The New Krypto the Superdog is a sequel of the American animated television series Krypto the Superdog. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Based on the character by DC Comics.
It is produced in a manner reminiscent of the Hanna-Barbera shows of the 1960s to the 1980s, from the sound effects down to the animation style (veteran Hanna-Barbera designer Iwao Takamoto served as a creative consultant). The series is rated TV-Y.
The sequel is close captioned by the National Captioning Institute like many of Warner Bros. Animation's shows at the time.
Three years ago Krypto was adopted by Kevin Whitney, a 9-year-old boy, with whom Superman arranges for him to stay (as Superman himself is often too busy saving the world to take care of him). Krypto poses as an ordinary dog while living with Kevin's family, but adopts the secret identity of Superdog for his superheroic deeds; Kevin was aware of Krypto's dual identity, but the rest of Kevin's family was not. (Excluding Kevin's spoiled cousin Bailey, however accidental).
In the original series, the various animals, including Krypto, all are capable of speaking to each other, but not to humans, except for Kevin and later Andrea (they are able to communicate with Krypto and the other animals thanks to a universal translator that they wear, known as an intergalactic communicator).
Now Krypto's superheroic adventures continues! In this sequel Kevin Whitney is 12 years old and can still talk to animals keeping their indentities secret. So can his next door neighbor Andrea. Along with Streaky the Supercat, Ace the Bathound, the Dog Star Patrol, Stretch-O-Mutt and more! And the supervillains: Mechanikat, Snooky Wookums, Delilah, Isis (Cat Woman’s cat), Bud and Lou (the Joker’s Hyenas), the Penguin’s Birds and Ignatius (Mr. Lutho’s iguana). Streaky’s supercat fan club too. You will also meet new heroes and villains.
