Toontorial Panel

Afterwards on Saturday was the Toontorial panel with show creator – Axur Eneas. The show was the winning pitch at last year’s Cartoon Network pitching competition at Pixelatl – Pitch Me Evolution.

The brand new animated shorts series is made by animation studio – Cinema Fantasma. At the panel, it was announced that Toontorial will premiere on Cartoon Network Latin America on Saturday 6th October and a new episode will air every two weeks.
