Plot Synopsis

Created and executive-produced by Gabrielle Allan, Jennifer Crittenden and Clea DuVall, HOUSEBROKEN is a half-hour animated comedy series that follows a group of neighborhood pets and stray animals as they work through their issues inside and outside their therapy group. The series takes an irreverent look at human behavior, but told through the filter of an offbeat group of neighborhood pets. Throughout the series, the show centers on the pets' dysfunctional relationships and their skewed world view, while exploring relevant societal issues in fun and unique ways.

Honey, a standard poodle, opens her living room for the group to come and support each other through the misery, mayhem and majesty that is being a pet. Honey also struggles with her own problems, such as her arranged (by her human) marriage with Chief, a sloppy St. Bernard who enjoys eating socks and licking himself. The group includes Shel, a sex-positive tortoise with intimacy issues and a knack for choosing unconventional partners; Tabitha, an aging Persian cat beauty queen, trying to adjust to life off the cat show circuit; The Gray One, a street smart cat who lives with about thirty other cats and has his one eye on Tabitha; Chico, a chonky, co-dependent and very naive cat; and the group's newest member, Diablo, an anxious, sweater-wearing terrier whose OCD causes him to hump everything twice. Among the group's other members are Elsa, a power hungry, know-it-all Corgi, and fake service dog, who drives Honey crazy; Nibbles, a psychopathic hamster who is mourning the loss of her mate (whose face she ate...and everyone knows it); Max, George Clooney's pig, a former actor and current status obsessed a-hole; Bubbles, a horny, teenage goldfish who lives with Honey and Chief, and heckles the animals any chance she gets; Tchotchke, a silent, and possibly magical, slow loris with a mysterious past, who uses a tiny cocktail umbrella to express his emotions; and Jill, Honey and Chief's human owner.
On Monday, August 30, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT, FOX premiered "Who's a Bad Girl? (Part 2)," the season finale of HOUSEBROKEN. Honey has a wild night out with Coyote, but in the light of day, she has a change of heart, leading to Chief having an adventure of his own. Soon, both Honey and Chief are in mortal danger, and it's up to the group to save them. Guest Voice Cast: Bresha Webb as Nibbles/Big Cookie's Human Mom; Great Lee as Bubbles; Maria Bamford as Jill/Darla/Small Fun Raccoon; Brian Tyree Henry as Armando; Timothy C.
