Toontorial Premieres On Cartoon Network Latin America’s YouTube Channel On 20th October

This Saturday (20th October) at 10am, Cartoon Network Latin America’s YouTube channel will premiere their newest animated short series – Toontorial. Toontorial features humorous animated tutorials for simple everyday tasks but with ridiculously nonsensical and unnecessary instructions, an given example is finding a cyclops to open a can of beans or how to take care of a pet if it’s a dinosaur, or even how to pack battle-axe in a bag. The brand new animated shorts series is created by Axur Eneas made by Mexico City-based stop-motion animation studio – Cinema Fantasma. Toontorial was originally going to premiere on Cartoon Network Latin America’s YouTube channel on 6th October.

Toontorial was the winning project from Cartoon Network’s pitching competition at Pixelatl 2017 – Pitch Me Evolution. Axur Eneas was inspired by how-to tutorial videos on YouTube and guides on Wikihow and is a parody based on his own experiences of when learning basic tasks. Axur is inspired by animated shows featuring mixed-media for example – Cartoon Network’s The Amazing World of Gumball or Nickelodeon’s Kablam!, he approached Roy and Arturo Ambriz at Cinema Fantasma to help produce the stop-motion element of his new series. Cinema Fantasma previously produced six stop-motion short films for Cartoon Network Latin America featuring characters from Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, The Amazing World of Gumball, Uncle Grandpa and Clarence, the short films have been used as fillers between shows on the Cartoon Network Latin America television channel.

For the short-form animated series, Axur does script-writing, character design, storyboard, animatics, all the 2d animation, puppet designs and editing on his own, but he made sure that the main character of Toontorial has a simplistic design so he can focus more on the other aspects of production. In addition to the shorts, Cartoon Network Latin America has been uploading Toontorial comic strips on social media.

Earlier this year, Axur and Studio Fantasma finished production on the pilot, which was funded by the $7,500 USD cash prize from the Pitch Me Evolution pitching competition, earlier this year, both signed a contract with Cartoon Network for a 16-episode first season, with new episodes premiering every two weeks, Auxr was surprised by this, as he was only expected to make ten episodes.

Cartoon Network UK 25th Anniversary: Previous Birthday Celebrations

Cartoon Network UK 25th Anniversary: Previous Birthday Celebrations

Cartoon Network UK 25th Anniversary: Previous Birthday Celebrations

Today (17th September) is Cartoon Network UK’s (originally launched as Cartoon Network Europe) 25th Birthday, so here’s a brief overview of the channel’s previous birthday milestones.

Cartoon Network UK’s 10th Birthday

Cartoon Network UK 10th Birthday

In 2003, Cartoon Network UK celebrated its 10th birthday, during this era, Cartoon Network Europe co-production – The Cramp Twins was airing on the channel (hence the logo featuring Wayne Cramp swapping the letter around on the logo). During this time, Cartoon Network invested a yearly average of $100 million in animated productions around the world, which mostly included the United States and Europe. At this point in its history, the channel was UK’s number one commercial channel for children aged between 4 to 9 years old. For the 10th Anniversary, the channel had a special competition, also during that September, Codename: Kids Next Door premiered.

Cartoon Network UK’s 18th Birthday

A few days before Cartoon Network UK’s 18th Birthday in 2011 (14th September) – a HD version of the channel – Cartoon Network HD launched, the night schedule also featured classic Cartoon Cartoons from the late 1990’s to early 2000’s. During this era, The Amazing World of Gumball was a brand new show and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien was airing, this was also during Regular Show’s and Adventure Time’s early days.

Cartoon Network UK’s 20th Birthday

In 2013, Cartoon Network UK celebrated its 20th Birthday, on the Cartoon Network UK website there were puzzles and activities and an animated DOG (digital originated graphic) on the channel.

My Opinion on Cartoon Network UK’s 25th Birthday

I think its great that CN UK has celebrated its 25th Birthday with a party and will have a special screening at BAFTA in London in a less than a couple of weeks time plus some clips of CN classics on YouTube, but I’m disappointed that there’s no celebrations on the actual channel, this is nowhere near compared to the amazing effort Cartoon Network Latin America has done for their 25th Birthday a few months ago and at least CN USA aired a special ident for their 25th Birthday last October, which CN UK could of aired. I’m aware that unlike Latin America, the European market is a lot more fragmented, and different versions of CN will have their birthdays at different times, but this could of been more of an European effort and not just a UK one, as most of Europe had the original pan-European version since the very beginning. Nickelodeon UK also celebrated their 25th birthday this month and had no celebrations on the channel.

In Latin America particularly, the channel has very high viewership, but meanwhile in Britain there’s a lot more competition in the children’s broadcasting sector than there used to be (especially FTA channels such as CBBC, CITV and POP) and the amount of children’s channels is disproportionately high compared other developed nations, but in pay-TV terms and according to BARB statistics, CN UK still holds up against Nickelodeon and Disney Channel.
