A New Way To Engage Fans

When I interviewed Ben Bocquelet, the creator of The Amazing World Of Gumball, he mentioned that he was fond of his cartoon’s live-action backgrounds because it gave him hope that children would watch the show and wonder, even ever so slightly, if the quaint little town of Elmore could be real; if somewhere in the […]
