Sushi Pack is a Canadian-American animated television series produced by DIC Entertainment and American Greetings, that aired on the KEWLopolis block on CBS November 3, 2007 to September 12, 2009. The show features 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 show, 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. Quests involve learning about the meaning of friendship, social skills, and teamwork.
Sushi Pack members
Ikura Maki: Orange Salmon Egg. He has the power to shoot sticky fish eggs from his hands. 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, hinting that he has a crush on her. Ikura also has a fear of bears, including gummy ones. 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 de facto leader of the group 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 DJ Rick Adams.
Wasabi Pow: Green Wasabi. The smallest, 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.
Legion of Low Tide
Titanium Chef: A mean catfish who not only orders the Legion of Low Tide to fight dirty and scheme evil plots, and also manages the sushi bar they live in. He is voiced by Adam Behr.
- Ben: A close friend of the Sushi Pack and manages the donut shop where they live. He always gives them advice or suggestions.
- Mayor Hack Martin: The mayor of Wharf City who calls on the Pack in an emergency.
