Canada sure does love its animated spin-offs of live-action series. That’s because on the backs of Corner Gas, Trailer Park Boys, and now LetterKenny.
CraveTV has announced that they will drop six animated short-form episodes of LittleKenny, a brand-new animated spin-off of the popular LetterKenny series on June 28th that will also be available on a number of different platforms.
Created, written, and directed by Jared Keeso, LITTLEKENNY tells the origin story of The Hicks, and how standing up for each other in the schoolyard resulted in their friendship. Featuring the voices of LETTERKENNY stars Nathan Dales as young Daryl; K. Trevor Wilson as young Dan; Keeso as young Wayne; and Canadian actress Kandyse McClure as the voice of Ms. Tricia, these wee-hicks may seem adorable, but as with their original incarnations, their quick wit packs a Texas-sized punch.
LITTLEKENNY will also be available on other Bell Media platforms including:
- SnackableTV (all six episodes drop on June 28)
- On CTV.ca as part of the SnackableTV collection (all six episodes drop on June 28)
- The Crave YouTube channel (sampling)
- TheComedyNetwork.ca (sampling)
- MUCH.com (sampling)
- MTV.ca (sampling)
Additionally, Episodes 1 and 2 will be available as a sneak peek on the Letterkenny Problems YouTube channel on June 27
LITTLEKENNY is produced by New Metric Media in association with Playfun Games and Bell Media, with the participation of Canadian Media Fund, OMDC Tax Credits and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund and distributed by DHX Media with New Metric Media as sales agent. Animation services for LITTLEKENNY were provided by Little Blackstone Inc.
