Comedy Central’s latest animated series Freakshow premieres next week. The seven-episode series by David Cross (Arrested Development) is about a band of freakshow performers who double as superheroes, and with those elements in play you can guess how their adventures turn out. Comprised of Siamese Twins, a bearded clam, the World’s Tallest Nebraskan, the Log Cabin Republican, and other oddballs, the group undertakes low-rate missions from the Pentagon like reading the meter in a war-torn country or going after a specific type of nut for the President.

Watch the preview below, then tune in for the show’s premiere on Wednesday, October 4, 2006, on Comedy Central.
