PotenDogs' Poop song becomes hit with K-Pop Stars - it's the newest craze in South Korea. Director Dahl Lee gets in on the action with the girls in this recent viral video
AKG Games, a Korean homegrown game publisher and intellectual property rights company has announced a partnership with leading Korean 3D animation studio – RetroBot. This partnership sees AKG Games manage the animation and product licensing rights for RetroBot’s newest intellectual property – PotenDogs – across Indonesia and the Philippines.
PotenDogs is a Korean 3D CGI animation created by Studio RetroBot. Since its debut in Korea in April 2021, it has become the most downloaded cartoon on Korea’s Educational Broadcasting System’s (EBS) Video On Demand Service.
Retrobot Animation Studios is a Korean animation company founded in 2008 by animator Dahl Lee and involved in Tobot, Biklonz, and Tobot Athlon. Retrobot began with a belief in the importance of a strong foundation in the domestic market, rather than the prioritization of the international market.
Tobot (Korean: 변신자동차 또봇, RR: Byeonsinjadongcha Ttobot) is a South Korean animated television series produced by Young Toys and Retrobot. The series features transforming cars — some of which are designed after Kia vehicles.
The series is available in Korean and English on Young Toys' official YouTube channel. The toy line beat Lego as South Korea's most popular toy line in 2013.
An official English dub was produced in Canada by Ocean Productions and its sister studio Blue Water Studios, airing over a few months in 2018. This version is currently available on Netflix.
In December 2014, Young Toys erected an eight-meter, three ton statue of Deltatron at the Sky Park outside Seoul's Lotte Mall Gimpo International Airport shopping complex to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Tobot.
