thrizzle5Around Stately Beat Manor, few names are held in such reverence as that of Michael Kupperman, because he makes us laugh tears of unfettered joy and abandon. Well, not only is a new Tales Designed To Thrizzle upon us (a collection looming — can such laughs even be survived?) but a Snake’N’Bacon pilot will air in a few short weeks on Adult Swim!:

Snake’N’Bacon the TV show pilot is going to be broadcast as part of Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block of programming, on May 10th at 12:45 AM. The cast includes Kristin Schaal, Dan Bakkedahl, Bill Hader, Peter Serafinowicz, James Urbaniak, Brian Stack, and David Rakoff, in live-action and animated segments.

Need we point out that this cast encompasses a veritable laffs-a-plenty Hall Of Fame, with the pedigree of SNL, The Daily Show, Conan O’Brien, Flight of the Conchords, and Look Around You? Kupperman posts a few stills from the show on his blog, and it’s pretty safe to say that the world is never going to be the same.
May 10th. Mark your calendars and prepare for the arrival.


  1. I just saw Kristen Schall open for the Conchords. She’s so, so, so very funny. Makes me sad I don’t have cable to check out this new show.

  2. Tales Designed to Thrizzle is one of the funniest things of the epoch. I hope the show can get past the pilot stage. That still alone has me clamoring!
