From the co-creator of YO GABBA GABBA comes the quirky comedy/adventure series THE AQUABATS SUPER SHOW!, featuring the alternative rock/ska band The Aquabats. A hybrid of concert footage, live-action skits and animation, the Aquabats battle evil with music and superhero powers unlike any seen before. In a ridiculously fun experience for kids of all ages (including the legions of fans of this popular alternative rock band), the Aquabats embark on a never-ending quest to right wrongs, destroy boredom and seek justice for all. They're the greatest crime-fighting, kids rock band ever assembled! Boasting an outrageous blend of live-action crime-fighting spoofs with a sprinkling of animation segments, THE AQUABATS SUPER SHOW! is produced by FremantleMedia Enterprises and The Magic Store.
An announcement today by FremantleMedia Enterprises and Shout! Factory reveals that they two companies have come to an agreement for a "multi-year alliance" granting Shout! the exclusive distribution rights to the live action/animation program which began airing on The Hub this past March, The Aquabats! Super Show!
Also included in the agreement is the NickToons program Monsuno
, an anime series (note that, with very few exceptions for shows that have crossed over to an extremely mainstream audience, TVShowsOnDVD does not cover anime programs).
The deal covers both the USA and Canada, but no specific titles, timeframe or details have been revealed just yet. The announcement explains, however, that "Shout! Factory plans an aggressive rollout of THE AQUABATS SUPERSHOW! ...on family home entertainment shelves.
" Stay tuned, then, and we'll keep you updated as further developments occur!
