Robert Kirkman‘s one-man domination of the pop culture landscape continues, with The Walking Dead creator announcing a new children’s adventure series – and no, it’s not “Tiny Toons Walking Dead” (though we readily admit that would be pretty sweet). Skybound/Image comic book series Super Dinosaur from Kirkman and Jason Howard will premiere on Amazon Prime Video beginning October 6 with 13, half-hour episodes.
“Jason Howard and I created Super Dinosaur as something all kids would enjoy as much as our own kids do. In doing so we were able to craft a world as immersive and engaging as the world of The Walking Dead… but for kids! Our partners at Spin Master have helped Skybound prepare this world for a mass-audience and I’m so happy this series has landed at Amazon where I know it will thrive.”
– Robert Kirman
Produced by Spin Master Entertainment and Skybound North/Wind Sun Sky (with a first season originally airing on Teletoon in Canada), Super Dinosaur follows 10-year-old uber-genius Derek Dynamo and his T-Rex best friend Super Dinosaur as they protect the planet against evil.
To coincide/merchandise off of the television series, Skybound and Spin Master are also set to launch a toy line featuring key characters from the Super Dinosaur series this fall – toys that will be available on Amazon in the US and exclusively at Toys ‘R Us in Canada.
“These new sales agreements for China, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, and Israel highlight the global appetite for Spin Master’s action-packed content. We are confident that children all over the globe will find the characters and storylines of Super Dinosaur exciting and hilarious.”
