MUMBAI: Lamput, the hilarious animated chase comedy, created by Mumbai-based Vaibhav Studios, has been picked up for a third season by Cartoon Network and will run on the channel in Asia Pacific.

Cartoon Network has won critical acclaim for Lamput as the Best Case Study and Best Animated Episode in the Animated Frames Award category at FICCI FRAMES 2017 and 2018 respectively. The short series also received Asian Academy Creative Awards for Best 2D Animation in 2018.

The series started life as batches of micro-shorts of about 15 seconds as well as shorts of up to two minutes. The new season will comprise a mixture of 21x5’ and 21x2’ episodes, and will roll out from early 2020.

Lamput is the ultimate in non-dialogue, slapstick chase animation. Lamput is a gooey orange substance that escaped from a secret laboratory. Two scientists, Specs Doc and Skinny Doc, are trying their best to catch him. But always a master of disguise, he escapes from right under their noses.

Vaibhav Kumaresh, creator of Lamput and founder of Vaibhav Studios, said: “It’s great to know that the crazy adventures of Lamput will continue. And it’s completely heartening to see the amazing viewership the show has received so far across the globe! Big thanks to everyone at Cartoon Network for all the support.”

Lamput already has a devoted following. On YouTube, its clips have amassed 300 million views, as well as an additional 250 million views on Cartoon Network, POGO and the Cartoon Network Watch and Play app in Asia Pacific#.

Leslie Lee, VP of Cartoon Network, Boomerang and POGO in Asia Pacific, added: “From their studio in Mumbai, Vaibhav and his team pour enormous amounts of energy into this creation and it’s awesome to see the results. It’s an excellent achievement for Lamput – a homegrown Indian series – to reach a global audience.”

In Asia Pacific, Cartoon Network adopts a virtual studio model for its original animation projects, identifying creators, artists and studios from right around the region for global audiences. Other series in production include Monster Beach, which is expected to launch in late 2019.
