We have limited info on StuGo, but that has not stopped us before from making our prediction on if we think this Disney Channel show will be a hit or a miss. So let us start with the animation style, and while we don’t have any current video, we do have a still of the characters that we can look at. We do wish we had some of the background stills, but based on the character design we are onboard with the style, specifically Merian and Dr. Lullah look like they will be fun.
The story of StuGo sounds awesome as we have six middle school kids are tricked into going to a summer camp that is run by a mad scientist, we wonder if that is Dr. Lullah? These kids are now stuck on this island for the summer with all sort of animals, mutants and let us say monsters as maybe book learning is not what they really need to survive. So we wonder about a few things, stuck here for the summer, tricked into going, what does that mean for the show? Is this going to be a one season series or will it morph into something else. You know us, we are all behind a completed story, but then again, Gravity Falls was just for a summer and still stuck around for a few seasons. So story, check, characters, check, animation no idea, and background no idea, we really wish we say even a still background to get more of a feel for the show. We just can’t call it a hit just yet, need to see at trailer, but stay tuned as we continue to watch and see if this turns into battle royale.

“StuGo” is an original animated series about six overambitious middle schoolers who are tricked into attending a fake academic summer camp by a mad scientist. Now they’re stuck for three months on a wild tropical island with mind-reading manatees, giant fighting fungi and fashion-forward mutants ― less academia than they’d hoped for, but a lot more adventure.
The newly announced cast includes Tania Gunadi as Pliny, Zosia Mamet as Merian, Gabourey Sidibe as Francis, Charlyne Yi as Larry, Zach Reino as Chip, Deborah Baker Jr. as Sara, and Lorraine Toussaint as Dr. Lullah.
