Skunk and Panda are joined in their comedic adventures by a gallery of entertaining animal pals - from the combat-ready Rabbit and the skillful Fox to the adroit Turtle and cowardly Tiger. Each does his part to guide Skunk along his hero's journey of enlightenment, usually with amusing results. On the antagonist side of The Valley are Dragon's minions - his lead henchman Baboon and an army of Ninja Monkeys. They stand as equal parts menacing villains and comic foils to Skunk's escapades. The series is a co-production between Cartoon Saloon, Telegael and Hoek, Line and Thinker. Audiovisual rights for SKUNK FU! are being handled worldwide by Cake Distribution.
EON KID brings adventure to the life of Marty, an enterprising 11-year-old who unexpectedly becomes the human extension of the Fist of Eon.

Pursued by the dark armies of The General, Marty must undertake a hero's journey of action, adventure, comedy and self-discovery into an eye-popping world of battle-bots, bounty hunters, legendary warriors and humanoid bandits. The CG series is produced by Daiwon C&A Holdings Co., Design Storm Co., BRB International and Manga Ent., and distributed by Starz Media.
