Jimmy Fallon welcomed a guest that has been missing since 2004 on “Late Night” last night when Jon Heder appeared in character as Napoleon Dynamite.

Not so coincidentally, “Napoleon Dynamite,” the animated series is also set to debut on Fox on Sunday next week with the entire original cast back to voice the characters. The original movie scored with audiences as an indie comedy about a high school student’s adventures in his small town.

The non-cartoon version of Dynamite spoke with Fallon about the nationality of his name, his desire to join the army and help the miners on Pandora, as well as what he got for Christmas, entering manhood and how to hunt for Woolly Mammoths. Watch the return of Napoleon Dynamite in the clips below.
