For one week, iTunes users will have the opportunity to get a free copy of a new episode of COMEDY CENTRAL's hit series "Drawn Together," the first original animated reality series.

The "iTunes Episode Premiere" of "Drawn Together," features Captain Hero mourning the death of his never-before-seen sidekick, Captain Girl. Wooldoor vies for the open position and, in a bizarre twist, discovers that Captain Girl never really existed, thus securing the role for Wooldoor. Meanwhile, Toot is more miserable than ever and thinks having a baby will solve all her problems. The gang brings Toot a Nicaraguan baby to teach her how to be more responsible, but her inept parenting leads to the baby shop lifting, getting tattoos and, ultimately, having a baby itself.
