The Velvet Mouse Show!

The Velvet Mouse ShowFrom the founders of Retroland comes a brand new transmedia animated series with a refreshing retro feel that promises the return of Saturday morning. Retroland is proud to announce the pilot episode of The Velvet Mouse Show, the first original production from Jetset Studios.

The Velvet Mouse Show begins when teen brothers Shaun and Donny Paradise cross paths with two stranded time-travelers: Star Academy cadet Jupiter James and Luck E. Charm, a bumbling wizard’s apprentice. Brought together literally by accident, the gang decides to start a rock band and go into the mystery-solving business, all while staying one step ahead of their nemesis, the bald Dr. X (and his equally bald cat, Max.) Coordinating their efforts and acting as mentor to the group of teen misfits is a suave and stylish talking rodent named Velvet. Check out the pilot!

We hope you enjoy this psychedelic explosion of pop comedy and rock and roll – all wrapped into an animated series that will make you think you’ve time-traveled back to an era when Saturday morning cartoons reigned supreme.

    It’s been about 12 years since there has been anything decent on television on Saturday mornings, and the choices were getting to be very few even then.

    Watching the first episode of “The Velvet Mouse” instantly reminded me of what it felt like to be a kid in the 80′s and a teen in the 90′s on Saturday mornings.

    You’ve successfully captured the vibe of the elusive Saturday mornings of yesterday, and made it possible to take a step back in time, even if just for a moment.

    This definitely harkens back to the days of Scooby Doo, Josie & The Pussycats and the Amazing Chan & The Chan Clan. The theme has that cool 70s vibe of those shows. Are you planning to actually make more eps? I really like the promo w/ the Ice Bird commercial. Even though it will never be the 70s again, this show help us remember the days when you waited all week for Saturday morning, sat in your PJs, ate sugar coated goodness and watched 5 hours of your fave toons. Now if we could only get some Krofft goodness!

    Thanks fellas.

  3. First, to say how much I enjoy this show–having grown up in the 70s, it’s a great throwback to the Saturday morning cartoons of that decade…I absolutely LOVED watching them, it’s great to have something that pays tribute to them.

    Second, it seems that the “critics” have much to complain about–I wonder if they actually watched each episode and tried to find something good…OK, so the animation may not be “vintage”, no laugh track (does it really need one?), if it looked exactly like the vintage shows, would that make any difference?

    It would be cool to see it on TV, looking exactly like “Scooby Doo”, “The Sundance Kids Featuring Butch Cassidy”, etc. And of course, released on DVD (would have to expand the current and future shows to about 23 minutes or 6-7 with singalongs, like “The Beatles” animated series (which also should be on DVD)).

    Forget the critics and enjoy “The Velvet Mouse Show”!
