Start your television and rev up your excitement this fall, because a comical cast of canine friends is bringing high-octane fun to qubo this October the world television premiere of TURBO DOGS. This new innovative 3-D CG animated series debuts on qubo's broadcast blocks on NBC, ION Television and Telemundo on Friday, October 3 and Saturday, October 4 and follows the hilarious antics of Racerville, a wacky dog-filled community that's wild about racing.
TURBO DOGS features colorful canine characters who take children on an accelerated adventure filled with comedic high jinks, and fast racing action. TURBO DOGS will also air Sundays on qubo Channel.
Racerville is a world filled with dogs of all different shapes, sizes, temperaments and pedigrees -- a lot like the human world. Only a paw-ful of Racertown's dogs are Turbo Dogs: Dash, the selfless, enthusiastic competitor; GT, the natural-born mechanic who can build an engine from a leash, a collar and empty dog food cans; Mags, the less-than-girlie poodle; Strut, the dashound who always tries taking shortcuts that backfire; Stinkbert (aka "Stinky"), the dog who spends as much time rolling around at the garbage dump as he does with friends; and Clutch, the good guy with a penchant for klutziness.
The rest of the community holds down "normal" jobs. There's a Highway Patrol Dog, a TV Announcer Dog, a Concession stand Dog, avid Fandogs, and even a Master Mechanic Pit Crew Dog, to name a few. What brings this canine-based community together faster than a turbo-charged engine is their shared passion for motor sports. While TURBO DOGS features captivating storylines and non-stop fun -- its emphasis on friendship, fair play, and teamwork, will help kids zoom away with some valuable 'rules of the road.'
