No longer classified information, Nicktoons Network, Nickelodeon's 24-hour animation network, reveals 13 original half-hour episodes of The Secret Show, it was announced today by Keith Dawkins, Vice President and General Manager of Nicktoons Network. The new series, which is packed with covert missions, layers of secrecy and original storylines, will premiere Saturday, January 20 at 8:30 p.m. (ET). The series will air regularly Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. (ET) on Nicktoons Network.
Commissioned by the BBC and produced by Collingwood O'Hare Entertainment, The Secret Show is a fast-paced, animated secret agent series about secret people doing secret things. Best described as Get Smart meets Monty Python in retro-styled animation, it's a show within a show masked behind a fictional onscreen series, 'The Fluffy Bunny Show'. Special agents Victor Volt and Anita Knight work for U.Z.Z protecting the world against the evil forces of T.H.E.M. Victor and Anita manage to save the world, once or sometimes even twice a week with the help of their boss whose name is literally changed daily and his technical egghead Professor Professor. Not only do they work for a secret organization, but the show itself is full of secrets.
"We love to super-serve our viewers with diverse styles of animation, themes and characters and The Secret Show is a great addition to our line-up," said Dawkins. "The show feels fresh. Everything from the fictional 'Fluffy Bunny Show' to the super secret agents makes us laugh out loud. We think our audience will find the show's mix of wit, humor and retro style animation as exciting as we do."
In the first part of the premiere episode, "The Secret Thing," the Impostors, creatures capable of replicating humans as "hard copy holograms," try to steal The Secret Thing. Victor and Anita must protect The Secret Thing at all costs. But what is The Secret Thing? And how can Victor tell the difference between the real Anita and the villainous Impostor?
The second part of the premiere episode, "Who Stole Switzerland," follows Martian gravity thieves who are sucking up the Earth's gravity into trucks and flying it off to planet Mars so they can have 'falling down parties.' Entire countries are floating around, weightless. Mars, however, is becoming so gravitational that all the Earth's countries are slowly being sucked towards it on a collision course. Victor and Anita must get the Earth's gravity back before the two planets collide.
