Vote for Neko Case's new Adult Swim show

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 5:49 PM


Besides featuring shots of Atlanta in many of their "bumps," and repping the city pretty hard overall, the folks at Adult Swim have provided a solid decade of absurd meta-humor (in cartoon form) for nerds, stoners and misanthropes of all stripes. And now they're getting all democratic: Visitors to this page can vote on which of eight possible pilots gets picked up by the network to air this spring.

Most of the shows fit right in with the established AS canon; not surprising, since many of them boast names from familiar series (Aqua Teen Hunger Force and the uncomfortably funny Wonder Showzen, to name a couple). But fans of stoner humor and indie rock (you know, those most responsible and motivated among us) will be particularly intrigued by "Cheyenne Cinnamon and the Fantabulous Unicorn of Sugar Town Candy Fudge." This weird new show from ATHF creator Dave Willis (aka Meatwad) stars a teen pop princess who rides a unicorn and who is voiced by the effervescent Neko Case, she of the New Pornographers and an illustrious solo career. The show's Atlanta connections don't stop with Willis: it also features frequent visitor mc chris and a T-Pain cameo.

"Cheyenne Cinnamon" has already made it through the first round, and will face three other contenders in the final vote, which will take place on March 1. Go check out all the shows and vote for your favorite, but remember: Neko Case is awesome. Just sayin'.
