Apple’s first original cartoon series, Central Park finally got the official trailer treatment today ahead of its debut on Apple TV+ in May.

Central Park‘s first trailer gives a quick glimpse into the zany musical comedy that follows a family of caretakers that live in New York City’s famous Central Park. A dog-wearing old lady villain comes up with a tyrannical plan to destroy the park in the name of capitalism which unleashes a whole bunch of chaos.

Watch the two-minute trailer here:

Created by Loren Bouchard, who also created Bob’s Burgers, Central Park‘s cast includes Josh Gad, Leslie Odom, Jr., Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Tituss Burgess, Daveed Diggs, and Stanley Tucci. Nora Smith and Josh Gad co-wrote Central Park with Bouchard. The series was originally developed by 20th Century Fox Television with plans to air it on FOX. The studio ultimately passed on it, setting off a bidding war that Apple won.

Apple ordered 26 episodes of the show which will be split into two 13-episode seasons. Season 1 debuts on May 29 on the Apple TV app that can be found on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and some smart TVs.
