Mario Karthas nothing on The Croods: family tree in an exclusive first clip of Season 2who arrives on peacock and Hulu today. Defying the rules set by their strict parents, Eep (Ally Dixon), Guy (Darin Brooks) and Dawn (Kelly Marie Tran) challenge a pack of Punch Monkeys to a cart race with no limits.
Turns out teenagers clearly haven’t changed much since human beings stood up on two legs (we like to think of this scene as a cross between Milner’s drag race and Bob Falfa at the end of american graffiti and the opening scene of 2001: A Space Odyssey).
But, as the old saying goes, “If you give a Punch Monkey a cart race, he’ll want more mayhem to go with it.” The simian visitors have an insatiable appetite for destruction that jeopardizes the farm’s central treehouse. Unwilling to feel the wrath of their cave elders, our first human heroes must find a way to fend off the playful primates.
Watch the clip now:
Kiff Vanden Heuvel (Grug), Amy Landecker (Ugga), AJ Locascio (Thunk), Artemis Pebdani (Gran), Dee Bradley Baker (Sandy), Matthew Waterson (Phil) and Amy Rosoff (Hope) round out the central voice cast. Tran is the only returning actor from the films.
Resuming after the events of The Croods: A New Erathe show is produced by Mark Banker (Come on, Dog. Goes!; The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants) and Todd Grimes (The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants; Star Wars: Detours).
“When we started, we could see a sort of first cut of The Croods: A New Era — which I think went even more into comedy than the first film. At the end, spoilers if you haven’t seen it… At the end, the Croods move in with the Bettermans and it’s such a classic TV comedy about two mismatched families having to live under the same roof. roof,” Banker Recount Comic Resources last September. “It’s the odd couple. And so the challenge is how do you do that in a new and interesting way that’s never been done before. It certainly helps that it’s taking place in a world that’s taking place before all the technology that’s familiar to us and finding ways to use that to raise all the issues that we’re all experiencing in a situation like that, in a way interesting. It’s been a lot of fun.”
The seven episodes of The Croods: family tree Season 2 lands on Peacock and Hulu today, April 5. The official synopsis for the second season is as follows:
“Grug, Eep and Sandy enjoy a Crood-ific dad-daughter day while Thunk, annoyed by the TV window viewing options, creates a bit of real-life drama. Even Gran rocks the boat when ‘she declares it’s time to choose a new Thunder Sisters’ Queen! Meanwhile, pushed to their limits and ready to relax, the parents have embarked on separate sojourns. But with the children in charge, only prehistoric time will tell if the tree house will still be standing.
