The new animated comedy series "Disney's Dave the Barbarian", featuring the animation debut of METALLICA's James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, is scheduled to premiere Friday, January 23 at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel.
Produced by Walt Disney Television Animation, the series follows the title character's hilarious escapades with his offbeat family — including his primping older sister Candy and his fierce-yet-tiny younger sister Fang — as they protect themselves and their kingdom from a world of uproariously odd foes. Complicating matters is brawny Dave's non-barbarian demeanor — he prefers the finer things in life, like origami and gourmet cooking. But with a combination of Dave's brute strength, his sisters, his diminutive pet dragon Faffy, his magical nagging sword Lula, and the kids' guardian, a curmudgeonly sorcerer named Uncle Oswidge, villains don't stand a chance.
"Disney's Dave the Barbarian" premieres Friday with a five-episode mini-marathon beginning at 5:30 p.m. The series airs regularly on weekends with episodic premieres on Fridays.
James and Lars will appear in a single episode as rogue teenage dragons. Other guest voices include Joan and Melissa Rivers.
