The company, which is known for producing series including Hilarious Home Video and Crazy Hidden Camera, will launch the series at the Asia Television Forum (ATF) next month.

“We’re delighted to be presenting Pop Toon to Asian broadcasters at the forthcoming Asia Television Forum,” says Novovision founder and president François-Xavier Poirier. “With this show, Novovision is launching into a new sector – that of animation, a genre appreciated by all audiences. Thanks to our acquisitions, we now have access to a vast range of cartoon material, enabling us to produce around 100 top-quality episodes of Pop Toon.”
