Created by Christian Jacobs, Scott Schultz, and Jason deVilliers, “The Aquabats! Super Show!” premiered in 2012 on the Hub Network and aired for two seasons. Based on the superhero mythology of The Aquabats!, a real comedy rock band which series co-creator and lead singer Jacobs formed in 1994, “The Aquabats! Super Show!” follows the comic adventures of a fictionalized version of the band, a musical group of amateur superheroes, as they haphazardly defend the world from a variety of villains and monsters.
Styled similarly to the campy aesthetics of 1960s and 1970s children’s television and Japanese tokusatsu, “The Aquabats! Super Show!” utilizes various mediums of visual styles and special effects, mixing live-action storylines with cartoon shorts, parody advertisements and musical interludes.
Every episode of “The Aquabats! Super Show!” is also now available for viewing on demand on ShoutFactoryTV.com; Shout! Factory TV’s Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and Android apps; and on various Shout! Factory TV branded channels including Tubi, Amazon Prime Channels, and the Roku Channel.
