Glenn Martin, DDS follows the adventures of traveling dentist, Glenn Martin, and his family.
After learning that his favourite childhood park is about to be destroyed, Glenn takes his family — wife Jackie, hormone-addled 13-year-old Conor, power suit-wearing 11-year-old Courtney, Courtney's overachieving assistant Wendy, and Canine, the family dog — on a cross-country road trip to protest the demolition.
Although the protest is ultimately a bust, Glenn and Jackie realise that the trip has brought their family closer together and they decide to keep on traveling.
Along the way, Glenn discovers that hitting the road is more complicated than it sounds, and learns through various run-ins (with mobsters, the Amish and psychotic navigators) that the road often hits back in unexpected and hilarious ways.
Glenn Martin, DDS is the first show to come out of Michael Eisner's production company, Tornante.
The show's unique look of stop-motion animation comes from Eric Fogel, creator of the MTV series Celebrity Death Match; the writing is overseen by Michael Jamin and Sivert Glarum, veterans of such shows as King of the Hill and Just Shoot Me!.
