Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja

We've already posted about Kevin Dart and his excellent Yuki7 books and animated shorts 'Looks That Kill' and 'A Kiss From Tokyo' on the Animated Review.

Kevin now has directed the opening title sequence for a Disney commissioned TV series called 'Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja' which is set to premiere on US screens later this month.

The cartoon is set in a town called Norrisville which has been protected by a ninja for 800 years. But what the citizens of Norrisville don't know is that a new ninja is selected every four years. 9th grade teenager, Randy Cunningham, is the next ninja. Randy is bummed, however, that he can't tell anyone. So instead of telling his best friend, Howard, that he's the ninja, he comes to the school for a "meet and greet", not knowing that an evil sorcerer is planning to destroy the ninja!

With the creative input of Jhonen Vasquez (the creator of Nickelodeon's under appreciated 'Invader Zim') as a character designer, this show is shaping up to sound pretty good!

If the show look half a good as this newly released title sequence we're in for a right treat! We're already drooling at the prospect of seeing the first episode.
