For more than five years, Dan Milano (Greg the Bunny) and Eric Robles (Fanboy & Chum Chum) have been laboring on Glitch Techs, a Nickelodeon cartoon. Initially set to debut in 2018 when it was first announced back in 2016, Nickelodeon fans were beginning to ponder the exact status of the show. Besides an early glimpse video released in early 2019, the lack of any concrete news when or if to expect the show to air had fans anxious if Glitch Techs would ever see the light of day.
Looks like the adage, “good things come to those who wait,” does indeed have some truth to it with the recent announcement that Glitch Techs will be available on the Netflix streaming platform February 21. Given the multi-year Netflix/Nickelodeon deal from November, the cartoon finding a home at Netflix doesn’t come as a complete surprise.
On his Twitter co-creator Milano described the influences and inspiration behind the animated show, “Being childhood fans of the paranormal investigation genre, Glitch Techs is absolutely Eric Robles’ and my love letter to Ghostbusters and Men in Black with plenty of X-Files, Buffy, Doctor Who, Star Trek, and dozens of other stuff we and our collabs grew up on.”
It’s quite a diverse cast featuring the voice talents of Ricardo Hurtado as High Five, Monica Ray as Miko, Luke Youngblood as Mitch, Sandeep Parikh as Haneesh, Zehra Fazal as Zahra, Josh Sussman as Bergy, Eric Lopez as Papi, Milano as BITT and Scott Kreamer as Phil.
Additional voice actors include— Betsy Sodaro, Ashly Burch, Greg Nix, Dee Bradley Baker, Stephanie Sheh, Jolene Kim, Felicia Day, Cree Summer, Roshon Fegan, Rachael Russakoff, Nolan North.
