Follow the high-larious bad-ventures of ex-veteran-dude and sex-better-than-you Detective Franky New Guinea and his new holier-than-thou partner, the fine-talkin’, line walkin’, crime stalkin’ Detective Reverend Grizzly Night-Bear, as they take down the corrupt new Mayor, Dominic Kincaid – bringin’ peace, love, and god-damned justice to this Baaaad City!
“Bad City is on the edge of falling into the hands of a madman, you dig? A strange and funky new party drug is killing kids left and right and that jive-ass, crooked city councilor Dominic Kincaid is behind it all. After murdering the mayor, Kincaid has his sights set on taking over and running the city his way, the bad way. Thankfully, the one and only superfly Detective Franky New Guinea and his new partner, the truly unruly Detective Reverend Grizzly Night-Bear, are here to make sure that Bad City stays groovy and is run the good way: the Bad way (it’s different from the first bad way, and better). So get ready to boogie, cats, ’cause these cops are outta sight like dy-no-mite and the only thing they love more than sex, drugs, and growing body hair is taking down turkeys like Kincaid who threaten their BAD CITY. “
