CARTOON NETWORK LAUNCHES NEW ORIGINAL PRODUCTION SERIES IN INDIA

Mumbai, 26 May 2015: Clarence, the latest original animated comedy series from Cartoon Network Studios, premieres Monday, June 1, and will air weekdays at 5pm only on Cartoon Network.

Clarence follows a spirited, quirky boy who always sees the best in all things. When everyone else turns right, Clarence turns left … into a wall – but he keeps on going. Daily life is a fun and thrilling adventure for Clarence and his friends. There’s streetwise Sumo, slightly neurotic Jeff and his sassy mum Mary.

Set in small-town Aberdale, the stories are inspired by and celebrate real life triumphs and tragedies from childhood: epic dirt fights, sleepover pranks, secret tree forts and many more. Through the eyes of Clarence, and in his chubby little hands, these tales always veer off the main road, if not off the map entirely.

Comprising 24x15-minute episodes, Clarence was conceived as part of the prolific shorts development program at Cartoon Network Studios, which has resulted in six original series for the network, including Regular Show, Uncle Grandpa and Steven Universe.

Clarence joins Haddi Mera Buddy, Adventure Time, Uncle Grandpa, Gumball ki Atrangi Duniya and many more Cartoon Network original production series for a powerhouse comedic line-up this summer on Indian screens.

Launched in 1995, Cartoon Network is currently celebrating its 20th year in India.
