Swampy to get his own show

Disney.com, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, has confirmed that they are going to release a 12-episode animated “Swampy” show on their website. The webisodes will be 3 to 4 minute each, and will be released on a weekly basis starting with a sneak peek in December, before the official launch in January, 2012.

The game puts players in the shoes of the alligator who hates being dirty and wants nothing but to get clean water to his underground apartment.
