Breakthrough Entertainment sends Rocket Monkeys to Teletoon

Breakthrough Entertainment sends Rocket Monkeys to Teletoon

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!

We like monkeys. We like rockets. It’s only natural that we would like to see some type of combination of the two, right? Well, 4Kids Entertainment agrees, as the company gets ready to showcase its latest and greatest animated series. The toon follows the adventures of Gus and Wally, a duo of monkeys who are also best friends. The pair travels through space on an adventure of galactic proportions, encountering aliens and experimenting with new technology. There has been bits of footage featured on 4Kids, but now they’re looking to have a permanent home for the Verve Boomstar series. Check out a clip of the show below the break!
