Baboon Animation Adds Israeli Co-Pro ‘Cheez N Nugget’ to Plate

Multi-Emmy-winning company Baboon Animation (Angry Birds, Gigantosaurus) has joined forces with Fonda Snyder and Israeli creators Neta Holzer and Allon Zaslansky to produce Cheez N Nugget: Gone Bad, an animated slapstick buddy comedy about the unlikely and undying friendship between two fun foods.

The series is executive produced by industry veteran Snyder (Storyopolis, Alchemy Ink). The collaborators are searching out production partners, distribution and broadcasters for the tasty new buddy comedy.

Synopsis: Cheez and Nugget are two best friends living in a food product world, where it’s super cool to be fresh, healthy, low-calorie, low-fat, gluten-free, lactose-free, organic … and, they are not. One is a stinky cheese ball, a former adorable child star, and Nugget is — well, a nugget, origins unknown.

When this unlikely pair finds out they share the exact same expiration-stamp-they create the best bucket list ever, determined to do it all! These two will do anything to live every day to the fullest, even if it means leaving a trail of destruction behind them — which happens every time.

The concept was inspired by Snyder, conceptualized by Holzer (animation director) and Zaslansky (writer) and written by the team at Baboon. The series is planned as a 2D animated, 26 x 11′ show for kids aged 6-11 employing a POC cast. The show will also be developed as a podcast through Baboon’s new voice company.

“When it comes to buddy teams, Cheez n Nugget take the cake. I mean literally in episode six when they take the cake out to lunch. And out to lunch is really what this show is,” says Baboon Animation’s Mike de Seve, co-creator of top-rated slapstick series Taffy (Cyber Group Studios / Warner Bros. Discovery EMEA — formerly Turner Broadcasting System Europe).

Snyder adds, “It’s got friendship and heart that leaps off the plate and does a dance in your lap so make sure not to forget your napkin.”
