Teenage Pokemon: The first episode

11:30 AM on 12.15.2012 // Jonathan Holmes

Like Malcom in the Middle, but with swears and Wartortles

[Teenage Pokemon is a cartoon show about Pokemon in their second stage of evolution. Expect some parody/tribute to videogame culture, industry, players, and events.]

I just realized that the first episode of The Simpsons was a Christmas Special. That show went on to do pretty well for itself I guess. Same with South Park. Weird. 

I swear to God, it's purely a coincidence that the first episode of Teenage Pokemon is also a Christmas Special. I can only dream that the show will go on to be a fraction as funny and long lived as The Simpsons and South Park. If it even goes on to be as popular as Hello Larry, I'll be happy. 

Check out a preview of Season 1 below, as well as the credits for the series so far. Thanks to everyone who helped make this thing possible.
