Cannon Busters Pilot Goes Live for Backers

Cannon Busters: The Animated Series—which comes from LeSean Thomas, who worked on The Boondocks, the animated Black Dynamite series, and The Legend of Korra; and the talented folks at anime studio Satelight—was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter in 2014. Now the results are rolling out, and the pilot is officially available to backers as of July 8.

If you didn’t back the project, you can still sample some of the characters and action in the official trailer below. 


Explore the fantastic land of Gearbolt as we follow a motley crew of travelers on an unforgettable journey to reunite 2 best friends. S.A.M. is a high-end, friendship robot, determined to reunite with her best friend Kelby, the missing heir to her Kingdom under siege. Casey Turnbuckle is an out-dated, spunky greasy-monkey repair robot, looking for an upgrade. Philly the Kid is a wanted, immortal fugitive just looking for a chance to shake them. Along for the ride is the greatest swordsman never known and a suped up, Cadillac Eldorado that transforms into a sentient, giant robot. On their own, they’re a lost cause. Together, they’re the hippest world travelers this side of 2D animation!

A dangerous journey is best measured in friends, not miles!
