Animals Watching Themselves
Jetpack Distribution has acquired worldwide rights to cartoon spoof animal documentary Critters TV, from Dublin-based Turnip & Duck. The 26 x 11-minute, 2D Flash/live-action hybrid series for kids four to eight was funded by Screen Ireland, RTÉjr and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the support of incentives for the Irish Film Industry provided by the Government of Ireland. The sketchstyle series gives audiences an animal’s-eye view on nature docs as different animal families gather round the TV, offering humorous observations and amazing facts about the natural world. The show features six animal families : the foxes, badgers, squirrels, ticks, hedgehogs and owls. Each day, as they tune into their favorite live-action TV shows (Critters TV), audiences get to watch them in their natural habitats, learning real facts about animals in the real world, while being entertained by the animated critters! We’d rather watch these animal stars than live-action reality show bores any day!
