Canada’s TELETOON will tease audiences with sneak peeks at new fall shows every Sunday at 7 p.m. during the month of August. Highlights include the Aug. 7 world premiere of Carl 2, the Aug. 14 debut of Delilah & Julius and the Aug. 29 premiere of Gerald McBoing Boing, a new series based on the classic Dr. Seuss tale and the 1951 Oscar-winning UPA toon short produced by John Hubley.
The TELETOON original production Carl 2 follows the adventures of 14-year old Carl Crashman, a slacker who accidentally orders his own clone online using a fingerprint, a yearbook photo and a scabby band-aid. His life is turned upside-down when six weeks later he receives an enormous wooden crate containing his exact duplicate, a clone known as C2.
Delilah & Julius, another TELETOON original production, focuses on two youngsters who reside at The Academy, a school and training ground for young spies. Julius, whose parents were killed on an undercover mission, channels his energy into fighting the forces of evil while Delilah, a staunch idealist, balances the team with a positive attitude and a back-up plan.
Gerald McBoing Boing is the story of Gerald McCloy, six-year-old boy who communicates with cartoon sound effects rather than words. Together with his parents and best friends Jacob and Janine, Gerald has adventures filled with non-stop gags as he helps people see the world in a new light. The show will air Monday through Friday at 3 p.m.
TELETOON will also host the Canadian premieres of The Life & Times of Juniper Lee (Aug. 21) and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy (Aug. 28), as well as new episodes of Duck Dodgers, What’s New Scooby-Doo?, Codename Kids Next Door and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends starting Aug. 29 at 4 p.m.
