The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers is a British-Canadian 2D Flash animation series for television. It was commissioned by CITV and Cartoon Network in the UK, YTV and VRAK.TV in Canada and is a co-production between UK studio Pesky and Studio B Productions in Vancouver, British Columbia. 26 episodes were produced.
The show aired on YTV in Canada, and Cartoon Network in the United States as part of Sunday Pants. In the United Kingdom, the series aired on CITV and for a short while on Cartoon Network in 2007. Reruns were later shown on Boomerang from 2009 to 2011 and Pop from 2012 to 2015.
The show's directors Claire Underwood and Dan Chambers and producer David Hodgson picked up a Best Animation BAFTA for the series in 2006.
Three travelling showmen hailing from the mysterious land of Réndøosîa (a fictional Eastern European country that experiences an unusually high rate of natural disasters to the point that its flag is always depicted with a hole in it, as well as being at war with the neighboring nation of Grimzimistan), the three Adrenalini brothers (Xan, Enk and Adi), tour around the world staging ridiculously hazardous stunts, usually succeeding (but more out of luck than skill). In their travels, the Adrenalinis have visited many real countries and places in the world, and even many periods in history (and, in some cases, fiction).
The series first came out in Australia, in two separate volumes. In the UK, Studiocanal released a 3-disc set on 9 April 2012, containing all 78 episodes from the TV series (1 & 2); in this release, two episodes, "Tails of Longing!" and "Dragon of Antagonism!" were edited to removes scenes that would have been considered imitable behaviour easily copied by children (specifically, Xan and Adi attempting to use a washing machine as a submersible in the former, and a glasses-less Xan catching a still-live firework before throwing it down in a panic after recognising it in the latter), these scenes are retained on the HuHa YouTube channel. The original online episodes are not included. There are currently no DVDs for Region 1.
The original web episodes were uploaded on the official Adrenalini channel on YouTube, while an episode from the TV series would be uploaded on Mondays. From its launch in November 2012, the television series moved to an adult animation YouTube channel called "Huha", with an episode being uploaded every Friday until Huha ceased uploading in early 2014. A French and German version of the channel also includes episodes from the series.
