Studio B Brings Lassie Home
Created 06/27/2002 - 23:00
Canadian animation house Studio B
recently unveiled a roster of new shows, including plans for an
all-new preschool series based on the '50s live-action series LASSIE.
Created for LASSIE rights-holder Classic Media and illustrated by
Rebecca Dart (WHAT ABOUT MIMI?), the new 2D animated series (52 x
11-minutes) will maintain the spirit of the original series but
feature everyone's favorite collie in all new adventures as a puppy.
Studio B is also lining up some wackier projects including Gerry
Fournier's HEADCASES, about contrary Siamese twins Luke and Larry;
and SPOT THE CAT, a Flash animated series following the antics of a
confused cat who thinks he's a dog. SPOT THE CAT is created by Studio
B's Billy Zeats and designed by Rod Filbrandt (DRY SHAVE, ED, EDD N
EDDY). Studio B is currently in development with England's Pesky
Entertainment, Egmont Imagination and broadcaster YTV on CRIME
CRACKERS (26 x 22-minutes), which follows the adventures of a
detective dog named Chuckles.
