files/pictures/picture-23.jpgCineGroupe has recently announced that production has started on 26
episodes of WHAT'S WITH ANDY, a new half-hour animated series set to
premier Fall, 2001 on Canada's TELETOON and the Fox Family Channel in
the U.S. The series, based on the "Just
" series of books written by
Andy Griffith, chronicles the life of teenager Andy Larkin, a
self-proclaimed master prankster whose goal is to be the greatest
practical joker in the world, though his schemes backfire every time.
Realized primarily in 2D animation, the series also incorporates a
black and white story-telling style dubbed "Doodle Vision," an
animation technique where action is frozen while Andy explains what's
about to happen. The new series is being produced by CineGroupe's
Michel Lemire (KIDS FROM ROOM 402, LION OF OZ, HEAVY METAL F.A.K.K.2)
and directed by Tim Deacon (LION OF OZ). According to Marie-Claude
Beauchamp, executive vice president of development and production
financiang, "We are delighted to continue our relationship with
TELETOON with whom we have long enjoyed a successful partnership with
numerous series including MEGA BABIES, which was the network's number
one new show in its first season."
