Cartoon Network introduces 'Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends'

Cartoon Network, the number one kids' entertainment channel, has introduced the latest, original animated series from Cartoon Network Studios -'Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.'

Craig McCracken, the creator of the Emmy Award Winning series 'The Powerpuff Girls,' has created this series too. It is a character-based comedy that talks about the wonderful bond of friendship and how much fun one can have in the company of their best buddies. The series features eminent theatre personality, Tom Alter, as voice of the Administrator of Foster's Home - Herriman.

This initiative is reiterative of the network's localisation strategy and its commitment to bring quality-animated programmes to cartoon lovers in India. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is McCracken's highly anticipated follow-up to Cartoon Network's most successful animated project, The Powerpuff Girls.

Asked about the rationale behind creating the character of an Imaginary Friend, McCracken said, "I asked myself the reasons a kid would create an Imaginary Friend and I learnt that they would create a friend who would be a protector, a companion to hang out with, a friend out of loneliness or a scapegoat to blame everything on. So, by taking these basic motivations, we then created many of the characters for Foster's."
