New Animated Sitcom About Vegans on ABC!
Who caught The Goode Family on ABC last night? For those who didn’t see it, The Goode Family is the new animated sitcom from Mike Judge (the genius behind King of the Hill, Beavis and Butt-head, and Office Space). The show centers around a vegan family, and I have to say, I thought it was pretty funny.
The show is about a family (mainly the parents) trying to live an obsessively politically-correct lifestyle. My favorite parts of last night’s episode:
- At one point, the mom declares, “I only shop at stores with a mission statement.” Hah!
- A “Meat is Murder” tee made an appearance.
- The awkward conversation about race between the Goodes and their neighbor.
- The death stares Helen got from fellow shoppers for not using a reusable bag.
Some activists might be offended by some of the humor, but the show is bringing veganism into the mainstream. And sometimes you just have to learn to laugh at yourself, right? What did you guys think of the show?
P.S. I hear next week’s episode is called “Pleatherheads.” Can’t wait!
