The last time we saw of a certain moose and squirrel was in 2014’s short film bundled with Mr. Peabody & Sherman on home video. Well, Boris and Natasha had better get ready because Toon Barn has learned that DreamWorks is reviving Rocky and Bullwinkle as a television series. It’ll be animated by DHX Studios Vancouver with writing and early production duties in Los Angeles.
We currently aren’t sure if the series will debut on Netflix or if it’ll head to Universal Kids. Though, if you ask this writer, I’d say Netflix is the likelier of the two. The series tentatively scheduled for sometime in 2018.
The Rocky and Bullwinkle characters debuted in the The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends television series that ran on ABC and NBC between 1959 and 1964. The show follows the titular moose and squirrel as they attempt thwart the schemes of Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. The series and its related segments have inspired multiple feature films, mostly recently with DreamWorks’ Mr. Peabody & Sherman in 2014. That movie later spawned its own television series produced in partnership with DHX for Netflix.
