Slugterra Premieres on Disney XD!

Looks like we’re on the air! Nerdcorps’ new show “Slugterra” is hitting the network tomorrow. It’s been three months since I started on the show and it’s been a blast. While none of my work will start appearing until episode 13 (or sooner, considering we’re using episode 9 as the pilot), the show is still fun to watch. It’s basically Pokemon, except they ride mecha-beasts and use the cute little critters as ammunition. WHICH IS AWESOME. AND TOTALLY INCONVENIENT. BUT STILL AWESOME. I can’t wait for the toy line to start coming out. It’s going to be a Slugterra Christmas for my family and friends. Nerf guns and slug plushies all around!

Here’s the trailer for the pilot episode:

And here’s the show’s opening sequence. The words to the theme song are very easy to memorize.

Look at those little dudes fly! I wish I had a gun that punched people.

    Awesome, man. Getting worried there were too few shows with living creatures shot out of guns, swell to see slimy yet satisfying action.

    Hurry up and make more episodes and release toys please. Its the best show it could have been a movie cause the storie line and animation is so good but episodes are better cause u get more of your fav caracters. You did an awesome job with this show. Can’t wait for more. Thanks keith and fam.

    Ha ha – thanks! I don’t think any of my episodes have aired yet, but the creative team behind the show are some of the most talented people I’ve ever worked with. My first episode will be the mall cop episode.

    At the moment, we’re slated for a 39-episode run with the possibility of more seasons. We’re hammering out these episodes as fast as we can!

    I’m not sure when the toys are coming out, but I’m really hoping before Christmas. Who wouldn’t want a plush Burpy they can stick on their shoulder?

    You guys should make this into something like skylanders, it would be a huge hit just need to make more slugs to choose from.

    Like making different toy guns that hook to the gaming system via wireless then have tons of slugs to choose from that have different abilities you can only have a aresenal of say 5 slugs this makes it more challanging cause you can only have so many different counters against other slugs. I believe this would be the best selling game yet. Make it for every platform. Including computer.
