The show takes place in the aftermath of a global accident, where microscopic machines known as nanites have merged with every living thing. For a select few, the nanites mutate their hosts into monstrous creatures called Exponentially Variegated Organisms (E.V.O.s). Fifteen year-old Rex is an E.V.O., but unlike the monsters he battles, Rex has control over his nanites. He alone has the ability to not only control these nanites—allowing him to create amazing mechanical limbs and gadgets that aid him in battle—but also heal E.V.O.s of their mutation. Rex is joined by a team of characters including his sidekick, a highly intelligent monkey named Bobo Haha, his mentor Agent Six, the brilliant Dr. Holiday and Noah, a regular kid and Rex’s friend.
On the heels of last year’s series debut on Cartoon Network, during which it was a top rated show for both boys 6-11 and kids 9-14, the Generator Rex animated series has launched a brand new season during Cartoon Network’s action block on Friday nights at 8pm (ET/PT). Along with this broadcast debut, global toymaker Mattel has created a full line of toys based on the series’ main character, 15-year-old Rex that is currently available wherever toys are sold.
