If you’ve ever pondered what Timothy Leary’s favorite cartoon would be, Netflix may have found it. In the new official trailer for The Midnight Gospel — created by the brilliantly bananas mind behind Adventure Time, Pendleton Ward, and comedian Duncan Trussell — we travel through incredible, unnerving, blacklight poster-colored worlds of 2D animation as “spacecaster” hero Clancy asks the deep questions.
Ward’s knack for straddling the line between creepy and cute is well evident (animated by the accomplished artists at Titmouse), and the trailer makes it clear that this adult animation project will be a whole ‘nother level of adventure for grown-up fans of Finn and Jake to embark on.
Synopsis: The Midnight Gospel is the story of Clancy, a spacecaster with a malfunctioning multiverse simulator who leaves the comfort of his extra-dimensional home on the Chromatic Ribbon to interview beings living in other worlds. Created by Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time) and Duncan Trussell (Duncan Trussell Family Hour podcast), and animated by Titmouse.
