Bolts & Blip is a Korean-Canadian All-CGI Cartoon produced by ToonBox Entertainment and Red Rover Studios. It was posthumously created by the late Canadian animator Andy Knight, founder of Red Rover Studios and creator of such cartoons as Ned's Newt, Pig City, and Get Ed.

In The Future, disputes on Earth are resolved by the Lunar League Games — robots competing in sporting events in a robot city on the Moon. All these robots were built by the mysterious Dr. Tommy, except for the malevolent Bloodbots built by Dr. Blood, who wants to conquer the Moon.

Bolts and Blip were best friends stuck in a boring office job, who wanted to take part in the games—then due to a computer error, they got their chance, joining the chronically losing team, the Thunderbolts. To everyone's surprise, including their own, they do well there, and the Thunderbolts start winning.


Blip, meanwhile, starts uncovering evidence of a conspiracy involving Dr. Blood's plans to conquer the Moon.

The series debuted in June 28, 2010 on Teletoon, running for a single season of 26 episodes. It later aired in the United States in 2013 as part of Vortexx block on The CW. During its run in America, the series became notable for being the only new cartoon to premiere in the very last season of broadcast network Saturday Morning Cartoons.
