a Classic Take on Modern Toons
Chucky Chicken is an animated comedy series geared towards families with children between the ages of 8 and 12. It stars the world’s most charming rooster, Chucky Chicken, and showcases a broad range of humorous situations that showcase his pluck and occasional awkwardness, along with his long-beloved charm and good heartedness.
The series is a nod to the theatrical cartoons, ranging anywhere between 7 to 11 minutes in length, and puts the lead characters in different roles and environments to tell a variety of stories. Like Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny before him, Chucky and the gang can be cast in a number of different roles, interact with a plethora of villains, and their adventures can take place in many different lands, times, or eras.
The shorts rely heavily on slapstick comedy, including dynamite, anvils, and other classic WB troupes; however much like the Looney Tunes, they know that they’re actors, and may occasionally use meta humor and break character to showcase their displeasure with the script, story, role, etc. This way, it harkens back to the era of Hollywood animated shorts, and can also play off modern troupes like streaming services, YouTube subscribers, social media, etc.
