Father of the Pride
Did anyone else out there watch Father of the Pride on Tuesday night? It’s an animated cartoon targeted towards an adult audience. Story revolves around a family of lions owned by Siegfried & Roy. The first episode which repeats tonight was so laugh out loud funny that I can’t wait for future episodes. So here’s hoping the show does well. Not since Daria have I been this excited about a cartoon show.

Father of The Pride is the creation of Dreamworks, the same people behind Shrek. But FoTP is no children’s show. Its an edgey, irreverent animated comedy meant for an audience mature enough to understand it, this is why its on at a late spot. Even though there are only a handful of episodes I put this up there with the likes of The Simpsons, Dinosaurs (jim henson creation w/ a Homer-ish T-rex, his family live in the great continent “Pangea”), Family Guy and other such satires. This show speaks to many audiences; ravers, music/movie buffs, furries and just about anyone seeking a good chuckle.
