This Saturday at 10:30am ET, Nickelodeon premieres Sanjay and Craig, a new animated series that shares DNA with Bob’s Burgers, Pete & Pete and Freaks and Geeks — and TVLine has a sneak peek.
Presenting yet another take on the age-old story of a young boy and his talking snake — voiced by Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock) and Chris Hardwick (The Nerdist) — Sanjay and Craig was created by Jay Howell (Bob’s Burgers), Jim Dirschberger and Andreas Trolf, all of whom claim Nick’s popular Adventures of Pete & Pete among their influences. In fact, Pete & Pete producers/veteran animators Chris Viscardi and Will McRobb are among the new show’s EPs.
In this clip from one of the first episodes, Sanjay and Craig, in a quest to find the ultimate laugh, ask their friend Megan (voiced by onetime Freak turned Mad Men minx Linda Cardellini) to judge their respective giggles. Will you be tuning in?
