Father John Misty, Andre 3000 and Lizzo will make guest appearances on a new Adult Swim cartoon. Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio stars Ilana Glazer (Broad City) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) amongst many others in its regular cast.
The musicians are set to appear in their own individual episodes, where they will also perform songs. Show creator, Brad Neely, has written all of them for the cartoon, which has been described as a, “quarter-hour animated sketch show. It will feature a collection of frenetic one-off bits, shorts, and songs all filtered through Neely’s signature visual style.”
Speaking to AWN about what to expect from the show Neely said, “They should expect endless variety. Lots and lots of little bits crammed in. And lots of music.”
“I wrote around 100 songs. About 60 or 70 made it into the 10 episodes. Music is a huge part of the show. This was an opportunity for me to make a lot of music and have fun people sing my songs.”
The cartoon will be Neely’s second show for Adult Swim, with his previous one being China, IL. During the same interview the creator went on to explain the reasons behind the highly unusual name for his second project.
“It’s intentionally meaningless. We tried some titles that had meaning, but this one just made us laugh.”
Hip hop artist Lizzo also talked about her role in the show when she said that she was, “really excited about being a cartoon. This won’t be the last time I do it though,” she told City Pages. “I’m just exploring what it means to be me.”
The 2-D comedy series, which was produced by Titmouse, will premiere on Adult Swim on Sunday July 10th.
