'Napoleon Dynamite' Cartoon Series Coming to Fox

Napoleon DynamiteGet ready for all those obnoxious quotes from 2004 to make a resurgence: Fox has ordered a six-episode cartoon series of the inexplicably popular flick 'Napoleon Dynamite.'

According to the Live Feed, the original cast members -- including star Jon Heder -- will be lending their voices to the cartoon. 'Simpsons' veteran Mike Scully, along with Jared and Jerusha Hess, are writing and executive producing the project.

Fox has also ordered another teen-targeted cartoon, this one from 'Superbad' star Jonah Hill and 'Yes Man' writers Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul.

The series, 'Allen Gregory,' follows the world's most celebrated 7-year-old who must attend elementary school with regular kids. The network has ordered seven episodes of the series.

No, AOL doesn't get it which is not unusual. "Inexplicably popular"? I guess something must be wrong with anything AOL doesn't get or like. I'm so tired of AOL setting itself up as the arbiter of everything. It's inexplicable that AOL survives. Hope I didn't hurt AOL's feelings.
