Mike Judge, creator of Buffcoat and Beaver, Office Space, and King of the Hill, is back with a new animated series. This one, the Wall Street Journal reports, mocks a family of suburban environmentalists:
Director Mike Judge's new animated television series "The Goode Family" is a send-up of a clan of environmentalists who live by the words "What would Al Gore do?" Gerald and Helen Goode want nothing more than to minimize their carbon footprint. They feed their dog, Che, only veggies (much to the pet's dismay) and Mr. Goode dutifully separates sheets of toilet paper when his wife accidentally buys two-ply. And, of course, the family drives a hybrid.
The show premieres tomorrow on ABC. A preview clip from the website:
