And now Decoder Ring Theatre brings you the continuing adventures of Canada's greatest superhero, that scourge of the underworld, hunter of those who prey upon the innocent, that marvelous masked mystery man know only as The Red Panda!
The Red Panda, mysterous crucader for justice, hides his true identity as one of the city's wealthiest men in his neverending battle against crime and corruption. Only his trusty driver, Kit Baxter, who joins him in his quest in the guise of The Flying Squirrel knows who wears the mask of The Red Panda!
It's a pastiche of cheesy old superhero shows, set in 1930's Toronto. Complete with bizarre explanations, descriptions of cheap visuals (they didn't even bother create), banter, and illiteration. With a dash of added self-awareness.
Case in point The Red Panda and The Flying Squirrel have static electricity-powered shoes allowing them to walk up walls and ceilings as if they were floors.
It's all very amusing!
Then if that wasn't enough, it's emotional exploration of WWII is both thorough and effective. In part by tearing apart the existing superhero world they've previously established, exploring more of it in the process.
