Aero the Acro-Bat is an American animated television series based on the video game series of the same name. It was produced by Universal Cartoon Studios and Sunsoft of America. It was initially broadcast on Fox Kids from August 1995 to November 1998.

Plot

The first season primarily follows the plot of the first game in the series with several modifications to pad out the story into 30 episodes. Aero, a cocky yet fearless teenage bat, is set out to save his traveling circus home from being destroyed by ex-circus owner, Edgar Ektor. Some episodes are more focused on developing Aero and his friends as characters, being heavier on the comedic tones than other episodes. These lighter episodes also serve to explore the origins of him, his older sister, Ariel, as well as a band of acrobatic bats called The Flying Pepperonis, who have previously only appeared briefly in the second game.

Aero is done performing an act in the cartoon.

The second season picks up where the first game left off, following the storyline of Aero the Acro-Bat 2. Aero embarks on a journey around the world through a mysterious teleporting box found in Ektor's museum, eventually being lead by a girl named Batasha, encountering dangerous locations along the way.

The fifth and final season serves as an epilogue to the second game with most episodes focusing on where the characters have ended up since the defeat of Edgar Ektor. The show was completed after Aero had children with his future wife.

The setting of the circus is established as a futuristic company travelling through the air via a series of connected airships. As a result, many episodes take place in a variety of locations around the world, from the American countryside to Japan, each location being different every few episodes. The ringleader, a recurring character in the series, revealed early in the first season that this form of travel was created for the purpose of escaping Ektor's takeover attempts. This was rendered useless when Zero built Ektor's flying machine towards the end of the season, officially starting the story of the first game.

Characters

A majority of the main characters were directly taken from Aero the Acro-Bat, its sequel, and Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel. A variety of secondary characters, however, are exclusive to the cartoon series.
