Villainous First Ever Short Form Show From Cartoon Network Mexico

Last week (08/09/2016), Cartoon Network Mexico announced that they have greenlit their first ever short-form animated show during a session at the Pixelatl Animation, Video Games and Comics Convention in Cuernavaca (near Mexico City). The new animated show is called “Villainous” and is created by Alan Ituriel, known for his production work on the 2011 film – Top Cat: The Movie. The short-form show has been specially developed for the Cartoon Network Anything app.

Hernán La Greca (Senior Creative Director for Cartoon Network Latin America), Jaime Jiménez (Senior Content Manager for Cartoon Network Mexico) and Humberto Cervera (Original Productions in Spanish, Cartoon Network Mexico) also attended the Villainous! session at the festival and also offered potential show creators an opportunity to pitch their ideas to them. In 2015, Cartoon Network opened an office in Mexico City specifically to receive and develop ideas and projects from Mexican artists.

Information about the show’s characters have been posted on the internet, but nothing has been officially posted by Cartoon Network yet, I will keep you informed when more information about the show has been officially released.

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.
