   The New Adventures of The Sweet Treets is a Jetanie-Kuboian animated Kantasy series. It is the third cartoon based on The Sweet Treets franchise after Storytime with the Treets and The Sweet Treets.

Although Colourbox returned to producing the cartoon, The New Adventures of The Sweet Treets was also co-produced by Kuboian cartoon studio Kubokartoonz. Despite the show being targeted at young children, the show took a much darker approach than the previous two shows based on the Treets. Because of this, the show was censored outside of Kuboia, Japan and Internet.

The show premiered on Vision One on 9th September, 1995, and received four series and 50 episodes before ending its original run on 29th April, 1997. The show was reran on Nick Jr. in several regions throughout the 2000's.

Premise

A year has passed since the events of the 1984 cartoon, and Louise Lockridge (who is now ten years-old, she was nine in the 1984 cartoon) has started treating the Treets more like pets rather than assistants. Since Louise is growing older, however, she has started to learn about, in her words, "the crappy things of life". A lot of threats have been hitting Louise's hometown recently, including problems with her father, conflicts with new girl Anthem Rivers and her friends frequently running into danger. Although she is stressed, Louise is eager to put all of her troubles to rest.

Since TNAOTST is a Kantasy show, it has a lot of differences to the 1984 series to reflect this. For starters, most of the characters have received a design (and in some cases, personality) overhaul - the human characters have less realistic facial features but more realistic (and different) clothing. Despite still being branded as the main antagonist, King Rojo is not only much less relevant, but much kinder. On the other hand, Marilyn Madison and Swoop have had their roles increased and are now main characters. All of these changes have carried over to future installments.

Also unlike the 1984 cartoon, TNAOTST has fantasy violence, minor profanity, references to alcohol and several frightful and/or intense scenes. However, all of these are toned down in most international regions in order for the show to air on preschool channels.

Although most of the show's episodes last 17 minutes and 25 seconds, a few of them last 19 minutes and 50 seconds.

Controversy

The New Adventures of The Sweet Treets has been a debatable series in the media due to the show’s darker approach.

The show was banned in Francophone parts of the Island of Sally, as religious content is not allowed in that area due to strong religious feuds.

Legacy

Due to the show's darker and more mature approach than the other cartoons in the franchise, The New Adventures of The Sweet Treets has received a cult following.

In early 2018, the show began to resurface on the internet after the show suddenly regained popularity, mainly in the LGBT community.
