Nickelodeon Australia And New Zealand To Premiere Brand-New Episodes Of "Rocket Monkeys" From Monday 20th January 2014

SKY TV, New Zealand's main pay-television operator, is reporting the exciting Nickelodeon International news in the 'Kids and Family' area of their 'Television Highlights' webpage that Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand will be showing brand-new double episodes of the popular Canadian animated comedy series "Rocket Monkeys" everyday at 3:00pm between Monday 20th to Sunday 26th January 2014 as part of "Summer on Nickelodeon"!

"Rocket Monkeys" follows the adventures of two NOSA-trained monkeynauts and their robot sidekick. When battling rogue black holes, vengeful aliens, criminal masterminds, and rifts in the evil dimension, the universe turns to its bravest and brightest to save the day. When those guys are busy, however, the universe is stuck with the Rocket Monkeys. Inexplicably charged with carrying out all kinds of important missions, brothers Gus (Seán Cullen, "Steve Oedekerk") and Wally (Mark Edwards, "Hypermonium") cause more intergalactic calamity than they could ever prevent, discovering alien species in zany, fun-filled adventures. Luckily, they have plenty of help from YAY-OK (David Berni), their dashing and devoted (if slightly outdated) robot, who ensures the duo somehow complete their mission and still have time for some bananas. These monkeys may not have the brainpower of the Rocket Chickens or the guts of the Cosmosloths, but they do have a hunger for adventure. And by "adventure" we mostly mean "bananas". From the icy depths of Brrrr to the horrifying Planet Splishy Splashy, there's nowhere too dangerous or ridiculous for the monkeys to explore... or try not to blow up. Though it's seen better days, the Monkeys' big orange rust bucket of a ship remains remarkably versatile, although neither the optimistic Wally nor the brainy Gus has a clue as to how to pilot their ship. It has everything Gus and Wally could ever need, from a lounge to a laboratory to a command center and even a space monkey arm for those hard-to-reach places. Nominally running the show is GASI, the Galactic Animal Space Institute. Always seeking out the next frontier in galactic exploration, GASI boasts several (at times contentious) animal divisions, from Astro Ducks to Rocket Zebras. "Rocket Monkeys" features a great cast full of hilarious characters.
