The entire original cast and Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane, as the voice of I.S.R.A.E.L, get drawn into the brand new animated feature film, which is now available on DVD and download-to-own.
NEW YORK, April 1, 2010 -- Get drawn in all over again. From the warped minds of creators, writers and executive producers Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser, comes the most reprehensible and most guilty-pleasure movie of all time – "The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!" This is the first animated film based on the "Drawn Together" series featuring the entire original cast and "Family Guy's" Seth MacFarlane as the voice of I.S.R.A.E.L.
"The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!" DVD will be released by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment on Tuesday, April 20. It will be also available on download-to-own platforms in HD and SD including iTunes (pre-order 4/5), Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Zune, Sony PlayStation Store, and Amazon Video on Demand.

“The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!” stars the incorrigible cast of the most offensive animated reality show ever to air and this time they’re starring in their very own feature-length movie! When the mystery-solving musician Foxxy Love notices she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped – something they’ve never been able to do before – she realizes their show has been canceled. Determined to get back on the air, the gang travels to Make-A-Point-Land in order to get a point (and get back on the air). With more depravity than could have ever been shown on TV, this is the definitive "Drawn Together"experience.
"The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!" DVD features over one hour of bonus features including: “Anatomy of An Animated Sex Scene,” an in-depth investigation into the genesis of the soon-to-be infamous 3-D sex scene; “Re-Animating Drawn Together: From the Small Screen to The Slightly Bigger Screen,” a technical piece focusing on the production/animation end of the project; “Drawn Together: The Legacy,” a faux-serious reflection on the show’s impact and lasting cultural relevance; “Drawn Together: True Confessionals,” intimate interviews with the actors and co-creators about the show and the dawn of the movie; “Drawn Together Minisodes,” a fond remembrance of all the loveable characters from the series hosted by The Jew Producer; “D.I.Y 3-D Glasses,” step-by-step instructions on how to create your own 3-D glasses; and deleted scenes.

"Drawn Together" premiered on COMEDY CENTRAL in October 2004 and aired for three seasons and 36 episodes. The series presented a world in which cartoon characters from various genres of animation were brought together to live under one roof. The characters left their animated "reality" and entered a new world where their cartoon universes collide with a bang, combining different styles of animation and different personalities, all "drawn together." This was COMEDY CENTRAL's first original animated series that was drawn traditionally and in 2-D digital ink and paint animation.
The eight stars/housemates represent iconic archetypes from the world of animation and include: Captain Hero, a not-so-moral do-gooder reminiscent of the Saturday morning TV super heroes of the 70s; Clara, a 20-year-old sweet and naive fairy-tale princess; Toot Braunstein, a black-and-white pudgy heart throb from the 20s; Foxxy Love, a sexy mystery-solving musician; Spanky Ham, a foul-mouthed Internet download pig; Ling-Ling, an adorable Asian trading card mini-monster; Wooldoor Sockbat, a wacky Saturday morning whatchamacallit; and Xandir, a strong young gay video game warrior.
