‘Blark and Son’ puppet series heads to Comedy Central YouTube channel

Stoopid Buddy Stoodios’s live-action puppet comedy, Blark & Son, is now exclusively available on the recently launched Comedy Central Originals YouTube channel.

Created by Ben Bayouth and developed by head writer Adam Aseraf, Blark & Son is produced by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (Robot Chicken), founded by Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Matthew Senreich and Eric Towner with exec producers Adam Aseraf, Green, Harvatine, Senreich, Towner and Chris Waters.

“Comedy Central has a long history of championing original voices in comedy which makes us proud to be a launch partner for the new Comedy Central Originals channel. The response to Blark & Son has been amazing and we’re already cooking up ideas for the second season,” said Stoopid Buddy Stoodios head of animation development Waters.

Blark & Son originally debuted as self-contained 30-second episodes on Instagram, is based on the hilarious relationship between a cantankerous father and his unamused, awkward tween son. Blark (played by Bayouth), is the gruff, yet clueless devoted single father of son, his 12-year old gamer-obsessed, troll-in-the-making boy (Christopher Mintz-Plasse; How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World).

Deborah Baker Jr. (Stan Against Evil), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Justin Roiland (Rick & Morty), Jim Rash (Community) and Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille) round out the cast.
