PEN15, the middle-school-set Hulu comedy, manages to pull off a strange casting magic trick with remarkable aplomb. Its creator-stars Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, whom are adult women, play themselves at age 13 among a cast full of actual 13-year-olds — and they blend in perfectly.

The predominantly live-action sketch-comedy show has had a pretty good track record over the years when it comes to animation. Saturday TV Funhouse delivered hilarious one-off animated shorts for the better part of 15 years from 1996 to 2011, occasionally developing ideas good enough to become spinoffs on their own.
