Boat Rocker Teams with The Operating Room for Stuffed


Boat Rocker and Los Angeles-based independent animation production company The Operating Room are developing Stuffed, based on the hit comic strip created by Erik McCurdy.

The series centers on the hilarious and absurd adventures of an irrepressible little girl and her plush toy guild. They journey beyond the highest mountains, beneath the deepest oceans and sometimes to the kitchen for cookies.

“It’s rare to find a project like Stuffed that has a loyal built-in following and all the elements of a show that will resonate with global audiences,” said Bob Higgins, executive VP of content for Kids & Family at Boat Rocker Studios.

Jon Rutherford, president of Boat Rocker Studios, Kids & Family and Rights, added, “We couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with The Operating Room to help bring Stuffed to life on-screen and continue building our robust slate of engaging and original Kids & Family content.”

“Erik’s work is phenomenal and echoes Calvin and Hobbes, which I still read to my son each night,” noted Oded Turgeman, president of The Operating Room.

The Operating Room’s managing director, Roby Freireich, said, “We are thrilled to collaborate with Boat Rocker on Stuffed, which fits Operating Room’s strategy of focusing on projects with significant franchise and licensing potential.”

“The heart and soul of Stuffed is childhood imagination, which is why it is such a joy to create,” added McCurdy.
