Napoleon Dynamite is a Fox animated series based on Napoleon Dynamite (film) and is overseen by the film's director, Jared Hess and his wife, Jerusha. Fox ordered six episodes and 7 scripts. It aired as a midseason replacement in 2012. The show premiered on January 15, 2012 with a two-episode series premiere aired an hour apart instead of back-to-back, which hurt the ratings. The show had constant breaks during its short six episode run hurting the ratings, but the show still managed to pull in good ratings. On May 13, 2012, FOX officially cancelled the show, despite good ratings.
The complete series was released on DVD on November 4, 2014 by Olive Films. The DVD is selling very well.
