HTML: The Animated Series, often shortened to HTML: TAS, is an American animated miniseries created by KM, produced by KM Publishing, and airs on KM TV. HTML: The Animated Series draws much of its inspiration from 1980s American culture, and is set in 1984 in a fictional city in Florida called Malware City, which is modeled after Miami and New Orleans. The visual style of animation used in the show is "Dark Deco," which originated from Batman: The Animated Series. HTML: TAS features a strong musical score written by several different composers throughout the course of the series, intended to match the 1980s feel. The show is related to The Rejects and Sugarboy.



Bobby is an incompetent failed marketer and inventor, who is just trying to make it big and be successful. After recently getting fired from Spyware Industries, Bobby decides to scrap all his projects but one: a data storage device called the USB flash drive. After testing the device on his Macintosh 128K, the device instead extracts much secluded and reclusive data, eventually delving into the World Wide Web and extracting W3 Source from his home.

Both surprised and confused, Bobby intends to use his device for profit but is surprised to see it destroyed. W3 Source must now unfortunately adjust to the modern 1980s culture with the help of the worthless Bobby.
