After a Canadian debut on DHX TV’s Family CHRGD channel, new animated comedy Fangbone!, from Boat Rocker Media-owned Radical Sheep Productions, will make its first American TV appearance July 5 on Disney XD.

The kids program premieres at 12:30 p.m. ET with new episodes airing weekdays through July 15. It follows the adventures of a young barbarian warrior and his new friend Bill on their mission to protect Earth from the villainous Venomous Drool.

Based on a graphic novel series by author Michael Rex, Fangbone! is executive produced by Michelle Melanson Cuperus of Toronto-based Radical Sheep, along with Michael Rex, Simon Racioppa, Richard Elliott and John Leitch.

Racioppa and Elliot developed the series for TV and are also showrunners.

As the show’s distributor, Canada’s DHX Media has sold the series to additional Disney XD channels in Latin America, South East Asia and Taiwan.
