Tigtone is an animated television series created for Adult Swim, an American cable channel for mature audiences, by Andrew Koehler and Benjamin Martian. The show premiered on January 13, 2019, and ran for two seasons until August 9, 2020. The series features a mix of humor, action, and fantasy elements, and it is particularly known for its unique animation style inspired by video game visuals.

The show follows the adventures of its titular character, Tigtone, a quest-obsessed hero who is always looking for the next challenge. Tigtone, voiced by Nika Futterman, is a muscular and confident warrior whose arrogance often leads him into trouble. His loyal sidekick, Helpy, voiced by Debi Derryberry, is a magical floating orb with a sense of humor. Together, they undertake various quests to defeat monsters, rescue princesses, and collect treasure.

One of the unique features of Tigtone is its animation style, which was created using a technique known as stop-motion puppetry. The show is animated using paper cutouts that are moved frame by frame to create a sense of movement. This technique gives the show a distinct visual style that sets it apart from other animated series. The aesthetic is reminiscent of classic video games with its bold colors and sharp lines.

The show's humor is often absurd and satirical, poking fun at fantasy tropes and video game cliches. Tigtone's dialogue is filled with outrageous boasts and one-liners, often drawing attention to the ridiculousness of his own behavior. This humor appeals to both younger and older audiences, as it combines childish humor with more adult themes and language.

One unique aspect of the show is its use of famous guest stars for various roles. For instance, Blake Anderson from Workaholics voices Tigtone's archenemy, Lord Festus, while Trace Beaulieu from Mystery Science Theater 3000 voices a recurring character called the CHD (Chronicler of Histories and Deeds). Other guest appearances include Neko Case, Reggie Watts, and Tig Notaro.

The show's writers also use a variety of storytelling techniques to keep the narrative fresh and engaging. One example is the use of non-linear narratives that jump back and forth in time. Another technique is the use of meta-narratives that break the fourth wall and acknowledge the show's status as a work of fiction.

Despite its irreverent humor, Tigtone also has a strong heart and a sense of morality. Tigtone is not just blindly seeking adventure and treasure; he genuinely wants to protect people and do good. In many episodes, Tigtone is faced with moral dilemmas and must make difficult choices that challenge his worldview.

Overall, Tigtone is a unique and entertaining addition to Adult Swim's lineup of animated shows. Its distinctive animation style, surreal humor, and imaginative world-building make it a show that is well worth watching for anyone who enjoys fantasy, video games, or just a good laugh.

Tigtone is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (21 episodes). The series first aired on January 14, 2019.
