The Super Fins®
Begun in 2006 and launched in 2015, The Super Fins® is the world’s first animated, aquatic news network. Created to explain complicated topics in easy-to-understand ways, TSF has something for everyone. For younger aquatic enthusiasts, we have our cast of cartoon characters who help children understand and enjoy science. Guided by news anchor Toro the Bull Shark and his trusted producer Scampi the Shrimp, TSF’s correspondents scour the oceans, seas, ponds, lakes and waterways of the world to find the most fascinating stories. Each TSF correspondent covers a different aquatic beat so no matter if you’re fond for ponds or have emotion for the ocean, if you like the water, then The Super Fins has something for you. The Super Fins are:
