If ostrich octuplets are your thing, Canadian animation studio Squeeze is gearing up to premiere Cracké Family Scramble, a new 3D-animated series based on its global hit Cracké.
In the 52-ep non-dialogue series, ostrich dad Ed returns to care for his eight offspring, who have finally hatched and are ready to wreak havoc. The original show’s one-minute episodes have expanded to seven minutes in the new version, which also introduces a group of crow characters. Cracké creators Patrick Beaulieu and Denis Doré are behind the spinoff as well.
London-based Aniventure (Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank) has come on board to support development and distribute the new series, which is set to deliver in July. The prodcos are also premiering two episodes at Annecy tomorrow (June 15).
Cracké found a home on Disney Channels across the EMEA (where it aired in 100 countries starting in 2016) and Japan. And Viacom18 also picked it up to air on Nickelodeon in India, bringing the show’s total reach to 185 countries.
Cracké Family Scramble was financed in part by Canadian broadcaster Télé-Québec and federal tax credits.
