The Goode Family, the much-anticipated, but poorly reviewed latest creation of Mike Judge survived 13 episodes on ABC before being canceled late this summer. The animated comedy revolved around a family obsessed with doing the “right” thing environmentally, politically and socially. Unfortunately, viewers weren’t really interested — with drooping numbers as the series progressed. Said one critic, “The first line of dialogue in ABC’s new animated series is, “Look who’s got elephant dung!” That pretty much sums up the show.”
Still, even though the series has been canceled, the creators aren’t yet ready to give up on a possible second season. After receiving the dire news, co-creators John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky wrote to fans saying they were searching for a new network and time slot. “A lot of people have asked how they can see episodes they missed and we will try and find an answer,” they said. “This show has been the…most creatively satisfying thing we have ever done and we look forward to continuing it. Thanks as always.”
Rumored hosts include Comedy Central of Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim slot. What do you think? Would you be interested in spending another season with the Goode Family?
