Fitz gets animated

The Cardinals have been around the NFL Rush Zone cartoon before. Patrick Peterson made an appearance once upon a time. Now it’s Larry Fitzgerald’s turn. Fitz — or at least his cartoon version — will battle whatever the evil is in this show. The excellent plot synopsis:


With Sudden Death in possession of multiple Megacores, the Core Accelerator weapon is ready to launch. Total destruction of the Hall of Knowledge seems imminent, until Wild Card takes it upon himself to derail the plot by slipping some secret information to the Guardians, then blaming the betrayal on the Anticorians.  Marty’s non-Guardian life also takes an unexpected turn when he learns he must change schools. He worries about how he’ll fit in, and if he’ll still be able handle his Guardian responsibilities. But thanks to Brent Celek, Tight End for the Philadelphia Eagles, and Arizona Cardinals Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Marty and Ish both get a lesson in facing the unknown.”

If I’ve told Ish once, I’ve told him (her?) a thousand times, gotta trust Fitz against the Anticorians.

The show airs Wednesday, Oct. 8, at 9:30 p.m. ET (6:30 p.m. Arizona time) on Nicktoons and again Saturday, Oct. 11 at 8 a.m. ET (5 a.m. Arizona time).

    These days there are not too many guys in sports that embody the wholesome “good guy” image that parents want their their children to emulate but,Larry Fitzgerald is that guy (as is Patrick Peterson). Talent,professionalism, integrity,class, and the respect of colleagues as well as world leaders, as well as the working class citizen,Fitz has achieved success through hard work and focus and is a living testament to the value of being a soft spoken good guy.It’s not surprising that Nicktoons would fashion a superhero after him as he is looked up to, and admired by kids (and adults)globally who proudly wear his #11 jersey. In our large extended family that crosses many states(and several NFL teams) Fitz is the guy everybody wants to see play and cheer for,and makes me proud to be from Arizona!

    Perhaps a cool concept would be the NFL’s version of Masters of the Universe Legion in which the good guy heroes: Fitz, Peterson, Aaron Rogers, etc. would fight off the villains, The Evil Emporer, Dr. Greed, Dirty Play, various characters representing what’s destroy the game (the universe) and would teach the value of good sportsmanship and clean play along the way. Although it might be tough to have a believeable scenario where the good guys actually win!

    That’s pretty cool then that they use their actual voices and not some knock-off or bootleg.
