Super Dinosaur stomps onto Teletoon


Teletoon has launched Super Dinosaur, the CG-animated adaptation of Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard’s all-ages comic-book series of the same name. Produced by Spin Master Entertainment with animation by Atomic Cartoons, the series debuted in Canada last weekend. New episodes air every Saturday and Sunday at 3PM ET.

Leaping from the pages of the comic book series by Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard, Super Dinosaur focuses on Derek Dynamo and his best‐friend Super Dinosaur, a genetically engineered Tyrannosaurus Rex with human‐level intelligence and an aptitude for awesome combat gear. The two best friends go on action‐oriented secret missions for EARTHCORE, an international organization devoted to protecting the planet from monsters and villains.

Image Comics published 23 issues of Super Dinosaur between 2011 and 2014. The concept for the series was originally conceived after artist Jason Howard sketched a super hero-looking Tyrannosaurus Rex for his young son. Kirkman then thought about a Rex controlling larger robotic arms with its tiny ones. From there, a new book was born aimed at both kids and their parents.

The animated Super Dinosaur contains 26 x 22-minute episodes. Kylie Ellis is the show’s producer, with Kevin Burke and Chris Doc Wyatt acting as both executive producers and head writers. Kirkman and Howard were both involved throughout the creative process, offering up plenty of ways to expand on the story in the comics. The show utilizes a letterbox 3D effect to emphasize action sequences and cutesy 2D sequences to amp up the comedy. Valin Shinyei stars as Derek Dynamo, with Deven Mack voicing the titular rex. Their nemesis, Max Maximus, is brought to live by Marco Soriano.

The series was first announced last December. International broadcast partners have yet to be revealed.
