Here comes Screw-On Head!

Here’s a new TV series I’m actually looking forward to seeing! The SciFi Channel will soon launch an animated series called The Amazing Screw-On Head. It’s from Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy, and features the voices of Paul Giamatti, David Hyde Pierce, and Molly Shannon. The SciFi Channel website describes it this way:

“In this hilarious send-up of Lovecraftian horror and steampunk adventure, President Abraham Lincoln’s top spy is a bodyless head known only as Screw-On Head.

“When arch-fiend Emperor Zombie steals an artifact that will enable him to threaten all life on Earth, the task of stopping him is assigned to Screw-On Head. Fortunately, Screw-On Head is not alone on this perilous quest. He is aided by his multitalented manservant, Mr. Groin, and by his talking canine cohort, Mr. Dog.”

You can see the entire pilot episode at the website link above.

Update: For those of you who suffer with painfully slow (i.e., dial-up) Internet connections, SciFi Channel will broadcast the pilot episode on July 27. Check your listings.
