robert smigelThe funny man behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is creating an animated series for Fox. The series is called Animals and it's described as "a parody of suburban life using the animal kingdom." Smigel will write the series with Greg Cohen, writer for King of the Hill and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. It's being produced by Adam Sandler's company, Happy Madison (the two remain close from their days on SNL and Sandler regularly casts Smigel in his movies). Animals is meant to round out Fox's Sunday night animation block, which already includes The Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill, and American Dad. It's about damn time somebody gives him his own series.

Smigel also pens the "TV Funhouse" cartoons for Saturday Night Live... including The Ambiguously Gay Duo and The Ex-Presidents. The Reuters article about the new series doesn't mention whether he'll continue as Triumph or for SNL.
