Cartoon Network UK The Amazing World Of Gumball Exclusive Screening Competition

Cartoon Network UK is having a competition giveaway for tickets for an exclusive screening of Cartoon Network’s BAFTA award winning show – The Amazing World of Gumball. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with three of the main people behind the production of the show – the show’s creator – Ben Bocquelet, the show’s director – Mic Graves and executive producer Sarah Fell. The screening will be held at BAFTA Piccadilly in London on Saturday 29th April at 11am, each of the three winners will receive four tickets each.

The Amazing World of Gumball follows the misadventures of the titular character – Gumball, a blue cat and his adoptive goldfish brother – Darwin, who live in the city of Elmore, a strange but wonderful town inhabited by unusual looking anthromorphic characters ranging from antlered peanuts, ghosts, bananas, clouds, robots, dinosaurs and many more. Both Gumball and Darwin live with their workaholic mother – Nicole, a lazy but loving stay-at-home rabbit dad – Richard, who often gets involved in Gumball’s mishaps and their younger and significantly smarter sister – Anais, who has a knack for problem solving, ideal for when Gumball gets into tricky and hilarious situations. The show is made by Great Marlborough Productions – Cartoon Network’s London-based animation studio and features a mix of 2D and 3D CGI characters and photographic backgrounds.
