Canadian cable outlet Teletoon’s fall lineup includes world premieres of two new Canada-produced series, Dr. Dimensionpants and Chop Chop Ninja, as well as Canadian premieres for the homegrown Total Drama: Pahkitew Island and Cartoon Network’s Clarence.
The channel also will air new episodes of such favorite import series as Adventure Time, which will debut season six Sept. 4 at 6 p.m. ET/PT. Also premiering Sept. 4 are Clarence at 6:15 p.m. ET/PT and Fresh TV’s Total Drama: Pahkitew Island at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT.
The network will kick off its fall launch campaign at Fan Expo Canada, set for Aug. 28-31 in Toronto. Voice actors John DiMaggio (Jake) and Hynden Walch (Princess Bubblegum) will appear at a panel and screening Aug. 30, and will sign autographs afterward. Fans of the series also will have a chance to snap photos in the Ice King’s throne, spin the Peppermint Butler prize wheel and experience much more in the Teletoon booth, located in the south building #1448 on level 800.
Premiering in November, here is how the network describes Dr. Dimensionpants, produced by DHX Media:
Kyle Lipton was a normal, impulsive, 12-year-old kid. But all that changed when an interdimensional portal opened in his backyard and dropped a strange pair of glowing pants in his lap: The Dimensionpants. Kyle put on the pants and was transformed into Dr. Dimensionpants, a cosmic superhero with a pointy moustache and powers over space and time. Thanks to the Dimensionpants, young Kyle now has all the crazy-weird superhero powers he ever wanted… and more responsibility than he can handle! With the help of his talking unicorn mentor Philip, Dr. Dimensionpants must learn to master his powers as he saves the universe from unspeakable horrors on a semi-regular basis, all the while still having to deal with his normal, day-to-day kid issues — homework, girls, and his annoyingly smart 7 year-old sister. (26 x 22 mins.)
And here’s the brief on the 40 x 1.5 min. shorts series Chop Chop Ninja, produced by Sardine Productions and Gamerizon Studio:
In 40 stand-alone short episodes, our lively ninjas use all their resources to complete a challenge in three tries. They leave it all on the floor, yet never succeed in completing even the simplest challenge. These non-verbal, highly cartoony stories allow the audience to see their favorite characters in action and learn (or not) that mistakes are always the best teachers.
Other series returning this fall to Teletoon with new episodes include Annoying Orange, The Amazing World of Gumball, Johnny Test, The Day My Butt Went Psycho, Camp Lakebottom, Legends of Chima, Teen Titans Go!, Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, HULK & the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Beware the Batman, The Tom & Jerry Show, Totally Spies! and Packages From Planet X.
