Mouk Trailer

Mouk

Mary Blair, Richard Scarry, Fyodor Khitruk’s Winnie the Pooh, and anime-styled cuteness are all mashed together in this colorful trailer for Mouk, an upcoming TV series produced by French studio Millimages. It’s based on illustrator Marc Boutavant‘s book Around the World with Mouk. Sixty-two eleven-minute episodes and thirty one-minute shorts for web/mobile are currently in production.

    I love it! Do American audiences get to see this or is it for the eyes of those lucky, painterly Europeans>

    I’ve seen the book, and I’m glad the tv show captures and respects the look of the illustrations. Beautiful!

    What awesome colours!

    Where do the french get this cute sensitivity?

  • TheGunheart

    Very nice looking. I hope they air it in the U.S..

    My only problem is that the main characters aren’t quite as visually interesting as the characters they meet. The ones in the image for this post are just lovely.

    Resembles the art of 1950s Little Golden Book “the Animal Orchestra” illustrated by russian illustrator Tibor Gergely. I will try to scan, but read it every night to my kids as tykes. Ram head caught my eye and animal ears and textures.
