Fox’s Animation Domination High-Def block has a new home, debuting Jan. 22 on FXX with new episodes of Lucas Bros. Moving Co. and Stone Quackers.
Fans will get a sneak peek of the block Jan. 1 at midnight, immediately following a special marathon of The Simpsons. Following the official launch on Jan. 22, the animation block will air on Thursdays at midnight ET/PT, featuring fresh episodes of Lucas Bros. Moving Co. and Stone Quackers, and encore showings of High School USA!, Axe Cop and other animated shorts.
Here’s how FXX describes the shows:
Lucas Bros. Moving Co. — Brooklyn-based comedians and identical twins Keith and Kenny Lucas get animated in the Lucas Bros. Moving Co. After inheriting their uncle’s van, the brothers begin to run a moving company in their neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, populated by everyone from their best friend Jerrod (Jerrod Carmichael) to Jake the Snake Roberts, and their mom (Hannibal Buress). The brothers work only to pay their rent and drink beer at Jerrod’s bar, but nothing is easy for the Lucas Brothers. Even the simplest job of installing an air conditioner leads to an epic trek through a frozen tundra in the basement of their apartment building. Guest stars include Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer from Broad City; Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson and Jillian Bell from Workaholics; Jimmy Tatro (22 Jump Street); Michael Che (Saturday Night Live); Eric Andre (The Eric Andre Show); and musical artists Action Bronson, Questlove, Danny Brown, YG and Tyler the Creator.
Stone Quackers — Stone Quackers will shock, it will disturb, it will provoke. Executive produced by the acclaimed actor John C. Reilly and renowned artist/creator Ben Jones, the duck denizens of Cheeseburger Island endure hardships ranging from hurricanes and severed heads to dangerous hot dogs and the shame of being alive. The show is based on the upbringing of Whitmer Thomas and Clay Tatum (from the lauded live show PowerViolence) and their experience living in the remote and strange city of Gulf Shores, Ala. Actress and writer Heather Lawless (The Heart, She Holler) also stars as John C. Reilly’s angelic yet deviant paramour. Guest stars include Pam Adlon (Louie, Californication), Rory Scovel (Ground Floor) and Budd Anthony Diaz (PowerViolence) with music from The Zombies, Lightning Bolt, and The Doobie Brothers.
