Atomic Cartoons Goes for the Jackpot at NATPE 2002

(January 16, 2002)
Vancouvers ?High Energy Animation studio, Atomic Cartoons is heading to Las Vegas for NATPE 2002 with a collection of proprietary properties. Their catalogue includes original shows such as the internet hit, ?Dog in a Box with 2 Wheels, and their Mip Jr. success story, ?Atomic Betty.

?One of our goals is to see ?Dog in a Box with 2 Wheels make the jump from the net to Television, says Trevor Bentley, Atomics CEO and VP of Co-Production, ?We are also looking to finalize our co-production partners for Atomic Betty.

?Atomic Betty is a new, half-hour animated TV series about a little girl with a big secret with U.S. distribution being handled by Bettys Executive Producer, Phil Roman.


?We are extremely excited to be working with Phil Roman on ?Atomic Betty. Phil is an animation guru and his experience will surely make an already great property even better, said an exuberant Samantha Daley, Atomic Cartoons Producer. ?The show follows the imaginary adventures of Atomic Betty, the outer-space alter-ego of a young stay-at-home girl named Betty. Even though Atomic Betty is based on a girl, we feel the show will reach both genders because it follows one little girls way of dealing with the unfamiliar and sometimes difficult world of childhood.

?Dog in a Box with 2 Wheels is an offbeat animated comedy series about a randy little dog with wheels for hind legs. ?Dog, as friends and fans know him, has devoted his life to vigilante justice after a senile geriatric ruined his life in a freak oxygen tank/cigarette-smoking accident. The series is geared towards an older audience, teens and young adults, in an 11min. x 26 episode format.

Other fresh NATPE properties include: ?Kooters Toolshed, an inbred cooking and travel show; ?BadCop, a funky Dirty Harry meets Shaft meets Bass Masters; ?Dirty Lil Baster, the gritty saga of a bitter chicken bent on destroying the world; and the endearing ?Dennis the Dragon, created by Canadas top political cartoonist, Raeside.
