Berkeley Breathed’s Pete & Pickles coming to TV

Technicolor has announced that it is moving into television animated programming and will begin their efforts by bringing Berkeley Breathed’s Pete & Pickles to the small screen.

“I told the folks at Technicolor,” recounts Breathed, “that the only way I could get lured to the world of small screen pixels is if a company were to declare their intent to make the coolest, most unique animated show for children’s television — one that shakes up the art-form like my son shakes the grocery bag full of eggs just because its fun. The sneaky schemers agreed.”

No dates have been announced, just the licensing acquisition. Stay tuned.

  1. If it goes well, could it lay the ground work for an ‘Opus’ film? If I remember, Breathed said no film would be right for a strip unless the film makers brought the strip artist in, and no studio would do that. I think that’s what killed the original ‘Opus’ movie.

    If this goes well…well, who knows?
