Cartoon Network Asia Pacific acquires Chaplin and Co

Cartoon Network Asia Pacific has announced the acquisition of popular animated series ‘Chaplin and Co’, a slapstick nod to one of Hollywood’s most pivotal early stars, Charlie Chaplin.

A co-production between India’s DQ Entertainment and France-based Method Animation, Chaplin and Co was developed in consultation with the Chaplin family, making the series truly representative of the world-famous screen icon.

Layla Lewis, Director, Programming, Acquisitions & Development, Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, Inc, said, “‘Chaplin and Co’ offers a contemporary take on Charlie’s timeless humour and endearing charm. We’re thrilled to introduce his comedic adventures to a whole new generation of Cartoon Network Asia Pacific fans.”

In true Chaplin style, ‘Chaplin and Co’ is a slapstick comedy without dialogue – reminiscent of his many famous films. Almost a century later, his most enduring traits have been transformed into a side-splittingly funny computer-generated animated series.

Tapaas Chakravarti, Chairman & CEO of DQ Entertainment (International) Ltd, said, “The legend of Charlie Chaplin will be brought back in high-end animated short films to delight children and families. The legendary entertainer will once again entertain audiences in his new CGI avatar. We believe Cartoon Network is the perfect partner for ‘Chaplin and Co’ to bring this side-splitting series to audiences in this region.”

Running six minutes long over 104 episodes, ‘Chaplin and Co’ will air across all of Cartoon Network’s Asia Pacific markets, more than 26 countries, from the first half of 2012.
