Kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE as inked a deal with Turner’s Boomerang for Mush-Mush and the Mushables, an original 52 x 11’ CGI comedy-adventure produced by La Cabane Productions (France) and THURISTAR (Belgium) in coproduction with CAKE. The series will air internationally on Boomerang (in addition to Turner Kids channels Cartoon Network, Boing and POGO in select markets) starting in 2020.
The deal follows presales to Canal+ and Piwi+ in France, VRT-Ketnet and RTBF-OUFtivi in Belgium, RTS in Switzerland and RTL Telekids in the Netherlands. La Cabane Productions and THURISTAR announced the start of production on the series last month.
Mush-Mush and the Mushables follows the adventures of Mush-Mush, his best friends Chep and Lilit, and the rest of the Mushable community as they explore, grow and discover just how fun and wild life can be. Mushables are the Guardians of the Forest, and each member has a special talent or ability – while Mush-Mush can communicate with nature, Chep has a huge memory and Lilit lights up and glows – all of this in theory at least, as they all still have a lot to learn!
The concept is created by Flemish artist Elfriede de Rooster, produced by Perrine Gauthier and directed by Joeri Christiaen (My Knight and Me).
“We are delighted to be teaming up with Turner on the forthcoming Mush-Mush and the Mushables,” said Ed Galton, CCO & MD of CAKE. “Perrine, Joeri and their team are bringing to life the original drawings to create an engaging warm-hearted series about a community of loveable mushrooms and their funny adventures that children everywhere will enjoy.”
