Disney XD’s US channel just got a little more punk rock, thanks to a season two pick-up of short-form comedy series Dukes of Bröxstônia from Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF), the show’s distributor.
The 10 x three-minute animated second season follows teenage punk thrash band The Dukes (Arj, Barj and Larj) on a tour sponsored by the Bröxstônian government.
Created by Stu Connolly and Suren Perera, the series is produced by Australia’s Sticky Pictures (Bindi’s Bootcamp) and began as a 10 x 45-second series of shorts made for the launch of ABC Australia’s digital kids channel ABC3 in 2011. A third season, comprised of seven-minute episodes, returned to ABC3 in April 2013.
Additional broadcasters currently airing the series include Cartoon Network (Asia Pacific, Latin America), YLE (Finland) and kids streaming service Toon Goggles (US).
