The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is an animated web television series that airs on Amazon Video. It is the first American series under the production of DreamWorks Animation Television to air on a streaming network other than Netflix. The show is the reboot of the original ‘Rocky and Bullwinkle and friends’, first premiered in 1959. It was taken off-air by NBC Universal in 1964. Its preceding spin-off ‘The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show’ was also produced by DreamWorks and premiered in 2015 on Netflix.
The animated shows today lack the essence of innocence that was there decades ago. While today’s shows exclusively target the children as their prime audience, it was not the case with the older shows. People who grew up with the classics like Tom & Jerry, Sponge Bob Squarepants and their contemporaries aired on Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, will attest to the fact that those shows can never become outdated. Apart from bringing back the nostalgia, these shows also surprise the audience with the fact that their writers were way ahead of their time, proving it by subtly inserting touches of sarcasm, satires, and puns that we failed to notice as kids.
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle has done justice to its original classic aired almost 60 years ago. Even better, the show is back with upgraded quality, thanks to the modern day’s advanced technologies. Though, the one thing that we can certify with the show is that its writers may never have intended the show to be limited to any one section of the audience as the reboot of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle season 1 was very well received even by the millennial all over. So, the question arises: will there be a The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle season 2? Let’s find out.
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle Cast: Who’s in it?
Tara Strong, known for the voice of Bubbles from ‘Powerpuff Girls’ takes over the role of Rocky, the squirrel, while Brad Norman, a relatively new name in the world of voice-acting, perfectly compliments the character of strong and silly Bullwinkle, the moose. The antagonist Boris Badenov is played by the talented Ben Diskin, known best for his role as Sylvester in ‘Kindergarten Cop’ and Sai in ‘Naruto: Shippuden’. The co-antagonist of the show Natasha Fatale is voiced by Rachel Butera, who stepped into the big shoes of late June Forray. Piotr Michael has done a brilliant job as Fearless Leader while the remarkable narration is performed by Daran Norris.
Each actor brings out the best of the characters and executes a very convincing performance. For The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle season 2, we are sure to see the same cast return once again behind the screens.
