Petzi might be a bit muddle-headed, but he comes around! The episode “Turtle Island” from our TV series “Rasmus Klump” (Petzi) has just been awarded with the silver award for Best Animated Series at the Xiamen International Animation Festival in China. Congratulations to the team!
Here are some backgrounds by Sandra Brandstätter and Sebastian Koch of our last Sunday’s premiered tv-series ‘Trudes Tier’ (‘Trude’s Flatmate’). The next episode ‘Nachts’ will be shown this Sunday as part of the children’s series ‘Die Sendung mit der Maus’ on Das Erste starting at 11:30 am.
Both “The Gruffalo’s Child” and Cartoon Network’s “The Amazing Adventures of Gumball” are nominated in the animation category of the 2012 Children’s Baftas. Gumball-creator Ben Bocquelet together with his colleagues James Lamont and Jon Foster are also nominated for their writing work on “Gumball”. We congratulate all the teams and wish the very best for Sunday, Nov 25th!
