Dwight Howard will be a cartoon character once again. 

Thankfully, this isn't to say he will reprise his ridiculous role as Orlando Magic villain which was as close to a caricature as one can get. 

This is a far happier story. 

The new LA Lakers' center will reprise his role on the Disney XD's "Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil," as reported by the LA Times

If you left cartoons back in the early Saturday mornings of your youth, let me get you up to speed. Kick Buttowski is a cartoon that follows the adventures of a young boy whose aspirations linger on being a world-class daredevil. 

This boy, Kick, wants nothing more than to be like his idol, Rock Callahan, voiced by Dwight Howard. 

The new episode featuring the voice of Howard will air on Saturday, September 22, at 11 a.m. Eastern and Pacific. You can hear the magnificence that is Superman's voice acting here.

Yahoo Sports reminds us this is the second appearance for Howard on the cartoon show—the initial time coming in the first episode of the second season, when Howard was still with the Magic. 

This time around, Howard's character of Rock Callahan will be tasked with taking down a character by the name of The Dark One—a sinister foe voiced by "Around the Horns" Tony Reali. 

As you can see, the Saturday will feature quite the sports-heavy cameos. Even LaMarr Woodley of the Pittsburgh Steelers will be getting some love from South Park

I may just have to catch an episode of what looks to be a rather interesting episode. Something tells me ratings may suffer in the Orlando area though.
