I know we have a couple of Ninjas here that can’t get enough of Angry Birds, and soon we can get our fix on TV! According to CNN Mikael Hed CEO of Rovio Mobile has said that a cartoon based on the popular Android and iPhone game is in the works.

“We have been looking at that for quite a while, and that is definitely one of my personal big focus areas right now — to work on broadcast content for ‘Angry Birds,’ “

Talk about awesome! Rovio is also already in talks with Mattel to make a board game as well and of course the plush toys we all love are still being pushed out in mass!
