For the last few weeks, we’ve been teasing you with videos created by the folks at Animation Domination High Def, a multi-armed brand that will launch a Saturday block of late night animation next year on Fox. And today, just in time for Halloween, we get this excellent preview of ADHD’s upcoming show Axe Cop, set to debut this summer. Although he’s not credited (sneaky!), Nick Offerman is most certainly the voice of our hero, an earnest officer forever wielding a fireman’s ax with special powers. And if it’s not Nick Offerman, I’ll send out a detailed apology for making assumptions.
It’s not clear weather Offerman has signed on to voice the entire series, but I can’t imagine it happening any other way. Let’s put it this way: if you were Fox, would you bait your future audience with the power of Offerman (aka Ron Swanson) and then switch to someone else once it bows on television? Not unless you want a nation of nerds bemoaning the loss of Pawnee’s finest. Check out the “test” video below.
The show is based on a comic by the same name, created by five-year-old Malachai Nicolle and written and illustrated by his 30-year-old brother Ethan. Check out the official ADHD site for more info.
