They’re debuting for real Saturday, July 27 in late night, but Fox is slipping in a primetime peek at the new Axe Cop and High School USA! this Sunday, toon-heads. ---

Cable networks have tried (and miserably failed) to replicate Adult Swim, Cartoon Network’s stoners-in-the-night alter-ego, for years—but no one ever thought regular ol’ rabbit-ears TV would attempt it. Makes sense, though, that Adult’s Swim’s major rerun supplier Fox would be the first, and even get it half right. Fox Saturday’s ominously/hilariously titled Animation Domination High Definition (ADHD, get it?) is only a half-hour right now, made up of 15-minute cartoons --  Axe Cop (based on the kiddie-conceptualized series about an overzealous cop with an axe), and High School USA! (based on high school, presumably in the USA). Axe Cop, the lead voiced by Parks & Recreation’s Nick Offerman, nails it—and often beheads it—with the lunatic abandon of the best Adult Swim classics; High School USA! wants to be an “edgy” Archie Comics, but forgot to hire the writers to pull it off. Fortunately, more ADHD shows are coming—until then, you can amuse yourself at ADHDFox.com (also an AdultSwim.com multimedia knockoff in the making).
