Yam Roll

Yam Roll

The Very Good Adventures of Yam Roll in Happy Kingdom is an entertaining and offbeat account of the love-struck, sushi super-hero, Yam Roll, a good-natured yet misguided, cowboy-clad, taxi-driving piece of tempura yam maki, who resides in a land called 'Happy Kingdom'. Featuring a kooky cast of animated sushi-inspired characters, Yam Roll is the creation of Vancouver artist Jon Izen, Jono Howard and Dan Sioui. Originally from Vancouver, and now based out of March Entertainment's Sudbury, Ontario animation and production facility, Izen is renowned in animation and alternative art circles. In 2005, the dynamic trio of Izen, Howard and Sioul teamed up with March Entertainment to produce a short Yam Roll episode for CBC's animated idol-type competition, Maple Shorts. The short ended up winning the competition. A sushi superhero was born.
