The above trifle, in fact, is not so trivial. Because “Clerks: The Animated Series” has always been owned by Disney, and there seems to be a push when it comes to the studio’s more adult-leaning ticket prices; there’s a reason why it’s considered small news when any R-rated movie makes its way to Disney+ (like “Deadpool” and “Logan” did recently). “Clerks: The Animated Series” wasn’t rated R (it aired on ABC) and didn’t have Smith’s usual tendency to raw dialogue, but it was still considered “raw”. When asked about the show at the panel attended by Ryan Scott/Film, Smith recalled it with fondness, the quirky characters only on the show, and especially how easy it was for he.
“We talk about this all the time.” Because it’s the easiest job any of us have ever had, man. We’ll show up in your pajamas and record your voice. No pay for any voice. The version that we did – that particular iteration with Leonardo Leonardo and Mr. Plug and all that – if we do it, the only way we can – because, strangely, it’s owned by Disney, but Disney would never ‘put it anywhere’ Disney+… That leaves a potential place for it, and that’s Hulu. ”
Hulu, one might recall, was one of the many properties Disney bought in the massive Fox merger from 2017. While Disney+ is usually reserved for Disney’s kid-friendly fare – the features Their animation capabilities, Pixar movies, Star Wars movies and Marvel what can be found there – Hulu takes older deviant content. Sure, Smith is on to something by suggesting Hulu might put some money into a new “Secretary” show. After all, they did it for “Futurama”.
