new Pucca episodes

now that Pucca has begun airing... already people have been recording and uploading episodes on to youtube. I can not believe how fast it happened. I guess thats a good sign. So check it out. a little sneak preview for the U.S. and Canada. the broadcast dates for Pucca in the states are as follows: "Toon Disney's Jetix programming block on weekdays will see the premiere of several new shows and marathon programming events next month. Pucca joins Jetix in its US premiere on Monday September 18, 7p, and then moves to its regular time period on Monday, September 25 at 8:30p."

this is our first episode, so we were still figuring out who the characters were and what they did. it's not our finest episode by any means, but it has it's merits.

this episode features a ninja-eating plant. it's got a "cat came back" vibe to the story, mixed with that old "little shop of horrors" chestnut. not the most original idea.... but YOU try to come up with 78 storylines!
my wife Jocelan storyboarded it, and i was in charge of the direction. i even got to animate some scenes! (the underwater sequence).

finally, Pucca the series is on the air...... in the U.K. and Netherlands. It is set to come out in the US sometime soon on Disney's "Jetix" block on ABC .. i think.. i hear they are changing one of the disney cartoon channels into a Jetix channel, where Pucca will find its US home.

If you are lucky enough to see it in Europe, you will be seeing it in it's full, unadultarated form. with few censorship edits. We had a lot of freedom on the show, which was great. but some of the stuff we did is biting us in the butt now, as the FCC rules in the states don't allow certain content from reaching our children's extremely fragile minds.

In the meantime, check out this promo material we created. which was highlighted in a recent issue of STASH magazine. there's also an article about it at COLD HARD FLASH
and don't forget to check out the official Pucca site at the JETIX website.
