“It follows middle-aged father Kevin and his titular not-so-secret identity, whose only superpower is a burning passion for following the rules and rooting out petty crime in the town of Dapto,” read the synopsis. “Although it seems like any other Australian suburb, evil cosmic and man-made forces are waiting to attack the unsuspecting Daptonians. In a bid to cleanse his hometown, and constantly tying his frustrated family into his adventures, the Koala Man is ready. He will do anything to defeat evil minds, supernatural terrors, or worse: idiots who don’t take their bins on the right days.
Koala Man is executive produced by Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland, Scott Greenberg, Ben Jones, Joel Kuwahara, Dana Tafoya-Cameron, Mike Coway, and Emma Fitzsimmons. It was produced by Dario Russo and David Ashby.
