Nickelodeon Gets Breakthrough/Atomic’s Rocket Monkeys


Breakthrough Entertainment and Atomic Cartoons’ Rocket Monkeys will be heading to Nickelodeon worldwide this spring. The 26 x 26 animated show focuses on two astronaut monkey siblings Gus and Wally, who had the unfortunate responsibility to represent earth as they go on hilarious intergalactic adventures throughout the cosmos. While Wally and Gus are well meaning, and clearly more intelligent than your average simian, piloting a rocket ship and exploring the vast reaches of space isn’t exactly the kind of thing you go into blindly, so expect a lot of hilarity to ensue.

If you think “Rocket Monkeys” sounds awesome, how do you think “26 Rocket Monkeys” sounds? Awesomer? That’s what Breakthrough Entertainment is hoping, as they work with Teletoon to bring the brand new animated series to televisions starting fall 2012. The toon is about monkey astronauts, or monkey-nauts, who are quite appropriately shot into outer space, venturing toward strange new worlds via their specially equipped rocket. We first got word of the cartoon about 2 years ago, and we’re happy to see it finally bearing fruit: likely bananas. Space bananas. In any event, we should be receiving more information on the title shortly. In the meantime, check out the teaser trailer for a sneak peek!
