Rovio has long been threatening to bring Angry Birds into other media, and this weekend they’re finally doing it — kind of. Angry Birds Toons is a brand new cartoon series featuring none other than the frustrated fowl that iOS gamers have known and loved for so long. But you won’t find it on a TV station or in a movie theater: Instead, the cartoon is premiering inside the Angry Birds apps, so if you have any of them installed, you can jump in and you’ll be able to watch the series starting this weekend.

Why are the birds so angry? Why do the pigs love the eggs so much? Rovio promises this series will answer all of those pressing questions fans of this game may or may not have. We have one of our own, however: Will iOS players ever get tired of tossing birds into badly-built structures? We may need more than a cartoon series to get an answer to that one.

Angry Birds Toons premiering this weekend in Angry Birds apps originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Fri, 15 Mar 2013 20:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
