Gruppo Alcuni Launches New Slapstick Cartoon


Gruppo Alcuni has launched Vlady & Mirò, a slapstick cartoon now available on RaiPlay.

Co-produced by Gruppo Alcuni and Rai Ragazzi, the series revolves around Mirò the raccoon’s wacky antics to get Vlady the bear to stop his incessant snoring during winter hibernation. Vlady & Mirò is set to air on Rai Yoyo in early February.

Producer Francesco Manfio said: “We were inspired to create this series during Kidscreen 2020, and now we’ll be presenting it at the 2022 Summit. The plot is straightforward and classic, with all the absurdities and gags at the core of pure ‘slapstick,’ which, by the way, comes from the Italian commedia dell’arte traditional wooden clapper, the batacchio.”
