Fox is doubling down on its animated programming with a new series fromBob's Burgerscreator and executive producer Loren Bouchard titled The Great North.

The series follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, which consists of a single dad, Beef, and his "weird bunch of kids." Frankly, when your dad's name is literally Beef, is there any other way for you to turn out than weird? The only other character mentioned in the show's short synopsis is Beef's daughter, Judy, whose artistic dreams do not include the family fishing boat, but rather the glamorous world of the local mall.
