Claster debuts ani ‘Mutant League’ strip

First there was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Now comes “Mutant League,” which Claster Television has announced as a new firstrun animated weekly series for fall 1994.

A parody of professional sports, “Mutant League” is based on the Electronic Arts homevideo games, which were released in June with an initial shipment of more than 175,000 units.

The sports games, now among the top 10 bestsellers, are expected to surpass 1 million units, with new releases slated throughout 1994 and ’95, according to Claster.

Way North Prods. will produce 13 half-hours of the series, which Claster will offer on a barter basis.

The syndicator is planning an extensive cross-promotion launch campaign, which will include trading cards inserted into national magazines, TV advertising, a mall tour and handbooks.

In addition to “Mutant League,” Claster next year will offer new episodes of “Baby Huey,” expand “Transformers Generation 2” into a strip and offer a second season of the strip series “The Pink Panther.”

Claster also distributes “Conan the Adventurer,””G.I. Joe,””Casper and Friends” and “Romper Room.”
