This sounds awesome. The comic is old as fark, but stoner humor is timeless and you couldn't ask for a better cast.

My sister used to let me stay at her place in the summer when she went to UC Santa Cruz in the late 60's/ early 70's. Every house she lived in (always with roommates) had freak brothers comics and the latest Rolling Stone magazine on the coffee table. Water beds and reel to reel tape decks were also popular back then.

Definitely my favorite comic books. A high school teacher in Montana introduced me to Fat Freddy's Cat comics and I've collected them ever since. Hard to find now that Ripoff Press is kaput. I've never heard of WTG Enterprises or how they came about owning the IP. And as far as I know Gilbert Shelton is still alive and living in France.

/ Where he is certainly pleased they sell beer at McDonald's.

Don't get me wrong. John Goodman is one of my favorite actors in both dramatic and comedic roles. I just think John C Reilly would have been a better pick.

Fat Freddy's cat was usually a hoot.

So either it will be completely dated stoner humor, or they'll "modernize" it and miss the point.

There's a non-zero chance that this character will be voice by Jason Mantzoukas.

John Peter Woody could be the name of a serial killer.

Okay, this is getting out of hand. I can cope with non-white actors being cast in traditionally white rolls. And I can (usually) cope with women being cast in traditionally male roles. But did they REALLY have to swap genders on Fat Freddy's Cat?

Ok well, there's a youtube vid of it out there, and it looks pretty low budget and shiatty to me.
