The story of Skunk Fu begins with the Stork, whom being shortsighted, accidentally delivers an animal of western descent to China.
Skunk is a hyperactive and fun-seeking animal; fortunately for him, the kind and well-meaning Panda raised him and continues to teach him the ways of the world. Included in these teachings are martial arts, kung fu, whose philosophical disciplinary strategies enable the soul to flex and form with any variety of circumstances.
As Skunk slowly picks up eastern martial arts and attempts to pay attention to wise old Panda's exercises in philosophical discussion and debate, he becomes more and more aware of a danger that exists in The Valley… a centuries-old battle in which Skunk is destined to play the savior.
The good animals of The Valley live in fear of the evil Dragon, whose historic if not legendary lust for power and control has resulted in many years of fear and suffering for the region. With his minions always out and about--such as lead henchman Baboon and the army of Ninja Monkeys--Dragon is full of pride and isn't willing to back down from ages of struggle. In the face of this danger, Skunk would rather practice cool new kung fu moves and have fun rather than study the art of Zen and fight off recurrent attacks from Dragon. Yet, with the assistance of additional animals-- the combat-ready Rabbit, the skillful Fox, the cowardly Tiger--Skunk may be able to master his mysterious "defense mechanism" and turn the tide in this ageless war in The Valley.
A comedy whose characters enjoy being themselves as much as they enjoy interacting with the defining characteristics of others, Skunk Fu (52x13) tells a tale of good versus evil in flash animation with comedy, action and intrigue, like so few other television animation productions. Skunk Fu is about a hero's journey… but the series is also about the many amusing things that happen along the way. Cited by Betsy McGowen, Kids' WB! svp and gm as a program with a style and flavor that fits perfectly into the Kids' WB! line-up, Skunk Fu is the sixth new series coming to the programming block for the 2007-2008 slate.
