Toonz & ELE Team for Drac and Skeletons


Toonz Media Group has partnered with India’s ELE Animations to co-produce the spooky chase comedy series Drac and Skeletons.

Targeted to 4- to 7-year-olds, Drac and Skeletons is about two netherworld rivals trying to outwit each other as three prankster skeletons take refuge at Count Dracula Junior’s castle only to stay there forever.

The 78×7-minute animated series in 2D digital format will have two versions: an international version in English and an Indian version in Hindi.

Toonz will handle pre- and postproduction of the series. Voiceover and postproduction of the international version will be handled by Telegael, a Toonz affiliate company based in Ireland. Toonz will also have exclusive distribution rights across all media and platforms, including L&M rights worldwide, except Ireland. ELE Animations will be responsible for the animation production of the series.

“We consider this agreement with ELE Animations to co-produce this Indian IP as a strategic one as Drac and Skeletons has a universal theme,” P Jayakumar, CEO of Toonz Media Group, said and added that there will be both domestic and international versions because of the interest from broadcasters.

Durga Prasad, director of ELE Animations, said, “When we first discussed the project with Toonz, we decided then and there that it is a kind of IP we should be part of. It has all the ingredients to be a fan favorite among international and domestic audiences.”
