Lasso And Comet Pilot From Cartoon Network Asia-Pacific Now On YouTube

Lasso And Comet Pilot From Cartoon Network Asia-Pacific Now On YouTube

Lasso And Comet Pilot From Cartoon Network Asia-Pacific Now On YouTube

Cartoon Network Southeast Asia has uploaded the pilot episode of Lasso And Comet, the pilot was developed as part of Cartoon Network’s original Australian animation programme for 2016, which was announced in November 2015. The show is about an energetic, rebellious 13-year-old boy named Lasso who wields a magical rope that can be used to catch almost anything and his flying friend named Comet, who’s a blue ball of rock and ice from outer-space who can fly faster than a jet. Together they protect their tropical island home from mysterious gigantic monsters roaming the sea.

In the pilot, Lasso and Comet help to save an island and a fruit seed spreading bird from a giant dinosaur-like sea monster. The pilot reminds me of three Cartoon Network shows both past and present: Mike, Lu and Og for its desert island theme, Steven Universe because of the main character’s special powers and Adventure Time because of the main duo pairing with potential for an expansive environment for future episodes. The same with other recent pilots such as Victor and Valentino and Infinity Train, it’s Cartoon Network decision if they wish to greenlight the show.

Lasso And Comet was written and directed by Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp and was animated by Australian animation studio – Rubber House, known for their animation work for Cartoon Network’s Check It 3.0 rebrand collaboration project in 2013.

Another Australian animated pilot that was developed for Cartoon Network this year was The Sketchy Show. The Sketchy Show is an animated comedy series that takes real kid’s drawings and turns them into hilarious animated shorts, both Boing Spain (Cartoon Network Spain) and Cartoon Network Portugal uploaded a compilation of mini-episodes in October for their local versions of Cartoon Network’s Imagination Studios initiative.
