Tonight on the SyFy Channel, a special animated, holiday episode of Eureka will air at 8 p.m. Eastern.
According to a July press release from SyFy, it will be a “first-of-its-kind” episode, in which “the quaint town of geniuses will be transformed into animated versions of themselves.” The episode features a stellar lineup of voice talent that includes Edward James Olmos Jim Parsons, Chris Parnell, Matt Frewer and Edward James Olmos
“In the episode ‘Do You See What I See,’ it’s Christmas again in Eureka, and Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) are secretly planning the perfect holiday surprise for their kids,” the release stated. “But something mysterious interferes with the super-photon generator designed to create a faux winter wonderland on Main Street, sending a kaleidoscopic wave of color crashing over Eureka, and leaving the entire town and its inhabitants animated. Adapting to the rules of their animated world, our cartoon heroes encounter talking creatures, anthropomorphized machines, and snowy foes as they race to find a solution before Christmas morning … or face potentially being a cartoon forever.”
Mr. Olmos will voice Rudy, the leader of a pack of sled dogs who befriends Deputy Andy.
