Technicolor and Canada’s Mercury Filmworkstoday have partnered with Gaumont Animation to co-develop and co-produce the animated comedy television series, Atomic Puppet.

Atomic Puppet will air on Disney XD in France, the US and on other Disney XD channels around the world. In Canada, the series will air on Teletoon Canada.

“It has been tremendous fun developing this show with Mercury; and it’s exciting to now have Gaumont Animation joining the creative team,” said Steven Wendland, vice president, Technicolor.

“The humorous stories that underscore adventure and fun will be relatable to kids throughout the globe and we're excited to be working with Disney XD and Teletoon.”

Atomic Puppet sees Model City’s fearless superhero Captain Atomic transformed into a powerless puppet by his sidekick Nuclear Boy. The only way Captain Atomic can save Model City from a host of villains is by teaming up with his biggest fan, Joey Felt, who literally holds the power in his hand to channel Captain Atomic's superpowers every time he puts Atomic Puppet on his hand.

“The addition of Gaumont Animation as a co-producer and the caliber of broadcasters supporting the series are very satisfying validations of the time and creative energy Mercury and Technicolor have invested in Atomic Puppet,” added Clint Eland, president and executive producer of Mercury Filmworks.

Pierre Belaïsch, Gaumont Animation MD, said: “We are proud and excited to join Technicolor and Mercury on the production of Atomic Puppet.

“We’re particularly delighted that all our efforts and hard work during these last years have given Gaumont Animation the opportunity to participate in this future international hit series."

Atomic Puppet was created by animated television writer Mark Drop (Johnny Test, Jake and the Never Land Pirates) and writer/creator Jerry Leibowitz (The Mouse and the Monster).
