Buck and Buddy creators, Brian Chong, Walid Omar, and Lorna Henderson, brought Baboon aboard to write these quirky friends into action. “We had a great time crafting crazy comedy scenarios for these awesome slapstick insect buddies,” says Joe Vitale, who is Baboon’s head of series and Buck and Buddy’s head writer. “We immediately loved their madcap world and had a blast pushing every gag to its max. I guess it paid off.”
Baboon Animation’s founder Mike de Seve says, “We’re so thrilled for Lil Critter, they’re such a great studio. It’s a pleasure to be part of this fantastic show where friendship wins against ridiculous odds.” Many of the same team also write on the hit Warner Media slapstick cartoon Taffy, now in its second season and a top performer in more than 100 countries globally.
De Seve adds that Baboon is out in front in emerging regions. “Baboon has become one of the most accomplished animation screenwriting teams worldwide,” he explains. “We’ve shepherded brands from over 50 countries, taking them from local to global-market-ready.“
A DreamWorks feature animation alumnus, de Seve believes the animation industry has reached a game-changing moment. "We’re seeing the freshest new ideas coming from Asia and Africa—it’s thrilling to be collaborating on them. Baboon has also just launched Baboon Animation Africa to develop new talent in that comedy frontier."
