"Drawn Together" - The 3D comedy

First of all, the 3D here doesn’t mean 3 Dimension of CG graphics. Instead it stands for Disturbing, Disgusting and Dirty comedy. Compared to South Park and Family Guy, this comedy has the worst dirty jokes, racism critics and parody of most of the cartoons….

Main Characters:

Captain Hero (voiced by Jess Harnell) - A chauvinistic, perverted and lecherous parody of Superman (and other superheroes), with a visual style taken from the cartoons of Bruce Timm and Max Fleischer. Among reality TV archetypes, he represents the macho egotist.

Foxxy Love (voiced by Cree Summer) - A sharp-tongued parody of Valerie Brown from Josie and the Pussycats, she is a promiscuous mystery-solving musician. She represents the sassy black woman.

Ling-Ling (voiced by Abbey McBride) - A homicidal spoof of Pikachu from the Pokémon franchise, who battles using various supernatural powers/abilities (reminiscent of anime) and speaks in pseudo-Japanese gibberish (or ‘Japorean’, as Ling-Ling’s voice Abbey McBride calls it) with English subtitles. He represents the culture shocked foreigner.

Princess Clara (voiced by Tara Strong) - A pampered, hyper-religious, and racist princess who is a parody of Disney princesses like Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She represents the naive daddy’s girl.

Spanky Ham (voiced by Adam Carolla) - A sex-obsessed, obnoxious parody of Internet Flash cartoon characters. He represents the crude party animal.

Toot Braunstein (voiced by Tara Strong) - An overweight sex symbol from the 1920s who demands to be the center of attention, cuts herself with razor blades when depressed, and often instigates conflict in the house. Based on Betty Boop. She represents the bitch.

Wooldoor Sockbat (voiced by James Arnold Taylor)- A bizarre children’s show character in the mold of SpongeBob SquarePants or Stimpy who displays many of the typical reality-defying behaviors of Looney Tunes characters. He represents the attention-starved weirdo.

Xandir P. Wifflebottom (voiced by Jack Plotnick) - A homosexual parody of video game heroes like Link from the The Legend of Zelda series. He represents the token gay participant.

Disclaimer: Parental Advisory required. Audience must be 21 years and above. If you turned gay for watching these videos, i’m not responsible.
