Da Boom Crew is a Canadian/American children's television animated series, produced by Berliner Film Company in association with Jambalaya Studios in Los Angeles, California.

The series premiered on Kids' WB in September 2004. Unusual for an animated series, it was cancelled after only four episodes aired due to low ratings and viewer reception.

In the United Kingdom, all 13 episodes were broadcast on Cartoon Network UK in 2005.[1][2]

A press release by Animation Magazine claimed a second season had been in production, though nothing else was ever said about it actually going into production or being animated.[3]

Plot[edit]

After four foster children make a video game about heroes going up against space alien terrorists suddenly a portal appears and pulls them into a dimension which is really similar to their game. This show also details their adventures in this parallel world as they embark on a quest to find their missing video game cartridges and stop the sadistic extraterrestrial emperor Zorch from taking control of this intergalactic dimension.[4]
