Interview Summary

According to show’s creators, the brand new show is an adventure in a fairytale world with a small and cosy feeling, as the show is made in Denmark, the location and feel were heavily inspired by Scandinavian nature, culture and humor. Much like a forest in Scandinavia, the forest in the show is more closed and denser and in the show each part of the forest is inhabited by strange creatures. The creators explain that Europeans have a different point of view due to different influences in their lives, including reading different children’s books and watching different shows and films.

The show features 2D characters set against a backdrop of real-life miniature sets, mostly made from natural materials like twigs and herbs. The main reason why natural materials were used is to get a more natural fairy-tale like effect with lighting, shadow and depth. The show is mostly drawn in Flash, but there’s hand-drawn animation too and even puppets.

Both Christian Bøving-Andersen and Eva Lee Wallberg pitched their idea for “Ivandoe” while working on The Amazing World of Gumball at Cartoon Network’s studio in London and Cartoon Network EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) were interested as they were looking for new short form content, the creators also pitched six other show ideas before Ivandoe, although they weren’t successful pitches, the show creators didn’t think the pitches were a waste of time because it helped to develop their Ivandoe pitch idea.

While making the show, the creators felt they had a lot of creative freedom and Cartoon Network executives only interfered on a few script ideas, but the channel was willing to settle on a compromise. Ivandoe had a production team of fifty people, which were based at Sun Creature Studio in Copenhagen, people were hired based on their enthusiasm for the project and also for their sense of humour and artists provided input on how the show would look like.
