Cartoon Network Original Squirrel Boy Scheduled for July Debut
Cartoon Network Studios Production Created by Everett Peck
Squirrel Boy, Cartoon Network�s original series about a boy and his screwy squirrel pal, is set to debut in July. Created and executive-produced by Everett Peck, 13 half-hour episodes are being produced at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, Calif.
Squirrel Boy tells the classic tale of a squirrel and his boy. Ten-year-old Andy�s best friend and pet 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. Their hi-jinks make Andy�s dad want to kick the oblivious Rodney out on his furry tail. 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 Richard Horvitz as Rodney J. Squirrel, Pamela S. Adlon as Andy Johnson, Kurtwood Smith (Red in That �70s Show) as Andy�s father and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Leon.
