Taffy A Brand New Show Coming To Boomerang Late 2018

Taffy A Brand New Show Coming To Boomerang Late 2018

Taffy A Brand New Show Coming To Boomerang Late 2018

Today (13/02/2017), Turner has announced that they are partnering with French animation studio – Cyber Group Studios to produce a brand-new animated co-production called “Taffy”. The new show will air on Boomerang’s international feeds, alongside other content on the channel such as classics and modern remakes of Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and Looney Tunes. In Taffy, a billionaire old lady named Mrs Muchmore takes in a raccoon imposter posing as a cat named Taffy, this leads to slapstick mayhem for Mrs. Muchmore’s pet dog – Bentley.

In each episode, Bentley tries to expose Taffy for what he is, but Taffy outsmarts him on his every move and causes nothing but chaos and disaster in the process. As a result of the mess, poor Bentley always gets the blame. Both Taffy and Bentley live a luxurious lifestyle in a large mansion, they travel around the world and meet important people – including the President of the United States, but no matter where they go and who they meet won’t stop their endless battle.

The animated show shares many similarities to Boomerang’s Tom and Jerry and Oggy and the Cockroaches (airs on Turner’s kids channels in Asia-Pacific) because of the slapstick humour and also another French animated show called Zip Zip partly because of the “pet in disguise” part of the show’s premise.

Initially, 78 episodes will be produced and each episode will be 7 minutes long. The show will be produced by Cyber Group Studios in France and will air on Boomerang in late 2018. Cyber Group Studios is known for the 3D CGI pre-school show – Zou which airs on many Disney Junior feeds in Europe and Latin America.

From The Official Turner International Press Release: Turner and Cyber Group Studios Announce New Co-production “Taffy” For Boomerang International

Turner International and Cyber Group Studios have joined forces to create a brand-new animated series, currently entitled Taffy, for Turner’s second flagship kids’ channel Boomerang across international markets.

Based on an original creation from Cyber Group Studios and developed with Turner, Taffy follows the non-stop, slapstick extravaganza faced by loyal hound dog Bentley when his billionaire old lady owner Mrs Muchmore takes in an imposter posing as wide-eyed, fluffy angora cat. Each instalment sees Bentley try to reveal “Taffy” for the vermin he is – while super-clever Taffy handily frames the dog for every one of his exploits, pillagings and disastrous messes. Whether traveling from Mrs Muchmore’s luxurious mansion, to a five-star cruise, to jet-setting international adventures or a visit with the President, wherever these rivals go, mayhem is sure to follow!

The 78 x 7-minute series, which will be produced in France, will join Boomerang’s line-up of funny, multi-generational shows like Tom & Jerry, Scooby-Doo, Mr Bean: The Animated Series and Grizzy & the Lemmings from Q4 2018.

Cecilia Persson, Turner’s Vice President of Programming and Content Strategy Kids EMEA & International Kids Acquisitions and Co-Productions said:

“With its classic-look animation style and timeless, slapstick humour, Taffy couldn’t be a more perfect fit for Boomerang. We’re very excited to be working with Cyber Group Studios to produce the show, and further our efforts to build Boomerang as a second flagship kids channel with a strong and refreshing pipeline of content.”

Pierre Sissmann, Chairman & CEO, Cyber Group Studios commented:

“It is an honour and a thrill for the Cyber Group Studios team of artists and authors to be working alongside the Turner International team to develop a new series for Boomerang and I hope this idea we had, Mike de Seve of Baboon Animation and myself, a couple of years ago, of creating this new slapstick character of TAFFY, will become a great addition to the cartoon line up of one of the most prestigious cartoon channels in the world.”
