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.

Taking down Taffy (52×7′ 2D HD), its first full 2D cartoon comedy in coproduction with Turner.

Aimed at children from 6 to 12-year-old children, this animation and comedy series tells the story of Mrs. Muchmore and her beloved dog Bentley, who live a delightful life in their manor until the arrival of Taffy, a raccoon that is able to disguise himself into a cat. Mrs. Muchmore gets so fond of Taffy that she decides to have him in her Manor. But Bentley is no dummy and knows instantly that Taffy is not a cat. He’ll stop at nothing to take down the intruder!

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.”

In the middle of the Canadian wilderness, there is a haven of human civilisation – a forest ranger’s house, which has been left empty.
Being top of the food chain, GRIZZY, makes himself at home, enjoying modern luxuries from air con and home cinema to a sauna and internet connection! Naturally, no animal dares to contest this bear’s privilege…except only the most ridiculous mammal family, THE LEMMINGS! For these guys, they have stumbled into an entertainment park and embark on making Grizzy’s retreat as painful as possible. Even for a bear who weighs 500 pounds and stands seven feet tall, it’s not that easy to get rid of these fur balls who have the I.Q. of a pea! Plus, there is strength in their numbers… Witness an atmosphere of total madness, where the rivals constantly try to outsmart each other with their cheeky plans!

The Happos Family

Starts Saturday 7th January Saturdays at 8am.

The Happos Family live in an enclosure in a European safari park. In the morning the park is open to human visitors who drive past the Happos, taking pictures of them wallowing in the mud, lazing by the pool, sleeping in the shade of the tree. But when the last car races out of the safari park and the gates are shut to all visitors, the Happos jump up out of the mud, wake up from their snoozing and get dressed up. It’s now their time for crazy, zany, Happo adventures. Each of the twenty episodes is centred around one of the ten costumed Happos. Whether its Astro Happo longing to fly to the moon or Stunt Happo attempting a daredevil feat or Party Happo in a dance off with Ballerina and Bollywood, each storyline is laugh out loud visual slap stick comedy with heart.

On any given night, they might find themselves confronting a ghostly alligator busting its way through the building’s pipes, or sinister “spider lambs” invading Mina’s room.
