The 60-second shorts are intended to educate watchers and associate the Razer brand with sustainability efforts involving deforestation, overfishing, ocean plastics, and more. The series even has its own theme song.

As if Razer credit cards weren't ridiculous enough, the PC and accessory maker has now expanded into the world of cartoons starring none other than the Razer Sneki Snek mascot itself. The original pilot episode made its debut back in June and it was apparently successful enough to spawn a whole season of shorts spanning six episodes each focusing on a different topic of environmental sustainability.

"It’s our responsibility to ensure that the youth are armed with what they need to defend our planet, as they will be the ones inheriting it," says Razer Chief of Staff Patricia Liu. "So, whether it’s by giving them access to information, or rallying the community through our own sustainability efforts, we hope to inspire the next generation of gamers to join us in the frontier against climate change.” The shorts are being created in partnership with Franklin Templeton with the next five episodes yet to be released.

Razer has been pushing its environmentalism efforts over the past few years in an attempt to look more "green" and environmentally friendly than competitors. The company marketed merchandise not too long ago aimed at funding the recovery of ocean plastics while a separate Sneki Snek Conservation International campaign purportedly saved over 600,000 trees just this past year.

IRVINE, Calif.– Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), today released a new animated series starring none other than Razer’s fan-favorite and sustainability mascot, Sneki Snek. The cartoon aims to educate young Razer fans on environmental issues, and what they can do to live more sustainably, in a series of lighthearted cartoon shorts.

Partnering with Razer to enhance environmental literacy is one of the world’s largest asset managers, Franklin Templeton, who are sponsoring the first season of the show and are contributing to Sneki Snek’s cause to save trees. The show will be streamed across Razer’s social network channels including YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, with new episodes coming out every month. The animated series follows Sneki Snek and his sidekicks on their mission to stop the antagonist, the Hooman, who is constantly hurting the planet.

The first season consists of six bite-sized episodes and will tackle issues such as deforestation, over-fishing, air pollution, upcycling, slash-and-burn farming, and climate change. Viewers will learn about pressing environmental issues and what they can do to make a difference, as Sneki Snek shares advice on how to join the fight against climate change. The integration of environmental and social considerations in entertaining content aims to empower viewers with the practical information they need yet may not have access to.

“We are delighted to partner with Franklin Templeton to bring this animation to life. We are always looking for ways to empower our community, and in this case, knowledge is power,” says, Patricia Liu, Razer’s Chief of Staff. “It’s our responsibility to ensure that the youth are armed with what they need to defend our planet, as they will be the ones inheriting it. So, whether it’s by giving them access to information, or rallying the community through our own sustainability efforts, we hope to inspire the next generation of gamers to join us in the frontier against climate change.”

Last year Razer partnered with Conservation International to save trees through their Sneki Snek campaign. As a part of this partnership, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Sneki Snek eco-merchandise goes towards helping Conservation International save trees. Razer has since then rallied their community by launching a new Sneki Snek product with every 100,000 trees saved and have just celebrated saving 600,000 trees with the latest Sneki Snek Giant Cushion drop. With Franklin Templeton also committing to saving 50,000 trees, the end goal of saving 1 million trees together with the community is drawing even closer.

“We are most pleased to support Razer in its efforts to make the world a better place for all,” said Dora Seow, Country Head for Singapore, Franklin Templeton. “As a global asset management leader, we recognize the need to protect our environment and are committed to reducing our environmental impact. We hope this adorable series will get people thinking about the importance of sustainable living and investing.”

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s.
