Plot Synopsis

Based on the hit film and voiced by the film's original actors, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE follows the misadventures of an awkward high school teenager and his quirky friends in rural Idaho. Napoleon is a 16-year-old boy convinced that he is destined for greatness and blessed with unlimited "sweet abilities" -- ninja moves, drawing ligers and soul dancing. Napoleon's brother, Kip, is an unemployed 32-year-old who lives at home -- but remains convinced he's God's gift to women and would be an amazing catch. Napoleon lives with his Grandma and he hangs out with: Pedro, his best friend, who has recently been elected class president; Deb, who sees the good in Napoleon and dreams of being his wife; his Uncle Rico, who lives out of an orange custom van while dreaming of get-rich-quick schemes and reliving his glory days as a high-school football player; and Rex, a self-proclaimed martial-arts master who runs the local dojo. Season 1 guest voices include Amy Poehler, Jennifer Coolidge, Sam Rockwell and Jemaine Clement.
