Sit Down, Shut Up

Hey, don't call me rude! That's just the name of Fox's new animated series, which premieres April 19. It's about the dysfunctional staff at Knob Haven High, with voice work by Will Arnett (health teacher), Jason Bateman (P.E. teacher), Henry Winkler (German teacher), Cheri O'Teri, Will Forte and Kenan Thompson, among others. Oh, and did I mention it was created by Mitch Hurwitz? Yes, the same Mitch Hurwitz who created "Arrested Development." Yay.

Now, let's do the math on this one. First of all, "Sit Down, Shut Up" is a FOX animated series (they've had some success with those, right? "The Simpsons," "Family Guy," "King of the Hill," and "Futurama" come to mind). It was created by Mitch Hurwitz. And it will be voiced by all those people I mentioned above. So, yeah, that all adds up to awesome in this gal's book. Consider my DVR series recording set.

As a bonus treat, here's a fun clip of Arnett and Bateman trashing each other. Pure comedy.
