Mumbai, India – Turner has won critical acclaim for Lamput at FICCI Frames 2017 for the Best Case Study in the Animated Frames category. Lamput, the original series, which features a gooey orange nutcase that outwits a pair of hapless doctors, has received praise for its ability to tell multiple stories and inspire laughter.
Lamput is created by Mumbai-based Vaibhav Studios and has been on-air, online and on-app since 2016 in Asia Pacific on Cartoon Network and POGO, and worldwide on Boomerang, Turner’s second flagship kids channel.
Mark Eyers, Chief Content Officer for Turner’s Kids Networks in Asia Pacific, commented, “We couldn’t be happier for this little orange character who has truly sparked to life over the last year to delight kids everywhere. This award demonstrates the depth of talent in India and how a simple idea can be transformed into something shown on screens around the world.”
This is three years in a row that Turner original content has been shortlisted at FICCI Frames. Cartoon Network won Best Animated Film for its Roll No. 21 – Kris in Bollywood in 2016 and Best Animated Film for Roll No. 21 – Ticket to Australia the year before. Lamput was greenlit by Turner Asia Pacific’s virtual studio as part of Cartoon Network’s shorts programme, which connects artists, animators, writers and studios from around the region.
