NEW YORK, February 25, 2008 -- George W. may be on the way out but "Lil' Bush" is in for a new season on COMEDY CENTRAL! "Lil' Bush," the animated show that rips the lid off politics and puts the Oval Office in the sandbox, debuts its second season on Thursday, March 13 at 10:30 p.m.*

"Lil' Bush" presents Dubya as the animated future president, along with his cronies Lil' Condi, Lil' Rummy (voiced by Iggy Pop), and Lil' Cheney. Hiding out from Bar and George Sr., these precocious pre-pubescents terrorize the White House and solve the world's problems before bedtime. The second season will bring all-new challenges to the Lil' Gang, including a bigger presence from the other side of the aisle as the Lil' Dems, featuring Lil' Hillary Clinton, Lil' Barack Obama (voiced by Tim Meadows), Lil' Al Gore and Lil' Nancy Pelosi, are joined this season by new characters including Lil' John Edwards and Tiny Dennis Kucinich. Republican reinforcements for the new season include Lil' Rudy Giuliani, Lil' Mitt Romney, Lil' Fred Thompson and the mastermind himself, M.C. Karl Rove (voiced by Kevin Federline).

Featured guest voices for the second season include Kevin Federline, Phil Lesh (Grateful Dead), Fred Schneider and Kate Pierson (The B-52's), Joel and Benji Madden (Good Charlotte) and Joe Escalante.

In the debut episode, "Lesbian Freakfest," the Lil' Gang doesn't want the Lil' Dems to ruin St. Patrick's Day with their liberal and all-inclusive St. Patrick's day parade so they enlist the advice of the revenge-seeking and Hot Pocket-hoarding Lil' Karl Rove who is more than happy to bring down the Lil' Dems and show off the rapping skills of his alter-ego, MC Rove. Future episodes include the Gang taking on big pharmaceutical companies, joining George Sr. on a camping trip to Baghdad, Lil' George and Lil' Vladimir Putin starting a schoolyard rivalry and Lil' George attempting to smoke Osama out of his hole in Afghanistan.

Each week on comedycentral.com, fans will get a sneak preview of every new episode and all their favorite highlights immediately after each new episode premieres. There will also be brand new, never-before-seen exclusive content every week, including interviews with show creator Donick Cary and rock legend Iggy Pop, new animated shorts featuring the whole "Lil' Bush" gang, the Demobratz and much more. The site will also feature a new rockin� rhythm action game where fans can test their skills as they jam along with the "Lil' Bush" band through all their favorite songs from the show.

During the inaugural season viewers got a chance to see Lil' Bush and Tony Blair become cheerleaders, the Lil' Gang unleash weapons of mass destruction and Lil' Bush make a statement with his Aquaman underpants while facing off against Lil' Kim Jong Il. The Gang also went on a panty raid against an Al Qaeda training camp and attempted to speed up global warming. The first season premiered June 13, 2007 and was the most watched premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL since 2004. Across the run of the first season "Lil' Bush" was the number one show in its timeslot (Wednesdays, 10:30-11:00 p.m.) among Men 18-24.

Zoe Friedman is the executive in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL. Animation is done by Sugarshack Animation.
