It's actually kind of surprising this didn't happen sooner. Before now, the closest we came to a GWAR cartoon was a couple of years ago with the pilot for puppet show The Blood Vomits, but now the folks at Funny or Die have finally launched the first episode in an ongoing webseries entitled The Animated Tales of GWAR.

Conceived by animators Myke Chillian and Tommy Meehan, the “GWARtoon” revolves around the band's mission to recover the lost mojo of front-thing Oderus Urungus, and features the voices of Oderus (a.k.a. Dave Brockie) and his band-bros. The premiere episode also guest-stars Funny or Die regular Weird Al Yankovic.

"I hate cartoons,” Oderus said in one of his typically subtle comments to the press. “Cartoons are for kids, and kids are strictly for eating. But I just might have to back up a little and say that this is the greatest cartoon ever, even if I still hate it, just because it's about us.”
