f you’ve been missing the wild adventures of Tigtone, the master-quester and his magically regenerative sidekick Helpy, here’s some news to brighten your day. Tigtone will begin its second season on Adult Swim on Sunday, September 13th at midnight. The official synopsis reads: “With their once idyllic fantasy land now reduced to an idyllic fantasy wasteland, Tigtone the master-questerer and his magically regenerative sidekick Helpy must face all new mischievous monsters, all new enchanted chaos, and all new irresistible quests in their all new baffling adventures! 10 to be exact!”
Tigtone is created by Andrew Koehler and Benjamin Martian, who also serve as executive producers with Blake Anderson (Workaholics). The quarter-hour series combines highly rendered, hand-painted fantasy art, motion capture performance, 2D animation, and pseudo-3D visual effects. The wizards at Titmouse, the award-winning animation production company, have ventured into uncharted territory to pioneer this radical new style, creating a Tigtone universe that is beautifully unsettling. The first season of the show debuted in January 2019.
Nils Frykdahl reprises his role as Tigtone along with Debi Derryberry as Helpy. Returning voice cast members include Jeffrey Combs, Bill Corbett, Lucy Davis, Cree Summer, and Gary Anthony Williams. The second season also features guest stars such as Maria Bamford, Phil LaMarr and Gregg Turkington.
