Rusty Rivets is a Canadian CGI interactive animated television series produced by Arc Productions and Spin Master Entertainment for Treehouse TV and Nickelodeon Productions.[3] Inspired by elements of the maker culture, it follows the adventures of a young inventor named Rusty and his team of customized robots.[4][5]

The first season was the last animated project of Arc Productions before it was absorbed into Jam Filled Toronto in August 2016. On May 22, 2018, it was renewed for a third season.[6]

Plot[edit]

A young boy named Rusty Rivets uses his knowledge of engineering to repurpose machine parts and create gadgets. He lives in the city[citation needed] of Sparkton Hills along with his friend Ruby Ramirez, a robotic tyrannosaurid named Botasaur, and a group of smaller robots known as the Bits. The show highlights a variety of concepts related to basic science and technology.[7][8]

Rusty uses the recurring catch phrase "modify, customize, Rustify" when personalizing inventions. Ruby changes the last word to "Rubify" when she does the alterations.

Characters[edit]

  • Rusty Rivets (voiced by Kyle Harrison Breitkopf) – An engineer. He has his own mobile laboratory, which is based in a recycling yard. He is the great great grandson of Ruston Rivets IV, which Ruby guesses hearing the number, indicating he is Ruston Rivets VIII.
  • Ruby (voiced by Ava Preston) – Rusty's best friend who normally carries a tablet computer that she uses to call the Bits into action.
  • Ray (voiced by Robert Tinkler) – A small, red-colored member of the Bits with a single eye that functions as a flashlight.
  • Whirly (voiced by Julie Lemieux) – A pink Bit who resembles a hummingbird. She has a pair of wings and a propeller on her head.
  • Crush (voiced by Julie Lemieux) – An orange Bit made from a clamp, who can crush and hold small objects.
  • Jack (voiced by Ron Pardo) – A relentlessly obedient, cube-shaped Bit who can lift and transport objects using his forklift-like arms.
  • Botasaur (voiced by Robert Tinkler) – The tallest member of Rusty's team, modeled after Tyrannosaurus rex. He is Rusty's sidekick.
  • Bytes (voiced by Robert Tinkler) – Rusty's robotic dog, who communicates by barking. He generally does not take part in missions.
  • Liam (voiced by Samuel Faraci) – A young blonde boy who often needs rescuing.
  • Ranger Anna – A red haired animal enthusiast in charge of the Sparkton Hills Scouts which Rusty and Ruby are part of. Voiced by Helen King.
  • Chef Betty – A black haired culinary expert. Voiced by Novie Edwards.
  • Sammy Scoops – An ice cream vendor. Voiced by Joshua Graham. The UK English version is voiced by Andy Turvey [9]
    • Samantha (aka Ice Cream Queen and Cone Woman) shares the nickname "Sammy". They go into business together in "Captain Scoops" and are shown playing soccer together in "Spaceship".
  • Mr. Higgins (voiced by James Rankin) – The first inventor in town who inspired Rusty.
  • Officer Carl (voiced by Jonathan Potts) – A police officer.
  • Frankie Fritz - (voiced by Jacob Skiba) Introduced during Season 2, Frankie is Rusty and Ruby's rival and arch-enemy, using every opportunity he can to try and upstage Rusty and be the best engineer in Sparkton Hills, even resorting to cheating to accomplish it.
  • Frankfurt - Frankie's robotic skunk and counterpart to Bytes. He helps Frankie in his attempts to put Rusty out of action.

Production[edit]

Rusty Rivets began development in late 2014.[67] The concept was originally pitched to Guru Studio, which ultimately chose not to develop the show. The first season was produced in accordance with Spin Master's policy to work on 1-2 television programs a year.[68] It is Spin Master's sixth animated television venture.[69]

Most of the first season's episodes were animated by Arc Productions in Toronto, Ontario. The studio closed on August 2, 2016, but its assets have been sold to the Ottawa-based company Jam Filled Entertainment, and the business reopened on August 22, 2016 as Jam Filled Toronto.[70]

Release[edit]

The series was announced at Nickelodeon's upfront presentation in New York City on March 2, 2016.[71] It was originally slated to premiere in the United States on August 22, 2016,[72][73] but it was pushed back to November 8, 2016. The first season was going to air on Treehouse TV in Canada throughout fall 2016,[74][75] but it was delayed until 16 January 2017.[14] Spin Master will distribute the series and its product line globally.[76] The series premiered on Nick Junior Israel on February 12, 2017.[77]
