If you’re nostalgic for classic video games and iconic cartoons, or just want to watch a fun new action-packed animated series, check out Glitch Techs ASAP. Co-created by Eric Robles (Fanboy) and Dan Milano (Greg the Bunny), and produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios for Netflix last year. Glitch Techs centers on two teenagers–Miko and High Five–whose job at a game store acts as a front for their real work: hunting down glitched video game monsters who have broken out into the real world. All nine episodes are streaming on Netflix now if you want to add it to your watchlist or jump right to the good stuff.

The diverse and talented voice cast includes Sandeep Parikh as Haneesh, Luke Youngblood as Mitch, Monica Ray as Miko, Ricardo Hurtado as High Five, Zehra Fazal as Zahra, Josh Sussman as Bergy, Eric Lopez as Papi and Scott Kreamer as Phil, with Milano voicing BITT. Additional voice actors include Grey Griffin, Jessica DiCicco, Hynden Walch, Kate Higgins, and Kari Wahlgren. The animation hails from Flying Bark, Studio100, and TopDraw. And it was such a great new addition to the medium that we decided to review it for our animation-focused podcast, Saturday Mourning Cartoons.
