Mon­suno

Nick­toons launches Mon­suno, a half-hour action-adventure series debut­ing with two back-to-back episodes on Thurs­day, Feb. 23, at 8:00 p.m. In the 52-episode series, the fate of the world lies in the hands of a group of heroic kids who wres­tle with the power to com­mand and bat­tle crea­tures called Monsuno.

Fol­low­ing the pre­miere, Mon­suno will air in its reg­u­lar times­lot on Thurs­days at 8:30 p.m. (ET) on Nick­toons. Mon­suno will also air on Nick­elodeon chan­nels around the world, start­ing Sum­mer 2012.

We’re excited to be the home of Mon­suno in the U.S. and around the world,” said Keith Dawkins, SVP/General Man­ager, Nick­toons and Teen­Nick. “With pow­er­ful, action-driven ani­ma­tion, dynamic char­ac­ters and a deeply woven orig­i­nal story mythol­ogy, this series has strong boy appeal.”

Mil­lions of years ago, Mon­suno, a liv­ing DNA, hitched a ride to Earth in a con­cen­trated aster­oid pocket. When it landed on Earth, the impact drove the dinosaurs into extinc­tion. The Mon­suno DNA lay dor­mant until a sci­en­tist named Jeredy Suno acti­vated it, send­ing a rip­pling wave of move­ment back into action. By doing so, Jeredy may have reignited the end of the world but he also cre­ated its sal­va­tion, the Mon­suno mon­sters. Now, it’s up to his son Chase to learn the secrets of Mon­suno and help save the world from impend­ing destruction.

In the series debut episode, “Clash” (pre­mier­ing Feb. 23 at 8:00 p.m.), Chase and his two best friends learn that Jeredy is miss­ing. Jon Ace and S.T.O.R.M. (Strate­gic Tac­ti­cal Oper­a­tives for Recov­ery of Mon­suno) join Chase at the lab, but it is soon revealed that they are after the fully-loaded Core that Jeredy left behind for his son. Then, in “Courage” (pre­mier­ing Feb. 23 at 8:30 p.m.), Chase dis­cov­ers that his father had cre­ated a Mon­suno called Quick­force, who is being held cap­tive and exper­i­mented on by S.T.O.R.M. Chase leads a brave infil­tra­tion of the S.T.O.R.M. facil­ity in order to save Quickforce.
