News: Studio 4°C animates shonen-style fight for Cartoon Network series The Amazing World of Gumball

In an episode that aired on Friday (August 19th), the British-American animated Cartoon Network show The Amazing World of Gumball featured an “anime-style” battle as one of its alternate animation set pieces. The series is famed for switching up its styles between CGI, puppets, stop-motion and more in various sequences, and this particular clip, “Mom vs. Mom”, notably features animation work by Studio 4°C of Tekkonkinkreet and Project Itoh: Harmony.

The above clip was first streamed by Cartoon Network on Saturday, and the cartoon’s creator, Ben Bocquelet, confirmed on Twitter the day the episode aired that Studio 4°C produced the sequence. This month and in July, he also posted two images on Instagram featuring the two character designs by Tokuyuki Matsutake of Dimension W.

The series premiered in 2011, produced by Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe, based in London. Cartoon Network describes the show as follows:

Gumball, the amusing blue cat with a giant head, and his best buddy Darwin, a pet goldfish who sprouted legs, step up the hilarity and hijinks in Cartoon Network’s comedy series, The Amazing World of Gumball.

  1. I just watched this episode yesterday. Gumball is always hilarious and well-animated, but the fight sequence in that episode is fantastic. The character designs suit the characters and the fight is just awesome to watch.
