MARC WOOTTON TO VOICE DISNEY CARTOON



via CHORTLE.CO.UK

Comics to voice Disney cartoon - Marc Wootton and Kayvan Novak sign up for Counterfeit Cat
Marc Wootton and Kayvan Novak are to voice a new animated comedy series for satellite channel Disney XD.

Wootton, whose best-known comedy creation is psychic Shirley Ghostman, will voice the title character, Counterfeit Cat. And Fonejacker creator Novak will play Betty, the owner of the house where he lives.

The other main character is Gark, an alien with superpowers sent to Earth for training before saving the universe. Gark mistakes Max for a tiger who can teach him to be a hero – although the cat is more interested in watching TV and coughing up furballs. Gark has yet to be cast.

A total of 26 half-hour episodes, 52 eleven-minute ones, and 11 two-minute shorts have been commissioned from UK studio Wildseed and Canada’s Tricon Kids & Family. Counterfeit Catwill launch on Disney XD in the UK and Europe in spring next year.

Production will soon start at Wildseed’s Bristol base and the cartoons – aimed at 6-12 year-olds – will also air on Teletoon Canada.

Jesse Cleverly, creative head of the UK company: ‘This entertaining and comical new animation will capture hearts, minds and funny bones of all ages around the globe. Counterfeit Cat draws on some fantastic production talent around the world.’

It is the first TV commission for Wildseed, which has been launching comedies online since its launch in 2013.

Tonight - BRAND NEW - Marc and Julia Davis in SLEEPY TIGERS 11pm BBC Radio 4:

 "Julia Davis and Marc Wootton star as a couple of maternity nurses who run their own business "Sleepy Tigers" in this dark comedy drama. As they move into the home of some very new parents (played by Alex Macqueen and Rosie Cavaliero) the nurses quickly start to take over and dish out the advice: "You are setting a pattern for baby's future the minute he comes out of the womb. Four days in and you could have a serial killer on your hands. Six weeks on and it's a lost cause, the personality is formed. But help is at hand!" A one off that has series written all over it, this is also created by Davis and Wootton and not to be missed."
