The Pitts revived as a cartoon
Do you remember the Fox sitcom The Pitts? Of course not and why should you? The show premiered in 2003 and aired for only a couple of weeks before joining Drexell's Class, Costello and Freakylinks in that great big network in the sky.
The series, which starred Dylan Baker (Curt Conners from the Spider Man films) was about a family who had a continual run of bad luck. The series was as funny as the premise, which is exactly why it was cancelled.
Well, four years later, Fox has decided to revive the series in animated form. According to creators Mike Scully and Julie Thacker-Scully they have always wanted to revive the show. "It will be a new show to America, because so few people saw it outside of our immediate family," Scully said. "It's a show we've always been very fond of."
The Scullys also added that the show was easy to transform into a cartoon since it was so close to one already. Scully described the series as a Halloween episode of The Simpsons but every week. Clearly he forgot to add the words, "without the comedy."
No word has been said on voice casting but it's a sure bet that the original cast won't return to their roles since Dylan Baker has better things to do and Kellie Waymire (who played Liz Pitt) died shortly after the show was cancelled at the young age of 36. Personally, if given the choice between starring on a show like The Pitts and dying young, I would choose the latter.
