Abbey Home Media has struck a new agreement with McLaren to bring the much anticipated second series of Tooned50 to DVD and home entertainment.

The award winning animation, themed by McLaren's 50th anniversary this year, follows the antics of World Champion driver Jenson Button and his new team mate Sergio Perez, as McLaren celebrates its half century with a host of surprise guests.

The series features not only the voices of Button and Perez themselves, but also includes the voices of Bruno Senna and Tom Hunt.

The planned release date for the Tooned50 DVD is December 9th 2013 and will be available via www.mclarenstore.com as well as online and high street retailers.

Dan Harris, general manager of Abbey Home Media, said: "We are delighted to be releasing Tooned50 on DVD, the second in the series.

"The quality and humour in the series is wonderful and will appeal to F1 fans young and old. It is great to see the former McLaren drivers featuring in this series, including the legends James Hunt and Ayrton Senna."

John Allert, group brand director of McLaren, added: "Following the runaway success of Tooned's launch series last year, it has been a joy to introduce some of the legends of the sport to toned in 2013.

"Iconic World Champions such as Senna and Prost, Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt and double World Champion Mika Hakkinen. It was humbling to work with out living Champions - all of whom recorded their own voiceovers - and we are thrilled that family members Tom Hunt and Bruno Senna agreed to voice their famous namesakes.

"We are delighted to be collaborating again with our partners Framestore on the series and with Abbey Home Media to create a features-packed 2013 DVD, which will give 'all areas access' to these racing legends recording their episodes, as well as a fascinating insight in to how the series was brought to life."
