London-based family entertainment firm Cake has partnered with animation house Titmouse (“Turbo FAST
) and C3, the owners of the Three Stooges estate and brand, for the venture, which has been launched to potential buyers at Licensing Expo.
Titmouse will produce 52, 11-minutes segments featuring the classic slapstick humor for which the Stooges are known. The stories will have limited dialogue, making the show ideal for global audiences and multiple platforms.
"I grew up watching The Three Stooges with my father,” says Chris Prynoski, president, Titmouse. “When I signed on to helm this new show, I made a blood oath to my Dad that I would treat the Stooges brand like it was a newborn baby Fabergé egg. With the cartoon making team we have lined up at Titmouse, it's sure to be the most batty, bananas, insanely giggle-inducing version of the Three Stooges your eyeballs and brainhole have ever experienced."
