Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your favorite animated series jumped out of the screen and into your living room? Well, attendees at this year’s San Diego Comic Con didn’t need to look any further than Hulu’s Animayhem activation for that opportunity.

Designed to celebrate the streamer’s vast assortment of adult animation options, this immersive offsite invited guests to enter the second dimension and step into the worlds of beloved series including Family Guy, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Futurama, Archer, American Dad, Solar Opposites, and The Great North.

My experience at Animayhem began with Yumyulack from Solar Opposites shrinking me, which allowed me to snap some photos with a coffee cup and iPod that were now significantly larger than me. Then, it was timefor a group chat with Alanis Borealis from The Great North, who provided wise and thoughtful answers to each question she was asked.

From there, it was onto the hall of infinite Rogers from American Dad, which was my last stop before I entered the large outdoor area where five Hulu shows were being represented. As someone who has always wondered which animated couch is more comfortable, I was thrilled at the opportunity to test out The Simpsons and Family Guy couches. Both were great but I think the winner has to be The Simpsons.

Next up was a quick trip to Bob’s Burgers to help out behind the counter before I visited the Futurama ship and headquarters. With a height of 55 feet, the HQ was incredible to walk through and provided multiple photo ops guaranteed to put a smile on any fan’s face.

And if the experience itself wasn’t enough, all guests were provided with some themed giveaways upon their exit, including Futurama egg pins, a green two-dimensional themed backpack, and a Animayhem poster.

This was definitely one of the best experiences at this year’s SDCC and I look forward to seeing what Hulu brings next year!
