Dead End: Paranormal Park, Netflix’s newest animated feature released thanks to the Dead End cast, is a must-see during Pride Month and beyond as it’s a dynamic and cheerful adventure animation that happens to be unapologetically LGBTQ, following in the lines of programs like Steven Universe, Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and Owl House.
Dead End: Paranormal Park follows a charming bunch of friends as they traverse the mysteries and creatures discovered within a theme park devoted to fictitious diva Pauline Phoenix in its 10-episode 1st season. The show is directed by Liz Whitaker, and in the show, Phoenix looks like a polite reference to the great, the legend, the one-and-only Dolly Parton, with enormous blonde hair, drag queen-style proportions, and a glitzy-while-gaudy design sense. Want to learn who voices this character in the Dead End cast?
Following in the footsteps of Gravity Falls, Dead End: Paranormal Park focused on youthful heroes who are charmed rather than terrified by the strange turmoil around them, but sure, it’s a place where sweat-caked mascot outfits come to life as zombies and your next shift may land you on a Missing Person poster, however, the park also provides a caring and accepting environment for this group of outcasts voiced by the Dead End cast.
