Golan the Insatiable is an American animated television series that originally aired on Fox on November 23, 2013 along with Lucas Bros. Moving Co.; it officially premiered on January 11, 2014. It was created by Josh Miller and developed by Dave Jeser & Matt Silverstein.[2] It is based on stories written by Miller that appeared on the website Something Awful.

Plot[edit]

Golan the Insatiable is a demigod warlord who reigned the dimension of Gkruool with an iron fist before he was banished to Earth by rebel forces. Golan ends up at the home of the Beekler Family in the town of Oak Grove, Minnesota, befriending the family's goth-like daughter Dylan, who becomes his follower as he learns about Earth's customs while causing havoc in Oak Grove as he plots to return to his world.

In the season two reboot of the series, Golan is accidentally summoned to Earth by Dylan. He stays with her after finding out that his acolyte Kruung has overthrown him for control of Gkruool during his absence. Besides learning about Earth's customs and causing havoc in Oak Grove, Golan plans to build up his power so that he can return to Gkruool and take revenge on Kruung.

Characters[edit]

Main characters[edit]

  • Golan the Insatiable (voiced by Josh Miller in Season One, Rob Riggle in Season Two) - Golan the Insatiable is an almighty demigod warlord from Gkrool. In the original shorts, he was banished by Gkruool's rebels and lives with Dylan Beekler. In the 30 minute reboot, Golan was accidentally summoned to Earth by Dylan and later remains with her after finding that Kruung has overthrown him during his disappearance. They both enjoy causing misery to the citizens of the city. In season one, he gets used to Earth's customs. In season two, he plans to take over Oak Grove then Minnesota along with Dylan.
  • Dylan Beekler (voiced by Mary Mack in Season One, Aubrey Plaza in Season Two) - Dylan Beekler is a goth girl who's Golan's new acolyte. She used to get suspended a lot at school. Her mother is Carole Beekler, and her older sister is Alexis Beekler. Despite her hatred to most people in "Winter is Staying," she enjoyed being her mom's favorite and enjoyed spending time with her. Also in "Deer Uncle Gerald," she couldn't go through with stealing the ashes of her Great Uncle Gerald for her and Golan's plan and let his ashes in the river as she wishes.
  • Carole Beekler (voiced by Maria Bamford) - Carole Beekler is Dylan and Alexis' single mother in season two. She was initially extremely terrified of Golan but eventually got used to him. Although she doesn't much approve of Dylan's goth lifestyle she still loves her, although she is seen being with Alexis a lot as well. According to Alexis, she is her mother's favorite child.
  • Richard Beekler (voiced by Matt Silverstein) - Richard Beekler is the husband of Carole Beekler and father of the Beekler children. He doesn't consider Golan as family as much as the others. For some reason, he is not included in the reboot. It is claimed by Carole that Dylan doesn't have a father and implied that he left her at some point. It was also claimed by Alexis that Richard died from contracting "Robot AIDS."
  • Alexis Beekler (voiced by Rachel Butera) - Alexis Beekler is Carole's daughter, Dylan's sister, and Keith's girlfriend. She is very obnoxious and slightly dimwitted. She constantly makes fun of Dylan by calling her names like "Butt Licks" and "Fart Sponge", just as similar as Dylan loves harassing her, it has also been shown that Dylan has lit her on fire numerous times. Despite her intelligence, she figured out Dylan and Golan's plan about winter and was the only one who was able to get her to stop in "Winter is Staying". She enjoys spending time with her mother and always has her back.
  • Keith Knudsen Jr. (voiced by Nick Rutherford) - Keith Knudsen Jr. is Alexis' boyfriend who is the son of Keith Knudsen Sr. According to Golan he is a super cool dude and likes to hang out with him. Like Alexis he is also slightly dimwitted although possibly more dimwitted than Alexis. Alexis is the only one in the Beekler family who tolerates him.
