Beginning in 2006 as a story told by one volunteer at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium, The Super Fins® cartoon characters finally made their public debut today with an Indiegogo social funding campaign announced by Sherpa Multimedia.
The Super Fins® is the the world's first aquatic, animated news network, as educational as it is entertaining. Led by their intrepid host Toro the Bull Shark© and his faithful, but put-upon producer Scampi the Shrimp©, TSF’s team of correspondents offer reports from all aquatic habitats, introducing audiences to new animals and their amazing superpowers. As entertaining as they are educational, The Super Fins® explain complicated topics in simple terms, which is why we say: The Super Fins® are underwater, but never over your head.
Since 2011, Sherpa Multimedia founder Scott Rowan has consulted with marine biology teachers, retired elementary school teachers, animators and illustrators to create The Super Fins as a fun way for people of ages to learn about the amazing superpowers that marine animals possess.
Grammy Award-winning musicians and Academy Award-nominated animation studios are part of the consultation team assembled to breathe life into Toro, Scampi, Whiskers and the gang. Award-winning illustrator Jim Siergey, one of Chicago's best cartoonists for more than 20 years, lends every character the charm and humor Siergey has created for years.
