In 2001, Chris Rock and David Hyde Pierce starred as the voices of "Osmosis 'Ozzy' Jones" and "Drixenol 'Drix' Koldreliff" in the theatrical film Osmosis Jones
. It was a combination of live action and animation, produced by The Farrelly Brothers (There's Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber
). In 2002, The Farrelly Brothers spun the film off into a TV series for The Kids' WB, where it ran for 2 seasons and 26 half-hour episodes. It starred the voices of Phil LaMarr (MADtv, Static Shock
) and Jeff Bennett (Johnny Bravo, Transformers: Animated
) as "Ozzy" and "Drax," respectively.
