Comedy Central resurrects Ugly Americans with new app, mobile episodes

All of the comedy fans who kept coming here in the past couple of years hoping for Ugly Americans to return have seen their wish granted by Comedy Central.

Over the weekend, the network announced new mini-episodes are available and coming via a new Ugly Americans app.

The animated series, which ran for two seasons on Comedy Central, 31 episodes from 2010-2012, focused on a social worker named Mark who worked to integrate monsters, aliens and more into New York City society. Matt Oberg, Kurt Metzger, Natasha Leggero, Pete Holmes and Larry Murphy were among the voices.

It’s revived not on cable TV but on your phones and tablets via interactive stories on an app via Pocket Gems.

“We had such a blast creating this world and these characters for the TV show,” said the show’s creator, Devin Clark. “It has been a real pleasure revisiting them in this new format. Also, maybe now I won’t have to live in a cardboard box on the street.”
