It has been brought to our attention from an Artist nicknamed Fluffy, according to a new statement from Trembley Studios regarding the kid screen advance press release from Toonz Media Group’s interest in NFTs was taken out of context. NFTs have become quite a problem in the Art Community with the rise of Art Thefts, something that we brought up last year. And so has the Guardian.

“Hey Fans,

I would like to bring clarification on the advance press release on Kidscreen.com that came out this morning.  The great majority of the press release that we internally approved were unfortunately left out on this morning’s article.  It should be corrected on the subsequent ones.

We want to emphasize that the focus is creating the animated series. The NFT mentioned in the press release was taken out of context as part of what Toonz Group does as a media company.

We are sorry for any misunderstandings.

Original Press Release: It has been Twenty-Eight Years since we have seen the Swat-Kats in action, now it has been confirmed that the Radical Squadron will be making their return.
