Angry Birds animated series coming to a smartphone near you
Chances are that unless you live on a tree in the jungle, you know what Angry Birds is. Regarded as the most popular video game in recent history, the franchise's success has spawned a whole lineup of toys, apparel, and even lead to the opening of a theme park in China.

And do you know what the next big thing in the Angry Birds universe will be? An animated Angry Birds series, of course! "We're going to roll out a weekly animation series later this year of shortform content," said Nick Dorra, Rovio's head of animation, while speaking at the MIPTV conference in Cannes.

52 episodes lasting between two and three minutes each are planned to be released weekly on a multitude of platforms. Starting this fall, users will be able to watch them on their smartphones with a dedicated mobile application, but the series is expected to land on smart TVs as well. Oh, and if you are wondering what happened with that feature length Angry Birds movie, don't worry as it will be released eventually. However, that is not expected to happen until 2014, and who knows whether anyone will still be launching birds at pigs by then.

...and each episode will feature ads which completely obscure the upper right corner of the screen.

Come on PA. Short clips of Angry Birds has been playing during Sponge Bob episodes starting about a month ago. Your talking like it hasn't happened yet. This is the same as the Simpsons started as a quick skit on a comedy show and turned into it's own show.

Any of us that has kids realize the money they are making. Angry birds is HUGE among kids.

I just don't know what the big deal is about Angry Birds. I downloaded it on my Nook,played it a couple of times then quickly removed it. I just don't get it,it's simply another slingshot game.
