The first season of the animated horror-comedy series about humans and non-humans in New York City focuses on social worker Mark Lilly's attempts to help new citizens assimilate into a bizarre world where zombies, demons and assorted sci-fi creatures are the rule rather than the exception. Notable Season 1 guest stars include Bill Hader, as vampire William Dyer; Kristen Wiig, as Lt. Francis Grimes' daughter, Tristen, in a parody of the "Twilight" series; and Jack McBrayer, as a giant ape struggling with OCD. The series is based on a web series by Devin Clark entitled "5-On With Alan Whiter."

Critic Reviews for Ugly Americans: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

But if "Ugly Americans" comes with a message, it is at least equally determined to just be funny, and at that task, it frequently succeeds.

Like the strange fellow whizzing on your briefcase during rush hour, Ugly Americans exhibits signs that it's finding its way, but overall the spectacle of its urban circus is too heady to miss.

Wow. There are barely words to describe how bad the new animated series "Ugly Americans" is.

This might sound like a setup for outsized silliness, but the characters of Ugly Americans are matter-of-fact about the lunacy that surrounds them.

Ugly Americans's interesting setting is just sort of there for the sake of being weird.

"Ugly Americans" is a clever and often funny twist on the notion of Manhattan as the great melting pot.
