Of course “Napoleon Dynamite” the animated TV series will be as good as “Napoleon Dynamite” the un-animated movie. It has all the same writers and all the same characters.
How could it be any different?
What are you, some kinda frickin’ idiot?
Napoleon Dynamite, for anyone who missed the 2004 movie, is a teenager who lives in Preston, Idaho, and sees himself as, among other things, a ninja expert, a gifted visionary and a ladies’ man.
In reality, he is none of those things. But who among us, as teenagers, saw ourselves as we really were?
Napoleon also lives in a world that even by teenage standards is a little weird.
His brother Kip, 32, is convinced he will meet the right girl if he only spends enough time online. Their grandmother, with whom they reside, nurtures the lads by telling Napoleon, for instance, that his acne is disgusting and he needs to go inside and “pop those things.”
From here there’s naturally nowhere to go except to a series of surreal adventures, which start tonight with Napoleon and Kip developing superpowers and facing off in an ultimate fighting championship at a forbidding arena called Thundercone.
It doesn’t go quite as planned, but it makes life livelier than it otherwise might be in Preston, Idaho.
Whether Napoleon will work as a weekly animated series may depend on how well a teenager fits in with the other oddballs who populate Fox’s Sunday-night animation bloc.
But if he doesn’t work out, Fox could always give his spot to Misty, a guest character in the premiere episode.
Voiced by Amy Poehler, Misty is an immigrant who isn’t interested in discussing her native culture.
“I want to be an American,” she says. “I want to make friends and say mean things behind their back.”
Sounds American already.
