Western Animation: Golan The Insatiable

Golan the Insatiable is an animated series that premiered on Fox's ADHD block on January 11, 2014, and is based on stories written by creator Josh Miller that first appeared on the website Something Awful.

It stars 6-year-old goth girl Dylan Beekler and her best friend, the titular demigod warlord from the Gkruool dimension banished to Earth by a rebellion. Golan is always looking for ways to conquer the town of Oak Grove, Minnesota in addition to returning to Gkruool.

After having 6 11-minute episodes on the ADHD block, Golan is set to have a full-fledged 22-minute episode series on Fox starting May 31st, 2015. You can see the trailer for that here.

This show contains examples of:

  • A Boy and His X: In this case, A Girl and Her Demigod.
  • Affably Evil: Golan is surprisingly fun to hang around, despite being a blood-thirsty warlord demigod. The Beeklers treat him like one of the family.
  • Black Comedy: Oh, does this show ever run on this. Even more so for the new show.
  • Crossing the Burnt Bridge: In "A Pox on Your Pox", thinking she's leaving to live in Golan's homeworld, Dylan confesses to her family that she really does love them and then she has to suffer the embarassment of going back to them after that when the portal doesn't work.
  • Disappeared Dad: Mr. Beekler isn't in the 2015 episodes.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Though Golan appears to have been living on Earth for a while, as nobody seems afraid of him unless he gets really mad.
  • The Fun in Funeral: The episode "Deer Uncle Gerald".
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: That's how Dylan was able to summon Golan.
  • The Hedonist: Golan.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Golan may be a tremendous Jerk Ass, but he does care about Dylan at times (in his own twisted way).
  • Never Learned to Read: Dylan is revealed to be illiterate in "Dylan Crushes Reading". All those spells she cast never worked right because she just followed the pictures. Also, her tutor mentions that his brother killed himself because he was too ashamed of being illiterate, and that his suicide note was a bunch of frowny faces.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Mackenzie B to Dylan in the 2014 episodes. In the 2015 episodes she's a bully and more deserving of what punishment she gets.
  • Suck E. Cheese's: Pepe Roni's.
