Plot Synopsis

THE GREAT NORTH is a half-hour animated comedy series that follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, as a single dad, Beef does his best to keep his bunch of kids close -- especially his only daughter, Judy, whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall. Rounding out the family are Judy's older brother, Wolf; his fiance, Honeybee; Judy's middle brother, Ham; and ten-year-old-going-on-fifty little brother, Moon. While the children's mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, Alyson, and her imaginary friend, Alanis Morissette (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.
