Pink Kong Studios Launch ‘Urban Tails’ Rap Series at MIPCOM
17 Oct 2017 :
This year at MIPCOM, Pink Kong Studios is getting ready to release another great showcase for their TV series Urban Tails.

The star of the show this time being “Mista C-Lion”, a cool Seal-ebrity that struts his stuff around San Francisco Bay.  

Urban Tails is a 52x2min 2D animated series where we see Animal Music Artists ooze attitude as their videos play in the Urban Tails Music Chart show. Filled with funny character-driven content the series is energetic, unpredictable and upbeat, presenting the viewers with a unique take on Urban Wildlife.

Niamh Herrity, producer in Pink Kong Studios said:

“This series is something very unique.  It’s funny and visually appealing, while also educating the audience in a stealth like way about cool animals around the globe!”

Each episode is a music video that educates us about what life is really like for the creatures living amongst us in our cities. With strong lyrics and a visual style that emulates 1990’s videos, Urban Tails is sure to have children and their nostalgic parents engaged in co-viewing.

“We’re heading to MIPCOM with the second sample episode, Mista C-Lion from the city of San Francisco. It’s great to be able to showcase another episode filled with Wild Rhymes, Wild Beats and Wildlife!” says Herrity, who secured development funding for the series from the Irish Film Board.

According to Pink Kong Studios Creative Director, Aoífe Doyle:

“These seriously catchy tunes will stick in your head for days.”

The lively series will have audiences tuning in for their daily cool music fix.

“The first showcase of Urban Tails “Paws n Claws” was nominated for Best TV Pilot at Cartoons on the Bay 2017. Paws n Claws are a Salt ‘N’ Pepa style Fox rap duo from Dublin who set the record straight…foxes are clever and not sly- “Don’t believe all you read, don’t believe the hype!”. We can’t wait to show what we have in store for “Mista C-Lion!” continues Doyle.
