Here's a sneak peek at Fat Guy Stuck In Internet - VIDEO

Fat Guy Stuck In InternetYou have to hand it to a show that really explains its premise in the title. This show could have been called Computer Wars or CyberWorld or Gemberling (the original title of the series when it was on the web), but they decided to just call it Fat Guy Stuck In Internet, which has a blunt, tabloid newspaper-ish quality. And really, wouldn't you watch a show with that title?

You'll get a chance when it premieres on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block this Sunday night (Monday morning) at 12:15am. Or you could watch some clips online starting today. The plot involves the hero, Gemberling, being sucked into the internet after spilling a beer on his computer. Inside, he befriends two others (Bit and Byte) who are trying to escape the evil head of a computer company (Ynapmoclive - read it backwards) who sends a bounty hunter after them. A wizard who sounds like Bill Cosby tells him he has to save Bit and Byte and the internet and deal with the evil Kazaa. It sounds bizarre but looks even more bizarre, like some crazy comic book mixed with special effects of 70s sci-fi shows. That's not an insult, by the way. The look works really well in a show like this.

After the jump, a scene from the show.

Yeah, this aired on Adult Swim's Night of 101 Pilots or something like that. Of the one's that aired I really enjoyed this and the Brendon Small live action pilot for Let's Fish.

Didn't this show start at Channel 101 in NY? I swear I saw it there. Some other great stuff on there website as well, like Mister Glasses, which is my favorite webshow of all time.

In any event, it sounds like it will be a blast.

I used to love Gemberling on Munchies. But I don't get Fuse anymore. I hope having an actual budget doesn't ruin the cheesiness.
