Inspired by He-Man, Mystery Science Theater 3000 and the work of David Lynch, self-taught, independent Canadian animator Myles Langlois created Apollo Gauntlet, a quarter-hour animated adventure comedy series set in a futuristic medieval society. The series centers around Paul Cassidy, an ordinary cop on Earth, but when the evil Dr. Benign transports him to another world, he becomes a new kind of hero. With the help of a magical suit and a set of talking gauntlets, he’s able to fight crime exactly the way he wants...and he’ll do it as APOLLO GAUNTLET!
Apollo Gauntlet is created by Langlois and produced by Six Point Harness, part of MONDO’s animation company, which operates the most-viewed animation channel on YouTube, and develops, produces, acquires and distributes adult animation for digital and traditional media worldwide. Combined, the studios are responsible for popular digital animated series such as Happy Tree Friends, Deep Space 69, Cat Agent and Dick Figures.
