On October 10, 2007, Fox announced an animated version of the show is in development.[1]

Of the main cast, Lizzy Caplan and Dylan Baker have been signed on to reprise their roles. Kellie Waymire died in 2003, and Allison Janney has been cast in her role. The part of Petey will be played by Andy Milonakis.[2]

On July 24, 2008 it was announced that the animated series had been taken out of production after a pilot had failed to impress Fox executives.
