Frederator Studios will bring one of its Too Cool! Cartoons Incubator’s digital series to television with the help of Australia-based animation studio, Studio Moshi.
Frederator and Studio Moshi will co-produce the cartoon, “Rocket Dog,” for TV. The kids’ series comes from Mel Roach, an Australian animator who developed the show from a short film she originally pitched to Frederator a couple years back (they actually solicited her pitch after discovering her Tumblr).
“Rocket Dog” follows a boy and his rocket-powered dog as they go on lots of crazy adventures. Since launching on Channel Frederator’s Cartoon Hangover in 2013, the series has gotten about 1.5 million views. Each episode for TV will run for 11 minutes (so there will be two episodes per time slot), and Frederator and Studio Moshi are developing 52 of them so far.
“Rocket Dog” marks the first series from Too Cool! Cartoons Incubator, which is also behind the popular digital series “Bee & PuppyCat,” to move to TV. Frederator Studios will distribute the series across North American television, while Studio Moshi will cover distribution in other global territories.
