Full English (2012)
Monday 22nd April 2013
From the producers of Family Guy, The Simpsons and Futurama comes the hilariously funny brand new British animated comedy, Full English, available to own on DVD from 13th May 2013, courtesy of Channel 4 DVD.
The Olympics, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee... 2012 was the year of all things British and we're on a role as 2013 is proving another year to celebrate our great nation. We've got the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation plus something big, also worth a patriotic cheer, the release of Full English, a truly great British animated comedy!
On the surface, Full English is about a quintessentially English family, but at its heart it's a satirical look at our popular culture, our celebrities, our monarchy, our economy and our country today. In the tradition of great British comedy, Full English is unashamedly rude, puerile and silly, while telling hilarious stories around identifiable characters.
Meet the Johnson family - the Dad, Edgar (voiced by Richard Ayoade), his long suffering wife Wendy (voiced by Rosie Caveliero) and their three kids; The unhinged Dusty, middle child Jason (both voiced by Kayvan Novak) and the moody Goth teen Eve (voiced by Daisy Haggard).
Also in the mix is Edgar's father in law and boss the evil and extremely horny Ken (voiced by Ollie Maltman) - a multi-millionaire confectionary mogul who despises him. Last but certainly not least is Ken's only friend, a large green imaginary figment of his imagination called Squidge who makes Ken do very bad things...
This is the first UK animation of its type since the highly successful Stressed Eric. Created, produced and written by brothers Harry & Jack Williams (Two Brothers Pictures), each frame is individually designed and drawn by artist Alex Scarfe to give it realistic depth and ensure the show feels distinctly British. The frames are then animated by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama, The Simpsons Movie and Family Guy).
A must have for every comedy lovers DVD collection, Full English also includes an exclusive unseen episode that has never been shown on TV before!
