From The Turner Asia-Pacific Press Release

In March 2016, POPS Worldwide created a historic partnership with Turner Asia Pacific to localize and distribute the kids’ entertainment content of the Boomerang channel on Boomerang Vietnam and POPS Kids.

For the first time, Vietnamese children could easily enjoy the huge international entertaining content repository with lots of attractive and funny animated series of Boomerang with Vietnamese dubbed versions as Tom and Jerry Tales, The Tom and Jerry Show, Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls, What’s New, Scooby Doo?, Duck Dodgers and Baby Looney Tunes.

After three successful phases of airing, Boomerang series are now loved by millions of Vietnamese families. The average number of views for each episode of Scooby-Doo, The Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10 and Tom and Jerry are all between hundred thousand and a million, with many shares and positive comments from kids and parents as well.

This has brought the initial success in the partnership between POPS Worldwide and Turner just after 6 months, Boomerang animated series have reached 200 million views with more than 23 million hours of viewing enjoyment – a spectacular number for kids’ digital entertainment content in Vietnam market at this time.

Over the next few months, the next phase of Boomerang’s catalog will come online with the featured and diversified content from many series such as Dexter’s Laboratory, Mike, Lu, and Og, Life and Times of Juniper Lee, and Chowder. And of course, the same high-quality dubbed versions that Vietnamese digital audiences have come to expect will be launched.

Sharing about the success between POPS Worldwide and Turner, Ms. Esther Nguyen, Founder and CEO of POPS Worldwide said: “We are very happy that the localized Boomerang entertainment is so well received. This gives us further motivation to work hard to bring more iconic premium entertainment to our POPS Kids and Boomerang Vietnam fans.”

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.
