is <!-- Please don't change "is" to "was". Even if the show no longer produces new material, it does not mean the show no longer exists. --> an American animated television series
, which ran on Comedy Central
from October 27, 2004 to November 14, 2007. The series was created by Dave Jeser
and Matt Silverstein
, and uses a sitcom
format with a TV reality show setting. Like that of The Surreal Life,
the show's eight characters are a combination of personalities that were recognizable and familiar prior to the series. Drawn Together
, however, uses cartoon parodies of stock characters
. In addition, their character traits parody personality types that are typically seen in reality TV shows.
The characters agreed to live in a house together in a setup similar to that of The Real World
. Comedy Central advertised it as the first animated reality show
, and in some episodes, characters participate in challenges that are similar to reality TV challenges.
After three seasons the show was canceled but still maintains a cult following. Subsequently, The Movie!
was released on April 20, 2010.
