ROBOSPLAAT had already amassed a global cult-following before his animated webisodes premiered on the Klasky Csupo Official Instagram page during the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting this weekend, all-new episodes of ROBOSPLAAT will premiere on the Klasky Csupo YouTube Channel and Official Instagram page twice per week and continue into early 2021. Klasky Csupo has created over 100 mini episodes of ROBOSPLAAT and the series is off to a great start with lots of love from fans that grew up with Klasky Csupo cartoons. RobosSplaat will also appear in the new game SPLAATIVERSE, where players take a photo, record their voice prompted by a question and choose from a list of surprise sound effects which are all woven into Splaat's cartoon. The engaging, chain story-telling app has 30 stories designed to be played limitless times and will be available for download soon.
Arlene Klasky initially thought of the idea after Klasky Csupo’s partnership with Nickelodeon came to an end in 2006. While researching online, she realized kids from all over the world were creating mashups of the iconic Klasky Csupo animated logo at the end of Rugrats. This sparked an idea---Klasky, along with designer Sergei Shramkovsky, took the robot and put arms and legs on him. The result was an opportunity to birth a new character and bring him to life in his own online series.
To voice the ROBOSPLAAT character, Klasky turned to her longtime friend and collaborator Greg Cipes, the prolific actor, musician, and producer, whose voice has given life to the iconic, animated superhero Beast Boy for two decades across Teen Titans, Teen Titans GO!, Young Justice, DC Superhero Girls, and many more DC Superhero franchises. He is also known as the voice of Michelangelo in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series and as Kevin Levin in Ben 10, among his hundreds of roles. Cipes voices the RoboSplaat character and hosts TALK CEREAL, a live, weekly interview series, speaking with fellow voice over actors, via the @RoboSplaat Instagram channel.
New episodes of ROBOSPLAAT drop every Wednesday and Saturday at 9am PST on Instagram (@robosplaat) and YouTube. TALK CEREAL Live with @Gregcipes airs every Monday at 11am PST on Instagram.
