Action Dad is Showcase for Kids' counter to traditional family fun

Liz Ramsey and her brother Mick have a seemingly normal life. Well, normal, except that their dad is a super secret action hero. Oh, and also, their mom is a super secret villain! Yes, the beloved married couple of Chuck Ramsey and Angela Ramsey includes a bit of chaos, with the two each working for competing agencies – S.H.H.H.H. (Super Hush Hush High-octane Heroics & Haberdashery) and ARGH. However, despite their opposing view points, they both agree on how important their kids are. Sure, Action Dad features the two shooting at each other with laser blasters and rocket launchers, but, in the end, it’s all for the children! There’s no stopping this family. The toon, from Showcase for Kids, is written by Star Wars: The Clone Wars writer Henry Gilroy, and is produced by Hawaii Film Partners and ToonZone Studios – the folks behind Ape Escape.

ACTION DAD is 26 half-hour animated television episodes filled with comedy, adventure and lots of fun-filled action produced by Hawaii Film Partners and Toonzone Studios. Instead of family get-togethers, the Ramsey’s days are filled with cliffhanging car chases, parachute-free skydiving, bad guys like Barron Von Dash chasing them with an army of ninjoids and tanks with laser blasting soldiers breaking down their door at dinner time. It’s just your average day when your father is ACTION DAD.

“ACTION DAD is breaking some new ground,” says Konnie Kwak, producer and Toonzone Studios President and CEO. “Here you have a mother and father who are caring and loving parents who both take part in the raising of their children, still care about each other — even though they work for competing spy organizations who are out to do each other in. ACTION DAD will be a welcome addition to everyone’s family.”

ACTION DAD is executive produced by Hawaii Film Partners’ Rann Watumull, Gina Watumull, David Jackson and Shauna Shapiro Jackson; Konnie Kwak of Toonzone Studios, and Ira Warren of Animation Development Corporation. The producer is Konnie Kwak. Hawaii Film Partners and Animation Development Corporation financed the animated series that will be distributed internationally by Showcase Entertainment under their agreement with Hawaii Film Partners.
