Passing on some information I received this week about a brand new Nickolodeon cartoon series that debuts tonight. Since we cut the cord on our cable and are living life without commercials I’m so out of the loop! I’d never know about these things if it weren’t for email. “Monsuno” premieres tonight and you can learn more about the new series at the Nicktoons website. It looks like something my son would enjoy and could possibly fill the viewing void until the next season of his favorite show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Here is the information I received about “Monsuno”:
Millions of years ago, “Monsuno,” a living DNA, hitched a ride to Earth in a concentrated asteroid pocket. When it landed on Earth, the impact drove the dinosaurs into extinction. The “Monsuno” DNA lay dormant until a scientist named Jeredy Suno activated it, sending a rippling wave of movement back into action. By doing so, Jeredy may have reignited the end of the world but he also created its salvation, the “Monsuno” monsters. Now, it’s up to his son Chase to learn the secrets of “Monsuno” and help save the world from impending destruction. In the 52-episode series, the fate of the world lies in the hands of a group of heroic kids who wrestle with the power to command and battle creatures called “Monsuno.” Following the premiere, “Monsuno” will air in its regular timeslot on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. (ET) on Nicktoons. “Monsuno” will also air on Nickelodeon channels around the world starting in the Summer of 2012.
