Netflix’s new r-rated adult cartoon make 'South Park' look tame
Netflix has released the first trailer for a new adult animated series: Midnight Gospel.
A quick look at the trailer proves… confusing at best. The story appears to revolve around a cartoon chicken (with the body of a man) named Clancy, who seeks to interview the most interesting creatures in the galaxy for his podcast (and make a boatload of money).
Describing his goal in the trailer, Clancy admints, “there are beautiful wondrous worlds full of intelligent beings with stories to tell.”
“And I am going to interview them, put my interviews online, and make a bunch of money so suck my d***.”
The show was created by Pendleton Ward, who was previously responsible for Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, and podcaster Duncan Trussell.
Midnight Gospel seems to have a very real Rick and Morty vibe coming off it, including intra-dimensional travel, weird beings, aliens, life, death, and everything in between.
The show will premiere in its entirety on Netflix on April 20, 2020. And no, this is not one for the kids.
