'Napoleon Dynamite' video clip: Will the indie hit translate into animated hilarity for FOX?



"Napoleon Dynamite" definitely ranks among the top 10 funniest films of the new millennium. If you haven't seen it yet, drop whatever you are doing (not so fast -- just as soon as you finish reading this post) and watch it ASAP. If you've already seen it, surf on over to YouTube and relive the laughs with clips of some of the quirky hits best moments: Rex Kwon Do, Uncle Rico, Liger, etc.

Then, once you've completed either of the above tasks, go ahead and watch the trailer for FOX's upcoming "Napoleon Dynamite," the animated, serialized version coming to TV in January 2012 (Sunday nights at 8:30 p.m. ET, right after "The Simpsons").

Although the original cast is apparently voicing the characters, we're a little concerned that some of that original Napoleon magic is missing. What we see in the clip comes dangerously close to a nerdy "Beavis and Butthead." Still, we're willing to reserve judgment until we see a few full episodes. We want to like it. Really,

Watch and tell us what you think.
