Meet Chris Hardwick, Talking Snake In Nickelodeon’s ‘Sanjay And Craig’

Sanjay & Craig: “Weirdo Watching”

Watch: Sanjay And Craig Clip

The new animated series “Sanjay and Craig” is premiering later this month on Nick, and we’ve got a clip for you featuring stars Chris Hardwick (“Craig”) and Maulik Pancholy (“Sanjay”) as a talking snake and his boy. Or vice versa.

From the official synopsis:

Sanjay and Craig is the story of an adventurous 12-year-old boy named Sanjay (Pancholy) who proves the old adage: there’s nothing you can’t accomplish (or destroy) as long as your best friend is a talking snake Craig (Hardwick). In the wilds of their suburban neighborhood, Sanjay and Craig embark on epic, kid-inspired quests, from perfecting the ultimate bike skid to masquerading as doctors that perform the world’s first butt-transplant. The only thing that stands in their way is their unhinged, snake-phobic neighbor, who is always on the verge of figuring out that Craig can talk.

“Sanjay and Craig” was created by the trio of Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell, and Andreas Trolf and this is their first animated series. Nickelodeon is supporting the show, which premieres May 25, with a new Tumblr which promises to have stuff which will later be accompanied by things. Of if you want to get a little more interactive with it, the browser-based game “Sanjay and Craig: Rad-Awesome Butt Doctors” is now live.

“Sanjay and Craig” premieres Saturday, May 25 at 10:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
