In the all-new holiday-themed episode airing December 19 on FOX, when Jerry's Bigfoot costume gets stolen a few days before Christmas, Beef helps him track it down… and the Tobin kids try to build an elaborate gingerbread village.
To get us even more into the holiday spirit, FOX has sent us an exclusive clip for The Great North’s upcoming all-new Sunday episode, “Dip the Halls 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, airing December 19 (8:31 PM ET/PT) on FOX, when Jerry's Bigfoot costume gets stolen a few days before Christmas, Beef helps him track it down… and the Tobin kids try to build an elaborate gingerbread village.
So how about that exclusive clip? Well, funny you should ask…
In this week’s exclusive clip, “Beef Waited To Find The Perfect Christmas Tree,” the Tobins decorate for Christmas… with the perfect sized tree that someone thinks is “smokin hot!”
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.
