'Napoleon Dynamite' Series Premiere: Napoleon vs. Kip In 'Thundercone' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The "Napoleon Dynamite" (Sun., 8:30PM on Fox) series premiere welcomed fans back to the wacky world of the Dynamite family. And this time, they're animated.

In an effort to banish his unsightly acne, high school student Napoleon (Jon Heder) turns to a banned skin cream.

However, the side effects mean that he becomes super strong and full of rage, and the formerly mild-mannered 16 year old goes ahead and steals the lovely Misty (Amy Poehler) away from older brother -- and cage-fighting enthusiast -- Kip (Aaron Ruell).

Unfortunately for Napoleon, Kip figures out his secret and turns the tables on him. So the Dynamite siblings end up fighting each other for the hand of Misty ... in a cage, natch.

A surprisingly ripped Kip, face a-blazing, goes all "Thunderdome" on his little brother and shows off some fancy moves, leaving Napoleon to question, "When the heck did you learn to walk on stilts?"

And, seeing Kip all pumped-up leads Misty to change her mind and decide that Kip, not Napoleon, is the one for her.

Follow the new adventures of "Napoleon Dynamite" on Sunday nights, 8.30 p.m. EST on Fox.
