The characters and storyline in this motion picture were to have been the basis for a new animated series for Spike TV, which was to have debuted in August 2004;[1] however, despite scheduling a two-hour marathon of the series on its premiere and an order of six episodes, the series never aired, due to the decline of the Spike TV animation block. It was later compiled into a film and released in October 2008 in Hungary.

The film was released on a Region 1 DVD in 2009 by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment.
