Animation/live-action quiz show Skatoony is back for a second round, as Teletoon Canada orders a second season from marblemedia.
Production began on Monday in Toronto on 26 half-hour English and 26 half-hour French episodes, and it’s also expanding its multiplayer online games on Skatoony.ca.
“It encourages education and learning through fun and engaging trivia games,” said executive producer/partner Mark Bishop in a statement. “There is a high-level of interactivity both on-air and online that resonates well with kids.”
Live-action segments are being filmed in front of a green screen and for season two, the tween contestants will be up against popular characters from Teletoon series such as Total Drama Revenge and Jimmy Two-Shoes.
Meanwhile, kids who log on to teletoon.com to play the marble-produced Skatoony Home Game will be pitted against other kids and CG characters in real time and will also earn Skatoony Bucks to purchase in-game items.
The series is based on the format from Cartoon Network UK, and is distributed internationally by Distribution360.
