Jeff Rosenstock To Write Music For Cartoon Network’s Upcoming Show Craig Of The Creek

In an interview with New York-based music blog – Brooklyn Vegan, punk rock musician Jeff Rosenstock has announced he will be writing music for a brand new show coming soon to Cartoon Network – Craig of the Creek.

In October, last year he has released his third album – entitled “Worry.” and he’s currently on tour but in the new year, he’ll start writing music for the new show and he’s very excited about it too, as he said writing music for a cartoon is a childhood dream come true.

Not much details about Craig of the Creek has been publicly released except for a brief description and an image, the new show is set in a kid utopia of untamed wilderness. Craig, the show’s main character, and his two best friends traverse and venture through this strange land of where tribes of children reign over tree forts and dirt bike ramps. The new show is created by two Steven Universe show writers – Matt Burnett and Ben Levin.

Quote by Jeff Rosenstock from the article:

“Anyway, next year I’m going to be writing the music for a cartoon called Craig of the Creek on Cartoon Network. As you can imagine, I’m excited to write MUSIC FOR A CARTOON THAT IS A CHILDHOOD DREAM COME TRUE but it also feels like closing a chapter of being on the road constantly for two and a half years or so.”

Cartoon Network UK New Show OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes Premieres Monday 9th October

On Monday 9th October at 6.30pm after a new episode of Teen Titans Go!, Cartoon Network UK and Ireland will premiere a brand new show from Cartoon Network Studios – OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes. The show is created by the former supervising director of Steven Universe – Ian Jones-Quartey. OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is an action-comedy cartoon and follows the titular character – a young boy named K.O. who has the aspiration to become the world’s greatest hero. He has a very long journey to “level-up” to greatness, but his optimism gives him the drive and energy he needs. K.O. meets his new friends – Rad and Enid at Gar’s Bodega and Hero Supply and he even gets employed there. Gar’s Bodega is located Lakewood Plaza, a shopping centre that is under constant attack by robots coming from the Boxmore factory from over the street, which is and owned and ran by the show’s main antagonist – Lord Boxman.

K.O. is a very helpful and cheerful kid and would do anything to protect his friends and the plaza, although he hasn’t got the strength to do so yet, he certainly has the determination, courage (and wackiness) to do so. The show is inspired by video games especially beat-em’-ups and RPG’s, also a brand new OK K.O. video game called OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes will be released later this year for PlayStation 4, XBOX One and PC.

Cartoon Network UK has already uploaded some OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes shorts onto their YouTube channel ahead of the show’s UK premiere, click the link below to access the playlist:
