Slacker Cats is an animated ABC Family series that premiered on August 13, 2007. It is the first animated show on ABC Family since the Fox Family era.[1] It is created using Adobe Flash.

The show was initially marketed as a children's show, but in later advertising and in press kits issued to the media, it was clearly indicated that the show included a more adult tone and themes.[2] The show's 10PM broadcast time further illustrated that its target was an adult audience.

Slacker Cats is animated by Film Roman, the same company that animates The Simpsons and King of the Hill. It features the voice talents of comedians Harland Williams and Sinbad in the lead roles. It was created by Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil, who also serve as executive producers along with animation director Seth Kearsley. The program is rated TV-14. Slacker Cats was canceled on September 17, 2007 after 6 episodes.

A second season of Slacker Cats premiered on the ABC Family website on January 19 2009, and according to its creators, will then be released on iTunes and Xbox Live Marketplace.[3]. The second season was numbered as a continuation of the first season, episodes 7 through 12.

The official website for the show features behind-the-scenes videos showcasing some of the animators who worked on animating the last episode of the first season.

Plot

Slacker Cats is about two funny animal cats and their quotidian strange and outrageous adventures. The animation style is similar to contemporary cartoons such as Family Guy. Main plots of the show revolve around Buckley and Eddie's schemes to escape the everyday monotony of being house cats by taking advantage of humans (as well as other cats) to freewheel themselves in the fictional city of Wendell, California.
