A flan-obsessed astronaut named Dave and his new partner, a highly intelligent seedless melon, head to Mars in Black Holes, an irreverent (and mildly NSFW) 3D animated short. Its makers, Noodles Studio, hope to develop the story into an adult animated sitcom via a just-launched Kickstarter.

For that 2001: A Space Odyssey sequence that somehow works Potato Jesus into the background, I say give ’em a whole season.
