Cartoon Network Latin America Greenlights The Legend of Zeta And Ozz Animated Shorts Series

After the events of MIPJunior from over the weekend (14/10/2017 – 15/10/2017) and on the first day of MIPCOM which is today (16/10/2017), Cartoon Network Latin America has announced that they’ve greenlit another animated shorts series called – “The Legend of Zeta & Ozz”. The series will be produced by a combined effort of three different Chile-based animation studios – Punk Robot, Niño Viejo and Typpo. The addition of The Legend of Zeta & Ozz follows other recent animated projects by Cartoon Network Latin America including Oswaldo, Jorel’s Brother, Viking Tales and Villainous.

The new series tells the story of a friendship between a fox with an egotistical attitude and an enthusiastic but childish bear. Both Zeta and Ozz want to be immortalised as legends by attempting ridiculous challenges, but they always fall short of their dreams. Despite not being up to the mark, they still have fun during their surreal adventures while traveling in their van across the continent of “Golden Moon”.

The Legend of Zeta & Ozz was the Winner of the “Best TV Series Project” Disney Award at the MIFA Pitching Sessions, Annecy Animation Festival and Market in 2015. There will be episodes with various lengths of runtime, there will be 39 episodes that will be 7 minutes long, 10 episodes that will be 3 minutes long and ten episodes that will be 15 seconds long, the new show is already in production and will air on Cartoon Network feeds in the Latin American region and digital shorts will also appear on Cartoon Network’s multiscreen services in the region, for example – Cartoon Network Anything.

Punk Robot became the first ever Latin American animation company to win an Oscar, the studio won an Oscar for the short animated film “Bear Story” at last year’s Oscars ceremony. Niño Viejo (literally means “Old Child” in Spanish), is a Santiago based animation studio and has worked on many TV shows and short films, the director of Niño Viejo’s “Sing with Meaning: A Violeta Parra Biography” – Leo Beltrán will be working as the project director for The Legend of Zeta & Ozz.

According to Leo Beltrán, the show is aimed for boys and girls and it will be fast-paced, the show’s storyline isn’t predictable and it’s influenced by comic-book style storytelling and the show’s artwork will feature a palette of highly-defined colours.

While Punk Robot and Niño Viejo will be specialising in animation, Typpo Creative Lab will be working on the show’s script, the company has worked with several studios and projects, including a few productions of their own.

The scriptwriter for the new series – Bambü Orellana said “The Legend of Zeta & Ozz seeks to tell a story that, while superficially about competitiveness, ego-centrism and giving out nicknames, deep down it’s about two best friends who do whatever it takes to have fun together”

In an statement from Pato Escala, executive producer at Punkrobot Studio he added: “This project is a great challenge for us and we are happy to have Cartoon Network Latin America’s creative support. We want to develop a project that will make Latin American animation proud around the world.”

Hernán La Greca, the senior director of original production for Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Tooncast Latin America also commented: “We are thrilled to work on this new project with talented people that put so much love in the product. This new co-production in Chile confirms our ongoing commitment to foster local animation in Latin America.”

Description of The Legend of Zeta & Ozz from Typpo’s Website:

Zeta and Ozz are the bestest of best friends, a couple of party dudes and extreme showoffs trying to show the world how awesome they are at everything. Zeta is a super egocentric fox and Ozz a totally childish bear. Together they travel in their van all over the fantastic mega continent of “Golden Moon”, having fun and turning every little thing into a challenge they must win.

TV SERIES

“The Legend of Zeta & Ozz” has 7-minute long episodes for TV, in each of them they’ll stop their traveling and find a new ridiculous self-imposed challenge to overcome; they might try to prove they have the best handshake in the world and accidentally discover an ultra-secret greeting that opens a portal to another dimension and have to face the god of all greetings; or maybe they’ll find a mug in the desert labeled “Best Boss Ever” and fight over who of them deserves it; or even just find out you can’t sneeze with your eyes open and being determined to be the first ones to make it.

DIGITAL SHORTS

These little stories come in two lengths, 3 minutes and 15 seconds.

The first ones focus on Zeta and Ozz’s never ending road trip; we’ll see things like how they take turns driving, stop to go to the bathroom, fight over who gets to play his music on the radio or start a forest fire trying to cook some hotdogs.

The shortest ones are just little gags focusing on their kind of mean but super loving relationship.

OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes New Show Premieres On Cartoon Network UK Tomorrow 9th October

Tomorrow (09/10/2017) at 6.30pm, Cartoon Network UK will be premiering Cartoon Network Studios’ latest show – OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes. The show is created by the former supervising director of Steven Universe – Ian Jones-Quartey. OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is an animated action-comedy about the show’s titular character – a young boy named K.O. who has the aspiration to become the world’s greatest hero. In order to achieve his goal he’ll have to “level up”, his optimism gives him the drive he needs and having that kind of attitude is half the battle. K.O. meets his new friends – Rad and Enid at his new job at Gar’s Bodega and Hero Supply. Gar’s Bodega is located Lakewood Plaza Turbo, a shopping centre that is under constant attack by robots coming from the Boxmore factory from over the street, which is and owned and ran by the plaza’s main antagonist and business rival – Lord Boxman.

K.O. is a very helpful and cheerful kid and would do anything to protect his friends and the plaza, although he hasn’t got the strength to do so yet, he certainly has the determination, courage (and wackiness) to do so. The show is inspired by video games especially beat-em’-ups and RPG’s, also a brand new OK K.O. video game called OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes will soon be released for PlayStation 4, XBOX One and PC.
