Squeeze’s Animated Comedy Cracké Lands on CANAL+


QUÉBEC: The animated slapstick series Cracké, created and produced by Squeeze, is scheduled to begin airing on French broadcaster CANAL+ this fall.

Cracké centers on an anxious ostrich father named Ed who is always trying to protect his eight eggs. The 52×1-minute program is also slated for broadcast in Monaco, Andorra, Switzerland, Mauritius and Africa, among many other territories. The show currently airs on TELETOON in Canada, where it is produced.

“It’s a real honor for Squeeze to see our TV series being welcome in a country with such a rich film and TV culture,” commented Denis Doré, the president and co-founder of Squeeze. “Québec and France have always been close, especially when it comes to humor! This collaboration shows once again that the talent made in Québec has a tremendous potential to cross the borders.”

Laurence Blaevoet, the director of the youth division at CANAL+, added: “We are pleased to broadcast Cracké on CANAL+ Family. This TV series represents everything we are looking for: absurd humor and a very high quality of animation.”
