BOSTON (CBS) – When you get the entire Gronkowski family in one room, you get the feeling that an episode of “Looney Tunes” is about to break out.
Now, that really isn’t far from being a reality.
The Gronkowski family is reportedly pitching an animated TV show according to Deadspin.com, who has the video the family’s manager is shopping around.
Titled The Gronks, the show would be a fictional look at the antics of the five Gronkowski brothers (Gordy Jr., Chris, Dan, Glenn, and Rob) and their father Gordy. The video, which contains some adult language and plenty of zubaz pants, doesn’t contain much animation but gives a look into the Gronkowski’s partying ways.
The entire Gronkowski family is expected to be in pitch meetings over the offseason, according to Deadspin.
Rob Gronkowski has made plenty of headlines for his play on the field with the Patriots, catching touchdowns at a record rate when healthy, but his shenanigans off the field have been just as well documented. He created a stir two years ago when he was photographed with adult film star Bibi Jones during the Patriots’ bye week, and caused an even bigger ruckus following the last two Super Bowls. He was videotaped dancing up a storm following the Patriots’ loss to the New York Giants in 2011, a game he played with an ankle injury, and then suplexing one of his brother’s after last year’s game despite having a cast on his broken arm.
Taking all of that into consideration, it’s hard to imagine a cartoon of the whacky family hasn’t been pitched sooner.
