Goode times for Mike Judge

ABC is venturing into prime-time animation with The Goode Family, a comedy from King of the Hill cocreator Mike Judge.

The network has handed out a 13-episode commitment to Goode, which Judge created with John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky.

Goode revolves around a family obsessed with doing the "right" thing environmentally, politically, or socially. But its efforts often have unintended comedic consequences.

Judge will voice the father and other characters on the series. He also voices two characters on Fox's Hill and voiced most of the characters on the earlier hit animated comedy he created, MTV's Beavis and Butt-head.

Goode marks ABC's first animated series since Clerks, which had a short run in summer 2000.

The project hails from indie production company Media Rights Capital, which has signed an interim agreement with the striking Writers Guild of America, allowing it to use union writers.

I'm all about doing the right thing but a show about a family doing the right thing sounds real boring.

I'm game for this...I like "King of the Hill" (as well as Judge's "Office Space" and "Idiocracy"), plus any new prime-time animation is A-OK with me.

King of the Hill is such a fantastic show, I don't know if he can top it. But he's more than welcome to try.

I like both of his shows to an extent, although this seems a little corny. Nonetheless, i'll give it a chance.

Great News. To bad it's on ABC. Given thier track record when it comes to animated series, we'll be lucky if ABC airs more than 6 of the 13 episode order. Let's not forget Family Dawg, Capitol Criters and The Critic, all axed by ABC before most of the populas even knew they existed.

I enjoyed Beavis & Butt-head back when I was in high-school when it used to come on MTV. King of the Hill is a great show as well. Mike Judge is awesome. You gotta love the Office Space. :) So I'm sure I'll enjoy this.
