4Kids alumni tease Kung Fu Pork Choppers
The founder of 4Kids Entertainment, Al Kahn is back with his new company CraneKahn and Kung Fu Pork Choppers, a CG-animated production adapted from the long-running Chinese series GG Bond by Winsing Company. The re-versioned show will feature 26 twenty-two minute episodes in season 1 aimed at kids aged 4-8.
To drum up interest in the new show, CraneKahn have released a promotional video showcasing theme song. If you’re an older reader, chances are that the video’s narrator might sound very familiar. They might make you want to be the very best there ever was …
It all starts when Hampton stumbles upon the secret lab of the mysterious Dr. Swinestyn, who recruits the mischievous young pig and his friends to become interstellar agents. Their mission: protect the universe! But they don’t have to do it alone. The pigs are teamed with super-powered pets that transform from the cutest creatures ever into mega-sized fighting machines with ultra-animal attributes. The pets are each controlled by their Kung Fu Pork Chopper™ partner. Together they make the ultimate team that can take on any challenge!
That’s not all-the Choppers also have an arsenal of amazing devices and vehicles that help them take on the wackiest alien invaders ever. They’ll travel through space and time-and even to other dimensions-all in their quest to right wrongs, keep the peace and defeat evil everywhere. Unless, of course, they screw things up even more than they were. Which has been known to happen…maybe a gazillion times.
No broadcast/streaming partners for Kung Fu Pork Choppers have been announced yet. Wicked Cool Toys has signed on as the show’s master toy partner.
GG Bond debuted in 2005 and is seen on more than 150 TV channels and 8 major VOD platforms around China; over 160 million children watch it on CCTV and other major TV channels every year. Ratings show it is consistently in the top 3 animated series for its age group on CCTV, with the total digital/online views exceeding 20 billion.
