Son of Zorn

In the American animated/live action sitcom Son of Zorn, he voiced Zorn, a barbarian warrior from the South Pacific fantasy island Zephyria, which he has defended since 1971. He is Alan’s father and Edie’s former spouse. Zorn and his allies defended Zephyria against a variety of perils, including Glombeasts, Lava Monsters, Vampires, and Liberal Media. In Orange County, he takes a job in phone sales with Sanitation Solution. Zorn is a spoof of He-Man.

The anime is set in an alternate world where traditional animated characters coexist with real-life humans. Zorn is a barbarian warrior from the fictitious island of Zephyria who relocates to Orange County, California, to reunite with his ex-wife and teenage son Alangulon, or “Alan” for short.

Zorn and other Zephyria-related characters are animated in the style of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, while the rest of the universe is live-action. The series’ opening title cards are styled after 1980s fantasy cartoons like He-Man and ThunderCats.

Holt also has a plasma screen television and periodically dates an Italian prostitute named Fabrizia.

He has a $7,000 sex doll named Kimi. His first true lover was Jane, but their relationship ended owing to her abusive conduct. Holt is an avid golfer, baseball fan, and film buff, with extensive knowledge of movies and television shows. He likes Red Bull and pound cake, but has never truly loved someone.
