Cartoon Network Announces Start of Production on Squirrel Boy

New Animated Series to Premiere in Summer 2006

Cartoon Network announced today that production has begun on its latest animated series, Squirrel Boy. Created and executive-produced by Everett Peck, 13 half-hour episodes are being produced at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, Calif. The series is scheduled to debut in Summer 2006.

Squirrel Boy tells the classic tale of a squirrel and his boy. Ten year-old Andy�s best friend and pet (in that order) is Rodney, a know-it-all squirrel with a lot of big ideas. These two �partners in crime� lead each other into all sorts of adventures in Andy�s backyard and throughout the neighborhood that makes Andy�s dad want to kick the oblivious Rodney out on his furry butt. Joining them on some of their adventures is Rodney�s best squirrel buddy, Leon, who prefers the call of the wild to Rodney�s life as a kept squirrel.

Veteran voice actors will bring the characters to life, including Tom Kenny (SponegeBob SquarePants) as Leon, Richard Horvitz as Rodney J. Squirrel, Pamela S. Adlon as Andy Johnson and Kurtwood Smith (Red in That �70s Show) as Andy�s father.
