Counterfeit Cat

The story of an unconventional friendship between a lazy, selfish house cat and an excitable, naive alien with a mysterious destiny and a homemade purple cat suit.

The show is directed by Ben Marsaud whose previous credits include Gumball, and produced by Sarah Mattingley who we stole from Disney (with their blessing!). The show has been designed by an awesome French duo – Antoine Birot and Raphael Chabassol – based on original designs by UK artist Nick Edwards.

The challenge we accepted when making this show was to try and make a storyboard driven show in the UK ( a show where the storyboard artists are part of the core creative team adding jokes and moments of visual comedy from the beginning) as opposed to the more usual UK “script first” approach.

We are thrilled with the work Ben, Sarah and their team have done – employing a UK and a french storyboard team to deliver an incredible show. Don’t let us tell you that it’s fantastic though, you can judge for yourselves on Disney XD (but this is a show we are very proud of)!

Counterfeit Cat is co-produced by Wildseed Kids and Tricon Kids & Family.
