Why, God why?! This move makes absolutely no sense. The film was only OK (at best) because of its quirkiness, but I can't see them making an entire series based off of it. It'll make money at first because of a bunch of younger kids, but after a few episodes it'll start to get old very quickly.

Then again Fox isn't known for it's great choices when it comes to animated stuff. They cancel the ones that work and try and stick with ones that don't.
