For the first of a few New York Comic Con special interview episodes, we have the entire line up of Hulu’s adult animation slate. I was lucky enough to sit down with the creators, producers, and voice actors of the best shows the world has to offer. Hulu has been offering a wide arrange of incredible animation and doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon with testing out many new things like holiday specials and more.
First up is Koala Man! This show doesn’t premiere until early next year on Hulu. I was lucky enough to chat with some of the people who make it happen. I can’t say much but the first episode is an absolute riot and I cannot WAIT till you all see it. The first interview is with the creator Michael Cusack and actress Demi Lardner who discuss their Australian experience and wrestling Hugh Jackman. The second interview is with co-showrunners with recent co-host Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit who discuss superhero tropes and The Simpsons effect on animation.
The second interview is with two of the minds behind the Hulu Halloween special The Paloni Show. This hour long special is available now to stream. It’s absolutely hilarious but is one of the strangest and horrifically bold pieces of animation in a long time. It strives to push the limits of comedy and horror into the absurd. It’s a must watch. I spoke with Ben Bayouth and Zach Hadel who both worked on the show. Zach co-created the show Smiling Friends with Michael Cusack for Adult Swim as well.
Our final interview is with multiple time guest Mike McMahan and executive producer Danielle Uhlarik to talk about one of my favorite shows Solar Opposites on Hulu. We get the chance to talk about the last season, Hulu itself, and the strength of Disney’s legal teams. It's public news now but Mike revealed they have been picked up for season 5 during our interview as well!
