Press Release

New original animated series Mr. Pickles debuts on Sunday, September 21st at Midnight (ET / PT) on Adult Swim followed by the epic return of fan favorite Squidbillies at 12:15am (ET / PT) for an eighth season. These two series are guaranteed to leave you loving Sunday night and hating Monday morning even more than you already do!


Mr. Pickles is Adult Swim’s newest original animated series set in the small, old-fashioned world of Old Town that is slowly being taken over by the modern world. The series centers on the lives of the Goodman family and their innocent six-year-old son Tommy, whose best friend is the family’s lovable border collie, Mr. Pickles.
The two roam around Old Town together getting into classic adventures. Unbeknownst to Tommy and everyone else, except Tommy’s Grandpa, Mr. Pickles has an evil streak and frequently wanders off to kill, mutilate and hump his deserving victims. But the one thing everybody knows about the sweet and adorable dog is that he loves pickles and he gets one every time he’s a good boy.
Mr. Pickles, a HotHouse production, is created and executive produced by Will Carsola (HBO’s Funny or Die Presents) and Dave Stewart (HBO’s Funny or Die Presents) and executive produced by Michael Rizzo. Along with guest star Brooke Shields, a great cast of voice-acting talent including Frank Collison (Eagleheart), Jay Johnston (The Sarah Silverman Program), Kaitlyn Robrock (Golan the Insatialbe), Carsola, and Stewart, is sure to entertain even the faintest of heart.
America’s fourth favorite animated family returns for season eight of Squidbillies, featuring brand new grandiloquent episodes. Watch as the Cuylers kick the ass of America’s toughest issues, including marriage inequality, taint cancer, speciesism, and the impending Russian snake apocalypse. It’s good clean family fun for childless families!
To celebrate its new season on Adult Swim, Squidbillies will once again entertain audiences with a plethora of music stylings. Season eight of Squidbillies brings you a new cover of its theme song each week including renditions by Centro-matic, Dwight Yoakam, Todd Rundgren and King Khan and the Shrines. You’ll just have to tune in to hear them all first hand. Squidbillies is created, written and produced by Dave Willis and Jim Fortier.
