Amazing Adrenalini Brothers are Xan, Adi and Enk; a trio of circus
forever risking life and limb in a series
of hellraising, highfalutin', death-defying
stunts and capers. The brothers hale from
the dark heart of Europe, from the
little-known country of Rendoosia. They're
fiercely patriotic, ready to jump, dive,
leap, ride, fire, plunge, and plummet
for their country with ne'er a blink of the
eye. At least, that's the theory...
Unfortunately for the brothers, everything
that can go wrong does. But this
brave trio soldier on to the very end,
be they dunked, shot, ignited, tipped, tossed,
expectorated, or expelled. And no matter
the state of distress, unrest, upheaval
and upset each electrifying stunt ends
with an exclamatory - nay, defiant -
Rendoosian cry of "Yahzaa!"
amazing short films
The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers started
out as a crazy concept in the
minds of the award-winning comedy team
The POX. Then Pesky Ltd
stepped up to co-develop and produce
a first series of films for the CBBC
website and channel. And they were a big
hit. The films were subsequently
snapped up by Nickelodeon in the States,
and Cartoon Network in Japan.
Volcanoes, dinosaurs, massive cannons,
extraordinary high dives, even
galactic tightropes - nothing was too
outrageous to feature in an Adrenalini
stunt. In all, ten of their incredible
performances were captured on film, and
each is so unbelievably daring they
have to have an exclamation mark after
after their title. Here they are:
High Dive of Doom! Ocean
Volcano of Venom! Monster
Wings of Destiny!
Box of No Return!
Slopes of Peril! Joust
Cannon of Chaos! Tightrope
These first short films were animated
using Flash Animation software - the
kind of software readily available to home
users like you and I and frequently
encountered on web sites around the globe. Pesky
poured their unique
talents and experience into the program,
working wonders with software
which you may previously have thought was
But hang on a minute. What's with all
the past-tense? Well, you see these
little films put our three Rendoosian
stars well and truly on the cartoon
map, and ultimately resulted in a brand-spanking
commission of suitably
amazing proportions. Xan, Adi and Enk
now have their very own fully-fledged
tv series, and the first season alone comprises
of 39 frantic adventures.
It's a series that's so big it's been given
it's very own page here at
