Bill Gets Animated

Netflix is also home to Burr’s animated sitcom, F is for Family. The show is a raunchy homage to the 1970s, a time fondly remembered for its free-range kids and political incorrectness. It stars the voice of Burr as a short-tempered, foul-mouthed Korean war vet who lives in the suburbs with his wife (Laura Dern) and three children.

The cast also includes Justin Long as Frank’s pot-smoking teenage son, as well as David Koechner and Sam Rockwell. Vince Vaughn joined the show as Frank’s new neighbor in the third season.

Burr co-created the series with Michael Price, who is also a writer and executive producer for The Simpsons.

Netflix has released three seasons of F is for Family, with a fourth planned for 2020.

Below are some highlights from season one:
