The 'JAPANAMATION FEVER' set piece alone is worth the asking price!
