It’s been 6 years since Triumph The Insult Comic Dog last pooped on SDCC and the Nerds loved it! Before the panel they showed a video that Triumph had done for the Conan O’Brian show with Jack McBrayer.
The panel was hosted by Leonard Maltin whom the crowd showed their love to. He started the panel saying that Triumph and McBrayer are going to have a new show next year (2015) on Adult Swim.
