After a false start last year (probably due to the little fact that only a few episodes had been completed) Chop Socky Chooks has finally started airing regularly on Cartoon Network. Actually, it started last month so there have already been a handful of episodes shown. I know the show isn’t likely to win any awards, but if you’re curious you can either tune into CN on Fridays at 9:00pm or Saturday mornings at 8:30am. In fact, if you’re really interested you can catch a marathon of all of the episodes aired so far, this Friday from 7:00pm – 9:30pm. You can also watch full episodes after they’ve aired on the Cartoon Network video website. Just click on “Shows” to the right, and select Chop Socky Chooks from the list. As of this moment they have the first five episodes available for streaming.
The studio that I used to work at, Starz Animation, created roughly a third of the first season. I think it was (and don’t quote me on this) episodes 1-6, 9, 11, and 14 that we created before losing the contract for the show. Myself, I’m really curious to see the episodes that were created by the folks at C.O.R.E. Toons. Say what you will about the show (or, for those who worked on it, the production) but it was my very first professional animation credit so it holds a certain sentimental value for me.
