Entertainment One Family (eOne Family) announced that it has partnered with broadcasters TELETOON Canada and ABC3 Australia to deliver a new 2-D animated series in 2016 of the high energy comedy cartoon series Winston Steinburger and Sir Dudley Ding Dong, developed in collaboration with multi-award winning studio Sticky Pictures.
Olivier Dumont, MD of Entertainment One Family said, “We’re incredibly excited to be working with Sticky Pictures on what we truly believe to be a fantastically funny and inventive TV show that will hit the sweet spot of kids aged 6-12. Securing ABC3 and TELETOON as broadcast partners at this stage in the production is a clear endorsement of the show’s potential and we can’t wait to bring it to TV screens across the world!”
The new 52 X 11’ animated show for 6-12 year olds follows the hilarious hijinks of Winston Steinburger, his feline best friend Sir Dudley and an uptight alien, Hampton, as they explore the galaxy together in a homemade space cruiser seeking out fun adventures. The three astronomical amigos face death on a daily basis, squaring off against bubbling planets, bad-breathed Space-bandits and the worst nemesis of all – Pam the Destroyer – a tweenie bopper with a manic personality, an itchy trigger finger and a mega crush on Winston.
Donna Andrews, CEO and Partner from independent Australian production company Sticky Pictures said, “We love Winston Steinburger! It’s fast, funny and full of cheek. We’ve been delighted by the response so far from ABC3 and TELETOON and we look forward to working closely with eOne Family to produce the series.”
Chris Rose, Commissioning Editor ABC Children's Television comments, “How could we resist the cheeky chap and his two cute pals? And Pam! The high octane scripts are perfect for the ABC3 audience. From the moment we saw the teaser we knew there was something special about this great new show. “
Alan Gregg, Director of Content, TELETOON Canada adds, “We’re thrilled to partner with eOne Family on this irreverent fast-paced, comedy action series. TELETOON viewers will fall out of theirs seats when they finally meet the colourful characters of Winston Steinburger. ”
