. "We believe the Internet could very well prove to be one of the most exciting platforms for entertainment distribution," said Dave Sproxton, co-founder and managing director of Aardman. "And we're delighted to be working with AtomFilms again to bring this to the web audience worldwide." Michael Comish, managing director, AtomFilms Europe said, "The work we are doing with Aardman shows what the Internet can offer in terms of an entertainment experience in the future. TV and cinemas limit when and how you watch quality entertainment. The Internet is overcoming these obstacles. By releasing this primarily over the Internet, a potential audience of hundreds of millions of people across the world can enjoy each of Aardman's ANGRY KID episodes the moment they are released." The remaining 24 episodes will go live at regular intervals over the forthcoming weeks. Each of the 25 episodes will be downloadable as a Quicktime Movie.
