Cartoon Network USA Apple And Onion And Bottom’s Butte Pilots

Cartoon Network USA have uploaded two animated pilots from their Studios’ Artist Programme on to their website. One of the animated pilots is called Apple and Onion created by George Gendi, known for his storyboard artist work on Great Marlborough Productions’ The Amazing World of Gumball. Apple and Onion tells the story of two friends in the big city, in a world inhabited by anthropomorphic food. In this pilot, Apple and Onion get invited to Hotdog’s party, but they find they’ve still got some growing up to do.

The other animated short is called Bottom’s Butte which was created by Minty Lewis, known for her work as a storyboard artist and the voice of Eileen on Cartoon Network Studios’ Regular Show. Bottom’s Butte is about an impulsive alpaca named Beverly who breaks everyone’s favorite pool entertainment system during a botched waterslide maneuver. Beverly and her super-chill best friend, Peanette, will go to any lengths to get it up and running again.

Turner Q&A With Powerpuff Girls Executive Producers Nick Jennings And Bob Boyle

Last Friday (18/03/2016), the executive producers of the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls, Nick Jennings And Bob Boyle did a Q&A with Turner’s press office. In the Q&A, it was mentioned that the reason why Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup were re-casted and why they didn’t use the original voice actors (Cathy Cavadini, Tara Strong and E. G. Daily) was “to infuse a new tone and energy” in the rebooted series. Both Nick Jennings and Bob Boyle later explained that Amanda Leighton, Natalie Palamides and Kristen Li were offering that kind of new energy to the series and their personalities matched the personalities of their respective characters.

During the Q&A it was revealed that the first season will consist of forty eleven-minute episodes and production staff are working on twelve episodes at one time with scripts and storyboards being finalised every week.
