“Hot in Cleveland” isn’t a show we usually mention on Dread Central, but with an animated episode heading our way next week that includes Joy, Melanie, Victoria, and Elka seeing what life in Cleveland would be like if a zombie apocalypse were to hit the city, well, how could we resist?
Animation studio Titmouse, Inc., create the art for the cartoon versions of the characters played by Jane Leeves, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, and Betty White, respectively, in the episode, entitled “The Animated Episode.” An animated LeBron James also makes an appearance.
“Viewers love that we take their favorite sitcom stars and put them in our original sitcoms so we’re sure they are going to love seeing these characters in an entirely new, animated universe,” Larry W. Jones, TV Land’s president said in a statement previously released by the channel. The below footage debuted at the â€œLegends of TV Landâ€ panel at San Diego Comic-Con this morning moderated by Jones.
In the ep our four leading ladies embark on an around-the-world adventure that starts at Elka’s apartment, which, up to this point, has been a mystery. They (and we) soon find out why. From there the women go on a psychedelic romp through pop culture favorites, including scenes reminiscent of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, “The Walking Dead,” and Frankenstein.
“The Animated Episode” airs Wednesday, July 30, at 10PM ET/PT on TV Land.
