Angry Birds Toons – Rovio’s New Cartoon Series Premieres March 16th

A brand new Angry Birds cartoon series — Angry Birds Toons — will premiere on March 16th and 17th. From what we know now, it looks like it will be a web based series that will air on, angrybirds.com/toons (with the videos likely hosted on Rovio’s YouTube channel). We don’t have a lot of details, but it will be a cartoon series, which means more than one. Below is what Rovio has stated on their YouTube channel:

Have you ever wondered why the Bomb Bird is so angry? How the King Pig became a King? And why those Pigs are after those eggs?

Rovio is proud to announce an all-new animated series that throws the doors to Piggy Island wide open!

Premiering on the weekend of March 16th and 17th, Rovio will bring you the first weekly episode featuring the latest adventures of the birds and the pigs.

So mark your calendar, and STAY TOONED to their channel to find out more!

Rovio is no stranger to animations. They’re produced many animated shorts, as well as some amazing animated teasers. A few of which we’ve listed below. Some of the originals really helped cement Rovio as an entertainment brand, as well as extend the phenomenon that is Angry Birds.

@sal9 thanks for keeping us informed. I look forward to getting the whole story behind our favorite birds and their bitter feud with the piggies. :)

For those who don’t know, Rovio bought Kombo, an animation studio in May 2011. They have been producing all the animated shorts in-house ever since.

Thanks @dr-omega I did not know that.

It will be interesting to view the data presented about the birds and the story lines. Wonder if games will be presented from the by-lines of the tunes.

As a company they are expanding and diversifying their products to the public.

There was some information regarding most of the Birds’ histories in the National Geographic book that came out last year. Especially the Mighty Eagle.

No word on Hal though. And he doesn’t seem to be in the trailer for TOONs either.. Haven’t seen Bubbles or Stella either..

By Greeny356

Hal is my favorite bird.Yet,I don’t really see him that much.

I hope they have an episode featuring a complete Mighty Eagle, since the animated shorts only shows the eye part and the beak part (and silhouette. I hope for a coloured one).

In the “Meet the Flock” promo for the toons, the main 5 + Terence are introduced, but Stella is in the video as well (somewhere in the beginning), so it’s certain she’ll make an appearance.

Looks like an animation from the rovio channel on youtube.

I wonder if it will last 30 minutes or 3 minutes as a promotional animation, whatever, it looks really cool, but will be awesome if the sence of humor will be for 12+

Agree . . .
my little sister will be really happy, she watch (almost) all the AB animation. Wonder if I show her with this one :D

I saw this yesterday on game pause screen. Yeah, that’s really cool and I expect it would be something like CTR and Swampy cartoons. However it would be cool to download them all to device into special video application – AB cartoons.

I hope they don’t have voice, like CTR and Swampy cartoons. That would be very ugly for me, since they haven’t given voice to the characters on previous animations, so that means they don’t talk with words. I think they should “talk” with ‘squawks’ and ‘oinks’!

I tend to agree with you – I hope for no voices also.

(laughs) So funny the part that the Helmet Pig is turning something and many piggies come out! I would laugh more if I see more videos of it.

Yeah! maybe that place is the piggies house or something! XD

With this cartoon, it prove that matilda is a girl and this give me one question

if the place are focus to piggy island, does it mean the birds are intruder of the island?

By Loga

Maybe the birds migrate there…

Will you be allowed to post the toons’ videos on this site? I think it’s the easiest place to watch them (for me)

Any word on how long they will be? Short, about as long as the other animations? or maybe longer?

Avatar of Sith BirdRank: Fling King with 4260 points
By Sith Bird (@altla-darkwinder)

After I check the teaser, I guess it should be longer like half show of Spongebob Squarepants

There’s a new teaser out on YouTube. Looks like the first episode is “Chuck Time.”

I’ve read about what Oobgular said on Twitter with a link. Haven’t tried the “through the app” thing though.

BTW, if you watched the trailer, you’ll note that both Hal (Boomerang/Green) and Bubbles (Orange) aren’t in the picture. I asked Rovio about it (https://twitter.com/nanami_kamimura/status/311443397208600576).

Their answer:
They are not that fond of the cameras!

Just watched the first one on AB Original.
Very nice, great Animation as expected,
would like to see them out of the app though,
so I could watch at full quality.

I know this post is a little old, but I found something interesting in the toons menu in ABO- there will be 52 toons before, idk, maybe a season 2 of toons, like in ABS. @sal9
