METALLICA's HETFIELD And ULRICH To Make Their Animation Debut Tonight

January 23, 2004

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.
