Bless Rusty's sweet heart. He's finally got himself a nice little girlfriend, Tammi, who loves him for who he is, despite his being, well, a squid with severe acne. Watch their teenage love blossom in the next episode of Squidbillies, "Keeping It in the Family Way," airing Sunday, Oct. 9 at 11:45 p.m. (et/pt) on Adult Swim.
Of course, love is not without its hitches, and the biggest thorn in Rusty's side is his Dad, Early. Early thinks he has Rusty's best interests in mind, which usually means he'll beat him up, shoot him, juice him and exploit him. This time, he butts right into Rusty's relationship, looking to marry him off AND steal his woman at the same time. How is that possible? Well, these are hillbilly squids we're talking about.
Now when this episode starts, you'll notice the theme song has a special twang this week. That's because country music singer-songwriter and Sirius XM host of Apron Strings Elizabeth Cook is covering the tune. Her signature dulcet voice and perfect country harmonies come through as Early enjoys his chaw in a broke down truck.
Elizabeth Cook also guest stars as the sweet, understanding Tammi. She adores Rusty and resists Early's advances, but she can't escape her breeding, and her mama ends up being the reason the romance must end.
Squidbillies returns with an all-new episode this Sunday, October 9, only on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
