U.S. audiences will finally meet Marathon Media’s CG-animated series Monster Buster Club when it premieres this Monday (June 9) at 7 p.m. on Toon Disney’s Jetix block. With an estimated budget of $21 million, the show is a France-Canada co-production between Marathon Media, TF1, Jetix Europe, and Canada’s YTV.
Targeting six to 11-year-olds, the 52-episode half-hour toon centers on a top-secret group of four young adventurers led by Cathy (a good alien with stretchy arms), who unmask monstrous intruders from outer space which threaten their hometown of Singletown. The series has already been sold to Super RTL in Germany, RTVE Spain, Slovenia’s RTV, Ireland’s RTE, LNK in Lithuania, Denmark’s TV in Europe, to Radio Canada, and to the Arabic network MBC. The series was created by Marathon Media’s Vincent Chalvon-Demersay and David Michel, who also collaborated on Totally Spies and Martin Mystery.
Toon Disney is also featuring the Monster Buster Club characters in upcoming PSAs. Kids can also interact with related online content and watch 3D videos on www.monsterbusterclub.tv.
