It would be premature and irresponsible of me to declare FOX’s forthcoming Axe Copcartoon a ‘perfect,’ but damn your rules, it is! We’ve known for a while now that the titular character will be voiced by the shows exec producer and master carpenter Nick Offerman, but what of the other characters? Well, maybe you should have a seat because over on the official Axe Cop blog they’ve announced the rest of the cast and it reads like the supergroup of cartoon comedy voice talent.
When the show premieres as part of FOX’s ADHD cartoon line-up Offerman will be joined by Chldren’s Hospital alums Ken Marinoand Rob Huebel as Flute Cop and the Grey Diamond respectively, comedian Patton Oswalt as Sockarang and British actor/comedian Peter Serafinowicz will do multiple voices including the villainous Dr. Doo-Doo. Pretty impressive, right? Well we’re only half way through (see why I told you to sit down?) In possibly the greatest casting of a man baby of to date, Baby Man will be voiced Michael Madsen(Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill.) The cast also contains not one but two actors from Breaking Bad; Jonathan Banks (Mike) and Giancarlo Esposito (Gus) and Vincent Kartheiser from TV’s Mad Men caps it all off.
Let’s watch the recently released upfront for the show together now!
If you listen closely you can hear the gentle sobbing of an [adult swim] executive.
Apparently if you are at SDCC this year and attend either the Axe Cop panel or the ADHD one you will get to see the first episode. The rest of us will have to wait till 11pm July 27th on FOX.

NOTHING if SOPA & PIPA aren’t stopped. If these controversial pieces of legislation were to pass you could say goodbye to amusing collections of funny shit on the internet, like Nerdy Bits.
Above: The Joy of Tech illustrate the internet blackout of 2012, happening today in protest of the damaging legislation SOPA and PIPA. And while yes, the blackout could help get you laid, you won’t be able visit many of your favorite sites. Here’s a list of websites currently blacked out in protest. (Laughing Squid)
Don’t know what SOPA , or it’s sibling PIPA, are? Let’s educate! What is SOPA? by Gizmodo gives a great and easy to understand explanation. But so does this animated clip from The Oatmeal, and it involves jet skis and koala/goat love, making it much more amusing.
Do your part to stop SOPA and PIPA. As of now SOPA has been shelved, but it’s not dead, it could rear its ugly head again. PIPA, it’s Senate counterpart is still going strong. Call your senator and tell them you want to keep the internet a cool, hip place where we can laugh at Arnold Schwarzenegger parodies and Skyrim memes until we too take an arrow in the knee.
