Show how Joe Pera is talking to you, Ted Lassoand Bob’s Burgers they summed up the feeling of fitness while still being very funny. For those looking for a feel-good comedy with lots of heart, and maybe a Sasquatch or two, look no further. The Great North.
The Great North
from producer Loren Bouchard, who shares Bouchard’s appearance on another recent Fox series Bob’s Burgers and Apple TV+’s Central Parkbut it was created Bob’s Writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, along with writer and voice actress Minty Lewis (Regular Show, Infinity Train. (Cinematic Universe fans should do themselves a favor and get to know the Molyneux brothers, who were tapped to write the script. Deadpool 3.) The writing is always thoughtful and funny, and the creative titans above feature some of the funniest voices in TV comedy.
The Great North It follows the beloved Tobin family, residents of the fictional Lone Moose, Alaska. They are a family that loves each other and is never afraid to show it. While other cartoon families may have a tender moment towards the end of the episode, the Tobin family is nothing but heartwarming. The father of the family, Beef Tobin, is voiced by Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation) is a single father of four children who is constantly learning how his wife, Kathleen’s, left the family several years ago. Beef is an avid fisherman and outdoorsman, not unlike many of Offerman’s characters—or Offerman himself—though he has a much warmer demeanor than Ron Swanson’s. He is soft-spoken, sensitive, kind-hearted, and possibly the most supportive father you will see on television today. If you met him in real life, you would want to give that guy a hug. Beef encourages his kids to be themselves, help others, and follow their dreams. He is not without his faults, especially when it comes to getting over his ex, but he is always open to changing his views. Cows are the glue that holds together an already close-knit family.
The Tobin children each pack a punch of romance and quirky personalities. The eldest son and forever optimistic Wolf (Will Forte of MacGruber and The Last Man on Earth famous), and his wife, Honeybee (Dulce Sloan, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah) met on a movie quote message board and quickly fell in love with the movie. Honeybee moves from Fresno to Lone Moose for love, as the pair trade movie references and classic puns. They are a famous movie couple, and they are happy even in ordinary movies, which makes the couple very attractive.
Ham Tobin (Paul Rust, Love) is a bit distant but sweet hearted. Ham is openly gay, and his family accepts him with open hearts, reminding him many times of his coming out and accepting him at every event. Tobin’s sister, Judy, is voiced by Jenny Slate,Marcel Shell in Boots), is Ham’s “Alaskan Twin,” meaning they are not biological twins but born exactly 9 months apart. Judy is often seen on the roof of the Tobin homestead talking to her imaginary friend Alanis Morissette who is voiced by… well, the real Alanis Morissette, who appears to be an apparition in the aurora borealis that helps her out. speak in her adulthood. escape. Rounding out the siblings is ten-year-old Moon Tobin, voiced by comedian Aparna Nancherla (Company), who always wears bears.
Over the course of the first two seasons, we see the Tobin family embark on many adventures, often without roots while being overly concerned about the feelings of other family members. Mindset has always been key to the show, and season 3 is no different. The episode finds Wolf and Honeybee stuck on the side of the road with car trouble, so they take refuge at nearby Crocodile Rob’s, an Australian restaurant that looks like a cross between a Rainforest Café and an Outback Steakhouse, or as Honeybee describes it, “It It’s like if Huge Jackman was a bar.” Wolf has mixed feelings at first, as Rob’s crocodile is on the cattle list for a “Tobins No Goins” location due to past drunken incidents involving the family’s mother, Kathleen.
The pair soon discover that Rob’s crocodile is great, leading to several musical numbers featuring flying kangaroos and fried food dancing during the episode. When the other Tobin brothers join in the fun of the decline, they realize that the shame that often followed their mother is not theirs to bear, and they can enjoy it even if they are still worried about hurting the cow’s feelings. When Beef finds out, he looks deeply into himself to admit that he has good memories of those places with Kathleen, but sometimes good memories are very painful. These facts are carefully written to the point of being therapeutic.
While the show doesn’t seem to get the same love as her sister shows Bob’s BurgersWe are lucky that Fox believes The Great North Enough that she already had a green season 4. Her writing is sensitive, thoughtful, and funny, the animation is lively, the songs and dance numbers always contain a lot of visual entertainment. This kind of entertaining show, a lively family comedy with a heart of gold, nourishes the soul. It is what most of us need in life.
