The subject of today’s Crowdfund Friday is Kit ^n^ Kate, a new animated series concept from Toonbox Animation Studios and written by Michael Mennies (The Fixies) and veteran New York animation director Mike de Seve (who directed sequences on Beavis and Butt-Head Do America and DreamWorks’ Madagascar). Intended for children ages 2-5, it teaches life lessons about important things like friendship, safety and patience.
Toonbox has launched a Kickstarter campaign to begin production on the first 6 episodes of the show, which stars two feline siblings who, while on magical adventures around the world, are confronted with choices, both good and bad. When bad decisions are made, things don’t worked out as planned and they must retrace their steps, figure out where they went wrong and repeat their journey, this time leading to a happy ending.
With 13 days remaining in their campaign they are a long way away from their $300,000 goal but the project looks fun and worthwhile. Backer rewards include downloads of wallpapers, soundtracks, episodes and an assortment of merchandise like stickers, T-shirts and buttons.
