Plot Synopsis

Based on the short-form web series of the same name that's set at the Tierra Chula Resident Hotel, TARANTULA is a half-hour animated comedy series that centers on Echo Johnson, a respected but uncertified tattoo artist. Echo's poetic ramblings tell tales of misadventures with the other residents as they partake in party crashing, dumpster diving and other socially dubious acts of mischief. TARANTULA had its official debut on Monday, December 4, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT, as TBS debuted back-to-back new episodes. Early the same day, TBS made the entire 10-episode first season available for binge-viewing on the TBS app, on, and On-Demand. Plus, one day earlier -- on Sunday, December 3 -- TBS released the first two episodes on its YouTube channel.
On Monday, December 25, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT, TBS premiered the season finale of TARANTULA, debuting back-to-back new episodes:

"Shabzinzo" (10pm): When Echo is wronged by a wealthy fool, he is sent a very fancy gift that instantly proves itself a burden, and sends him on a journey to rid himself of it.

"Pig Head" (10:30pm): Echo reckons with his past.
