Return of The Aquabats! Super Show!

Gloopy Toys commercial, pre-The Aquabats! Super Show! 

If you are fan of the rock n' roll super heroes The Aquabats! then you have heard of The Aquabats! Super Show!  Sadly, through no falt of their own, the show has been cancelled after the 2nd season. 

Christian Jacobs (secretly the band's leader, MC Bat Commander, shhhh) had this to say:

Jacobs admitted he was surprised by this turn of events, noting "Everything we heard was that the show has been a real Cinderella story for the Hub and that it was rating really well with viewers. We just assumed that we'd eventually go back into production or at least get picked up for Season 3", but ultimately concluded "it is what it is" in regard to the network's decision. Despite this, Jacobs remained optimistic about the series' future, saying "Given that we now live in a world where people are streaming TV shows directly onto their iPhones & computers, and given that companies like Netflix & Yahoo! are now picking up so much new content for their customers...I just find it hard to believe that The Aquabats! Super Show! is really over. I mean, we haven't even made any toys yet".[7] He concluded by stating "It took us almost 15 years to get that TV series made. And even though we've got a bunch more concert dates lined up for the rest of this year, our first priority is to find a new home for The Aquabats! Super Show!".

Hopefully Super Show! isn't truly over yet and we will someday see real life Aquabats action figures!  I have no doubt this will happen eventually, since Jacobs created the hit TV show Yo Gabba Gabba and there are loads of toys!  Toys are even a topic in the song Playdough, so you know they're near and dear to The Aquabats collective heart.  In the mean time we have The Aquabats Super Vlog to enjoy.
