Animation

STSC characters

How the main characters look like in the series.

Titmouse, who has provided animation for Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh and The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants, provides animation for the series, rather than using computer animation as the film series had used. The animation is based on the storybook artstyle from the beginning of Shrek Forever After, by Griselda Sastrawinata and Normand Lemay.

Cast

Michael Gough reprises the title character from previous video games titles and the DreamWorksTV YouTube videos, along with Dean Edwards returning as Donkey from the Halloween special Scared Shrekless, and Eric Bauza as Puss in Boots from the spin-off series The Adventures of Puss in Boots. Tara Strong voices Princess Fiona in the series in favor of Holley Fields, who has voiced her in countless pieces of media, and the cast members from the films such as Cody Cameron, Conrad Vernon, Jim Cummings, and Chris Miller reprise their roles.
