The long awaited digital arm of Fox’s ‘Animation Domination’ brand has launched mere moments ago. And its first offering is a pointed, and at times crass (naturally) commentary on last night’s presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. At the heart of the matter is what many believe is the ever-increasing similarities between the candidates and the meaninglessness of political debates. Check it out and tell us what you think.

Animation Domination High Def (ADHD) is Fox’s new late-night television and online animation property — spearheaded by former Adult Swim producer Nick Weidenfeld. I should also mention that it looks like we were right about this Obama “Fire Sale” animation; it is, indeed, part of ADHD. And they’ve rolled out a few other videos, including what a series titled Hamsters on Rollerskates; a trio of episodes are below.

The site also includes amazingly bizarre GIFs (like this one), which have been created for easy sharing on Twitter, Reddit and Tumblr. The official ADHD television launch date is set for July, so it looks like the site represents a soft launch and actual late-night animation programming on Fox will start in 2013. We’re looking forward to tons of great comedy, keen social commentary and a new breed of hyper absurdity!
