Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 01, 2011
Toonzone Studios is proud to announce its flagship show “YooHoo & Friends” (52 x 11 min.) has been acquired by Cartoon Network Latin America, and will begin airing in 2012.
This eco‐adventure series, produced by Toonzone Studios and financed by ADC Licensing, follows five, cute‐as‐can‐be, furry‐tailed heroes who are on a global quest to save the planet from a series of wacky eco‐disasters, which were caused by their unenlightened former human selves. Each of the loveable YooHoos is inspired by a real life endangered species from around the globe. Roodee the inventor, Chewoo the cheerleader, Lemmee the sourpuss, Pammee the princess and their leader YooHoo are rewarded with special precious gems planted around the planet by the show’s host, Father Time himself. The ultimate collection of these gems could mean the reversal of centuries of destruction. So it's up to the furry five to fix the world, find the gems, and of course have tons of fun all along the way.
This series is created and produced by Toonzone’s David Feiss, award winning creator of such series as “Cow and Chicken” and “I Am Weasel.” It is also written by Thomas Krajewski, Emmy‐nominated writer for Nickelodeon's "The Fairly Odd parents" and art directed by Deane Taylor from “Nightmare Before Christmas.”
