For those of you who are Smallville fans you may be interested in this new animated series:

Smallville Legends: The Oliver Queen Chronicles

This new animated series debuted on January 18th as part of a marketing campaign between Warner Bros and Sprint. Here is the most interesting part: The series is available exclusively for your cell phone!

Here is a clip from the press release:

"Smallville Legends: The Oliver Queen Chronicles," a six-episode animated wireless series created for the mobile and broadband environment, will premiere Thursday, January 18, exclusively on the Sprint TVSM mobile video service. A new episode will launch on subsequent Thursdays and remain exclusive to Sprint for the six-week duration of the series. After Sprint's exclusive window, the entire wireless animated series will be available for streaming at, the online home of The CW Network, beginning February 22. The initiative marks the first time Warner Bros. and The CW have created original animated content as a marketing platform to help drive tune-in for the "Smallville" television series.

A stupid idea in my mind seeing that most phone screens have a pretty terrible resolution. I can't imagine that a lot of people will take advantage of this. I'd rather see them on iTunes for my video iPod.

I haven't been watching Smallville for the past couple of seasons so I don't know anything about the Oliver Queen character in the series except that he has become very popular. If he is anything like the Green Arrow from DC Comics then I am sure the animated series will be a huge success. Maybe we can even get a full 30-minute show if this takes off!
