Exclusive Clip: ‘The Great North – The Beef Hunt’

In the all-new episode airing November 21 on FOX, the Tobin kids and Honeybee take part in an old family tradition called ‘The Beef Hunt,’ while Beef wrestles with his greatest fear.

It doesn’t get any better than this! It’s almost Turkey Day and in honor of the upcoming holiday our friends at FOX have sent us an exclusive clip (well, yeah…maybe it’s not just for the holiday, they do this most Fridays!) for The Great North’s upcoming Sunday episode, “Good Beef Hunting Adventure.” Animated by Bento Box Entertainment and produced by 20th Television, the adult 2D animated comedy series hails from Loren Bouchard, Wendy Molyneux, and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, the genius minds behind Bob’s Burgers.

The Great North follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family. As a single dad, Beef (Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation, Making It), does his best to keep his bunch of kids close – especially his only daughter, Judy (Jenny Slate, Bob’s Burgers), whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall. Rounding out the family are Judy’s older brother, Wolf (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth); his fiancé, Honeybee (Dulcé Sloan, The Daily Show); Judy’s middle brother, Ham (Paul Rust, Love); and ten-year-old-going-on-fifty little brother, Moon (Aparna Nancherla, A Simple Favor). While the children’s mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, Alyson (Megan Mullally, Will & Grace), and her imaginary friend, Alanis Morissette (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.

In Sunday’s episode, the Tobin kids and Honeybee take part in an old family tradition called “The Beef Hunt.” Meanwhile, Beef wrestles with his greatest fear. The all-new episode airs November 21 (8:31 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

But wait! This is where it gets really good. This weekend, when you’re battling over the last box of stuffing at the grocery store and there’s no more fresh cranberries… and after heading home to stress over your last-minute plans for Thanksgiving… sit back, top off your wine glass (or adult beverage of your choice) and check out the exclusive clip and just maybe you’ll feel just a little bit better about yourself and yours, because isn’t that what TV is all about?

In the exclusive clip, the gang gets together to prep the day before Thanksgiving and it’s TENSE (sound familiar?), and to lighten the mood, Beef asks everyone to share what they’re thankful for. But of course, sarcasm and hostility prevail. Check out the clip, “The Day Before Thanksgiving Is Tense.”

The series, which has been renewed and is currently in production on its third season, was created, written and executive-produced by Bob’s Burgers’ writers and executive producers Molyneux and Molyneux-Logelin, as well as writer Minty Lewis (Regular Show). The Molyneux sisters serve as showrunners. Bob’s Burgers creator Bouchard is also an executive producer.
