Executive produced and directed by Ryan Crego (Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh, Sanjay and Craig) from his original story concept with Blake Lemons as supervising producer, Arlo the Alligator Boy follows a wide-eyed youngun, who happens to be half human and half gator, from his sheltered life in the swamp to bustling New York City on a mission to find his long-lost father. Along the way, he meets a group of misfits who quickly become his new family.
The 80 min., 2D-animated movie boasts a stellar voice cast of actors and singers, including Michael J. Woodard (Arlo), Mary Lambert (Bertie), Michael “Flea” Balzary of the Red Hot Chili Peppers (Ruff), Annie Potts (Edmee), Tony Hale (Teeny Tiny Tony), Brett Gelman (Marcellus), Jonathan Van Ness (Furlecia), Haley Tju (Alia), Jennifer Coolidge (Stucky) and Vincent Rodriguez III (Ansel Beauregard).
Arlo’s big musical adventure will lead into a follow-up series, I ❤️ Arlo, which will pick up in NYC as the gang goes about revitalizing their abandoned seaside neighborhood.
