We’ve enjoyed our fair share of adult animated shows from “Daria” to “Bob’s Burgers” – but now Netflix has picked up a series so ridiculously wonderful it will forever change the way you look at cartoons. That’s right! We’re talking about the new original comedy “BoJack Horseman” – aka your newest summer obsession.
The “darkly hilarious” series, which stars Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie, will air its series premiere on Friday, August 22. And yeah, it’s safe to say we’ll be binge-watching the heck out of “BoJack Horseman” over the weekend.
The “animated comedy for adults” has a “Family Guy” morphed with “The Regular Show” feel as it tells the story of BoJack’s washed up life 20 years after starring on the beloved ‘90s sitcom “Horsin’ Around."
“’Bojack Horseman’ is about one man (well, horse-man) who peaked too early and must figure out what to do next,” the Netflix synopsis explains.

But it wasn’t until the trailer of “Bojack Horseman” was released did we realize the potential of the upcoming Netflix series. Below are 6 reasons why we can’t stop watching the comedy’s sidesplitting promo video (Warning: Trailer may lead to excessive procrastination at work):
1. “Bojack Horseman” opens up with a scene that takes place at an international airport named after “Air Bud.” Is anyone else craving some vanilla pudding now?
2. A pair of Angry Birds stalk BoJack and question him regarding his lack luster of a bird feeder. “Who’s a bird gotta bl** to get some seed around here?” one of them says.
3. Paul takes on the role -- once again -- of a drugged-out sidekick. Who thinks he’ll channel his inner Jesse Pinkman and utter a few “b*tch”-es?
4. Andrew Garfield makes a cameo – complete with a British accent and a fabulous Pompeii hairstyle.
5. BoJack’s reaction to talking about babies is golden. When his cat/human girlfriend suggests the slightest inclination of wanting a baby BoJack flips the child-donning carriage (which just so happens to be in front of a store named “Lululemming”) and sets a car afire.
6. Last but not least, there’s a hilarious -- and unintentional -- threesome between a horse, a human and BoJack’s scruffy roommate. “This is a very bad idea,” Paul’s character says as BoJack whinnies away. “Oh my god. My arm. You got my arm. I’m in it now. Oh god no. I’m a part of it.”
