Cartoon Network Philippines New Generations Research Findings

In a Philippine Daily Inquirer news article with David Webb, Turner Asia Pacific’s regional director of research, some interesting facts about Cartoon Network’s, Boomerang’s and Toonami’s audiences in the Philippines were mentioned. In the article, Mr Webb said that Filipinos understand English and western humour and Cartoon Network is the number one kids channel in the country, he also mentioned that Cartoon Network is a top five channel in the Manila (the country’s capital) metropolitan area.

Cartoon Network surveyed 500 child-parent pairs for an insight into kids’ entertainment preferences in a research survey called “New Generations”, research has found that kids in the country still prefer to watch TV compared to spending time on the internet. According to parents, TV is considered to be a trusted source of entertainment when compared to social media and online video services. However, there has been a sharp increase of children watching videos online, the popularity of mobile apps and games among children have also increased. As a result of the increase in usage of mobile apps, Turner will continue to invest in more multiplatform content.

According to the survey, the most popular Cartoon Network shows in the Philippines are Ben 10 and The Powerpuff Girls. The most popular Boomerang shows are Tom and Jerry and Scooby-Doo! and on Toonami, the most popular shows are Yo-Kai Watch and Dragon Ball Super.

David Webb also stated that Cartoon Network has stayed true to the channel’s original purpose – animated comedy and the company will adapt to any changes in audience behavior:

“It has stayed true to its brand promise for more than 20 years—delivering hilarious, animated comedy that is guaranteed to surprise and entertain. While [our study] discovers changes in behavior and media habits, the style of our fun content will never change.”

Hosted in partnership with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), and supported by StarHub, Imagination Studios comprises an industry workshop on Friday, April 21, and a workshop for children on Saturday, April 22. The events will be held at PIXEL Studios, a dedicated facility launched by IMDA last year to spur Singapore’s next generation of digital content creators.

Both events will be fronted by highly talented animator, Daniel Chong – creator and executive producer of Cartoon Network’s hit comedy, We Bare Bears. After building a successful career in Burbank, California, Daniel will speak about his journey as an artist and the process behind creating one of the hottest animated series.

“Imagination Studios will not only help us to provide a platform to those who are interested in animation, but will also look to inspire passion in future animators too. There is a strong pool of talent in Singapore and we are dedicated to working closely with industry leaders such as IMDA and StarHub to offer them new opportunities and direction. To complement Cartoon Network’s global artist and international shorts programmes, this event is also a great way for us to connect with our viewers, and show them how some of the best animated content is made,” said Mark Eyers, Chief Content Officer for Turner’s Kids Networks in Asia Pacific.

“IMDA is excited to partner Turner’s Cartoon Network to give Singapore talent the opportunity to unleash their imagination and creativity, to learn from and be inspired by artists like Daniel Chong.
