Disney XD has set a premiere date for Kirby Buckets, an ambitious new comedy that mixes animation with live action. The show will launch Monday, Oct. 20, at 8/7c, followed by a new episode of Lab Rats at 8:30/7:30c.
Kirby Buckets stars Jacob Bertrand (Marvin Marvin) as a 13-year-old who aspires to be a famous animator. The show follows Kirby and his best friends Fish (Mekai Curtis) and Eli (Cade Sutton) as they navigate their unusual small town. Kirby's animated characters (whom only he and the audience can see) also show up. The show also stars Olivia Stuck as Kirby's older sister Dawn, and Tiffany Espensen as Dawn's best friend Belinda.
Gabe Snyder and Mike Alber (Supah Ninjas) created Kirby Buckets, which is executive produced by Kristofor Brown (Beavis and Butt-head).
Kirby Buckets will be offered as a sneak preview to to users of the WatchDisneyXD app starting Oct. 13, while the online game "Kirby Buckets: Scrawl and Brawl" launches Oct. 1 at disneyxd.com.
