HouseBroken is an American adult animated sitcom created by Jennifer Crittenden, Clea DuVall, and Gabrielle Allan that premiered on Fox on May 31, 2021.[1][2] In August 2021, the series was renewed for a second season.[3]

Plot

HouseBroken follows an anthropomorphic therapy dog named Honey, who explores human dysfunctions and neurosis by applying her knowledge of psychiatry through leading a group of other anthropomorphic neighborhood animals in group therapy sessions.[4]

Cast

Main

  • Lisa Kudrow as Honey, a standard poodle who opens her living room for the group to come and support each other. Honey also struggles with her own problems, such as mourning the death of her friend Big Cookie and her arranged (by her human) marriage with Chief.[5]
  • Clea DuVall as Elsa, a power-hungry, know-it-all Corgi and service dog in training — or so she claims — who drives Honey crazy.[5] Her owner is a neglectful and oblivious young woman who only put a service vest on Elsa so that she can get away with or do things that are considered illegal without repercussions.
  • Nat Faxon as Chief, a sloppy and not-too-bright St. Bernard and Honey's mate who enjoys eating socks, playing in mud, and licking himself.[5]
  • Will Forte as Shel, a tortoise with intimacy issues and a shoe fetish. He was initially in a relationship with a single croc he names "Lindsay" and was going to marry it until his mate Darla returns after 15 years.[5][6] In the episode "Who Are You?", it is revealed that Shel lives with other animals but never talks about them to the group due to his narcissism. His youngest owner goes to the same elementary school Nibbles lives at.[7] He then gets into a polyamorous relationship with Darla and Lindsay. In the episode "Who's a Bad Girl? (Part 1)", it is revealed Lindsay belongs to Xavier, Shel's original owner who forgot the shoe when he went to college.
  • Tony Hale as
    • Diablo, an anxious, sweater-wearing mixed-breed Terrier with OCD. He became Big Cookie's replacement in the session group.[5] His owners are divorced and share joint custody of him. However, in "Who Are You?", his owners decide to let him pick his forever home, and he ultimately decides to live with his "father."
    • Max, George Clooney's Berkshire Pig, a former actor and current status obsessed narcissist.[5] He is named after George Clooney's real life pig who died in 2006. This is brought up in the episode "Who Are You?" when Max realizes there was another pig named Max before him and is essentially his replacement.[8] In the episode "Who's a Bad Girl? (Part 1)", he is sent to live with Ray Liotta.
  • Sharon Horgan as Tabitha, an aging Persian cat beauty queen, trying to adjust to life off the cat show circuit.[5] She speaks with a Russian accent. She initially lives with her owners Stelios and Brett and a kitten named Kit-Kat. In the fourth episode, consumed by jealousy at her owners giving more attention to Kit-Kat than they do to her, she runs away from home and starts living at a cat cafe. Tabitha eventually hates it after someone at the cafe tried to catnap her and starts living with The Gray One and other cats in the seventh episode. Tabitha and The Gray One become a couple in the ninth episode. She eventually reunites with her owners in the tenth episode.
  • Jason Mantzoukas as The Gray One, a street-smart cat who lives with about forty or sixty other cats and has a crush on Tabitha who wouldn't give him the time of day.[5] He is missing an eye and riddled with diseases. His owner is an old cat lady and hoarder who never leaves her house. The Gray One and Tabitha become a couple in the ninth episode.
  • Sam Richardson as Chico, a chunky, co-dependent and very naive tabby cat.[5] He considers his owner Kevin to be his best friend though his feelings for him are more than platonic. In the episode "Who's a Good Therapist?", it is revealed that he is pregnant and gave birth to eight kittens during a therapy session which Elsa was in charge of. His kittens were given away for adoption in the episode "Who's Getting Cold Feet?" It also turns out his pregnancy was the result of him mating with a male cat.[9] In the season 1 finale "Who's a Bad Girl? (Part 2)", it is revealed his owner is a flight attendant and Chico actually belonged to Kevin's ex-girlfriend Dana before she abandoned him.
  • Tchotchke, a slow loris who does not speak, but communicates via body language and a cocktail umbrella, which it appears to have an attachment to.

Recurring

  • Maria Bamford as
    • Jill, Honey and Chief's human owner.[5] She works as a therapist.
    • Darla, Shel's mate who returned after she was missing for 15 years.
  • Greta Lee as Bubbles, a horny, teenage goldfish who lives with Honey and Chief. She heckles the other animals.[5] It is revealed in the episode "Who Are You?" that she is not the first Bubbles.
  • Bresha Webb as Nibbles, a psychopathic hamster who is mourning the loss of her mate (whom she killed).[5] She is a classroom pet for a third grade classroom.
  • Brian Tyree Henry as Armando, a wild coyote who Honey has a crush on.
  • Timothy Simons as Raccoon, a wild raccoon that loves the outdoors, and willing to show everyone that they have their wild sides inside.
