DRAWN TOGETHER (eight episodes) - This is the true story of eight characters, picked to live in a house to find out what happens when people stop being real and start getting animated. Presented as if it were a real Primetime reality series, "Drawn Together" answers the question of what happens when eight completely different cartoon characters from various genres and styles live together and have their lives filmed for the entire world to see. Captures the daily adventures of eight mismatched cartoon characters using the dramatic storytelling conventions of established reality television shows. The housemates include: "Captain Hero," a not so moral do-gooder reminiscent of the Saturday morning TV super heroes of the 70's; "Clara," a 20 year old sweet and naive fairy-tale princess; "Toot," a black and white pudgy heart throb from the 20's; "Foxxy Love," a sexy mystery solving musician; "Spanky Ham," a foul-mouthed Internet download pig; "Ling-Ling," an adorable Asian trading card ...Written by
The eight toon "participants" are parodies of famous cartoon figures Spanky Ham is a downloaded internet cartoon as mentioned in a previous episode (Newgrounds.com). Captain Hero is like Superman (DC Comics). Ling-Ling is like Pikachu from Pokémon (Nintendo Games). Xandir is like Link from The Legend of Zelda (Nintendo Games). Princess Clara is like various heroines from animated feature films (Walt Disney). Toot Braunstein is like Betty Boop (Max Fleischer, Paramount). Foxxy Love is like Valerie Brown from Josie and the Pussycats (Hanna-Barbera). Wooldoor Sockbat is like SpongeBob SquarePants (Nickelodeon Network). Guest toon Bucky Bucks is a combination of Donald Trump and Richie Rich (Harvey Comics). See more »

I spent a great month with Foxxy, Wooldoor, Ling-Ling, Xandir, Captain Hero, Toot, Spanky Ham and Clara
I like animation and I really wanted to check this out. And I enjoyed Drawn Together. It was funny and surprisingly clever. It's pretty much South Park on steroids - it's more crueler and ruder. First I'm gonna list what I liked about the show.
1)I like how they've mixed different types of animation.
2)There wasn't a single episode that I hated. Sure, not all were excellent but those episodes were still entertaining to watch.
3)For the most part the characters are likable.
4)Great use of gross humor.
5)Funny plots. For example in one of the episodes Princess Clara tries to become great strip dancer, so her father could say to her that he loves her.
6)The voice acting is good.
7)The best episode of the show is A Very Special Drawn Together After School Special and it's so excellent.
8)The best character in the show for me were Foxxy, Ling-Ling and Wooldoor and Toot.
9)The humor overall is great.
10)Good references to another media like Star Wars and Grease.
There are other things I liked about Drawn Together but let's see what I didn't liked about the show.
1)Some jokes were too ''long'' - in one of the episodes almost a minute is spent watching Spanky Ham farting.
2)In some episodes Captain Hero's ego was too much for me.
3)Some moments were just too much for me.
4)I didn't liked the change in Princess Clara's personality.
5)Season 3 dropped the ball a bit. My least favourite of the 3. Still a solid season.
Overall I enjoyed my month in the Drawn Together house. The show had lots of excellent and very good episodes. The best season in my opinion was season 2. I haven't seen the movie, though I saw plenty of negative reviews from the fans of the show. Maybe the show was canceled for good, considering season 3 was the least good in the series, though, again, it was a solid season. From BAD 1 to EXCELLENT 6 I give the show VERY GOOD 5, which is, well, a very good thing about the show.
