Plot Synopsis

"Sit Down Shut Up" is a sitcom that uses animated characters placed against a live-action backdrop to tell stories about the dreams and flaws of the staff at a fishing-town high school. Larry Littlejunk is a frustrated phys ed instructor -- he's the best teacher of the staff, but he's been exiled from the classroom to the gymnasium. Miracle Grohe is the spiritual science teacher and the object of Larry's crush. Sue Sezno is the acting principal who does exactly what her name says -- she says "No!" Stuart Proszakian, the vice principal, is happy-go-lucky -- but only because the staff is secretly dispensing a well-known antidepressant to him. Ennis Offtard is the egotistical English teacher and ladies man who loves himself more than any woman. Willard Deutschebog is the aging German teacher who writes "If I believed in reincarnation, I'd kill myself tonight." Helen Klench is the uptight librarian who's been replaced by Google. Andrew Legustambos is the flamboyant drama teacher. Muhannad Sabeeh Fa'ach Nuabar is the custodian, but everyone thinks he's Hispanic and calls him Happy.
