AMAZING ADRENALINI BROTHERS! animated series as found a home on all Cartoon Network feeds in Asia and Europe. Cartoon Network US and Latin America have also purchased the original shorts through Bejuba! Ent. and co-production partners Pesky and Studio B Prods.
Based on the webisodes of the same name, AMAZING ADRENALINI BROTHERS! is a 26x30 series (78x7) 2D/Flash animated series aimed at kids 6-12. The series follows the antics of three daredevil brothers who live for action and excitement. Leaving behind their little-known homeland of Rendoosia, where danger is a way of life, the Adrenalinis are on a mission to amaze people with their mind-boggling feats; which are spectacular, but never turn out quite as expected.
The series launched on ITV in the U.K. on Jan. 7, 2006, and is set to launch on YTV in Canada this spring.
The response weve had from kids since its been on air has been phenomenal, adds Peskys David Hodgson, series producer. They all think its a scream, which of course it is, quite literally
a very loud eeeeeeeeee! that shouts fun in any language, including Rendoosian!
The slapstick humor of these bizarre and funny characters in weird and wonderful situations make the ADRENALINIS a great addition to our lineup," says Finn Arnesen, svp original animation and development EMEA and Turner Broadcasting Systems International Development.
Were thrilled that Cartoon Network will be touring the ADRENALINI BROTHERS in four continents, said Tatiana Kober of Bejuba! Ent. A worldwide Cartoon Network sweep is so very exciting. The enthusiasm they have shown for the series makes us feel confident for the future of the series. As episodes start rolling out now, were looking forward to launching the series globally.
These characters are hilarious, says Blair Peters, Partner at Studio B. Were thrilled that the show is being well received on a global level. The series will translate well into other formats outside of TV such as mobile and of course the web. This is a great franchise.
