Atomic Puppet follows 12-year-old Joey Felt, a super-fan of superhero Captain Atomic. When Captain Atomic is transformed into a powerless puppet by his disgruntled sidekick, he soon realizes that the only way to gain back his former powers is to team up with Joey, which is both the worst thing that could happen to a superhero, and the best thing that could happen to a 12-year old boy. Together, the two form an awkward and comedic partnership as Mega City’s newest superhero duo, Atomic Puppet.
The original concept for Atomic Puppet was created by animated television writer Mark Drop and writer/creator Jerry Leibowitz. In Canada, the series is developed by John Derevlany and Brad Birch, while being overseen by Mercury Filmworks’ Director of Development Travis Williams, as well as the Technicolor Creative Development team. In France, Technicolor is working with Thierry Rivard to lead the co-production on behalf of Technicolor while development in France is led by Gaumont Animation.
