CN Announces "My Gym Partner is a Monkey," Airdate For "Juniper Lee"
Cartoon Network today officially announced development of My Gym Partner is a Monkey from husband and wife team Tim Cahill and Julie McNally Cahill for a 2006 premiere. The network also revealed that The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, currently in production from DC whiz and Real World cast member Judd Winick, will premiere Sunday, June 5.
Gym Partner will chronicle the life of a 12 year-old named Adam Lyon and his attempt to survive Charles Darwin Middle School, a school full of wild animals. Lyon (voiced by Nikka Futterman) ends up the only human student at the school when his name is misspelled as “Lion” on a form. He befriends a spider monkey named Jake (Tom Kenney of SpongeBob fame), who progressively gets Adam into more and more trouble. The supporting cast will include Tyson, a bully bull shark, a giraffe, a toucan, and more. My Gym Partner is a Monkey is a CN original to be produced at the Burbank, CA studio and will air early next year.
