MONDO, the creator of hit short-form animated series like Happy Tree Friends and Deep Space 69, unveils an all-new animated series adaptation of Graham Roumieu’s acclaimed memoirs of the most misunderstood mythical creature in the world, BIGFOOT.
The brand-new series will debut Sunday, Sept. 29th, exclusively in the U.S. on MONDO’s channel on VRV, the fan-focused, animation-centric video platform, with additional episodes to premiere weekly. The pilot episode of BIGFOOT will also be on the MONDO YouTube channel one week after its premiere.
BIGFOOT is based on author and illustrator Roumieu’s series of Bigfoot books, including Me Write Book: It Bigfoot Memoir, Bigfoot: I Not Dead and In Me Own Words: The Autobiography of Bigfoot. “So freakin’ funny you’ll be out of breath,” Salon.com wrote about Roumieu’s work, with the San Francisco Chronicle calling it “brilliantly funny,” and People hailing the books as “a quirky, uncategorizable delight.”
The series – which stars comedian K. Trevor Wilson as Bigfoot – follows the exploits of the self-proclaimed “King of the Forest” as he negotiates difficult relationships with the human and animal world, his complicated past, and his ongoing struggles with self-identity. The initial 12 episodes explore Bigfoot’s hopeless romanticism, penchant for violence, questionable hygiene, need for acceptance, squirrel anarchism issues, inadequate communication skills, megalomania and other relatable problems.
