WHEN “Napoleon Dynamite” JOINS




Animated Stars from The Cleveland Show, THE Simpsons,

Napoleon Dynamite, Family Guy and American Dad

Announce Their 2012 New Year’s Resolutions


Most Americans spend New Year’s Day making promises they can’t keep. So this year we challenge you to spend 2012 hunting wolverines, dancing up a storm and becoming a master at tetherball to celebrate the return of Napoleon Dynamite, one of the most iconic film characters of the last decade. Napoleon Dynamite, the new animated comedy based on the hit movie, joins FOX’s ANIMATION DOMINATION® lineup with a double dose of dynamite episodes Sunday, Jan. 15 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT and 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).


In anticipation of the New Year, the stars of our Sunday night lineup, including an evil talking baby, a cross-dressing alien, a cage-fighting brother, a bumbling, yet devoted dad and a moustache-sporting patriarch share their resolutions:


The Cleveland Show (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT)

Cleveland Brown: “I resolve to remember my wife’s birthday, but forget her age.”


THE Simpsons (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT)

Homer Simpson: “Only eat food I grow myself. Where can I buy seeds for a hot dog tree?”



Napoleon Dynamite: “I don't have a New Year's resolution. You don't need that crap when you're perfect.”

Kip Dynamite: “To try and find somebody who’s interested in buying three megabytes of RAM.”

Pedro: “Come through on my campaign promise of ‘Taco Tuesdays Thru Thursdays.’”

Grandma: “Sew my old sports bras into a quilt for Kip.”

Uncle Rico: “Think up some funny comebacks to, ‘Hey, aren't you the jerk who lost the big game for Preston High in ’82?’ Oh, and to alphabetize my cassette tapes.”

Deb: “Get a boy to hold my hand in a non-séance situation.”

Rex Kwon Do: “To get Human Growth Hormone classified as a condiment.”


Family Guy (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT)

Stewie Griffin: “I know this is kind of vague, but I'd really like to be that guy at parties who just makes weird stuff happen.”


American Dad (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT)

Roger:  “Last year I started an initiative of alphabetical resolutions. Gave up Arson. ‘B’s’ are tougher. Burglary or bread? Burglary or bread? I guess bread. No sense in robbing that bakery if I’m gonna burn it to the ground anyway, right?”


Tune in Sunday, Jan. 8, when ANIMATION DOMINATION® rules with all-new episodes of THE Simpsons (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), The Cleveland Show (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), Family Guy (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and American Dad (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).
