CN gives Tom & Jerry Asia Pacific twist

Cartoon Network’s spin-off short Lamput Meets Tuzki

APOS: WarnerMedia’s Cartoon Network Asia Pacific has announced three new originals, including a shortform pilot order of reimagined kids’ cartoon Tom & Jerry.

The Tom & Jerry pilot, targetted at the Asia Pacific market, will see the cat and mouse duo battle it out from the streets of Mumbai to the night markets of Taipei and the Australian outback.

Elsewhere, Cartoon Network Asia Pacific has greenlit the fourth season of Lamput, which follows two scientists as they try to catch a gooey orange substance, named Lamput, that has managed to escape from a secret laboratory.

Lamput Meets Tuzki, a seven-minute special which brings together the characters Lamput and Tuzki, a Chinese rabbit, has also been commissioned.

Leslie Lee, head of kids in APAC at WarnerMedia, told the digital version of the APOS media conference: “Audiences have been laughing at Tom & Jerry’s chase antics for over 80 years. But this is the first time we’re looking at transporting the frenemies to our region and reimagining their antics in an authentic and distinctly local context. We are working closely with Warner Bros Animation and Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank to bring these new adventures to life.”
