The Great North is an animated sitcom television series from FOX that premiered its first season on January 3, 2021. The show features a star-studded cast including Nick Offerman, Jenny Slate, Will Forte, Dulcé Sloan, Paul Rust, Aparna Nancherla, Megan Mullaly, and Alanis Morissette. The series is created by Bob's Burgers' writers Lizzie Molyneux and Wendy Molyneux and is produced by 20th Television.

The show follows the Alaskan Tobin family, who lives in a remote town in Alaska. The patriarch of the family, Skip Tobin (voiced by Nick Offerman), is a single father who is the owner of the local fishing business. His four children, Judy (voiced by Jenny Slate), the eldest daughter, who is struggling to find her identity, Wolf (voiced by Will Forte), the enthusiastic and lovable middle child, Ham (voiced by Paul Rust), the shy but smart son, and Moon (voiced by Aparna Nancherla), the youngest daughter who is an eccentric and imaginative kid, all have their unique personalities that add to the show's fun factor.

The show depicts the everyday adventures and misadventures of the Tobin family, living in the isolated rural Alaskan area, and trying to keep up with each other. They interact with other characters in the small town they call home, like their friend Honeybee (voiced by Dulcé Sloan), who is an aspiring pilot, and their reclusive neighbor, Beef (voiced by Alanis Morissette), who has a number of secrets under her sleeves, adding up to the excitement of the show.

The heartwarming and charming aspect of the show is the family dynamics of the Tobin family. The family members may have their quirks and differences, but they still stick together through thick and thin, always having each other's backs. The strong family values and bond is a recurring theme throughout the series, adding a wholesome layer to the comedy.

The animation style is reminiscent of Bob's Burgers, which is no surprise since the creators of the show, Lizzie Molyneux and Wendy Molyneux, are both part of the creative team behind the popular animated sitcom on FOX. The animation is simple yet appealing, and the color palette adds to the Alaskan theme, with the use of warm colors like brown, orange, and yellow.

The humor in the show is subtle yet enough to make one chuckle out loud. The characters' quirks and idiosyncrasies, as well as the absurd situations they find themselves in, add to the overall humor of the show. The show sometimes incorporates flashbacks and dream sequences, adding a surrealist tone to the humor.

The show touches on various topics such as gender fluidity, cultural differences, and modern technology, albeit in subtle ways. For instance, the characters' use of modern gadgets like smartphones is mentioned briefly in one of the episodes, but it never becomes a crutch or the main focus of the show. The show's line-up of celebrity guest appearances also adds to its allure, with notable names such as Alanis Morissette and Megan Mullaly making appearances.

Overall, The Great North is a delightful and charming show that is perfect for those looking for a light-hearted comedy with a heart. Its strong family values and humorous approach to Alaska's rural life make it an endearing watch. The show is suitable for all ages, and its star-studded cast is an added bonus.

The Great North is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (65 episodes). The series first aired on January 3, 2021.
