Cartoon Network US' gym partner is a monkey

MUMBAI: US broadcaster Cartoon Network has announced a calendar of new shows with different themes. One amongst these is a new animated series My Gym Partner is a Monkey.

On the show, going to school almost literally becomes a trip to the jungle. Through an administrative mix-up (a typing error changed Lyon to Lion), 12-year-old Adam Lyon becomes the only human student at Charles Darwin Middle School, where the animal inhabitants of the local zoo and aquarium send their kids.

With signs that warn 'Do Not Eat the Other Students' Adam has his hands full just making it through middle school alive. Fortunately, Adam meets Jake Spider Monkey, and the two become fast friends. However, Adam is quick to discover that having a monkey as a best buddy is as crazy as it is fun. The show will debut early next year.

Treading a different path is Tickle U. which debuts in August. The new franchise will focus on developing, nurturing and valuing a childs sense of humour, an essential aspect of a happy, well-adjusted child. The franchises newly developed and acquired series also will be packaged within a distinctive, cohesive on-air environment with a live host. Aimed at kids 2-5, Tickle U will air weekdays from 9-11 am later this year.

The shows host is Marty, an adult with a kids unlimited imagination and big heart. Marty will inspire kids to sing along, play and, most importantly, laugh with him and his characters. Tickle U will be set in Martys cool, bright and slightly askew workshop where he can build and fix anything. Throughout the block, Marty will engage kids with comic skits and activities that will let kids be kids while developing a sense of humour and self-esteem.

Then there is Krypto the Superdog. Kicking off in April the show chronicles the comic canine adventures of Metropolis day-saving super dog from the planet Krypton. Krypto jettisons to Earth after orbiting countless years in space as a test-pilot puppy aboard a malfunctioning rocket ship built by Supermans father. Landing astray on unfamiliar terrain, the fully-grown Krypto swiftly seeks out companionship on Earth and flips over Kevin Whitney, a young boy who also longs for friendship.

Endowed with an amazing array of superhero powers, ranging from heat vision to super strength to flying, Krypto partners with best pal Kevin to fight threats to the safety and well-being of the people and animals of Metropolis. Krypto the Superdog will provide a lead-in to Tickle U.
