How stoned are you? Rate this in your high-o-meter before watching any of Adult Swim‘s shows; because your rate of enjoying this channel’s freakishly funny shows is directly proportional to this figure. ‘Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell’ is just another example from the platform’s catalog of genuinely comic, absurd shows. A live-action, workplace comedy, it debuted on Cartoon Network’s late night programming block on April 18, 2013. The plot revolves around Gary, a low-level demon employee under his boss Satan, who captures souls from the human world to climb up the corporate ladder in Hell. However, his stupidity, kindness, and lazy attitude often become obstacles in this path toward success.
Created by Casper Kelly and Dave Willis and comprising 10 episodes per season, parts 1, 2, and 3 of the show premiered on Adult Swim in 2013, 2015, and 2016 respectively, while Season 4 premiered on the channel on May 3, 2019.

Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell Plot: What is it about?
In this workplace comedy, the primary focus is on Gary, whose sole ambition is to somehow rise from his low-level position and secure a respected promotion. In order to achieve this, he has to attempt and recruit as many human souls as possible. When frustrated, he often appears unexpectedly in his old apartment on earth to grab a beer or two. In his quest, he is assisted by Claude, who joins him as a freshly recruited intern. However, gradually, Claude is soon transformed from the under-confident newcomer to a sniveling, back-stabbing co-worker. Amidst all this, Gary is constantly tortured by his no-nonsense, forever grumpy, and demanding boss — the Devil aka Satan. Among the other demons, you also get to see Eddie, the tortured soul, whose screams can often be heard in the background as he is being whipped or severely punished.
‘Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell’ is, in fact, a regular workplace comedy, with the only difference being the office set-up and location. The primary concept revolves around the various schemes employed by Gary and Claude in an attempt to trick people into signing their souls for Hell instead of Heaven. In each of its 11-12 minutes episodes, we witness Gary and his peers wearing yellow polo t-shirts with a Hell logo and waking up for their jobs every Monday — which is all the days on the calendar. For their smoke breaks, they climb to the top of a mountain, for an eternally unreachable pack of cigarettes. In their various devious marketing strategies, they make weird plans to attract new clients. For example, once, Claude and Gary try to get a baseball player named Cortez Cruz to kiss a pentagram instead of a crucifix. In another instance, Gary loses his “summon word”, due to which he is forced into the mortal world by a pair of stoners who drag him out of hell. Every incident manages to bring out a good dose of laughter and makes for an entertaining midnight watch.
Just like its previous installments, season 4 of ‘Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell’ follows Gary and his crew as they embark on a venture to capture fresh soul recruits from Las Vegas. This time, they are equipped with an amazing new board game. Heaven also features in the picture, with its employees competing with Gary in deciding the fate of dead mortals. Additionally, there are additionally guest artists who make special appearances, in the likes of John Amos, Joey Fatone, Jon Glaser, and George Wendt. What are their fates this time? It is the same as that of Dustin Diamond who is now doomed to star in a bad sitcom for eternity? Watch the series to find out!
