Bursting back into the comedy scene, or rather, being pulled by a ten-gauge bike back onto the comedy scene  after a seven year hiatus are the stars of “Napoleon Dynamite”, this time turned cartoon. The new show on Fox, set to air Jan. 15, features all of the old gang: Aaron Ruell (Kip), Jon Heder (Napoleon), Efren Ramirez (Pedro), and Haylie Duff (Summer). The trailer was surprisingly funny – I seem to remember a nod to gas station chicken. We can only hope that this isn’t the next horrible movie-to-TV adaptation; luckily based on the trailer the show looks like it’s shaping up to carry on the flippin’ sweet legacy it left back in 2004.
