   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.

Background

A Sweet Treets cartoon created by Colourbox in partnership with Kubokartoonz was announced in 1993. It was reported that 30 episodes had been created before the series has even began airing. All of the main cast from the previous 1984 cartoon reprised their roles.

Differences from The Sweet Treets

  • As mentioned above, TNAOTST is significantly less tame than its predecessor.
  • Each episode now lasts either 17 or 19 minutes.
  • The human characters are seen wearing more wintery outfits, as the entire series appears to take place during the autumn/winter period.
  • King Rojo has significantly less of a role in TNAOTST, often relying on his new henchman, Stumpy, to execute his “evil” plans.
  • Several new characters, such as Anthem Rivers, have been introduced.

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.
