AboutÂ Chuck’s Choice
Brand new original 2D animated comedyÂ Chuck’s ChoiceÂ (40 x 11′)Â is aimed at kids aged 6-11. Currently in production at DHX’sÂ VancouverÂ studio,Â Chuck’s ChoiceÂ is directed byÂ Rob Boutilier, creator of the hit kids’ showÂ Kid vs. Kat.
ForÂ Chuck McFarlane, life is all about making choices. But lucky for him, these aren’t just regular everyday choices! Through an intergalactic gift from the stars, Chuck is bestowed with what may be the greatest device in the universeâ€¦the U-Decide 3000, giving him the power toÂ literallyÂ choose his next adventure!Â Some choices turn out great, others, not so much. After all, being given the power of flight sounds amazing. But what if it came with a larva sac attached to your abdomen? Suddenly everyone’s looking at you like you’re a bit strange. Of course Chuck’s life choices are a bit more mind-blowingly awesome, since he is…the DECIDER! While most kids have very limited choices, this 10-year-old gets to control his destiny and go on one thrilling adventure after another without any boring ol’ adults telling him what to do, and with his best friends coming along for the ride!

Each day, Roger scans the surface of our small blue planet from orbit aboard the Friend Ship. When he picks up a distress signal from an Earth creature, it’s his job as a Space Ranger to gear up with his team of rambunctious fix-it bots, find out what the problem is and save the day in a fun and creative way.
