Watch Assy McGee
- 2 Seasons
The animated television show Assy McGee's is a spoof of police detective shows and centers around a character named Assy McGee who is essentially a pair of buttocks. McGee and his partner Sanchez fight crime in the made up city of Essex, New Hampshire. The voice of all the main characters in the show is that of Larry Murphy. The original air date of this series was in November of 2006. The series aired on the cable television channel known as Adult Swim. The last air date for this show was in July of 2008. The plot of the show centers around McGee who is fraught with emotional problems and prone to violence. Along with his partner, Detective Sanchez, the two solve crimes that are overly exaggerated. Upon being tasked with a particular crime to solve, McGee will often then engage in activities that seem to have no bearing on the actual crime. By the end of the episode, as a result of violent encounters with individuals who appear irrelevant to the crime that they are tasked with solving, they manage to either catch their intended target or apprehend some other criminal. This show is also characterized by tension between McGee and his police chief, who frequently wants to relieve him of his badge yet still appears to grudgingly respect McGee. Other prominent characters in the showe include Greg, who is often simply referenced as the chief, the mayor, who is portrayed as a corrupt and simple minded individual and Officer DiLorenzo, with whom most people seem to have a problem. Several of the characters in this show bear striking resemblances in their mannerisms to well known personalities. Al Pacino and Sylvester Stallone are a couple of movie personalities whose characters the show appears to draw from. Other characters include a bartender named Glenn, who runs the bar frequented by McGee and a priest, who serves as the Mcgee's source for spiritual advice. Sanchez's wife Brenda also features in the show and is the subject of some speculation regarding her fidelity to her husband. The show even alludes to a relationship that might have occurred between McGee and Brenda. The show ran for 20 episodes during which it garnered advertising support from Scion the car company.
