The anime spoof Perfect Hair Forever joins the lineup on Cartoon Network’s [adult swim] block on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 12:30 a.m. The last of five new fall offerings to debut during the late-night toon showcase, the series follows The Boondocks, Squidbillies, Stroker & Hoop and 12 oz. Mouse to the screen.
Created by Space Ghost Coast to Coast writer/producer Matt Harrigan, Perfect Hair Forever chronicles the adventures of a young, balding boy on a quest for perfect hair in a mystical land. Along the way, Gerald seeks guidance from a pervy old mystic he refers to as ‘Uncle Grandfather,’ and has encounters with a singing hot dog and a tree that tells inappropriate jokes and longs for acceptance.
[adult swim] viewers were previously introduced to the Flash-animated Perfect Hair Forever in September when it first appeared as a quickly-produced fill-in for the delayed Squidbillies. Based on viewers’ positive reactions, Cartoon Network decided it give it whirl as a full series. The network will initially air six episodes of this latest twisted toon from Williams Street Prods., the small, but prolific, animation shop behind such [adult swim] hits as Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sealab 2021, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law and Squidbillies.
