Spliced! is about a bunch of genetic recombinants stranded on a desert island, as they try to build a civilization from the ground up. Characters include Entrée, a cow-pig-chicken-tuna-shrimp thing that walks on its udder. There’s also a dolphin/chimp/Jack Russell terrier with three Internet degrees. Yeah, it’s that kind of show.
Spliced! has already debuted on Jetix in Latin America, having first aired anywhere April 20, 2009. Spliced!‘s brief run in the United States was on ION’s digital subchannel qubo, from September 19 to October 24, 2009.
Matt Ferguson directs this show. He’s responsible for Harold Rosenbaum, Chartered Accountant Extreme, a fairly spot-on parody of limited-animation cartoons. Viewers may remember Harold Rosenbaum from YTV’s Funpak (2005)…not that many people have watched Funpak.
Spliced! could very well outstrip every other Canadian show on Teletoon’s pre-watershed schedule, which isn’t hard when it’s flanking Johnny Test, Wayside and Stoked. I’ll admit to liking Jimmy Two Shoes a bit (a bit), but I have a good feeling about Spliced! Here’s a clip parodying The More You Know:
