Dan Harmon's latest animated series, Krapopolis, features an exciting cast of colorful characters all set on the stunning background of Ancient Greece. 

Krapopolis is the latest animated hit for Fox as a part of its popular Animation Domination block that has featured the likes of The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Bob's Burgers over the years while also streaming on the Disney-owned Hulu.

The series premiered on September 24 as Fox Studios Entertainment's first fully-owned animated series.

Harmon described the crux of the series (via Comicbook Resources) as exploring a time where "civilization is an experiment," centering on history's first city and the family trying to hold it together.
