Cartoon adopts rights to Taffy’s ‘Pet Alien’

Rollout in 160 countries by end of 2005

HOLLYWOOD — Cartoon Network has acquired the rights to 26 half-hours of the CGI-animated comedy “Pet Alien” from Taffy Entertainment.

Series, produced by Mike Young Prods. and distributed by its subsidiary Taffy, will premiere second quarter next year.

“Pet Alien” will also roll out on Cartoon’s other broadcast services in 160 countries throughout Europe, Latin America and Asia by the end of 2005.

CGI-animated show is a screwball laffer about four aliens who take up residence with 12-year-old Earthling Tommy, a bit of an underdog among his classmates. The aliens busy themselves trying to help Tommy navigate pre-adolescence.

“From the start, ‘Pet Alien’ was created with Cartoon Network’s irreverent audience in mind,” said MYP/Taffy principal-exec producer Bill Schultz. “In addition to the slapstick physical comedy, the series has attitude and a strong point of view.”

“Pet Alien” is based on a property created by Jeff Muncy of John Doze Studios and is co-produced by Antefilm/TF1 France; Crest, India; and Telegael, Ireland.
