In the world of Happy Wheels, you can just get lost in the general delightfulness of everything. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the local dog is peeing on a fire hydrant, and everything is as if portrayed in a storybook. That is until you land on a giant saw blade and decapitate yourself.
Ah yes, welcome to the wonder that is Happy Wheels, an online game created by Jim Bonacci which has amassed more than 1.2 billion playthroughs and tasks players with trying to make it through side-scrolling obstacle courses with the gore quotient dialed up to 12. The hit game is now getting a new series from Machinima and Bunim/Murray Productions, which will feature nine episodes of the bottled crazy that tends to populate this universe.
The show will feature a number of recurring characters from the game, including Wheelchair Guy, Irresponsible Dad, and Lawnmower Man. You can view the first trailer in the clip above, and we've listed the cast bios down below.
