Turner Int’l & Cyber Group Sink Teeth into ‘Taffy’

Turner International and Cyber Group Studios have teamed up to create a new original animated series, currently titled Taffy, for the broadcaster’s second flagship kids’ channel Boomerang, across international markets. The 78 x 7 comedy will be produced in France in time to join Boomerang’s line-up of shows like Tom & Jerry, Scooby-Doo, Mr. Bean and Grizzy & the Lemmings in Q4 of 2018.

“It is an honor and a thrill for the Cyber Group Studios team of artists and authors to be working alongside the Turner International team to develop a new series for Boomerang and I hope this idea we had — Mike de Seve of Baboon Animation and myself, a couple of years ago — of creating this new slapstick character of Taffy, will become a great addition to the cartoon line up of one of the most prestigious cartoon channels in the world.”

Taffy follows the non-stop, slapstick extravaganza endured by loyal hounddog Bentley when his elderly billionaire owner Mrs. Muchmore takes in an imposter posing as wide-eyed, fluffy angora cat. Each installment sees Bentley try to reveal “Taffy” for the vermin he is – while super-clever Taffy handily frames the dog for every one of his exploits, pillagings and disastrous messes. Whether traveling from Mrs. Muchmore’s luxurious mansion to a five-star cruise, jet-setting international adventures or a visit with the President, wherever these rivals go, mayhem is sure to follow!

“With its classic-look animation style and timeless, slapstick humor, Taffy couldn’t be a more perfect fit for Boomerang,” said Cecilia Persson, Turner’s VP of Programming & Content Strategy Kids EMEA & International Kids Acquisitions and Co-Productions. “We’re very excited to be working with Cyber Group Studios to produce the show, and further our efforts to build Boomerang as a second flagship kids channel with a strong and refreshing pipeline of content.”
