Produced for television by Sam Register with the help of former Jellyfish member Andy Sturmer, who had previously worked with the real duo. Animation was done with [[UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash Flash]] by Renegade Animation in California, making it the only show at the time to have been fully animated in the US (thus making their choice of characters quite ironic), with characters designed by famed Canadian artist [[http://www.lynive.com/ Lynne Naylor]] which got the show nominated for the coveted Annie Award. The series follows the two best friends/[[TheRockstar musicians]] and their manager Kaz as they travel around on their world tour with a number of nutty adventures along the way.
