The Nutshack (found Filipino animated sitcom; 2007-2011)
The Nutshack was an animated sitcom created by Ramon Lopez and Jessie Hernandez. Produced by ABS-CBN International and aired on Myx TV in the United States and Myx in the Philippines, it is notable for being the first animated series made for Filipino-Americans. The series concerns the daily lives of the Filipino-American Phil, a native to San Francisco, and his cousin Jack, a Filipino immigrant, as they have numerous crude encounters across the fictitious Daily City. The series ran for two seasons, one in 2007 and another in 2011, before being cancelled. The show would end up gaining an ironic following in mid-2016 due to its theme song being commonly used in video game music parody tracks by the YouTube channel SiIvaGunner.
