The Season 2 premiere of THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW! is on June 1 at 1:00 p.m. ET, on HUB Network. I had the opportunity to interview Jason deVilliers, executive producer, director, writer on the show; and Richard Falomir, one of the Aquabats, aka “Ricky Fitness.” Both of these guys are super talented and go back to working with Christian Jacobs, aka “The MC Bat Commander.”

“The Aquabats! Super Show!” is the first show in kids television history to feature a ‘real life’ rock band in totally ‘unreal comedy-action-musical adventures. The series just received its first Daytime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Children’s Series. This is truly a quality work of entertainment that will appeal to kids and adults alike. You may already be a fan of the band. Well, you may already be a fan of the show too! Season 2 just gets better and better.

On Saturday, June 1 at 1:00 p.m. ET, “The Aquabats!

The season’s first episode sets the tone for series on its A game. As Jason describes in this interview, you will see greater special effects, more animation, and an overall awesome production.

You’ll see a whole new world of animation as each character on the show gets his own origin story. For the first episode, it’s Too Many Legs Animation Studios providing an Eaglebones Origin animation. And you can also expect to see more Lil Bats animation from Parker Jacobs and Puny Entertainment.

Also, get ready to enjoy Season 1, which just released on DVD. And, if you’re at San Diego Comic-Con, be sure to see a special Aquabats show while your’e there.

It was definitely a treat to get to chat with both Jason and Richard. Enjoy the interview. Just click the link below:
