Yes, that is Alanis Morissette as a giant constellation.
I don’t know about you, but with the 1 year anniversary of quarantine fast approaching (* screams into space *) I could use a little pickup, i.e. a brand new show to obsess over! If you would like that too, I would like to introduce you to the Great North.
The new animated series – from the creators of Bob’s Burgers – follows Beef (yep, you heard me), a fisherman and divorced father of three who is raising his family in Alaska. The show features quirky characters, small-town gadgets, and a larger than life imaginary friend made of stars!

Stand-up comedian and Daily Show correspondent Dulcé Sloan plays Honeybee, Wolf’s fiancée. She loves shrek and avocados (same, tbh) and controls life in Alaska. Read our exclusive interview with her here!

Love star Paul Rust speaks to Ham, the second oldest Tobin brother and Judy’s “Alaskan twin”. He has an affinity for baking and continues to remind his family that he’s gay even though he’s been on the go for years.

The comedian Aparna Nancherla plays the youngest Tobin Moon. He wears an adorable bear suit and is – despite being a small child – the bravest member of the family. He’s also the most likely to get into trouble.

My Queen of Will & Grace (and Nick Offerman’s wife) play Alyson, Judy’s boss at the photo shop at the local mall. I ship them and beef for obvious reasons.
And finally Alanis Morissette as an expansive, imaginary version of yourself!

The rocker “You Oughta Know” plays in the form of Judy’s imaginary character, who can be seen in the Aurora Borealis. She’s nonsense and always tries to give it to Judy directly when she seeks advice … though most of the time she’s ignored.
