“In terms of the order of the shows, right now, our show goes last,” said Smith. Right now it’s M.O.D.O.K., then Hit-Monkey, then Dazzler & Tigra, then Howard the Duck. My partner on that show is the brilliant Dave Willis who created Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He’s the sensibility that you want to go along with Howard.

10 Animated Movies That Are Made For Parents Not Kids
