Super Sloth Episode 1: The Shar-Wolf of New York City

Best Suited 7-12 Years
In this origin story, pygmy sloth, Romeo Fortez, is born on remote Escudo Island. At his naming ceremony, a once-in-a-millennium event imbibes him with powers of speed, intelligence, and irresistibly hypnotic good looks. When Romeo moves to New York he discovers that Professor Ian Weird-Warp, a geneticist obsessed with splicing animal genes together, has unleashed a gigantic mutant shar-wolf on the city. With the help of some new human and animal friends, Romeo forms a team of crime fighters to save the city from the evil Professor Weird-Warp and his mutant creation.

League of Llamas 1: The Golden Llama

Best Suited 6-9 Years
The League of Llamas (LOL) are a group of secret llama agents and they’re on a mission to save the world – if only Agent 0011 Phillipe Llamar could stop looking in the mirror at his luxurious fringe and Agent 0013 Lloyd Llamanator could resist the temptation to eat everything in his path! There’s also the thieving General Bottomburp to contend with and a mysterious lady llama in red.

Can Phillipe and Lloyd foil the evil plans of Bottomburp and his badger henchmen? The fate of the Llama Republic’s most prized relic, the Golden Llama, depends on it!

League of Llamas 2: Llama Impossible

Best Suited 6-9 Years
A train speeding out of control, a bold bank robbery and a dazzling diamond heist – trouble is afoot in New Llama City! Luckily, the League of Llamas’ top agents, Phillipe and Lloyd, are on the case. And luckily for them, Mama Llama and agent Elloise Llamaresky are on their cases to make sure the job actually gets done.

Is the odious badger General Bottomburp to blame? Or could there be a new kingpin in town? After all, every secret agent should know that appearances can be deceiving!

League of Llamas 3: Undercover Llamas

Best Suited 6-9 Years
After failing to apprehend some dangerously peck-happy hens, the League of Llamas are going undercover! But these aren’t any ordinary secret identities – Phillipe, Lloyd and Elloise are joining Bruno Llamars (and his grumpy manager, Wally Chimpopo) as band members on the pop star’s next tour . . . to Chickenlovakia.

As the stakes – and tensions – climb higher and higher, will the LOL agents’ cover be blown before they can track down their feathery foes? Only time and some rather alarming discoveries will tell!

Best Suited 6-9 Years
League of Llamas secret agent Phillipe Llamar is on the run! Determined to clear his name after being framed for a crime he didn’t commit, Phillipe dons a disguise and goes on the hunt for the true criminal – one Ratrick Tailbiter. But the more Phillipe investigates, the less the case makes sense and the more things start becoming suspiciously . . . smelly.

From Ratopia to Catagonia, Phillipe’s journey leads him far from home. Will he be able to solve this mystery alone? Hunted by friends and enemies alike, this is Agent 0011’s most daring adventure yet!
