Cartoon Network Latin America Buys Numb Chucks Season Two Broadcasting Rights

Cartoon Network Latin America have brought the broadcasting rights for season two of 9 Story Media Group’s animated series – Numb Chucks. Season one of Numb Chucks premiered on Cartoon Network Latin America in 2014. Created by Phil LaFrance and Jamie LeClaire, the show is about two dimwitted (but good-natured) woodchucks defending the town of Ding-A-Ling Springs with their so-called kung-fu “skills” after being inspired by a Woodchuck Morris kung-fu video.

The show has aired on Boomerang USA and Cartoon Network Portugal. The show was originally created for Canadian children’s channel YTV and has since aired by various broadcasters worldwide.

From The Sega of America Press Release: Season Two Of SEGA’s Animated TV Series Sonic Boom™ Premieres On Boomerang This November

Team Sonic is speeding back to kick more bot! The eagerly-anticipated second season of the animated series Sonic Boom™, starring the iconic Sonic the Hedgehog™, will premiere on Boomerang Saturday, November 12th at 6 p.m. ET.

Sonic Boom season two (52 x 11-minute episodes) is high-powered and hilarious! Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Sticks take on bizarre cases of mistaken identity, androids from an outlandish land, real live urban legends, a haunted lair, familiar faces (Shadow and more characters from the Sonic game universe), plus epic conflicts with powerful, new foes! Potent crystals, mercurial mecha, slick scuba gear, stylin’ space suits, sharp snow supplies, custom cars, total team spirit, and of course, constant clashes with the offensive Dr. Eggman and his compelling creations fill the coffers of Sonic Boom season two.

Renewal of the hit CG animated TV series continues the momentum of Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th anniversary year. SEGA recently released Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice exclusively for the 3DS Nintendo family of systems. This title stars the Sonic Boom TV series cast, and like the show, Fire & Ice delivers Sonic’s best attributes — speed and humor — to fans in a collaborative, single-player experience. Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice features bonus content that unlocks concept art from season two. Rated ‘E for Everyone,’ Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is available for purchase online and at retail stores.

“Sonic was created as a larger than life, speedy hedgehog bursting with attitude,” said Ivo Gerscovich, SEGA’s Chief Brand Officer and Head of Sonic Pillar. “While he’s predominantly a videogame character, we felt he would transition well into the world of TV animation and film. We’ve been proud of the success of the first season of the show and look forward to a second season of laughs and exciting new adventures.”

The announcement for Sonic Boom season two was one of several highlights from the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party in San Diego on July 22nd at the House of Blues. Season one premiered on Cartoon Network and currently airs on Boomerang. Viewers also are able to stream season one on Hulu. With the second season launch on Boomerang, fans will have even more opportunities to watch their favorite, show-stopping Blue Blur.

Sandrine Nguyen, Executive Producer for Technicolor Animation Productions added, “We are thrilled with the success of Sonic Boom. We’ve now sold in over 100 countries around the world. With the start of season two, fans can expect more adventure, more humor, and we can’t wait to see the fan reaction.”

The Boomerang premieres will replay on Cartoon Network starting Nov. 19. Check your local listings for specific airtimes.

Young Justice Season Three Announced

Young Justice Season Three Announced

Yesterday (08/11/2016), Warner Bros. Animation announced that the action-hero animated show – Young Justice will be getting a third season and the show is officially back in production. Based on the DC Comics comic book series, Young Justice is about a bunch of teenage superhero sidekicks working together in a covert operation group called The Team, which is the youth group of the Justice League. The Justice League is a top-tier group of experienced superhero crime-fighters including Batman and Superman. The Young Justice team includes Nightwing, Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and many more.

Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation mentioned that the show was revived from cancellation because of the demands of the show’s loyal fanbase:

“The affection that fans have had for Young Justice, and their rallying cry for more episodes, has always resonated with us. We are excited to bring the show back for this loyal fanbase and to provide an opportunity for new viewers to discover this excellent series.”

Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman: Doomsday) and Greg Weisman (Star Wars Rebels, Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man) will be reprising their roles as show producers for the new season, the new season will feature “new twists, turns and dangerous new threats”. No premiere date and broadcaster have been announced yet, but Cartoon Network originally aired the first two seasons. However just because Cartoon Network (through Turner) and Warner Bros are part of the same corporation doesn’t mean Cartoon Network have automatic rights over the show. Cartoon Network currently airs DC Comics’ Teen Titans Go! which has been a ratings hit in the United States, the channel will also premiere DC Comics’ latest animated show – Justice League Action this autumn.

Other Warner Bros. Animation Shows Coming Soon

According to Time Warner’s 2nd Quarter Supplemental document which includes an upfront of new and returning shows for the 2016/2017 season, two new Warner Bros. Animation shows are mentioned – Wacky Racers and Dorothy Princess of Oz, according to the list, both shows will air on Cartoon Network.

News about a Wacky Racers reboot surfaced in October last year and the new show is part of Cartoon Network’s 450 half-hour animation deal with Warner Bros. Animation. Dorothy Princess of Oz is certainly more than likely to be based on the all-time classic movie – The Wizard of Oz. No formal announcement from Warner Bros. Animation or Cartoon Network have been made regarding both shows.

Note: In the United States, channels are sometimes identified by their channel abbreviations, in this case: TOON = Cartoon Network, ADSM = Adult Swim, DXD = Disney XD.
