Boomerang UK Promotes Top Cat Begins Movie

Boomerang UK has launched a microsite to promote the new Top Cat movie: Top Cat Begins. Top Cat: Begins is a prequel to both the 2011 animated movie and the animated series of the same name. The film goes into the details on how Top Cat, the yellow charismatic trickster alley cat, first met up with Benny and how the gang got together. Unlike its theatrical prequel (made with Adobe Flash), this film is made in CGI (computer-generated imagery). On the microsite on the Boomerang UK website, there’s an opportunity to win an iPad. In order to enter the competition, just play the Pal-Alley Pickup game. In order to play the game, use your mouse to get everyone in Top Cat’s gang but make sure to avoid Officer Dibble and the bad guys. Competition ends on Friday 10th June.

Top Cat Begins will be released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 27th May.

Also in other Top Cat related news, Warner Bros. and UK’s Halifax Bank have teamed up for an advertising campaign featuring the indisputable leader of the gang himself, the ad made its UK television debut on Friday 22th April. For the time being, Top Cat will act as a temporary “mascot” for the bank.
