Hulu’s completely unhinged ‘Koala Man’ trailer promises glorious chaos


There’s Marvel and DC superheroes. And then, there’s Koala Man.

Hulu dropped the trailer for its upcoming animated series on Tuesday, and folks: It’s truly, madly, deeply unhinged.

Created by Australian animator and voice of the titular hero Michael Cusack, Koala Man follows the exploits of Kevin, a man determined to wipe out petty crime in his hometown of Dapto. That means rescuing cats from trees, cracking down on people not picking up their dog’s poop, and measuring people’s overgrown lawns. And like it or not, his family’s along for the ride, with Succession‘s Sarah Snook as his wife Vicky and comedian Demi Lardner as their daughter Alison. (Cusack also voices Alison’s twin brother Liam.)

Detective Pikachu writers Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez are at the helm as showrunners, and Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland is executive producing the project, which came about following Cusack’s completely batshit 2018 Rick and Morty parody Bushworld Adventures.

Cusack’s joined by a stellar cast with guest appearances from national treasures of Australia and New Zealand, including Hugh Jackman as Kevin’s boss Big Greg, alongside Jemaine Clement, Rachel House, Hugo Weaving, and Jarrad Wright.

Koala Man is streaming on Hulu from Jan. 9.(opens in a new tab)
