The first episode of animated series Super Science Friends! has been presented to the viewers. The protagonists are physicist Albert Einstein, scientist and naturalist Charles Darwin, inventor Nikola Tesla, chemist Marie Sklodowska-Curie, psychologist Sigmund Freud, the world’s first chemist and perfumer Tapputi, and Z3 – a talking computer manufactured in 1941.

Each hero has their own super ability. Freud controls people through hypnosis and makes them kiss each other, Darwin transforms into animals, Marie Curie strikes enemies with radiation, Einstein moves quickly, Tesla controls electricity, and Tapputi seduces men with odors.

Studio Tinman has collected money for this series through Kickstarter – a platform on which projects are funded by ordinary people who become interested in the idea and decide to support it – in November 2014. The amount collected was 4,000 dollars more than the 25,000 initially required by the company.
