‘The Great North’ is an adult animated sitcom, created by ‘Bob’s Burgers’ authors, The Molyneux brothers. Wendy Molyneux-Logelin, Lizzie Molyneux, and Minty Lewis have created this sitcom as part of the Fox Animation lineup. The show seems to have some similarities with ‘Bob’s Burgers’ not only in its artistic style but also in its humor. But that’s not all, as the characters look quite attractive in the setting too. This animated series, as the name suggests will take place in Alaska and will follow a single father and his family.
In ‘The Great North’, we follow up with the adventures of the Tobin family, where we meet single dad, Beef Tobin. We see her doing her best to navigate and keep her kids together. The most prominent of the five children was Judy, her only daughter. Her artistic dreams seem to take her away from the family to the mall where she tries to make them happen. And since her mother isn’t in the picture, Beef took it upon himself to find a different reason to connect with his daughter.
The other members of the Tobin Family are Wolf, the oldest brother, Honeybee, his fiancée, Ham, his middle brother, and Moon, a ten year old younger brother. Other notable characters are new boss Judy, Alyson, and her imaginary friend, Alanis Morissette.
