THE search is on for home­grown ideas for brand new car­toons.

Car­toon Net­work is col­lab­o­rat­ing with Multimedia Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (MDeC) to bring SNAPTOONS (Short New Asia Pa­cific Car­toons) to Malaysia.

The net­work is plan­ning to in­vest in unique an­i­mated ideas, tar­geted at kids and which re­flect the net­work brand prom­ise of fun, funny and fear­less.

As part of the pro­gramme, Car­toon Net­work and MDeC are invit­ing an­i­ma­tion in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, in­di­vid­ual an­i­ma­tors and an­i­ma­tion stu­dios from Malaysia to send in their pitches and see their cre­ations come to life and per­haps even join the chan­nel’s iconic char­ac­ters like Ben 10, Chow­der, The Pow­er­puff Girls and Johnny Bravo.

Ten pitches will be short­listed based on their devel­op­ment po­ten­tial, and up to five will even­tu­ally be cre­ated into broad­cast-qual­ity shorts.

Con­cepts should ap­peal to chil­dren, be in­spir­ing, smart and above all very funny. Sub­mis­sion dead­line is Dec 31.
