Mr. Pickles is one of Adult Swim’s latest mature cartoon to hit Sunday nights with its premiere on September 21, 2014. Mr. Pickles is the Goodman’s family dog, who incidentally likes pickles. But he is no Lassie. And do not expect Scooby Doo or Snoopy either. Behind those puppy dog eyes lie a wicked streak of violence in this seemingly innocent canine. The series revolves around six year old Tommy Goodman and Mr. Pickles as they commute from their home to Old Town, an old-fashioned community being taken over by modern appliances. I had the chance to chat with the talented creators Dave Stewart and Will Carsola about Mr. Pickles.
