Sushi Pack is an American animated television series produced by DIC Entertainment and American Greetings, that aired on the KEWLopolis block on CBS November 3, 2007 - September 12, 2009. It featured a team of anthropomorphic wasabi, salmon egg sushi, crab sushi, tuna sushi, and octopus sushi as they used their wits and their emotions to save the world and educate young children. The Sushi Pack team lives in a donut shop with their human friend, Ben. Despite the superhero element of the story, violence is used only as a last resort. The closing theme song of the show is a techno/rap/funk hybrid song written by Phofo, composer for the entire series. Sushi Pack was created by Studio Espinosa. Quests involve learning about the meaning of friendship, social skills, and teamwork.
Sushi Pack Members
Ikura Maki: Orange Salmon. He has the power to shoot sticky fish eggs. He is usually calm, but tends to feel an urge to compete with his teammates, which can cause competition. And, he sometimes looks out for Kani. He is voiced by Andrew Francis.
Kani Maki: Pink Crab. Her pigtails are tough crab claws, which she uses to give her foes a powerful pinch. In the episode "Pants on Fire", she develops a new power when she uses her crab claws. She can be grouchy and often claims others are "making me crabby". She is voiced by Chiara Zanni.
Tako Maki: Blue Octopus. He is the unofficial goodness and has six long tentacle arms, and a fake eye patch. Tako speaks in a British accent. He would rather use his powers of shooting multi-colored ink to be a world renowned painter than to fight evil. He is voiced by D.J Rick Adams.
Wasabi Pow: Yellow Wasabi. A smaller, and speechless member of the Sushi Pack. A spicy ball of hot mustard, he speaks hot sauce and can only communicate with squeaky noises (his teammates have no trouble understanding him), and has the power to shoot fireballs at foes. He is voiced by Scott McNeil.
