SecondSun To Animate Heathcliff The Cat In 3D

SecondSun Entertainment plans to add new dimensions to Heathcliff the cat, when they re-launch the feline in 3D on two direct-to-video releases. Together with Los Angeles partners Pterodactyl/Kew Productions (P/K), SecondSun plans to begin production on the feature length videos later in 2002. P/K writer/producers Barney Cohen and Kathryn Wallack (SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH) will be responsible for updating Heathcliff's style, while Aaron L. Gilbert, will executive produce and spearhead the initial licensing and re-branding the HEATHCLIFF franchise. HEATHCLIFF was created by George Gately as a comic strip in 1973 and at its peak, appeared in over 1,000 newspapers around the world. HEATHCLIFF later appeared on a TV series, home video releases and substantial merchandising and licensing worldwide.
