Ape Escape Cartoon DVD

Ape Escape is a series of cartoon shorts developed by Frederator Studios, Hawaii Film Partners, Project 51 Productions and Showcase Entertainment which aired on Nicktoons in 2009. It is based on Sony Computer Entertainment's Ape Escape video game franchise, with characters and designs based on Ape Escape 2 in particular, and focuses around Specter's attempts to take over the world with his monkey army, while Jimmy, Natalie, and the Professor try their best to stop him.

Synopsis Edit

"Evil monkey-genius Specter is plotting to take over the world by controlling his monkey minions through mind-controlling “pipo helmets”. Luckily for us, there exists twelve-year-old Jimmy, his best friend Natalie, and Natalie’s grandfather, the Professor, who are out to thwart the super villain at all costs. (Of course, it doesn’t hurt our heroes that Specter’s legion of apes is only slightly brighter than a box of bricks.)"

Development Edit

Frederator first announced that they have obtained the cartoon rights to Ape Escape on May 31, 2007. Various talents were brought in to help including Doug TenNapel and Andrew Dickman. The character designs are based on Ape Escape 2, with Jimmy as the protagonist. The animations are primarily animated using Adobe Flash. The shorts were completed in 2008 and were sent to Nicktoons in 2009. The shorts were released on DVD in the United Kingdom by Lions Gate Home Entertainment on February 18, 2013.
