Turner International and Cyber Group Studios are joining forces to develop a new animated series for kids to enjoy.

Dubbed Taffy, the series follows the slapstick adventures faced by hound dog Bentley when his billionaire owner, Mrs Muchmore, takes in an imposter posing as a fluffy cat.

“With its classic-look animation style and timeless, slapstick humour, Taffy couldn’t be a more perfect fit for Boomerang,” said Cecilia Persson, Turner’s VP of programming and content strategy kids EMEA and international kids acquisitions and co-productions.

“We’re very excited to be working with Cyber Group Studios to produce the show, and further our efforts to build Boomerang as a second flagship kids channel with a strong and refreshing pipeline of content.”

Set to boast 78x7-minutue series, the show will join Boomerang’s line-up of kids' properties including Tom & Jerry, Scooby-Doo, Mr Bean: The Animated Series and Grizzy & the Lemmings from Q4 2018.

Pierre Sissmann, chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios, added: “It is an honour and a thrill for the Cyber Group Studios team of artists and authors to be working alongside the Turner International team to develop a new series for Boomerang, and I hope this idea we had, Mike de Seve of Baboon Animation and myself, a couple of years ago, of creating this new slapstick character of Taffy, will become a great addition to the cartoon line up of one of the most prestigious cartoon channels in the world.”
