Lizzo and Tone Loc guest star in the latest episode of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, now streaming on Disney+.
In the exclusive featurette below, creator/executive producer Bruce W. Smith and executive producer Ralph Farquhar talk about what fans can expect from the new episode. Oscar Proud (Tommy Davidson) wants Penny’s (Kyla Pratt) help promoting his new theme park, SnackLand. But his idea to use Penny’s friends (and former girl group partners) as one of the park’s performing acts, everyone’s shocked to hear Penny’s singing voice now sounds much different than it used to (enter Tone Loc, who guest stars as Penny’s new singing voice). Instead, Oscar is able to book Lizzo (playing herself) to perform, and she imparts some much-needed words of wisdom to Penny.
Along with the guest stars, the episode features a new original song, “Cuter than You,” featuring Tone Loc.
The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder brings fans back into the world of Penny Proud, who is now older and, like other Millennials and Gen Z folks nowadays, is connected to the internet, pop culture, and everything that makes life complicated and interesting today. The series is a massive update from the original, featuring LGBTQ representation with characters voiced by Billy Porter and E.J. Johnson, and commentary on current topics, including Black Lives Matter.
