Teletoon Order Includes New ‘Inspector Gadget’ Series

Teletoon-150

Teletoon Canada is resurrecting Inspector Gadget.

A new CG version of the beloved series from DHX Media was one of two new series commissioned by the network, with the other being a new series called Pirate Express, from Atomic Cartoons.

Teletoon also renewed Rocket Monkeys and Endangered Species for second seasons, while Total Drama will be back for a sixth season and Johnny Test for a seventh.

Here’s how the network described the series:

Inspector Gadget

Inspector Gadget

Inspector Gadget
DHX Media • 26 x 11 minutes
Premiere Date TBC on TELETOON

MAD Agents, look out! Criminals, beware! Bystanders … take cover! Inspector Gadget is back to battle Dr. Claw with all-new gadgets – and all-new gadget-related chaos. But the lovable, bumbling, accidentally-destructive Inspector is not alone in the fight to take down MAD. His ever trusty police-dog, Brain, is still by his side and he’s getting extra crime-fighting help from his new partner, Inspector-in-training Penny. With MAD more powerful than ever and with the arrival of Dr. Claw’s evil-genius (and totally crush-worthy) nephew, Penny and Brain will need to use every ounce of their training to keep the world safe from Dr. Claw … and Gadget.

Pirate Express

Pirate Express

Pirate Express
Atomic Cartoons Inc. • 52 x 11 minutes
Scheduled for Fall 2014 on TELETOON

Newt, the son of almighty Poseidon, is an adventurous, 12-year-old Atlantean boy. As captain of The Pirate Express, Newt leads a motley crew of unruly pirates on bizarre voyages, much to the chagrin of the original captain, Henri De LaPoutine, who must reluctantly accompany the team on missions despite his demotion. It’s a high stakes game for Newt and his crew, because should the pirates fail, they will be exiled to a ship in a bottle for all eternity.

Rocket Monkeys

Rocket Monkeys

Rocket Monkeys (Season 2)
Breakthrough Entertainment • 13 x 22 minutes
Scheduled for Fall 2014 on TELETOON

When battling rogue black holes, vengeful aliens, criminal masterminds and rifts in the evil dimension, the universe turns to its bravest and brightest to save the day. When those guys are busy, the universe is stuck with the Rocket Monkeys. Inexplicably charged with carrying out all kinds of important missions, brothers Gus and Wally cause more intergalactic calamity than they could ever prevent. Luckily, they have plenty of help from YAY-OK, their dashing and devoted (if slightly outdated) robot. These monkeys may not have the brainpower of the Rocket Chickens or the guts of the Cosmosloths, but they do have a hunger for adventure. And by “adventure” we mostly mean “bananas.”

Endangered Species

Endangered Species

Endangered Species (Season 2)
Nerd Corps Entertainment • 26 x 11 minutes
Scheduled for Fall 2014 on TELETOON

Nestled deep among the tall trees of Happy Meadows Park sits a seemingly run-of-the-mill tree stump. But this stump is far from normal. This stump has three lovable, oddball animal buddies living in it – Pickle the hyper-imaginative bunny, Merl the very particular, overly suspicious, but deeply loyal squirrel and Gull the dim-witted seagull. While they don’t often leave the safety of their home, ridiculous and dangerous things have a tendency of happening to them anyway, often in defiance of the laws of physics or reality. Whether it’s accidentally dismantling the time-space continuum while taking apart a puzzle, or ordering a vacation-in-a-box that turns out to be a full-sized waterpark full of raging rivers and rockslides, every day-to-day happening in the stump becomes a treacherous, over-the-top, squash-and-stretch adventure.

Total Drama

Total Drama Island

Total Drama: Pahkitew Island (Season 6)
Fresh TV • 13 x 22 minutes
Scheduled for Fall 2014 on TELETOON

It’s an all-new season in an all-new location: Pahkitew Island. Given that the Cree word for “explode” is Pahkitew, it’s no wonder that host Chris McLean chose this new island to put a fresh collection of victims – er, contestants – through the most grueling challenges yet. Once again teen freaks, geeks, egos and cowards smash, crash and bash their way through the season with one goal in mind: winning that one million dollar prize. Who will take it home? No one knows until the final episode drops and the pain finally stops.

Johnny Test

Johnny Test

Johnny Test (Season 7)
DHX Media • 13 x 22 minutes (including a 3-part special)
Premiere Date TBC on TELETOON

An action-comedy extravaganza, the Gemini-award-nominated series Johnny Test chronicles the adventures of a fearless 11-year-old boy, his genetically engineered super-dog Dukey and his 13-year-old super-genius scientist sisters Susan and Mary. Using Johnny as their guinea pig, Susan and Mary strive to solve the trials and tribulations of adolescent angst with out-of-this-world scientific experiments.
