Teletoon has set June 12 as the Canadian premiere date for the Australian animated comedy series The Day My Butt Went Psycho.
The Day My Butt Went Psycho is based on Scholastic’s best-selling book of the same name, penned by one of Australia’s most popular children’s authors, Andy Griffiths. The book made it to the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists. Sequels include Zombie Butts from Uranus and Butt Wars: The Final Conflict.
The story is set in a world where goth butts and unicorn butts exist and where an ordinary boy named Zack is best buddies with his newly-detached butt, Deuce. Together, Zack and Deuce have a knack for fun adventures as they navigate a world where humans and their butts live side by side.
The first of 20 half-hour episodes in the first season will air starting June 12 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT on Teletoon.
The series will also premiere in French as Mon derrière perd la tête day-and-date on Télétoon in Quebec.
The series is a co-production from Nelvana in Canada and Studio Moshi in Australia, in association with Scholastic. It is directed by Matt Ferguson (Scaredy Squirrel). The show first premiered on Australia’s Nine Network in September 2013.
