Re-Animated tells the story of about a seventh-grader Jimmy Roberts (Dominic Janes, ER) who requires an emergency brain transplant after a collision with a park trolley while visiting the famous Gollyworld theme park. Gollyworld doctors give him the frozen brain of the famous cartoonist Milt Appleday (comedy veteran Fred Willard).

Actors Paul Reubens, Tom Kenny, Ellen Greene and Brian Posehn lend their voices to the Appleday cartoon characters that come to life for Jimmy.
